    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Bookie is quite right it is a timeshare, I win one every year:o

My cousin actually took them up on their UK option and gets a nice holiday each year, for less than she would pay normally, but it's not what I would call cheap.

Sorry ang, didn't make myself very clear. I doubt if the final cost of the holiday will be £183 when you actually book it, probably quite a bit more than that maybe 2 or 3 times more. They will harass you on your firstvisit and it will be a condition of bookig nthat you send some time with them and/or buy meals from designated restaurants. But the accommodation is 5* luxury, and my cousin takes her disabled father every year to one of their sites and the deal is worth it to her, because he has the space needed and knows exactly what he is going ot get.

Hi everyone,

Yes my husband had "won" 2 of these, Club Seasons and Club La Costa. After researching them on google it appeared they are timeshares you have to go to a "presentation" usually at a shopping mall or similar. There you have to sit through 2/4 hours of hard sell, where they try to convince you to buy a timeshare which costs thousands. Then if thats not enough once you go on your "holiday" there's another presentation there. No I couldn't be asked, some people actually think they are good value for money but I think if you shop around you can usually get a cheap deal online (we are going to Turkey for a week in May for £170.00 each this includes accommodation and flights)

I think you only actually get the accommodation with this "prize" you have to pay for flights and transfers etc.

I agree with Gizmo 111 and Bookworm steer clear.
