  1. Neil get on them websites, it has worked twice for me in fact 3 times as I said I want the road tax back as well, on the CLK he didn't pay it so I put that back on there and he went mad. Got that paid back in 24 hours, I have probably got the email trail somewhere. It tips the balance back in your favour. Personally I would back it and make them come and pick it up. Thats your call though, I got him to trailer the CLK from Kent to Birmingham at his cost. Make sure you send him the review do not take any phone calls do it all by email and at worse small claims is great. I have done that 5 times in business and have never lost. But keep it to email and log everything. Dan
  2. Neil, i backed one of the apprentices cars last year he was a knob buying it and they knew they could take advantage, it was fairly simple when they got shitty I got on the car dealer review sites and left an honest review of the situation on each one. i done exactly the same thing with a CLK 55 I bought a few years ago, both times got the money back in under 7 days. Even if you want to keep the car put a review on them, they really don't like it they will then sort the issues. But don't rant just put a fair appraisal of what has happened. I promise you it works danny
  3. Mate you missed a socket ! You will need that to make the ring, let me know if you get stuck ? And a light!
  4. Jo that looks lovely mate, does that mean you got a spare set of BBS? I might be interested if so as I would like a spare set to put modern tyres on and keep the Goodyears for show cheers Danny
  5. Sorry Dave. Bibs happy to mine on the stand give Sparky a chance to do some live mechanic stuff
  6. I will speak to Mr S he might bring on of the Red ones along if not i am sure he will be up for a beer and a curry
  7. To be fair Jacques, I was in Denmark a Month or so ago and it appeared to me that everything cost 250,000gbp ?
  8. Barry so what has it been capped at then? I missed that bit of news.
  9. Dan I didn't realise that. But what pisses me off is I understand APR like I am guessing most people on here but loads of people don't and unfortunately these are targeted at them people. I had this with an apprentice, who just happened to mention he was buying a Peugeot on finance from some 2nd hand dealer I said before you do anything show me the finance agreement. Now this lad is a hard worker, comes from nothing and has shared a bedroom with his brother in a council flat since he was born. Etc, etc. Well it was a disgrace, they knocked off £500 off the asking price then put it back on 6 times on the finance. He didn't have a clue thought he had negotiated a cracking deal. In the end after they kept calling him, I said, take me down there. I rarely lose it with people in cheap suits but that day I did. Do you remember how hard it used to be to a loan and a mortgage? I liked that. It's still happening now, I spend everything I can on a BA Amex card for the air miles pay it off every month. Well if you could see the credit limit now it's a joke I could literally go buy a Evora 410 tomorrow I couldn't afford to pay for it but I could buy it.
  10. There is also a very interesting article in the Sunday Times today about JC's vision of Britain now reflecting back to the 70's if you have the paper read it. It is in main paper and about why it won't work, I remember the 70s and having Sunday dinner without any meat and my parents struggling with their mortgage. Well worth a read
  11. Ian, after another pair of shoes turned up last week, I went and counted 57 pairs. I have 3 pairs of desert boots a couple of pairs of work shoes, 2 pairs of trainers and some steel toe caps for site. Told her if anymore turn up I am going to dig out my Black and white Jam shoes from the loft and wear them everywhere ?
  12. Tell you what Barry you are 100% right on this payday loan stuff, I saw something on the tv the other day and I might bE making this up but the APR was something like 1004%. Now how any Govenment can allow that to happen is beyond me. The people who take out these "loans" have absolutely no idea what they are doing so it needs to be stopped. I hate to think what happens if you miss a payment. In fact I don't think you should be able to get a loan under £1000. The max interest rate needs to be fixed. The fact these companies can afford to advertise on TV tells you something. If I was in power that would be the first thing I would do, then obviously free up the outside lane of the M25 to Lotus owners and people I like only ?
  13. Dave I have never seen one in that colour, it is gorgeous. Need bigger garage and a smaller mortgage, that and Luke's Panther Elite with mine sitting 3 abreast in a garage. Could the world get any better.
  14. i think that is cheap Jonny, surprised not snapped up yet i also want one of them type of number plates and the comps.
  15. Yep agreed Barry, I always suggest going completely over the top with fire alarms. They cost next to nothing really in domestic. The radio linked stuff is also really good these days for retrofit
  16. Lovely. I do love a red leather interior def had a retrim by the looks of it
  17. I love that colour what is it? I thought it was silver when it was in the garage
  18. I got to be honest, not into getting into the argument but I am pleased we have the royal family and funnily enough I saw Queeny Cup Cake the other day in her Roller with full Police escort by the Blackwall Tunnel, stuck in traffic, she was all dressed in blue, I was with one of the apprentices so gave her a wave in the traffic and yes she did wave back ( you know the one) it was genuinely brilliant. Was on the phone to the Missus ( hands free ?) within a minute. I also have a bundle of time for William and Harry they have had a tough time but are true gents. I like Harry having a fag, I know I did, but they make me feel full of that lovely Great Britain feeling. Charles not so sure!
  19. On the SUV do you think this would be fibreglass? That, I think, would put people off.
