Re: Home Security - burglar alarms

I would recommend the Blink camera system. Batteries last for 2 years. Completely wireless. Image quality is great in daylight and as acceptable as most at night. Hook up with a security light though and you will be fine. All recordings are uploaded to the cloud, so even if they steal/destroy your c...

Re: Car Insurance... points..

I didn’t think points made that much difference... unless it’s because it’s the 3rd offence in their eyes - I’m shocked at the prices. Just insured the M2 for the year £410 with the Mrs as a named driver. That was with my accident declared (single carriage due to cones on a dual carriage way and a ...

Just make sure it isn't an "all sections" excess (or if it is you understand the implications). Some "specialist" insurance companies do this with a conviction record they don't like.
Not sure what you mean? What’s an all sections excess?

Re: Car Insurance... points..

Yesterday I spent quite a bit of time on the phone to so called "specialist" insurers that couldnt get within £400 of my renewal. Tried Chris Knott but was on hold for over 30 mins so gave up. Rang Sky insurance, fantastic service. All done in less than 20 mins. Great price. Great service.

Re: Abarth 124 Spyder

Im a fan. However, I’d go nearly new rather than a pcp. They’re great value. Love the looks too.

Re: Accident advice

I would insist your insurance company send out someone to assess the work, then agree to send it to a different place to get rectified if it really is that bad. How may times should it need to go back? Never IMO, it should be done right first time. If the bodyshop do not have the right skills or res...

Re: My golf GTi...

Well I still have it.. As others have alluded to, its just very hard to find a replacement! I have now covered 26k miles in 10 months of ownership. Yes a diesel would cost me less (but not that much). I am averaging 44-49mpg now on the motorway, but early 30's in general driving. But it is such a go...

Re: Car Insurance... points..

Thanks, I will give them a call.

Interestingly, I went online and got a quote from Aviva for £1519 by inputting all the details in manually about my driving history. This dropped to £829 when I put in my driving licence number.....

Car Insurance... points..

Been a while since I posted, but, I have my insurance renewal coming up and was wandering about peoples experiences on who are good insurers for those with points on their licence. I have my Golf GTi and 9 years plus NCB. Sadly, I also have 9 points due to 3 SP30's. One in 2016 and two this year. Pr...

Re: real world economy 118d

thats made my mind up then...

my GTi returns 48mpg on a motorway run... 35 around town....

Not sure it makes any sense shifting to a diesel then. Bonkers.

Thanks chaps for your input

LCI 2 2017 118d m sport shadow edition

Doing a lot of mileage again so looking at a 118d m sport shadow line. Dealer didn’t know much about it but...

Do they come with Apple CarPlay?
Adaptive cruise control?

Dealer said no to both but he also didn’t know much else about the car so wanted to double check if these are standard?
