Immobilisers

12 February 2013 - 10:39 PM

why cant i buy a new ( ish ) car without an immobiliser...or why dont they
make an easy fix ( bypass ) for legit owners ...i think car security is getting a
bit ' BIG brother and / or nannified ' and should be left to the punter if he wants it or not

malfunctioning security devices can be a pain in the ar5e and should be optional
the internet is full of people trying to get their ' safe ' cars mobile again ...
TIP : If yours packs up go and find a car thief he'll charge you a lot less than the rip
off main dealers

Car Finance Rip Off??

01 February 2013 - 08:11 PM

my local garage is offering £2000 ( scrappage ? ) towards a new or used car as long as i do it through
a finance company . They say i can then after 14 days pay of the balance if i want too

so theoretically if i buy a £5000 car i borrow £3000 of the finance company..then in
14 days pay off the £3000 in cash i have received £2000 for a vehicle worth
£250 ...so whats the catch

the garage says there isn't one...errrrrm!!

has anyone done this or are they taking the p***
