    • 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.

Short notice, but this Greater London CAGger should be able to make it, as long as I drug myself to the gills. :-D ;-) I have missed far too many of them meets lately, last one I went to Tilly's housewarming!

 

(House bursting at the seams so can't offer accomodation though :-()

Do you know of any decent watering holes in the vicinty of Trafalgar square that would be a good place to meet??

 

Harp, Covent Garden, London, WC2N 4HS - pub details # beerintheevening.com

 

One of the best pubs in London - bit small but the best things come in small packages!

 

There are several good pubs around Covent Garden.

There is a place called The Clarence I seem to remember near there, however there is always the nice pub at the back of Liberty's in Oxford/Regent street and also a couple of other watering holes if anyone wants to go south with me on the way home.

 

Breakfast on Saturday can either be at my place, Morrisons supermarket (5 minute walk), nearest Weatherspoons (also 5 minute walk) or any of the other eateries in the local high street - including Il Ponte's restaurant which does salmon & scrambled egg for £5.95...

That's on the 28th, Tills. On the 28th, I have a lickle bit of room as long as you don't mind sharing the couch with Martin. :-D (and you're very welcome if you want to come down, although Martin may object! :razz:)

 

BEFORE xmas, OTOH... Let's put it this way, at the moment, you have to go upstairs sideways, avoid the corner of the landing covered in stuff, navigate round the 5 full baskets of washing and push doors open with your shoulder to squeeze through. As for my living-room table, I conclude it's still there as the piles on top of it would collapase otherwise, but I couldn't tell you what colour it is now, it's been that long since it has seen the light of day it may well have started growing mushrooms.

 

And if you think I'm kidding... Oh I wish I were. *sigh*

Thank you...;)... do you happen to know if they sell Youngs winter warmer???

 

 

:-)

 

There's always the Guinness of Newky Brown Spam? :lol: :lol:

 

Looks like you've picked a good time and place that will suit a lot of peeps. :p

 

This is the first time since CAG started that I missed a London meet at xmas but out of the question this time.:sad:

 

Just think though Spam - a few short weeks ago you were a meet virgin nervously awaiting your first time. Now you've done it once your brazenly organising meets yourself, and can paaaarrrttttyyyy with the best of them.:razz:

 

Way to go girl!!!!:D
