We regularly get a different one in the 'There's a problem with your BT internet line' phone call.
We get this one quite a lot in East Yorkshire, standard reply 'Yes we have no BT Internet line, thicko, we are KCOM land' :lol:
Trying the scam in an area not covered by BT, you have to laugh!

Re: Air Con Servicing

Allowing for the acceptable loss of 3% refrigerant per year, the oldest XE at about 4 years should still have around 88% of the gas still in the system. It will be interesting to see how low that can go before performance is affected and it needs a regas. No 64,000 miles in 3.5 years and mine needs...

No surprise as they have been saying for some time they will eventually have a full range of EV's and hybrids. Not sure about starting with the XJ though. Who buys those??...
