    • 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.

Hello! I can finally see how to post.

Thanks for an awesome forum.Just to let you know that I tried to click on New Posts in the header at the top of the page and got a 500 error. I wanted to add the screenshot here but I can't seem to get what looks like the "insert an image" link (on the left of the "insert video" link above) to work. Doesn't do anything when I click it. Hope thats helpful.

Unable to find posts started by me, the link drags up some very old posts but none of my recent/current ones.

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

I posted this on the wrong upgrade thread originally - 2nd time today!

I must be having a bad hair day.

 

On the 'New Posts' list posts made today are showing 0 views but 1, 2 or even 4 or more replies.

 

For posts prior to today the number of views is always more than the number of replies (which is what I'd expect - presumably you can't reply without it also being recorded as a view).

 

So posts since the forum upgrade are displaying the number of replies but not the number of views.

Mobile version is same as desktop on Samsung galaxy s8.

Difficult to read and navigate on a small screen.

 

Yes, I had the same problem.

 

I found that if I scroll down to the bottom of the page and zoomed then I could get to the style setting which was set at "new CAG"

 

I change this to mobile version lightweight and I got the old mobile view back and it seems to me that it is retaining the settings.

Thanks all these comments. They are all being flagged up to our Webmaster and they are gradually being dealt with.

 

Please keep them coming.

 

Sorry about the inconvenience.

 

Our Webmaster is actually making quite a lot of headway.

 

So far

  • the search function has been fixed
  • editing, fixed
  • new posts , fixed
  • replies have been fixed
  • quote function has been fixed
  • find latest posts - fixed
  • a number of other bits and pieces have been fixed – there is quite a list of them.

 

Also, there was an additional upgrade to PHP7 and this is resulted in a very much faster forum. This upgrade went surprisingly smoothly.

 

Please keep comments coming. We will try to fix everything over the next few days
