    • 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 guys,


I've recently received a parking charge notice from the Swansea based Millennium Parking Services.

They have asked for £60 with the charge increasing to £100 after 14 days.

I am currently a student, so I don't have the money to pay for this and I feel conned.


I was using the street to park for my regional rugby training sessions in Llandarcy academy of sport.

They don't always have someone blocking the carpark entrance but when they do they don't let me in even if I tell them that my team trains here!!


There were no road markings or clear signage for me to know that it was a permit holders only area,

if there was, it was 6pm in november and I did not see them, meaning they were inadequately lit!


What action should I take from here?


Any advice is greatly appreciated!





I have answered the questions I could from the forum the parking ticket forum;


1 The date of infringement? 04/12/2017

2 Have you yet appealed to the parking company yet? NO

3 Have you received a Notice To Keeper? NO


4 Who is the parking company? Millennium Parking Services


5 Where exactly did you park? Residential housing area - Heritage Gate, Swansea/Neath, SA10 6DF

await the NTK which should arrive between 29 - 56 days time.

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

as you go there often

take some pictures of the road,

any signage etc

and as it is a private road(?)


take pictures of the turn off from the public highway.


There is case law on your side in this as well as loads of persuasive court cases that can be quoted


if you didnt see the signs you cant be expected to agree to their content.


It is for the parking co to prove every aspect of their claim,


not you disprove it but having evidence in your favour makes that so much easier so get snapping.

Well, I don't know how important this might be but the postcode on the NTK is nowhere near the sports centre unless you like a long walk before and after training.


Heritage Gate seems to be the name of the housing development not a street name.


Street view doesn't show any parking signs at all except some parking bays individually marked as 'visitor parking' but no restriction signs.

they are not full members of the BPA so the BPA logo is different to those who are.


As for address,

it doesnt have to be exact but good enough to identify the land

so that may well suffice unless there is somewhere with a similar name and postcode.


Obvious wrong locations would be something like anytown road instead of anytown lane when the named location is a public highway and not the land they supposedly manage.


However, a lack of signage to indicate you are entering private land from the public highway and logically sigange to offer a contract must be visible at the point you leave the highway.


Having a small sign stuck behind a wheelie bin has lost many a court case for these bandits including this firm
