  1. Good afternoon fellow forum users, apologies in advance as I've never posted before and want to give as much info as possible but there is a bit to tell and I don't want to bore you all to death so I'll try to be as brief and concise as possible. Yesterday I received 4 parking notices from a company claiming to be PCS and one penalty parking charge from the London Borough of Newham for a 52m - failing to comply with a prohibition on certain types of motor vehicle contravention. In total the bill is currently standing at almost £500 ( 4 counts of £60 from PCS and £130 from Newha
  2. Hi there, Recently i had an accident that wasn't my fault when i veered out the way of an oncoming car that came over onto my side of the road. The cars did not collide and i went into a raised curb, the other driver did not stop and drove away. Major damage to passenger side front wheel, and passenger side suspension with body damage. i have a £3000 excess, with XS direct. They claim the car is a right off and their engineer valued the car at £24,000 when brand new in March 18 it was £37,000 value. They are now claiming it is not economically viable to repair. Car was sent to BMW ap
  3. Hi all, first post here! thanks in advance for any advice. I'm going to be trading in my car for another used car. I have a private plate on my current car and want to transfer it to the one I'm buying. I see this can now be done online, but I'm confused about the 2nd part.. I'll take the number off my existing car using the online forms, and get a confirmation number that I can use to put it onto the other vehicle. But do I need to wait for the log book for the new vehicle to be posted off and come back in my name BEFORE i do the online process to put the number onto th
  4. I bought a car from stoneacre in 2014, i have 3 year warranty with vauxhall until september this year. My engine has failed on the motorway with no warning at all. We have had the car serviced and the book is stamped. However we lost our invoice, the garage cannot provide an invoice due to not having it on their computer system. genuine parts and oil was used. Now vauxhall are telling me that the engine wont be repaired under warranty due to not having an invoice however the book is stamped. can anybody advise me on what to do? thanks
  5. this morning I've received a Valentines from CP plus, a "charge notice", issued on 10/2/17. However, it seems they have misread the car's number plate. Someone has apparently stayed in a private car park on 3/2/17, and they "do not have evidence that a sufficient payment was made for this vehicle to cover the full duration of the visit". They show photos of the vehicle entering, and leaving. In one of the photo's the only barely discernible feature is its colour, as it was nightime. In the other, the car is clearly red, and one can guess at its make and size, and probab
  6. Today I have received a PCN from Coventry Council for driving in a bus lane. I do not live in Coventry and have not been there for years and years. The picture shows it was definitely my number plate so I assume it has been cloned?? I will report this to the police when I get home from work. I am obviously going to dispute this but surely the council and receive disputes all day long saying it wasn't me I have not been to Coventry for over 6 years, so surely they are not just going to say 'yep ok no problem we will scrap it'. Unfortunately it happened at 6.15pm so it was dark
  7. Hi all, Around 18 months ago I brought a used car from 'Bristol Street Motors' on finance. The car is a 62 plate Peugeot 208 currently at 43k miles and is currently financed for a total of 4 years. A few weeks ago I noticed a blowing noise coming from the car - so took it to a local garage to have it checked out they pointed out that the catalytic converter had split and after looking up the part it was around £800+ fitting. After doing a bit of research and found that most sites saying the earliest one of these should need replacing at is 10 years / 50,000 miles.
  8. HI...Brand new to this forum but hoping for guidance. In 2010 I started to get correspondence from VCS stating I had parked outside the bays at Valley C entertainment Leisure Fund. I had no clue what this was about and wrote to them to explain my number plates had been previously stolen and that I suspected this was who had broken their parking rules . I even gave them the crime reference number. I still got letters and calls from them and some legal team I think but eventually they stopped. I presumed the message had finally got through. Today I get a lett from BW
  9. Hi all, hope you can shed some light on this issue I am facing currently, 2 months ago I bought a second hand car from a local car dealer, I did a HPI check prior and it showed outstanding finance on the car I rang up both the car dealer and HPI to query it and I was told by both that it is a 'unit stocking' finance and it is commonly used by most car dealers to stock up cars on their forecourt and the finance would be paid off automatically within 2-3 days of purchase I went ahead and bought the car for above the average price due to it being in pristine condition
  10. Garage installed a new clutch plate BACKWARDS six months ago in my volvo which broke during a long drive away, que new repair needed plus lots of expenses. Shall I start with a notice before action, including copies of receipts etc? What is the garage liable for and what do I need to do? Thank you in advance.
  11. Hi Bought a used car form large dealer Oldham cars fine but had a private plate on car we p/exd, salesman said he'd sort the transfer no problem as part of deal (we have evidence of this) BUT they sold our old car with reg still on now we cant get it off as DVLA say only registered keeper can transfer it and they wont, dealer basically ignoring our calls etc. as I've asked them to cover the cost of the plate but wont. Any one any idea on what if anything I can do? Thanks for looking.
  12. hello I was given a parking ticket from a company called TESGB 2 weeks ago, the fine was issued to the wrong number plate (confused x by k). In the first place the fine was unfair as i parked my car at the bank's car park and before taking my child to the toilet (there were no toilet facilites onsite) nobody made me aware that i could not leave the premises but even then there has to be an exception to the rule as the bank does not provide facilites. My husband suggested i should write to them to clarify the issue and informed them that PCN was invalid, then i received an ema
  13. Hi, I wonder if anybody could offer me some advice. I bought a brand new Renault Clio in September 2011 and the car started experiencing starting problems within 2 weeks of receiving it. This was reported to the dealership / Renault and the car was taken into the garage for them to investigate but they could not find the problem. Almost two years later and I've lost count of how many times the car has been back to the garage a nd the problem is still not resolved due to the fault not showing up on the diagnostics machine. Does anybody know if I have any rights?
  14. Just been sold a car by the Sheffield car company which had no tax. I was an idiot and so I could take the car on the same day I said I would sort the tax. Turns out it has not been officially swapped from a previous private vin. The result is the mot doesn't match the car. The dvla won't tax it. I could apply for another log book but that is 6 weeks without a car and without the cash to do anything to get myself mobile again? What rights do I have? I just need transport, it's essential for work. I'm not after compensation just don't want to be stranded or have to pay for a hire
  15. I recently got a PCN however the attendant rushed to fill it in and added a 0 or O into my number plate when I don't have anything similar to that... Should I pay it or hope that they won't trace me???
