    • 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.

I have a wedding video as an AVI file that I want to edit and then produce as a DVD for circulation to some of the guests. I can use either Premier Elements or Windows Movie Maker/DVD Maker for this exercise.

Some of the guests live in the USA so am I correct in assuming that I have to prepare the video in NTSC rather than PAL format for them?

It depends what they're playing it on, or, more accurately what the image is being presented on, but generally yes; the US uses NTSC and the UK uses PAL.

 

If it's relatively short, why not do up a simple DVD menu that offers the option of running the same footage in either format? Then you only have to produce one DVD to send to everyone, as well as covering all your bases for people being able to display it correctly?

There are a number of free programs for converting videos to different formats, if they are just going to watch it on their computers then no need to change it.

 

If its for DVD then yes, convert to NTSC for America, you can also sometimes do this when you get to the Burning stage. So you can select to burn it in ntsc. dont quote me on that

OK scrap the toughts of 'formats', they are actually something that ONLY really applied to the old CRT colour televisions (well their tuners!) lol...

 

99.9999999% of modern TV;s (the flatscreen ones) will transmute any signal i.e. Pal B/G, SeCAM, NTSC etc.. into something you can watch (this is in 2012). If the target 'audience' is in the dark ages with CRT TV's (the beeper ones with vacuum filled glass *barium guns) then there is NO issue.....

 

When films were shot back then, despite being shot in PAL or NTSC, they were both UNDER 50 frames/sec.

It might sound technical, ibut in that day and age, unless you were equipped with MEAN GEAR you couldn't hget more than 25/s anyway. Hence the old black lines when you filmed a TV..
