In Topic: Picking New Car Up / Tax Due On The Old One

Yesterday, 08:11 PM

I had to tax my old car for 2 and a half months before collecting the new one, but I stuck a year on it just because the monthly cost is lower that way.  As said above you get unused months back in full, so even for 1 month it would work out cheaper paying 12 then getting 11 back rather than paying 1 at a higher price.  Worth considering!

I think it's just there to stop the bit which slides along the belt (it must have a name!) from falling all the way down to the floor when the belt isn't in use and it's hanging vertically next to the seat.

Add me to the list of people who did the Real Robots one!  Like Sean said they kept extending it so I only went as far as it was originally meant to go (40 issues at something like £4 each I think).  Still got it in a cupboard, and the soldering iron which came with it has proven useful many times for other things!  Don't really see why it came with a soldering iron, wire clippers etc when none of these were ever needed to build it though...

I kept my first Fiesta just under 5 years, my second Fiesta just over 3 years and my current Fiesta just over 1 year so far.  Wonder what my next car will be :rolleyes:.
