#458487 Car Insurances? What Are You Paying?

Posted by CookieM on 25 February 2015 - 03:43 PM

My renewal will be due in about a month so started looking at quotes. Cheapest so far is Swiftcover, it was £310 with the default excess and no extras, up to £369 with total excess of £100. That includes a 10% discount for having a dashcam. I probably will be adding extras like personal injury and legal cover, but so far it's looking like a good reduction on last year :)
 
The thing I don't get is that price was from Swiftcover's site and was less than their price on Confused.com, even though I tried to enter all the details the same. Maybe it's just that Confused.com works differently. Have any of you found that you can get cheaper quotes from insurers' own websites, even if those insurers are on comparison sites?



Yeah it's always like this. I guess your just cutting out confused.com's or any other comparisons sites slice of the pie.

I always go to comparison, find cheapest then go direct. Then try non comparison sites

#438990 Ps4 Vs Xbox One

Posted by CookieM on 23 December 2014 - 07:54 AM

It really comes down to whether you prefer the xbox exclusives or the playstation exclusives. Xbox one/ps4 are both good consoles.

Also preference on the controller is a big decision swayer. I wanted halo and prefer xbox controller so went xbox one :)

Definately put your foot down. I actually test drove the salesman's own ST as there was no others available (his misses actually drove it over!). He went round the corner out of the garage and slammed his foot down. I took it as permission to do the same :P


#432677 Free Versions Of Autocad Or Similar Software?

Posted by CookieM on 29 November 2014 - 11:24 AM

It's nowhere near as sophisticated as autocad but I had a go with poly board to design myself a desk. Might want to check that out :)

#425735 It's St Time! (Nearly)

Posted by CookieM on 05 November 2014 - 08:49 PM

So a little update...

Got some 3m carbon fibre wrap off eBay and some mirror caps from fords. Thought I'd give it a go myself first and if i completely messed it up, take them somewhere to be done.

It's taken me an hour and a half but finally got one finished! It's a little rough around the edge that will be closest to the car but you won't see it so I'm pretty happy.

Not bad for a first attempt if I may say so myself!

White LED number plate lights

Carbon fibre inlays for the ST badges

Got mine off eBay. Were only a couple of quid. Just search for "w5w smd led".

The lights are really easy to get out. Just slide an allen key or small screw driver into the hole on the right of the light and push the clip gently towards the light and it should pop out enough for you to pull it down. Unscrew the bulb holder and pop the new one In.
