    • 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.

My question is, do i proceed to the next stage 14days after sending my prem letter or wait after hearing from them by 1 Feb. The 14days ends on the 16 jan.

If you have a look at all the other posts with a similar Q, you'll see everyone suggests that as you gave them your timescale to work to (the same as they'd expect you to work to their timescale) that you move to the next stage on the 14th day.

Can someone please reply...........................(i feel leftout on this site!!!)


I called Barclays today because i had received two letter from different departments, so I called them to clear things up.


I was told that they had sent my a letter (which i have not yet received) offering me 900 instead of 1800+ i requested for.


My question is, do I still send them the LBA considering they responded to my prem letter within the 14 days (prem letter sent on 2nd Jan and offer made on 10th jan, the 14 days would have been up on the 17th jan).


Should i proceed by sending the Refusal of settlement letter or still send the LBA???

I think it's an either or really.


Your prelim letter was asking for a full settlement of the costs, you can send a letter thanking them for the offer and asking for the rest of the money to be paid or you'll continue action, or the LBA as they have not met the conditions you set out in the prelim letter...


...hope that helps?!?


I think this is covered in the FAQs and in the success threads. I use these as they have the full story and you can see what the next stage will be.


Hope that helps

I have had exactly the same situation from Barclays - my prelim letter was sent on 2 January and then the standard letter and then the offer off £1000 when I asked for £2700, was sent 9 january. Im a bit confused by this to and have read the faq's and step by step guides and it doesn't really clear this up?!?!?!
