  1. Should`ve known it was never going to be a bomb. No ones`s going to blow up Wilmslow Rd. Even the terrorists want to be able to get their kebabs. Was a regular trip over for us from Stretford on nights to pick up the kebabs. Not found anywhere to get a decent one now since moving over to Lincolnshire.
  2. They can`t charge you an admin fee for something which they are cancelling. It`d be different if you cancel it before they do. Only costs you might not get back from Tui is anything which they said wouldn`t be refundable when booked - such as maybe their travel insurance as that is already in effect and so being used from the moment of booking, although, I have seen people saying that that was refunded as well.
  3. Was £200 paid separately? They tend to do the refunds in the manner and amounts that payments were made so not necessarily the full amount altogether in one lump sum.
  4. The general public consists of a lot of muppets. When lock down is relaxed and they are allowed back out into society and allowed to congregate at any places in any numbers social distancing will be forgotten about and ignored by many of them.
  5. We should have been cruising around Italy with Tui end of this month. Their policy is actually very clear, and reasonably fair in the circumstances I think, if people look it up rather than just listening to all the rumours and hearsay that is being circulated. They will send a refund credit 4 weeks after your cancelled travel date which can be used (+20%) on a future holiday up until next October, or, exchanged for cash if not used in next 12 months. If you don`t want to keep the credit for future use you can then ask them for the cash back straight away but this can take anot
  6. Had mine from new just over 7 years now and just coming up to 21K miles.
  7. My Aprilia - no doubt will be just gathering dust in the garage now most/all of this summer.
  8. The wife`s been doing mine with the clippers for the past 10-15 years (since I became too tight to pay the barber £4)
  9. Totally agree. I spend very little each month on fuel, even though it doesn`t go very far at all on a tenner, because I hardly use it. Insurance for some reason is dirt cheap, less than £200, must be age and location, but it`s really depressing when I think it`s costing me virtually £50 ever month now even if it never moves off the drive and I could probably change it for something with better performance and a lot less on VED. Doubt I ever will though!
  10. I`d check with the company first. PCP is different to other types of finance. You`re effectively renting the car until it`s all paid up so you`d be selling a car that you technically don`t own.
  11. I do like the wife`s 1.7 diesel Mokka. Plenty of punch and very cheap to run but if we ever change it I don`t think we would consider another diesel. Now that they`ve decided they`re bad I expect they will start penalizing us for having them. I heard on the radio the other day that one city (might have been Bristol but I can`t remember) is thinking of banning them from the city centre.
  12. Hi and welcome. I drove a Nismo earlier this year whilst my Gt Edition was being serviced. The ride was noticeably harder and crashed over every bump and pot hole in the road and I thought the seats, whilst gorgeous, were uncomfortable.
  13. When we moved 3 years ago we moved 120 miles away so it was fairly obvious my wife wouldn`t be keeping her job although her earnings were on the application, We just told them she would find a way to carry on with it until she found a new one. They weren't really concerned about it and never questioned or checked up on what had happened with her job. Seems to me, and although there may be some very rare examples to the contrary, in general as long as the re payments are being made lenders simply aren`t interested in what`s going on with you.
  14. I bought mine from Westway Manchester and always taken it back there even after we moved to Lincoln. never had any problems with them (but then there`s never been anything needed for them to do other than the routine service and MOT).
  15. My opinion of PCP has always been it`s only renting. It`s not your car. Unless, and until, you make the final lump sum payment. Anyone taking it on should have at least some idea that you can`t just treat the car as your own and do whatever you want with it until the agreement is all payed up and finished. To do what he`s done and spent on it without any consideration of the finance agreement is just plain dumb and reckless.
