Re: The Crash Detectives

First episode was good - interesting and quite shocking in what they discovered. One of the team: Chris Goddard did a talk to my IAM group last year - he didn't mention he was going to be a media-star.

Re: Insurance again.

Ouch...yes I think insurance companies like to have it both ways in their favour...build up no claims on one policy and this can't be used for a 2nd policy...have any claims on any policies and you get penalised on all your policies.

Re: Bought a new Range Rover Sport HSE Dynamic

...The problem is that the car manufacturers package their car options into "lifestyle" packages - if you want heated seats you have to buy the full package of winter driving accessories costing £6,500, 90% of which you don't want [OK, I exaggerate a bit but you get the idea!]. Yes I don'...

Re: Bought a new Range Rover Sport HSE Dynamic

Rather than speaking with the local sales team, have you tried talking to JLR customer service/support? I'd like to think having spent a significant amount of money on a premium car and not being totally satisfied, they would come to an arrangement...but perhaps that's me being naïve.

Re: EV sales down

The SMMT are not keen on EV’s for fairly obvious reasons... Perhaps I'm thick... I doubt that :) EV’s are generally not seen as being good news to the traditional ICE manufacturers who are heavily invested in their current business models. EV’s with lower running costs and far fewer moving parts th...

Re: First accident...

Could it be the passenger and driver are in it together...you know...split the compensation? As has been said, stick to your story...it would have been helpful to take photos of the scene and also get any witnesses...always a high priority when you are involved in any sort of RTC these days. Keep us...
