    • 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.

Has anyone seen the new advert from BG ?

BG have decided to offer cuts to customers when wholesale Gas prices fall.Strange that in the last 5 years of price increases,BG have always blamed

increases in wholesale prices-If they are anticipating these going down anytime soon,no one else seems to know about it.

They also cite costs in meeting energy targets and investment,which are surely not going to be changing ?

 

 

6% rise in 2007

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/comment/9606025/Gas-suppliers-must-be-allowed-to-make-a-fair-profit.html

 

10%rise in January 2008 added to a whopping 35% later in 2008

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/7533389.stm

 

In 2009 BG introduced price guarantee which capped prices for 12 months.However,many customers found themselves locked into the deal with

BG demanding a £70 exit fee.

6.9% rise in December 2010 followed 8 months later by a rise of 18% in 2011.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/money/2011/jul/08/british-gas-raises-gas-electricity-prices

 

The 6% increase announced for 2012 in the last few days will typically add £80 per year for dual fuel customers.

 

This Fix and Fall deal is a joke.

Here is what BG Gas boss told the BBC this week

 

The British Gas boss claimed that 85% of the price it charges customers is outside its control, including wholesale gas prices and the cost of government policies to try to reduce emissions and help the poorest households.

"Britain's North Sea gas supplies are running out and British Gas has to pay the going rate for gas in a competitive global marketplace," said Mr Bentley.

"Furthermore, the investment needed to maintain and upgrade the national grid to deliver energy to our customers' homes, and the costs of the government's policies for a clean, energy-efficient Britain, are all going up."

 

The cost of government policies and the national grid upgrade added £50 to the average household bill this year, and is expected to add another £60 next year, British Gas said.

It said that winter wholesale prices it pays were proving to be some 13% higher this year.

 

So how are they now able to offer this deal,when in the past they have always used it as an excuse for price increases in the first place ?
