I don`t think Bean hates it. It`s just a funny gag with the blue car that allways seems to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. :)

It's just he can be a bit of a bully sometimes and enjoys making it flip over for his own amusement. It's like a child knocking on the glass of a fish tank.

In episode 3 he gets stuck with a steep charge for the multistorey car park so he tries to leave through the entrance. He makes various attempts which fail (including one where gets past the barrier but a Mercedes arrives at the entrance, he is forced to go back through the barrier and gets trapped in again). Eventually he sees the Reliant arrive and charges towards it, it reverses away from the entrance and he gets out, while the poor Reliant turns overs on it's side.

I think this car should be four stars. It shows up in almost every episode.

Not every episode, only few ones. And it is each time in a minor action.

The Reliant Regal 3/25 did have a rearward sloping rear window. ;)

In Mr. Bean's Diary, it says that the driver of the van is a neighbor he hates.

I'm a bit shocked about the ideas of my brother-in-law. Now he wants to have such a car :wow: - because he liked the scenes with it in the Mr.Bean-show so much. :/

"Only for 800 Pounds in good, running condition. For sale nearby Manchester. How much is the ferry, because there aren't bargain-flights from Berlin?" This I have heard yesterday. Maybe he will ask me to enjoy him, because his English isn't that good. As I know him, he will have the idea to drive it back home on its own wheels, from Manchester to his town, East of Berlin, close to the Polish border...

If his 1977' Mercedes 280 SE and the 1970' Opel Kadett B aren't enough - between 15 motorbikes. :/
A Trabant is too all-day and boring, for him in the "Eastern Zone"


Which I haven't known before: the Reliant is illegal in Germany. Due its flammable plastic body and the unsafe three-wheel-construction. But my brother-in-law will drive it with his red collector's plates, then it should be possible.

Hopefully his wife will cancel his idea. I like to travel and to make such crazy car-buying-tours abroad, it wouldn't be the first time for me - but not going back in SUCH a car. :cry:

@ingo: Your brother-in-law must be slightly insane: aren't there enough eccentric cars around that aren't death-traps? I remember following a Regal 3/25 which performed the same feat as bent8rover's above on a sharp bend near Wallingford.
BTW I remember reading somewhere that the successor to the Regal, the equally notorious Robin, was quite popular in Austria!

This was the only episode where the Reliant gets the last laugh, as Bean's Mini crashes off-screen during the closing credits.

It wasn't, I don't know where he got his information from, but the reliant that was used in the car park sketch and the dentist e.c.t was the same one used in the first episode, and it hasn't been cut up its still around, and still works, but its been re painted as an only fools and horses van, a fate most of these seem to suffer.
