  1. We have one of these https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B005HHUMQS/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1475100034&sr=8-1&pi=SY200_QL40&keywords=dreamland+intelliheat&dpPl=1&dpID=51aaCbNLEUL&ref=plSrch Quick to warm up, cosy with the fleecy way on top, can't feel the heating elements, washable, easy to put on and to remove ie no ties fitted sheet type thing. Not the cheapest but worth it.
  2. Aye, morons everywhere!! Inverness, I have found, isn't too bad. However, we were there a few weeks ago and some idiot on the Inshes roundabout got a good horn blasting for being in the wrong lane!!! That idiot may, or may not, have been me!
  3. Coming up to a 4 entrance/exit roundabout and the car entering it by the opposite entrance NOT indicating, you start entering and then when they have just got onto the roundabout they start indicating right ie to go across your path forcing you to stop!!! Also, same roundabout, when did approaching said roundabout and indicating right and taking the second exit become a thing? Even worse is when they combine the two!!! Start indicating right while halfway across and then leave on their second exit!!! Roundabout road rage rant over!
  4. I learnt today that a concrete strainer post is stronger than the bottom step and fibreglass mudguard on my Renault truck!!!
  5. Back to flashing! About the only motorists I flash are other trucks as they 'generally' know the rules
  6. Ha ha! That's the one I used to translate it! :)
  7. Am I reading this right? They're going to INCREASE the rate for small, energy efficient cars and DECREASE the rates for bigger 'gas-guzzling' cars?!!! Won't that remove a major incentive for buying a small car and also remove the disincentive for buying a bigger car? Madness!!! You couldn't make it up!
  8. Don't your local council supply bags? We can get bags FOC from local vets, pet shops and council offices.
  9. Waiting for the beginning of next month to tax it?
  10. Yes, I know it's not legal, and it is dangerous/reckless BUT I did have a wee chuckle at this video I'm sure a lot of us have felt like doing the same! https://www.google.co.uk/amp/www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/cyclists-blast-idiot-driver-who-8784789.amp
  11. Cheers all. Looks like a trip to the local motor factors this week then. Quick query regarding the stereo. Don't think it does but does the stereo have a code? It's one a bit like this one.
  12. Cheers Tom..........again! Currently the Focus is in my name with Mrs Turvey as a named driver, I'll keep it like that, I assume I can just do the same with the new car as well?
  13. Cheers Tom, thinking about it, it could quite easily be the battery right enough! A/C on the whole time as well won't be doing it any favours. I'll maybe give it a charge and see if that makes a difference.
  14. Next Thursday we're picking up a new to us second car. Now, this is the first time we've been in the position to have 2 cars and we're not sure what the best thing to do regarding insurance. Do you insure the second car on it's own or do you go back to the original insurer and add another car to it? Or any other method of doing it?
  15. As per title. Daughter's 58 plate 1.4 diesel Fiesta has recently become a bit sluggish to start even with waiting for heating plug light to go out and repeating. I'm no diesel expert(petrol engines I kinda understand but diesel is black magic!) so I'm guessing heater plugs are on the way out? She doesn't do a lot of miles, mainly back and forth to work(2 miles) with the occasional 15 mile run out in the country. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
