  1. Yes only supporters can see the link. the website needs updating somewhere for people to know this has happened rather than looking like a tool in the shop!!
  2. Unless you can only see that link as a supporter. I am happy to pay for supporter status again but wanted to ensure I wasn't going to have the same issue. Really ought to be a bit clearer, as when I looked at premium membership it still mentions the discount card and no hint they old cars are no longer valid.
  3. Errm am I missing something here? I can't see the link you are referring to even a search brings up a thousand results but not the one I want. Confused, although surprised this thread resurrect has gone unanswered by board staff given that the forum premium members pay to help the site as I did for several years.
  4. Been to swap my snow foam gun that was faulty. And the manager woman I spoke to tried scanning the card and their system indeed asks for a voucher code to apply the discount. She showed me on the screen that it asks for a voucher code. So confused at the moment until someone can confirm if this is now an issue and we need some other way to use the discount. I was a premium member for several years and never had any issues using my discount card in the past.
  5. Should add never had issues before even thigh I often had to tell staff how to use it and work out the discount for them. But as I haven't been on here for a long time didn't really question it.
  6. I assume the Halford's guy who said I needed to use an app to get a new discount code as the card no longer works was talking out of his orifice. Gave me 10% discount in the end and was supposed to email a receipt along with a 5 quid voucher which incidentally never came through. I can't see anything on here that states the discount card has been changed. Can someone confirm please he was talking ***** so I know for future ref.
  7. Hi could you please help, I have a 2007 Focus 2.0 tdci I ran the additive tank dry near the fuel tank I think. It is in the garage now and has been refilled but the message on the dash won’t clear. The garage said once emptied and the car has been run the tank becomes goosed, is this correct?can you clear the code?

  8. Whether in a rigid or a unit and trailer I always take the easiest option to get around an obstacle. If it was a tight squeeze to the left then going right is the only option. I was taught to straighten the curves out as much as possible, so in the night when it's quiet and safe to do so I use the whole of the lanes on roundabouts etc as long as it is safe to do so. Looking at the photo with a trailer then a wide berth to turn left would be a must anyway, and in rigid's with the turning circle of a supertanker would be taking it wide as well. Taking all the road you need is a must when driving large vehicles as it is all part of forward planning.
  9. Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/252917043994 Even cheaper although I may have paid less than 30 quid for mine, just seemed to ring a bell. Sent from my HTC One M9 using Tapatalk
  10. Buy a new hose off eBay, cheaper than the Ford part and will have working clips, they are easily damaged though. Think I paid around 30 quid for the replacement air intake hose with the breather hose attached. Sent from my HTC One M9 using Tapatalk
  11. Yeah, I get that, but when you estimate there were roughly 28.5 million licenced cars on the road in the UK in the third quarter of 2015, 28.5 million £2's is quite some money.
  12. No crazier than the pointless MOT to be fair. An MOT means diddly squat and has always been a revenue maker for the Government. It would be far better probably if the system was scrapped and a proper system was introduced to make sure cars are roadworthy. Whether a car is tested after 1 year from new or 10 years it still doesn't mean that vehicle is safe to be on the road after driving out the MOT test centre. The MOT test is a farce and always has been. Even more so with newer cars everything is covered by some piece of plastic so testers can't even check a lot of critical stuff these days of them can't see it. Get rid of the MOT and replace it with something more robust and fit for purpose. Simples. Sent from my HTC One M9 using Tapatalk
  13. No the wheel is on the right hand side in one of the pictures with the tyre off the rim, it was further up behind the car and the driver has moved it. The driver I guess late 20's. Sent from my HTC One M9 using Tapatalk
  14. Looks like he has gone into the verge either by or in the process of loosing a wheel. hit the hedge and bounced up and landed on the front corner. But the car is at an odd angle, so either something underneath it is sitting on or it's well and truly knackered. Have blurred out faces and signs and number plates for obvious reasons.
  15. I wish I was half as cool as him at 50. Guy has got better with time in my opinion, there are some legends who have got so much netter with time.
