  1. Driving without a MOT is OK if the vehicle is booked into the Big Brother computer for a test.
  2. A boat would surely have the water on the outside. Is yours a Bini as well ? Jaguars appear to be very picky on damp getting in under the seal, causing warnings to appear on the dashboard and preventing moving out of park on the auto gearboxes.
  3. Insurance companies effectively rule the roost and the road these days If your partner (with his van) cannot prove his travel was a one off visit to an address not linked in any way to his trade, then you will be paying the fine sooner. As above, he is lucky not to have had his vehicle seized when stopped by plod. As for solicitors, pfffft.
  4. Catchup TV won a court case a couple of years back, their five second stream delay was found to be appropriate as meaning the content was not 'live'.
  5. Theoretically then, some enterprising young person could webcam mainstream UK channels for others to search for online.
  6. To call them a useless bunch of muppets would be an insult to useless muppets. http://www.transportxtra.com/magazines/parking_review/news/?ID=34996
  7. BMW worried about Jaguar 3 ? But monsieur, you are really spoiling us
  8. The colonists were able to steal land from the Native Americans by introducing smallpox in blankets donated to them. Now, if you could spray something similar on what's left in the property....
  9. I would be more concerned as to where the original bumper might be (on an unlit street, on a major carriageway, halfway off a pavement, just waiting to trap a pedestrian/cyclist/motorcyclist.) Not getting out of the car to find out why there was a 'bang' would justify receiving a £100 penalty. Just where is it ? (I trust the bus lane was not active when you took the image)
  10. 28 days puts the final date for covering the cost quite a bit beyond the Yule festivities, so you have plenty of time. You are most welcome
  11. Take it back to the original garage and get them to repair it. Since they claim T-cut will fix it, it should be a five minute job for the garage that gave the advice.
  12. The AA that is around now has absolutely nothing to do with the AA that was in existence 25 years ago.
  13. If the bike was reclaimed by the insurance company, then you no longer have the bike/scooter. You haven't bought it back by any chance ?
  14. Depends on what image you have sent in for the updated licence, they may not appreciate a picture of Mickey Mouse for example.
  15. An MOT test pass has absolutely no link with the engine cooling system, any respectable garage should know that.
  16. When I required the documentation to tax a vehicle earlier this year, my insurance broker was able to email me an attachment containing the policy that I could print off. Earlier they had claimed that it would not be possible but I was able to deal with a different department that could. It took about four hours to process but at least I could get everything to the post office couter the same day. It would only cost a phone call to ask.
  17. Since tyre tread has absolutely nothing to do with the wheel it happens to be on, you might be better off having a friend with a modicum of mechanical knowledge go with you next time.
  18. Batman did, I'm not sure if ay PCN's got delivered to his home address though
  19. You did not think to give the car a basic check before getting in and driving ? The responsibility of using a vehicle with defective tyres remains wholly with the driver
  20. A trip back to the hospital to check for concussion resulting in amnesia.
  21. http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?410530-Driver-data-to-be-open-to-motor-insurers
  22. Get as many pictures as you can while the engine is in pieces, and post them. What is the engine code of your car (three digits) ?
  23. Yes, but have you received any images of the upturned ticket that this warden has recorded with his 'body camera' ? You never know, there may be no link between what you paid for to stick in the car window, and the pictures taken. He could have snapped one of his morning doughnuts, or his helmet (oooer! ).
