    • 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 put a claim into Lloyds for £1250 - filed the court paper work etc.


Today they sent me an offer of £750 in full and final settlement, which they claim will be credited to my account in the next few days.


Has anybody else had this? How do I proceed, obviously I want the full £1250 ;-)

Bunny and twotecs, Lloyds have been doing this a lot recently there are quite a few threads about it. They did the same to me so I sent a rejection letter (there is one in the templates library) off to them and carried on with my claim. Obviously, you have to decide whether you want to continue or not.


Personally, I think this is their new tactic to reduce their liability given the amount of claims they must be receiving. Some people will accept the offer and Lloyds save themselves some dosh.

Hi all


As you may know my boyf got this (not me though *bitter*) and he has sent off his rejection letter. we will be filing the small claim at the end ofthe month. When it comes to working out the interest we have filled in all the charges on the spreadsheet. We were chatting last night about now that LTSB have given this £750 how do we remove it.


We got total charges, total interest then grand total (charges + interest).


Would it be a case of minusing £750 from the grand total at the bottom, to give a new grand total or is it more complex than that? Im sure i read somewhere that someone said to delete £750 worth of the latest charges (ie row by row), but that will diminish the interest due which is not right surely, because all theyve done is refund the charges not the interest...


please help!!!

**** WON ****

Cap 1 - 07/11/07 - 23/03/07 £165

Ikea - 22/02/07 - 23/03/07 £200

LTSB - 02/10/07 - 24/05/07 £3310

LTSB joint account - 02/07/07 £751

If you want to keep it simple, take the £750 off by removing £750 worth of the most recent charges. Remember that your not entitled to the interest untill you file a court claim.


What you could do though if you wanted to still claim all the interest, is divide 750 by the number of charges that you have. This will give you a figure which you can then subtract from the amount of each charge.


That way the £750 is deducted as a proportion of each charge, rather than as whole charges.


You could then still claim all the 8% interest on the total before the £750 refund up untill the date you received it. Thereafter you would calculate your daily rate from the new total after the refund.


With me?

Gary -


I've just had a similar £750 offer on a total just over £1500. I want to send the rejection and part payment letter you've linked to above, but it references an LBA. The last letter I sent included the information that if I didn't have a response from them within 7 days, I'd be taking court proceedings. They *have* responded within that timeframe, but only with this offer.


Do I have to issue another LBA, or can I extend them a further 7 day timescale with this offer rejection letter and leave it at that?

No, don't extend your timescale. Send the rejection letter and proceed just as before.

Hi Sonic


I think I understand, you are about correct in your post 12.


Deduct from your schedule of charges £750 of the most recent charges, this has the least impact on interest then.


You should show your calcualtions on the spreadsheet so that Lloyds can see you are only claiming the balance.


It is unlikely that those charges will add up to £750 dead, therefore you will have to use one of the charges as a balancing figure.


If you are still struggling, then PM me with your email address and I will send you one 'I prepared earlier'.


You should really start you own Lloyds thread.
