  1. Arrived here safely thanks Bob great packaging as usual 👍🏻
  2. PP’d this morning 👍🏻
  3. I’ll relieve you of those please. im not at home at thE mo but I’ve got all your payment info on my iPad so I’ll sort it tomorrow morning. Graham
  4. Many years since I had my targa but that lump on the right hand side certainly isn’t right, in fact the whole top looks pretty ropey or using the technical term shagged .
  5. Just to clarify, Hiscox,RH,A-Plan and all the others who front the various schemes are all Brokers, although some call themselves Underwriting Agents.They do not carry any risk themselves but basically operate under a binding authority. the Underwriter is the guy who writes the cheques and carries the losses, or indeed profits. The broker gets a commission on the business placed with the underwriter/carrier. now the Binding authorities are reviewed periodically, usually annually, and terms and rates are renegotiated, and these sometimes do not work out well, hence why schemes will move sometimes. It’s Very common for people when asked who they are insured with to name the Broker, and many package their documents to give that impression, but it will be in the wording Underwritten by XYZ, who will be either an Insurance Company of a Lloyd’s syndicate..
  6. Or an IB badge if the Sheriff approves of course ?
  7. Or if you’re in Yorkshire, dealers running away money.😉
  8. The car market is in an odd state at the moment, and will be for the next 3 months all things being equal.Basically the new car market, which is predominantly based on lease and PLP economy died for 3 months so there is a shortage of 3 and 6 year old cars coming into the used car market.I e been trying to buy a BMW 530 Msport Touring for my son to use as a tow car, and speaking to the dealers, supply of the one or 2 owner 30-75k milers is very thin and the good ones go for top money.They reckon that this is what underpins the entire used car market down the chain. It is slowly improving but now is not the time to be able to get the best deals.
  9. Very popular with the trackday crowd I know, in particular those who drive their car to the track and home again.
  10. Excellent progress and extra points for efficient use of garage space .
  11. glad you’re ok, last time I used a ladder..fractured wrist🥴
  12. It’s been a journey for sure but hopefully worth it...just have to find something else to spend your money on now 😉
