Re: Aircon/Climate Control doing strange things

There’s two or three sensors on the system that monitor the pressure in the system. When the gas level drops the sensors detect this and the system shuts down. Sounds like you may have a leak somewhere and that’s unusual at three years old. More like a seal than a corroded pipe. Pleased your gettin...

Re: Travel Insurance advice

We usually insure through the Post Office. Not the cheapest but a very concisive cover depending what level you go for.

I would go to the Police.
Aren't the police busy with catching rapists, peadophiles, burglars, fraudsters, car thieves, embezzlers, drug dealers and MPs?

I'd rather they focus on the above than be distracted by something that's marginally racist.
I honesty can’t believe you posted that 😟

Re: Windscreen chip - repairable?

15mm and in the wiper sweep area.

Best thing to do is call your insurance and they will send a tech out to inspect it. If it’s repairable they will do it, usually FOC. If not it’s £75 hard earned towards a new screen.

Re: getting my head around PCP

David posted “I don’t think buying a van in cash and doing some accountants trickery is really the subject of this thread and isn’t going to help the OP” A van or car is still a vehicle. It’s not trickery. It’s through the books, 100% legitimate and legal. That’s why I said the Op’s accounted would ...

Re: Brand new M140i horrible noise when put into drive

I’m the only member as far as I know with, as David puts it, a “crappy” Skoda and I can guarantee I wasn’t on the stand so please end this drivel.

Re: getting my head around PCP

I don't think you can get tax breaks on PCP unless you are buying the car through the business. I'm sure your accountant will be able to advise you better than most of us regarding this . I buy my vans cash but my accountant offsets the VAT over time and not all in the same financial year. Don't ask...
