    The Mondeo is no more

    Sad to hear it’s the end of the Mondeo they have always been good reliable cars offering excellent value for money. The average Mondeo family man was replaced years ago by 320d/Audi A4 S Line man who wants to look like he’s made it in life with his premium German badge. I still get the...

    AA vs RAC vs other?

    I have been with AA for 5yrs always believing they are the biggest and the best with there claims of fixing most cars at the roadside and quick call out time’s but having only used them twice both in the last few months I have been let down on both occasions recently. First time was a tyre come...

    How much does 3 points increase your premium? And when to declare it?

    Yeh I’ll just wait now I think even though the code must be cu30 as someone posted earlier I’m best waiting until my license actually comes back with the offence code and points on. Especially since the insurance company couldn’t actually find the code on there system. They have made a note I am...

    How much does 3 points increase your premium? And when to declare it?

    Oh yes lol thanks. It’s just with it being in alphabetical order and my code on the forms being RC I couldn’t find it. So is that what will show on my license when I get it back CU30 for insufficient tread? Surprised the insurance company couldn’t find it either. Now they have made a note on my...

    How much does 3 points increase your premium? And when to declare it?

    Thanks for all the info guys. So I should be prepared to be bent over then when I ring them today? When I rang up to haggle over the price last week and say I am renewing my insurance with them for another year which I pay outright we agreed the price and they sent the documents out but it...

    How much does 3 points increase your premium? And when to declare it?

    I’ve just checked the form I was given by the police when I was pulled over and it’s got an offence code for insufficient tread but as I say I didn’t mention nothing to the insurance when renewing because I had still not had any letters through the post it took over 5 weeks! and my license...

    How much does 3 points increase your premium? And when to declare it?

    So after 10yrs of driving I’m receiving my first points on my license :( was driving home just over a month ago on a fairly empty motorway put my foot down for a brief overtake as someone was middle lane hogging and carried the pace on for a good few miles. Cue getting pulled over by the law and...

    My card number and expiry date printed on receipt

    Ok thanks for the info I appreciate it. I might just get a new card. Yes I have always been against contactless having seen several documentaries on how unsafe it is but when I got my new card I was told by the bank they now automatically just come with contactless so thought I would try it...

    My card number and expiry date printed on receipt

    So to sum it all up because there’s conflicting replies it’s normal for a merchant copy to show all 16 digits and expiry date of a card and the customer copy only shows the last 4 digits but I didn’t get a customer copy because it was contactless I paid by? It’s just the fact the restaurant was...

    My card number and expiry date printed on receipt

    Thanks for clearing that up I was worrying they had my full card details especially with him asking for my card first to look at and the receipt displaying my full card number. Just me being paranoid then lol.

    My card number and expiry date printed on receipt

    Oh so it’s normal practice then for the merchant copy to show the 16 digits and expiry date? Normally in restaurants I use my pin as it’s always over £30 so maybe that’s why I’ve always got the customer copy that only displays the last 4 digits instead of the merchant copy. It’s just something...

    My card number and expiry date printed on receipt

    Random question to ask but I have never noticed this before when using my card to pay for something. I Was in a crappy run down restaurant before and paid by debit card using contactless. The guy came over with the card machine and asked for my card looked at it and said “oh is it contactless”...

    Who owns a Mondeo ST220 / ST TDCI?

The one on the passenger side removed fine but the big one on the drivers side of the CD player that has loads of coloured cables running into it...

    hot hatches 6k

    I fancied getting another hot hatch for similar budget to you OP but just can’t stomach the stupid prices of anything with a decent engine in they have all inflated with the rise of diesels and little 3 pot engines. Was shocked to see 12yr old Focus ST’s demanding more money than what I paid and...

    who fancies a mondeo ST220 Police Interceptor style ?

    I remember that on police interceptors :D I think his statement of “goes like stink” and “don’t know what they done to it” is slightly exaggerated there’s not really many useful modifications for the ST220 apart from an exhaust and few other bits might be able to squeeze another 20bhp out of it...

    Who owns a Mondeo ST220 / ST TDCI?

    Think I’ll get another Sony then should be able to get a used one off eBay for around £40. Do I really need to waste £5 on these key things to get it out or will a screwdriver and some force get it out? I’ve heard it’s awkward even with the 4 keys because of the way they are designed
