    Which breakdown cover??

    I've been paying £39.76 per month for AA breakdown, relay and parts and labour (max £500 per claim) cover for 2 cars. That adds up to £477.12 per year and £199 of that is the parts and labour cover. SWMBO's car is a Nissan Quashqi so we probably don't need the parts and labour for that one...

    Breakdown diagram Audi 20 (2.5)

    Just got one of these and it was not packed too well so one of the "mounting points" has broken. It seems to be part of a component with a mounting point at each end that simply screws on. I have seen "exploded" diagrams of units with the part number of each component - anybody have access...

    I'm driving to Italy, and have been told that I need 5 star breakdown cover. "You must ensure you take out five star European breakdown cover for the vehicle" Any idea what this is? All major breakdown companies seem to say they are 5-star breakdown... but I'm guessing it means something...
