Re: Car for my Daughter to learn in?

How's the Daughter's Insurance looking Welters? Rees Jr's renewal at end of year 2 has come in at 447 with Admiral, which now only equals what we paid for the car. Done all the comparison sites and the cheapest they're finding is 461 so we'll let it renew. I don't think that's too bad actually but I...

Re: Insurance "Black Box" draining battery.

Delighted to report that the job seems to be a good un. Car was untouched for at least 3 weeks including some very cold nights over Christmas, that would have rendered the battery completely flat a couple of months ago. But ma boy just had cause to leave the homestead and she fired up first time, di...

Right that's me all caught up again. Happy New Year to you all 8) Good path shaky Steve. Glad to hear you're avoiding quake damage. :shock: I'm hibernating at the moment, working from home is wearing quite thin but I've become a bit of a hermit, barely setting foot outside.

Re: Insurance "Black Box" draining battery.

Rumor has it that, once opened, an insurance Black Box immediately steals all your personal data, empties your Bank Account, formats the ECU's of all local Volvo's and finally emails all recorded conversations of you dissing family members for the last 12 months to all your contacts. Other than tha...

Re: That COVID - How's it affected you?

A bit late to the party as always... good to hear everyone's coping with this weird year. Generally we've been OK, I've been working from home throughout which I used to quite enjoy, a day or 2 a week. Now it's a bit of a pain. I can count the number of times I've been out for work purposes since Ma...

Re: Insurance "Black Box" draining battery.

Yo Welters, how's tricks me old china? Glad you had a better experience of Smart Wheels than we did, just a speculation but perhaps they treat girls differently to boys? As I said there were a number of occasions where where my lad's car was unfairly penalised for "faults" that hadn't occurred, incl...

Re: Insurance "Black Box" draining battery.

Thanks both, good to hear from you! Congrats on the retirement Doggy 8) No worries with the insurance Wiggy, that policy's long expired, the current one is boxless. I believe they tend to bury them in the dash somewhere, either behind the glove box or on the drivers side, some reports say that they ...

Well hello there, long time no see, how they hanging dudes? :cheesy: The boy's Punto keeps running out of electricity :roll: His first year after passing his test he was insured with Smart Wheels by More Than, with a telematics black box.

Re: Wow!

I stick my head 'round the door occasionally just to make sure no one's getting too rowdy :lol: Was just thinking yesterday, the Volvo will be 8 in July, so that's 8 years since I stopped using my 406 and 7 years since I trailered her up north to John (and she's still going strong). Don't want to so...

Re: Car for my Daughter to learn in?

Excellent work Welters, I love a shiny new MOT 8) Punto is still going strong too, and the boy passed his driving test last week at the first time of asking so happy days! The learner insurance policy has been cancelled and a new proper policy taken out at £953. Its a bit of a sad state when you're ...

Re: Worsening driving standards

Currently teaching the older Rees junior to command a vehicle. He can make it go, make it stop, park it, reverse it, you know generally drive it reasonably well. But the thing I'm having most difficulty with is teaching him to grow eyes pointing in all directions at once and develop the sixth sense ...
