  3. Untaxed car clamped

    I’m aware of a car that has been used daily despite no mot, tax or insurance since early 2017 Yesterday it was finally clamped by the dvla for the tax, but will this bring to light the mot and insurance issues? Will the owner need to prove all 3 are up to date to get the car unclamped? Will the dvla inform the police of the other issues?
  4. Untaxed car clamped

    They were reported 7 times since February to the police, as well as being given the address the car is overnight and through the day. Nothing was done. At least it’s off the road now.
  5. Untaxed car clamped

    I contacted the DVLA, apparently they don’t inform the police...they are only concerned with the tax issues not the MOT or insurance.

    Excellent. Won’t be affecting Plato’s touring car season...he’s hardly been on fire so far.
  10. Car shampoo for jet wash lances?

    BH wheel cleaner is the nuts, spray and leave for 3-4 mins and pressure wash any amount of baked on brake dust off. Amazing stuff
  11. expensive numberplates

    I've seen a few recently that are probably worth megabucks, but it always puzzles me when you see one which is out is sync with the car its on. Today I saw DEL11A on a lovely Bentley GTC which looked right at home, then D505 on a blue 1980s Renault 5! I have also recently noticed loads of 2 letter 2 number plates, AB12 for example. Has there been an auction of them recently?

  13. CHAVMOBILE Spotting...

    You’re playing fast and loose using the term “car” for that POS
  14. 2016 polo vivo rear speaker settings

    Check in the settings on the radio that the front to back fader is set in the middle, failing that take it in to a dealer as it'll be still under warranty being a 2016 car
  15. Post a pic of your car

    There's a few Evoras in JCT near me The lairy green looks fabulous as does the orange. In red it looks like a Ferrari kit car though, it doesn't suit it at all in my view
  16. Buckled Alloy Compensation?

    Was in McCrombie that took his bosses 250GTO out for a spin one lunchtime?
  17. New 2nd Hand car time, Signum size

    I've had more Passats than you can shake a spanner at. They'll go forever and very rarely fail. It wont excite you in any way whatsoever but I don't think thats what you're wanting anyway If i was buying a car for the same purpose as you are, a Passat would be the first place i'd look. It'll keep the kids safe in an accident too
  18. 2 perfect Escorts

    Spotted on Whitby sea front . Absolutely flawless....better than new RS2000 and a Mexico.
  19. F30 issues

    I’m rattle free!! (So far) On the test drive to check the recall work, the rattle appeared. They stripped out the glove box and diagnosed it as a faulty damper used on the glove box lid. Replaced and rebuilt. Feels like a new car, I enjoyed the drive home
  20. F30 issues

    Since getting my 3 series in November, I’ve had issues with the wheel alignment. Im on my 4th set of front tyres as they’re being heavily scrubbed on the outer edge. They need changing with 4/5mm in the middle but the edges being totally bald. Im having 4 wheel tracking done with each tyre change but it’s making no difference. Most of my miles are A road and motorway, so speed bumps and pot holes aren’t any more of an issue than they would be to anyone else My car is in BMW at the minute for the second time for a rattle that’s been there since the day I collected it, but they can’t find. It’s already had a new glove box but the rattle returned within a mile . It’s a constant plastic on plastic noise Had anyone else with a 3 series had tracking problems?
  21. F30 issues

    It was diagnosed a few months ago as the glovebox so a new one was fitted. 30 seconds after picking it up, the rattle was back. Now it’s back it to be sorted and they can’t locate it so after 3 days I’m getting it back along with the rattle
  22. F30 issues

    Must be my driving bmw rang me yesterday saying they need the car until Saturday to fit an an oxygen sensor that has failed, and they’ve done a software update as a recall. Thsts all well and good, but they can’t find the rattle it went in for that’s driven me insane for 11 months
  23. F30 issues

    While it’s been in they’ve told me there’s a software update and potential egr issue to be resolved too
