    • That's great work.  Well done on both the content and the level of snottiness.  That's exactly the sort of thing your wife should send, let them know she's sussed their sordid scheme and will be big trouble for them if they do court.  Fancy trying to charge her for overstaying for one minute!   Excellent "Dear Philip and Sian" research, I must confess I didn't know who ran PE, this will be something to suggest to Caggers in future PE cases!   If none of the other regulars object invest in a 2nd class stamp tomorrow and get a free Certificate of Posting from the post office. My Road My Town My County My Postcode Date Your Reference No. Dear Philip and Sian, Thanks for wasting your pennies and sending me a letter before claim. I understand you think I owe you something. I had a good laugh at the idea you actually really thought I'd take such tripe seriously and cough up! Now, you know that your claim has no basis and I know that you know that your claim has no basis Your can either drop this hopeless case or get a good spanking in court where I will go for an unreasonable costs order under CPR 27.14(2)(g) and I’ll be able spend some of your ill-gotten gains.

    • I do feel now that I would like to comment on some points raised on some of the posts on this feed:   Although I found the appearance and comments from Zac to be rather strange, I have not left a scathing review; I was merely seeking some advice as I have never been in this situation before and did not know what to do.   The information I have provided is factual, transparent, and comprehensive. The pdf I posted of full correspondence, screenshots with text on (and to clarify direct quotations from the video walk round), and photographs of the bonnet show this.   The emails and comments posted by the dealer do not constitute the full facts of the situation as he stated, and it makes me feel sick that I have repeatedly been called a bully and a blackmailer (via correspondence and forum comments) throughout this. Additionally, the 4th email posted by the dealer which he named as the response to the email above it was not the response I received to it.   I have made it clear from the start that I wish to keep the car and only wanted it in the condition as advertised. Upon receipt of my first email concerning my complaint (not the best email, I know), it was very clear that the dealer wanted the car back. His response to this was a WhatsApp message which ended in “To be frank I don’t want to sell some one a car that insults and then blackmails me”. This was also the only option provided which would not cost me considerable time or expense. Although it would still have left me without a car (and having to resume my search), as my old Golf was due to be collected by a private buyer. Also, this was the only option offered without sarcastic and/or patronising comments attached. This is of course only my personal opinion and I am aware that I may not be fully objective on this point, but I felt bullied into doing what the dealer wanted.   Whilst I understand my initial email was quite conflict orientated, and that I have not dealt with this situation well, I don’t believe it excuses the responses I received. I am at a loss to see how this is above and beyond in terms of customer service.   As the dealer pointed out, I did state that the car was in fantastic condition for its year (the interior is fantastic for the year), apart from the bonnet of course. The car has most likely done predominately motorway miles which would account for the bonnet. There are minor issues which also don’t match up with the video walk round. Namely, a tiny dent in the rear wheel arch, which is barely even noticeable, several paint chips around one of the doors, the odd stone chip elsewhere, the alloy wheels are in good condition, but not absolutely pristine as most were described as (I had assumed maybe these has been reconditioned), the rear loading strip is heavily marked all the way across, but the paintwork not affected. However, all of these I feel are minor in a 10 year old car. Upon reflection ‘great’ may have been a better representation than ‘fantastic' on my comment.   During my initial phone complaint, I was told that I was the first customer to complain in over 50 cars (can’t recall the exact number but remember it being in the 50’s) to which I said that I felt bad about, later it was 300…   I never asked for £150. As mentioned before, I accepted this offer over the phone after the dealer had told me that I would not be able to get a stone chip repair company to rectify, as “there are hundreds,” and that it would need respraying. He told me that it would cost him £150 (did not mention plus V.A.T) and that it might cost me £200 here.   I was confused by the pricing structure mentioned (from the chap he has previously told me he has used for his body work repairs for years) as this appeared to be an invoice, which I assumed was for another car’s repairs. The total cost was over £1,000. It stated £180 for a bonnet repair and paint (vandal damage, small repair or paint correction) and on the second page V.A.T was added. If this is correct this would surely equate to a total cost of £216 for the bonnet, but of course I could be wrong. Not inclusive of the cost of collecting and delivering the car back to me, as I have been informed that this should not be of inconvenience or cost to me.   I asked for a larger contribution as initially I was led to believe it would cost me £50 and a little inconvenience. Only after I stated the specific consumer rights (which I had Googled over the weekend) and sent the dealer photos of the bonnet did he offer me a further £112.50 for this. In hindsight I could have specified a figure, and that I still did not expect the blended wings to be paid for. Before this, the dealer stated that he did not wish to negotiate any further and to take the car back to him to paint or they will refund and collect. Upon seeking more specific advice on Monday I was informed of my full rights in this circumstance.   It is certainly not a case of changing my mind because I wanted a brand new bonnet etc. and I disagree that the dealer kept his "kool" and replied respectfully throughout, as I do not consider sarcastic and derogatory comments throughout as respectful.   The warranty is a 6 month bronze package from Warranty Wise in this case, which I believe is the only option for a car over 100,000 miles.   I’m unsure as to the significance of the dealer counting 14 stone chips, but maybe this was on one of the photos close to the edge of the bonnet. I have not zoomed in, merely taken a photos of different areas of the bonnet. You can gauge the size on the photos which are closer to the front headlight area. Also, again this issue is not about the size of the stone chips, which do vary in size throughout, it is about the sheer amount across the bonnet not being as described. I did state that these were difficult to see in sunlight or at a distance. However, upon reflection I should have stated more clearly i.e. direct sunshine. I believe 2 or 3 were pointed out on the front edge of the bonnet in the video walk round. In which the dealer stated "Body work is absolutely stunning for the year, with only very minor age related marks, which we’ll point out as we walk round… Bonnet; no scratches, no dents, no damage. If we look closely, we might find the odd little stone chip here and there that have been touched in, little one there, very difficult to see. Little one there, look. So, it's got the odd little stone chip on the front of the bonnet edge, apart from that it's very very clean."   There are not over 30 emails about this, there are 12 and 11 WhatsApp messages (inclusive of the 2 photos of the body shop invoice).   From what I understand about mediation, its purpose is to negotiate to resolve an issue as timely and smoothly as possible. The last emails from the dealer stated that they had no choice but to take legal advice and pass all their correspondence to Lawgistics. With a formal retraction of all previous offers except returning the car to them for a refund, which would be my responsibility. This also informed me of the AA ADR. Followed by one stating “My apologies I forgot to include the phone number for the legal team… Bonnie is the team leader should you wish to escalate to the highest level. Please note that on taking further advice we are under no obligation to offer a refund for the vehicle.”   The dealer also stated “our car” at the end of one of his posts which is odd. It is legally my car which was purchased online in good faith.   Bankfodder’s recent comment concerning the AA does indicate he is saying the AA does not know what they are talking about.   Lastly, I am also unsure as to why anyone would want to deliberately add stone chips to their newly purchased car, or indeed how. Is this even possible?

He is a man, so what do you all expect?
Oh, dear. Oh, my. WTF?

If you want a box of tissues for your sob stories, I am certain that your local shop will still be open at this time of night.

You don't know me, either but now ... wrong words to be saying to me or anyone else for that matter. I have pity for someone ... As to 'sob stories'. Well there is nothing about a little bit of 'hellzapopping' righteousness is there? Sob story? Come look in my eye, I will show you humanity but I will also show you what compassion means but also pain, despair, but I don't quite know what pieces of clay have to do with anything, either. I am not malleable, not at the will or whim of others, I am my own person, I make my own mind up. I left the church behind ages ago because of 'whiter than white' attitudes and not one iota of compassion for anyone.

 

However, my thoughts are always with the victims of wrongdoing (I won't even get into what wrongdoings that have been done in the name of the church over the centuries as this is not the time nor place but you did bring it up).

 

So, don't even begin to get righteous with me as you have not a clue what I have done in my life, nor how I am as a human being. Your words are totally, utterly wasted. Like I said I have pity for someone ... Can you guess who?

 

You have no idea.

Chill man, or Ian Beal will come to yours for tea.

 

On a more serious note...Mould I have just browsed your Threads and Posts, and I am impressed by you concerns, help, and equally the advise you have offered fellow cagers, newbies and even the more experienced member.

 

I think it would be very foolish, and a great loss to you and us if you were to de-register ( leave ) this forum, there is no humble pie here, so sit back, relax and stop biting before this thread gets ' pulled '.

 

IMHO, I think the Father is wrong to do what he has, however that is not for us to judge, personal stories will come flooding from members as a result of his wrong doings. however we all must get on with our own personal fights, and await the outcome before we all pass judgement.

I have unapproved another of The Mould's crayonings, even at the risk that he will follow through on his threat to leave and never return. This is because the post is clearly absurd, and seems to be designed only to provoke others. It does not contribute anything to the discussion.

Just maybe this guy loved his family so much he could not bear being without them and truly believed there is life after death and probably thought he did not want his family to though being harassed and chased

 

Indeed I think he probably thought taking them with him was the best option and a means for us all to escape.

It was there for all to see until I unapproved it. Mods see posts the same way as everyone else, and at the same time. The only difference is that we have an additional menu of thread and post tools.

 

Unapproved posts can still be viewed by mods, but not by others, so they don't disappear completely.

Any of the site team can moderate threads and posts.

 

Fair enough, how are you site team? did you get voted?

 

Maybe you can give me an insight as to the ' League ' on this forum.

What I mean, is why cant I unapprove?
In a way you can, if you see a post that you think needs moderating all you have to do is hit the red triangle report.gif which will alert members of the site team and they'll be able to review it.

 

If everyone had the ability to physically edit other people's posts can you imagine what chaos the site would be.... let alone if a troll turned up or even worse a DCA. ;)

I think what he means is what makes a moderator a better judge of what is uncalled for than say for example me or anybody else for that matter?

 

It has been clearly illustrated to me today that such things are not dealt with fairly or even very intelligently.
