    • 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,


Just received my first ever PCN while watching LUFC. I parked on an unmarked unsurfaced road which I understand is unadopted by the council. There are no signs or bays on this particular stretch of unadopted road etc. however, looking at satellite images, about meters before turning into either side of the of road were I got the PCN there are signs which state the following 'resident permit parking only past this point on match days and events. The PCN contravention is code 12 is it enforceable.


I have taken a screen shot of where I parked, approximately to the right of the arrows.


Any advice is greatly appreciated

thanks green and mean, but my point was that because it's unadopted by the council they have put no signs or marked bays but my PCN was given for contravening code 12. Are you suggesting the PCN is enforceable, even though there are no signs or marked bays on the road I parked, although apparently a residential area requiring a permit during match or venue periods.

It is not unknown for parking restrictions to be signed in the way you describe. You could ask the council for clarity on what the restrictions are at that precise spot, and the relevant section of the parking order (which is the legal basis of the restriction at that place), but at present there is no reason to think anything improper has happened.

If the road is unmade then painting bays would seem pretty pointless therefore the most appropriate signage would be signs similar to the one you describe which are legal.


Permit Parking Areas - diagrams 663.3 and 664.1

new entry and exit signs have been prescribed indicating what has been defined as 'permit parking areas', within which permit parking upright signs to diagrams 660 or 660.3 may be placed in sufficient numbers as appropriate. This control can be introduced where parking in an entire road, or area, is reserved for permit holders and where no other parking facilities are permitted. Local authorities may allow loading within the permit parking area, as a general provision within their TROs, but which is not signed.


Parking bay markings are not permitted within permit parking areas. Only where waiting or loading restrictions apply, may yellow line waiting restriction markings (diagrams 1017 and 1018.1) and loading restriction markings (diagrams 1019 and 1020.1) be placed at those
