    • 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.

Hi all,


Never posted in this section of the forum before but hoping you guys can give me some advise and help me make a desicsion on whether or not I should fight this case?


I recently received a PCN from the council stating that I had contravened section 47 and stopped on a restricted bus stop or stand. The alleged offence took place on the 16/06/11 and the PCN was issues on the 24/06/11. In the PCN they have attached 2 pics of a car taken 4 secs apart from each other (not sure if the timing will have any relevance to the case).


Just a little back ground; the bus stop in question is no longer active and has not been active for around 3-4 years. Only the school bus used the stop previously. As all the parents know the school bus is no longer active they use this stop as a drop off/pic up point for their kids and have been doing so for years.


Is there anything I can do in order for the council to cancel the PCN or should I just suck it up and pay the money?

The contravention for a bus stop is unlike most restrictions as it is a contravention of the actual signage rather than a traffic order. So if the bus stop is marked correctly it doesn't really matter if a bus uses it or not. Does it have a sign stating no stopping except buses?

I drove down to the bus stop yesterday and there are signs on the metal railings that say 'no stopping between 8am to 6pm' it was a bit dark so I didn't take any pics. I will go back there after work and take some pics.

Sorry double post.


One thing I did notice last night was the road markings for the bust stand do not appear to be complete. They've tried to erase the old marking and replace them with new ones but they old markings are still highly visible and the new markings appear to be broken in some areas. Will this be of any benefit to me?
