Re: Smart Motorways (Again)

I was on the dreaded smart motorway section of the M1 through Northamptonshire. In the 3rd lane of the 4 was a lady (I’m ashamed to say) in a Fiat 500 doing 65mph. For mile after mile there she sat. There was absolutely nothing in the 2nd lane and lorries in the first lane. She was being both undert...

Non Car Related Viewing

For anyone interested, Sky and Now TV are showing a dramatised account of the Chernobyl accident, which we are finding both compelling and horrifying in equal measure. Truly terrifying is what could ultimately have happened without the sacrifice of the brave souls who went in to help, knowing full w...

Re: Car shampoo recommendations please

Found this online. Is this the right stuff? (Not sure who the company are selling it though - if you’re somewhere close you may know them)

Re: Write offs being sold repaired

The most worrying thing is most dealers use HPI to check a car and the fact that 80,000 write offs didn’t find their way onto the relevant database. As you can check your driving licence, road tax and insurance status, why on earth can’t you check a chassis number directly with the DVLA to check if ...
