    CLS which model would you go for??

    I too would like to change back to a petrol car, and in the absence of decent SUV type alternatives (petrol driven) my attention is turning to a CLS SB. I now only do occasional short journeys and have to make a point of going on longer trips just for the sake of the DPF in my current diesel. A...

    Increase Speed Limits - Online Petition

    I would suggest that the last thing our public roads need right now are "petrol heads and AMG fanatics" being let loose in "limitless" speed zones. :doh:

    Is my part-exchange car blighted by repair job?

    Thinking about part-exchanging my wife's 20 month old Ford. Car had a bash at the back last summer - quite an expensive insurance job - and I'm wondering if this will show up on some sort of car history check by the purchasing dealer. Car is absolutely fine so this is not information I will...

    Help - iOS 8 has stuffed my iPad...!

    It downloaded and installed OK - took about an hour - and I still have 5gb available usage. There was no indication there was anything wrong with the installation so I assume that's ok. Can't reinstall it, can I?? Now everything on Safari is dead slow, and apps which stall now include Maps...

    Help - iOS 8 has stuffed my iPad...!

    Upgraded iPad to iOS 8 yesterday and now nothing seems to be working. Anyone else had the same problem? If you haven't done it yet, suggest you don't, it's a nightmare!

    Anyone applied for Indian Tourist Visa lately?

    I won't be getting my jabs boosted until November...expect will have to pay, always have done previously. However, for the malaria prescription, I get one for myself and double the dose to cover wife. (ie, I say I am going for twice as long as I actually am). If you can take Larium, you can...

    Anyone applied for Indian Tourist Visa lately?

    Just to close this thread out, glad to say that my visas have just been returned by Visa Genie - took just eight days. Thoroughly recommend if you need a visa for India - you fill in their straightforward form, supply digital photos and they do the rest. They are on your side all the way and...

    Argumental

    I was disappointed that the thread had to be pulled. The grieving mother bravely wanted the very painful video to be circulated widely in order that others would learn the obvious lessons. She wanted to save lives (and probably has). Sadly, this Forum could not even debate the matter without...

    Think Bike video

    Quite...it must be a bit like having a tennis ball blasted at your windscreen by a top class player...but without warning it's coming... IMHO, the car driver was poorly advised to plead guilty. I would not have done, would you?

    Think Bike video

    Do we? You can't mean that...? If the pain of this video is to be of any value at all, it is to ram home the message that reckless riding will inevitably end in tears...for far more people than just the rider.

    Think Bike video

    ...and yet the CAR driver was prosecuted and sentenced for causing death by careless driving... ...Judge said it was the car driver's actions which caused the accident... ...car driver's fault then...!!??

    Anyone applied for Indian Tourist Visa lately?

    Thanks for that. In fact, these people... Indian visa photos - From just £4.50 for 4! ...will give you four prints of one applicant for a shade under £5. Probably as good a deal as you will get... You take your own photo, which shouldn't be beyond anyone with a digital camera, and email it to...

    Anyone applied for Indian Tourist Visa lately?

    Oh well, in for a penny in for a rupee (or two)... Can't get my head round the Embassy application process so Seven, I'm taking your tip and letting Visa Genie do it. If it all goes wrong I can blame you!! Another £70 on the cost of the visa but about £20 is clawed back by savings on postage...

    Anyone applied for Indian Tourist Visa lately?

    Thanks for all your helpful advice. To be honest, it has been a toss up between paying £100 admin fee to change to somewhere else, or £200-plus to go through the Visa pantomime. My travel agent says a lot of people book for India without realising that the Visa is a) expensive and b) really...

    Thank you. That's two of you mentioned further pain on arrival - is there more fun I should know about!?

    Anyone applied for Indian Tourist Visa lately?

    Well, you have obviously done the hard bit if you have got as far as that! What the hell is a person's Educational Qualification, for example? What is a Designation? The photos are a joke - must be 2ins x 2ins, which rules out passport-style photos, must be right contrast, no smiling...

    Anyone applied for Indian Tourist Visa lately?

    Thought we would give India a try for our next hol, and blithely went ahead and booked. Then the question of the Tourist Visa raised it's ugly head - another £100 quid each on the bill. Worse, the application process looks a nightmare, all sorts of confusing bureaucratic nonsense and a flaky...

    Cliff Richard and the young ones?

    Too true. What beats me is this reference to two pop stars on the alleged list of people frequenting Elm Guest House. I have racked my brains, but for the life of me I cannot think of who that may be (?!). :dk: :doh:

    Cliff Richard and the young ones?

    ...You are correct - that's what it was advertised as... It's really odd that the owners were convicted at the Old Bailey of running a disorderly house... ...again, I agree absolutely!...
