    No Claims Bonus

    I am maybe about to ask a silly question, I hope not. If you do not have Protected No Claims Bonus and there is a claim, do you automatically lose all your No Claims Bonus? I am thinking of a situation where a person has 20+ years of no claims. In other words, is protecting your no claims bonus...

    Am I odd or have I seen the light?

    Fot those of you who spend hours waxing and polishing their cars , now is the time to look away. You see, I used to be one of those who did exactly that. I spent a fortune on the latest products believing all the sales blurb. In more recent years, I have merely washed the car using a decent...

He said he was unable to fix...

    Change of Internet Provider

    Within the next couple of weeks, I plan to change internet provider, something I have never done before. Is it a seamless process or can I expect a delay for a change over to take place?

    This is not MB related but any help would be appreciated. It concerns my wife's Ford Fiesta. While it is sitting, it makes noises akin to hot engine cooling down, except the car has been sitting unused for a few days. I would understand it if it made the noise after it had been raced, but no...

Don't mention CTEK-the last one I bought lasted 14 months and the factory were looking more than the purchase price to repair it. I bought a Noco Genious -it wouldn't charge up fully.
