  1. Edit to last post in the interests of clarity - typo. First inspection was 2/3 days post purchase. Car bought on Tuesday. Vibrated/Shuddered twice on way home.

  4. Hi folks, I'm new here, so apologies if I've posted in the wrong place, although debt collections seems about right! We've had 2 letters from EOS solutions. One trying to trace us and today's demanding payment for a united utilities debt from our last property. We are 99% certain that all of our debts were cleared when we moved out - the property was a rental and we only lived there for a year.
