Debit card? Applepay/Googlepay? But credit card is just the same. If there was no point in having one, then almost every member of the adult population wouldn't, would they?  ::)

But that's taking money out of my current account where it could be earning a little interest (it doesn't anymore, but it did  ::)) so I used my credit card all month. At the end of the month, my current account paid my credit card acc  :y

The only real reason to have a credit card is to be able to say that you have one.

So how do you pay for your shopping or a tank of diesel/petrol? I use my credit card which means I need to carry the minimum of cash ..... and at the moment especially, most places want payment by a card of some sort .... they don't want cash.

 will even close our bank account with Barclays now as well.

Good luck closing your Barclay's credit card .... it took me a few attempts to close mine, and even then I had to put my foot down to do so.
.   

All done & dusted found it very simple to do .

I had a Barclay's credit card years ago & stopped using it. When I phoned to cancel it I was passed from pillar to post and in the end gave up trying. Ages later, I tried again and eventually managed to convince them that I didn't want it any more ... I'd not used it in years, & begrudgingly they cancelled it.

If you have one and rely on it then you shouldn't have one.

 .....

How do you define 'rely on' .... I have 2 credit cards, both paid off in full each month, but credit cards are useful to use & give a degree of protection when used

the only handbrake I've ever had stick in 40 yrs of driving, was the handbrake on my daily driver Smart. Even the handbrake on my caravan that had been left on for months released the other day when it was moved for new tyres (I appreciate a caravan's drum brakes are different from a car's)

3 points or the choice of speed awareness or a Specsavers voucher.  ::) ;D
Presumably it was a 30 limit, so if the speedo was 43, that likely to be 40-41 mph, which I think is beyond the threshold to be offered a patronisation course.
High 30's more like.
I was clocked at 37mph to be invited to a speed/driver awareness course

Bugger! .... I missed that. I was busy at work.  :(

I bought this Andy to do my Saab's as my Snap on jobbie didnt and it covers all modules on the Saab's, will be as good on Merc I would imagine and you can add other makes for a fee

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/313022016634?hash=item48e190ec7a:g:R8gAAOSwxrJeZPin

The price includes one manufacturer :y

Thanks .... I might look into one.  :y
I suppose I should go for a multi car reader .... for just in case. I already have a cheaper Autel, but it only does engine codes (though it can see the auto 'box on SWMBO's Citroen)

Do not allow insurance company to take car, tell them you will keep car for a reduced pay-out, or buy the salvage... It's an uphill battle but do-able, I repeat DO NOT let insurance company take or remove car no matter what they threatening to do, it's your car, not theirs no matter what they say.

 I've been down this road twice with Omega and kept salvage both times by standing up to them.

What he says .....

Omega General Help / Re: Crank seal.
« on: 26 April 2021, 19:59:38 »
Front cranks seals I've come across can normally be easily prised out because either the crank pully had a large boss at the back where the seal sits or the seal sits on a spacer ring that can be turned round if worn.
