It's the cast iron jacket according to my old man?

Heat exchanger then.....

That'll be that then  ;D. See he was looking at some Boiler stop leak malarkey, whether that's going to do anything though I don't know? I'll give him a call so I'm not as vague  :y.

Yep, they're nice  :y. I know of one which is going, however it's a bit chavved' up in my opinion.

Evening people,

Parents' boiler is leaking a fair bit, now before I set about trying to find out how to fix it, is there any government schemes or company schemes, that'll help them out? They're not on pension credit because they're 5 over the boundary. Can't see the poor old pair sit there worrying about putting the heating on because they just haven't got the money to afford a new one. Failing that, boiler parts for a 20 odd year old boiler, what's the chances?? Personally I know naff all about any schemes, or boilers themselves, hence the questions  :-[.


General Car Chat / Re: This car tax malarkey?

Thanks people, do get to keep it. I'm not using one of the cars for trade purposes so that keeps the tax and is going in my name. As for the trade slip, as from now you have to fill out a trade slip, it's apparently down to the registered keeper to inform DVLA that it's gone to a trader, the registered keeper then gets a refund for the amount of full months tax remaining. One big revenue earner if you ask me.

So, what with all I've been reading nothing has made complete sense, so the situation is as follows. A couple of cars I've purchased, were purchased on 28th & 30th September respectively. Now do I get to keep the tax on the car or does that get lost? Everything I've been reading has been pretty unclear. One thing I read said you'll get to keep the tax as the rules came in on October 1st, however something else I read said, as soon as DVLA receive the log book the tax will be gone, as they've recieved the log book after October 1st. I, more than likely may be being rather thick, however this is all far too much for my old brain to compute  :-[.

Got to be honest, had Sport Contact 5's on an A3, reasonable dry grip, rubbish in the wet, they're absolute rubbish compared to Sport Contact 3's.

Identify the third party vehicle and claim directly from their insurers :y

Failing that buy the bits and fix independently...

Can't find the other car, other than it's a Black Ford Fiesta, no index details though. Poor sod clouted the curb at a speed, as he put it, hit the other car or try and avoid, avoid he did and hit a curb at about 25 MPH. Front wheel totally bent, rear wheel slated slightly. I've said to him get it out and I'll get him the parts at a cheaper rate to repair at my local mechanics.

Morning chaps, sons friend got cut up last night, forcing him into a curb causing quite a bit of suspension damage to his car (poor fella I might add!). Anyway unfortunately his excess is 1100, he's got excess protection where they repay the money, however stumping up 1100 in a lump sum is enough for anyone. Can you pay excesses in parts or does it have to be in full completely? I was always under the impression it was full or you don't get the car until it's paid?

Good cars, pretty much bullet proof engines, drive quite well, nice cars, go really well. As said though a lot of Volvo's have a very poor turning circle  :o.

Could have a P/X coming in, 52 plate Black Omega 3.2 Elite, usual spec, Black on Black leather, 115k, looks clean enough from photos, apparently no rust, will have a years ticket.

Utter load of pathetic rubbish if you ask me. Yet another example of people with a non-British background causing problems over tedious things.

I do think they're a good looking car, they don't actually drive badly either. Needs a more powerf engine ideally though, and the folding rear seats are a joke really.

My Omega would be one, 5 years with just service items, few minor things but nothing major. Then again, a MK4 Astra Van which I had for a while never put a single foot wrong.

Trigger from Only Fools & Horses has sadly passed away, just seen on the news. What a sad day!
