General Discussion Area / Boilers?
« on: 09 October 2014, 17:38:07 »
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 / This car tax malarkey?
« on: 03 October 2014, 09:41:41 »
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  :-[.

General Discussion Area / Insurance excesses?
« on: 26 April 2014, 07:40:48 »
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?

General Car Chat / What's it worth?

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.

General Discussion Area / Thoughts on this?
« on: 28 March 2014, 15:17:42 »

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

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

General Car Chat / Peugeot 106 brake light issue?
« on: 15 January 2014, 13:13:40 »
Got a little 52 plate 106 at the minute, whenever you turn on the headlights, the brake lights stay on constantly? Any ideas, was thinking brake light switch until we worked out it's only when the headlights are on?

Thanks in advance :y.

General Discussion Area / Moving to Australia?
« on: 14 January 2014, 13:24:26 »
As heartbroken as it does make me, my youngest boy has royally got moving to Australia well and truly set in his head, although looking at the requirements to get a Visa he doesn't have much chance anyway. Has anyone had any experience of anyone going out there, and what actually is required to the point that I can understand?  ;D. Reading on Google is just confusing us all here. As much as I'd hate him to go, I don't want to be the reason he doesn't.

General Discussion Area / Merry Christmas all

Happy Christmas to all. :).

General Car Chat / Volvo issue?
« on: 13 December 2013, 17:35:34 »
Just got a 2003 Volvo S60 R, when turning right engine cuts power and the TC light flashes on the dash, straighten up and it pulls like a train again? Anyone got any ideas?

General Discussion Area / Anyone having O2 issues?
« on: 03 October 2013, 17:24:16 »
All my company phones are down, as are my daughter-in laws phone. Anyone else having issues?

General Car Chat / Vectra C GSI issue?
« on: 19 August 2013, 08:18:04 »
Got a 2002 Vectra C 3.2, when you floor it, and then let off ( or dip the clutch) the revs seem to take an age to come down, any ideas what this could be? Quick car, I like it, always wanted one and picked this up dirt cheap, it's nice to be on a V6 again.

General Discussion Area / How much?!
« on: 31 July 2013, 10:10:05 »
Just tried adding my 19 year old onto my trade insurance policy, 4500 and he'd be restricted to drive a 1.6  :o :o. Talk about a joke. This insurance malarkey, it's got to be a very good game to get into.
