    • Calm Down please.... there is only one way to deal with this and that is - PROPERLY. Being surrounded by 'lawyers' who deal with 'disputes', just like going to the likes of CAB, in this instance has, most probably, to date,  sadly not helping you here. Such people always project an Aura of confidence, when the truth is they don't actually have the vast successful experience of the members here in dealing with the likes BMW. there are over 350 threads here . as far i gather this is the situation, In April, a car was purchased by your son from BMW. Finance taken out to purchase it has since been paid in full, as well as full payment for an annual Insurance policy. within 6 weeks, it was discovered and confirmed in writing, via a report from a local garage, that the car indeed had numerous performance modifications undertaken. Namely being remapped and with modifications to the exhaust system. having contacted his ins co, they require a further £5k to uprate his policy, without it renders the existing insurance policy invalid, thus the car is not being driven.  again within this 6 weeks, you wrote to BMW rejecting the car (we need to see this letter please. scan it up to PDF, please read our UPLOAD guide). at first BMW were onboard, even sending their own inspector, confirming the mods etc. but in the last 9 days since said inspection, comms have now gone dead. .................. you have 2 options - 1 - allow BMW to sort the car FOC and without hassle to him, but probably within their own snails pace timeframe. 2- EVENTUALLY bring legal action - this would most probably be under contract law, not a claim under the consumer rights act . (as financially you would lose out big time) to do 2. which is not easy and rather complex to calculate the financial sum involved...... we need all the info @BankFodder has requested. of many, but one good reason for this is say for this new mot, show the old one was suspect, good bargaining chip against 2500mls usage deductions... your call but you need to do this properly or not at all...............    
    • Hi, I've been reading through many of the stories in the sub-forum and I understand the process to be to send a Letter of Claim to the EVRi - in the post and to their customer support email and to sign up for MCOL.  I have looked at the various Letters of Claim and the MCOL claim forms - particulars of claim and I have gone through all of the screens on MCOL website to put in the final details so it is ready to go after the 14 days from when I send the Letter of Claim (of course assuming that EVRi dismisses my Letter of Claim to pay me in full!).  I also see the advise is to decline any mediation particularly because I have specified the parcel contents and value to EVRi when shipping it. I have put both the Letter of Claim and the forms from the MCOL particulars of claim into a single PDF for review.  The stories in the sub-forum often indicate people shipping with EVRi but some purchase through or have involved such companies as Parcel2Go and so I wasn't sure about the statement I made in the Letter of Claim if it was totally accurate to say "I am applying my third party rights under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999"? I just wanted to confirm the correct wording.  In my case the parcel shipment was paid for on the EVRi website and sent at the Tesco EVRi Parcelshop.  On the MCOL claim form I have referenced Section 57 of the Consumer Rights Act 2015 in response to EVRi customer service hiding behind their lack of ability to insure delivery of laptops and their bogus non-compensated and prohibited items as a means to avoid any responsibility for them losing such items. Thank you for taking a look to see if there are any inaccuracies or amendments to the Letter of Claim - when it is looking good I will send via email and post it to EVRi.  Having drafted the particulars of the claim on MCOL, I shall be ready to submit the claim on the MCOL site when the 14 day period has elapsed and proceed from there.   Thanks for everyone's help!

    • Wow quite surprised by your response in all honesty as I can’t see where you have requested details of the car. The car is insured and that was budgeted for and paid in full, the increase of £5k is because of the modifications, which no we didn’t budget for as we didn’t plan to buy a modified car, so no that doesn’t form any part of wanting to return the car, perhaps you don’t understand the impact modifications have on insurance premiums? Thanks for your help so far but feel going the legal route probably suits us better.

    • 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.

I have recently moved and seemed to have forgot to change the address with the DVLA. I now have my license in my new address and have got this in the post today.

I've been a member here for years and had a few run ins with these types of firm, the difference is, they were always for tickets in my own space. Also, I had the original ticket sent and followed along the route of cease and desist letters.

This is in a private car park and honestly, I can't remember much about it. I can't remember if the machine was broken, I overstayed or I just didn't get one.

Any advice would be greatly received.

 

thanks

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

Plus read dx's signature.  The idiots who have written to you have no power to increase the invoice by £70 or to do anything else ever.  They're just trying it on.

 

Also make sure your address is changed with the DVLA not just for the licence but for the vehicle too - otherwise you could potentially get a grand's fine.

Thanks for the info. I have drafted a letter requesting more info and will send recorded delivery. Also, seem to have picked up another and have been sent another request for £145 for a separate 'offence' from Horizon.

I have copied and pasted the other letter to them too.

Should I be sending anything to DR+? or just wait for the parking firms to ignore me first?

 

Thanks for the help all and apologies for the wrong format in the original upload.

As post 4, ignore Debt Recovery Plus.

 

You've told the PPC your correct address so that is sorted.

 

Do I take it they refused to send you a copy of the original PCN?

Didn't receive anything else except the second, increased fine when I requested the original PCN.

Although, this did give me the ticket details. I'd parked there the week before and paid. This was a follow up appointment with an optician and the machine had a black sack over it. The fact, I didn't get a parking ticket to stay there, reminded me of this.

Thanks for all the help, I'll just keep ignoring them then.

All they're doing at the moment is getting paper tigers to send silly letters, nowt to worry about.  However, as they've been so arrogant as to refuse to send you a copy of the PCN, you might want to SAR them.  It's free and they'd be forced to do some work.

 

Did you get a photo of the knackered machine with the black sack over it?

Not fine, ticket for parking in the carpark. £2 or whatever its was. Never paid a PCN yet, thanks to this site.

 

Didn't take a photo of it. Silly of me in hindsight. They're such blood suckers I shouldve.

I doubt there is any connection between parking last weekend and the letter.

If this debt exists the dispute is between you and Euro Car parks.  No-one else.  ZZPS are an uninterested third party with no power to do anything so laugh at them and ignore them.

From the place, company and date it looks like this ticket, right?  https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/431369-ecp-anpr-pcn-the-willows-centre-main-dr-dca-letter-to-new-address/#comment-5097894

Oh no!

If you don't pay - they will tell someone else to write you a new letter.

How can you sleep tonight with this grand, apocalyptic threat hanging over you?

Your balance will increase in paragraph two but in paragraph three only may increase.

"The balance owed will increase as a result of us instruction the solicitors".  Aye, right.  I'm an English teacher so I think I'll write to them to offer to correct their letter templates for £100.  I wouldn't even have to do the work.  I could ask a child in the first year of primary school to do it.
