Re: Cars For Sale bit

I used to take it very personally when people criticised the way we did things but I'm a bit more sanguine now. We simply can't be all things to all men (that's man as in species rather than gender, before anyone bridles). I'm not advocating targeting the 'low hanging fruit' so to speak, because the...

Re: Cars For Sale bit

I've been debating how best to answer this for a few days and still not come up with something I'm satisfied with, so I'm just going to go with the following. I, and to a greater extent Simon, have been banging the drum for the forum for an incredibly long time, against not inconsiderable opposition...

Re: 'Smart' motorways

But how 'Smart' is it to create or buy something which you can't control and which could easily send you hurtling to your doom, with no way to either intervene or in any way have a chance of moderating and / or altering the outcome ...... You could always try switching it off and switching it back ...

Re: Auto insurance price hikes to be banned

To be honest, I don't think classic insurers are the real villians in this instance. I mean yes, I've no doubt it occurs, but I think 'mainstream' insurance is the big boy in this scam.

What IS the point of something like that :-?
What's the point (now) of a Minor? I guess he's just like a lot of Minor owners, wanting his car to express his individuality

Re: 'Smart' motorways

There's another article in the paper today (apologies for the source, it's the only paper I saw that covered the story today) on this issue with a couple of statements from the AA which really get to the heart of how feelings are running high https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9597981/Now-AA-s...

Re: Tracker Systems

I'm still not convinced this tech is anything other than a gimmick now and has yet to reach sufficient maturity that owners can actually rely on it. I WANT to be convinced because it's a great theory to have your car phone you and tell you where it is if it gets nicked

Re: Newton Commercial Suffolk Reclining Seats

I put a pair of Suffolks in my Traveller when I built it back in 09, and I'm now considering replacing them with a new pair as they've simply worn out over the last seventy odd thousand miles. Seat comfort is a hugely subjective thing, but I wouldn't dream of NOT having a Suffolk. I have significant...

Re: This could turn a few heads.....

I'm afraid that that is laughably costly. I've seen these go for a couple of hundred quid. Any decent one has had the axle removed and replaced with indespension units which can be calibrated for the lack of weight

Re: Insurance

Always read the small print I found out I was not insured unless garaged at night :o I wasn't either, but I think that's where customers have to understand the questions and answer carefully. My Traveller is always garaged, and when the insurance question came up I answered Yes to 'G#Is the car gar...
