You could quote the highway code:
Your vehicle will be considered “parked” if you stop longer than necessary for loading/unloading or boarding/disembarking.”
If you didn’t stop longer than necessary then you were not “parked” but “stopped” and they can’t possibly charge you for parking.
Slap up meal at a McD’s, fwippers? My, my…
Must have changed since I was last in one.
Gary, indeed some do, in the form of a contribution towards the AP. Currently most BMW dealers are offering £500. Bear in mind though, the dealer does not get to keep the AP, or make any direct profit on the sale of the car, He just gets a fee for arranging the sale.
Gary, Motability will already have negotiated their own discounts with the manufacturers, for each quarter when calculating the APs. What dealers offer to retail customers is an entirely different matter and has no bearing on APs.
Bren Mac is asking how long it takes to get the car AFTER it’s built.
Bren Mac, ask your dealer, he should know from experience how long it’s likely to take. My guess would be from a European manufacturer not more than about 3 weeks. That was the case for our cars in the past.
Range extender version next year will make this car something special. At the moment a a realistic 100 miles just isn’t enough.
Ah. Now there’s an art that will be lost to the next generation, like heel and toeing. And then there was double declutching…May 6, 2021 at 3:26 pm in reply to: Now Ford have lost the right to quick clear windscreen will all cars get them. #147522
I recall drinking Special Brew as a very efficient way to get alcoholised on a short lunch break…
Yes, it’s a great area, solent60. Just don’t upset the police!
MrsW’s son had a bright yellow Audi. It was the only one of its type in Dorset. The police always knew it was him…
Lights go dim in the nearest town..
Well maybe not the *very* near future, joss. Article suggests the end of the decade. And it takes time for new tech to get cheap..
They only ask for your address at the chemist, Mike, to confirm they are giving the right prescription to the right person, nothing more.
No, don’t ask your GP, he’ll have to apply the rules once he knows.
We moved away from here to another town for 5 years. Never got round to registering with a new doctor’s practice and continued using the one here. Our dentist still thinks we are living where we did 10 years ago!
In the scheme of things it didn’t seem to matter. We just have to remember which address to confirm when picking up prescriptions.
Looks to me the initial road tax and later years including the 5 year annual supplement on higher price cars all falls under VED so none of it would be payable for disabled drivers (in receipt of PIP mobility payment).
The Kona Ultimate spec does rather show up the money grubbing of the premium brands. We’re not bothered about the extras you mention on the XC40, but having to pay £1550 to get adaptive cruise control is excessive. Kona’s too small for us, but a great offer.
Thanks Johno. Did you order? We are deliberating over XC40 or X1. Hard choice
That’s encouraging Johno. Do you want to name the dealer? Or what part of the country?
<p style=”text-align: left;”>That’s a lot of extras James. What are you after? I’m also looking at the XC40 hybrid, but the Inscription Pro.</p>
We see a few like that about. Local contest between wood pigeons and crows and magpies, unfortunately..
No, Glos Guy, my concern is that an XC40 might arrive too soon to get the September registration!
I seem to recall Motability said not, Kelvin. You should check with them .
Glos Guy, our lease is up 31st July but would be quite happy not to get our new car until the 71 reg in September. Volvo dealers , so far, are saying 10 to 12 weeks. Another reason for us to go BMW?
