    Will be dealing drugs next Thursday...

    Yes, I've decided to get my windows tinted. Obviously having a black CLS it'll look somewhat pimpish. But I'm fed up sitting in a greenhouse, and listening to the kids whinging it's too bright. I know aftermarket tint leaves a border, but the side windows will look good, as they have no window...

    Dealing with nuisance/unwelcome calls on landline.

    We have been (like many others) plagued with nuisance/unwanted & unwelcome callers of late and it has been getting worse with many callers now able to use a local dial prefix or a mobile dial prefix. So you see that on the phone and assume it's okay? Wrong... We are registered with TPS and had...

    So how does every one do it? Driving home today in slow dual carriageway traffic ... a numpty in a van was so far up my backside he may as well have been in the back seat! In that sort of traffic there's no where to go. Gets right on my wick!

    Looking to buy some Odeon cinema vouchers on ebay sell for about 4 quid a pop. Most sellers include in their listing an expiration date by which the voucher must be used. One seller has not so I wrote to ask when the vouchers expire. Me: How long is the ticket good for? When does it expire...

This narrative brings the story up to date with a further development and asks the question: what do you do when an M-B authorised repairer turns out to be a nightmare and there's no easy alternative? The car in question is a 2003...

    Are some people incapable of dealing with 50mph limits in narrow lanes?

    I live in Camberley and enter the London bound M3 at J3. Due to road widening schemes its 50mph average speed checks all the way to J2 which is the M25 junction. This week and last week I have seen the recent aftermath of 2 incidents involving multiple vehicles. The one last night had all 3...

    Dealing with conflit

    Nipped up to the Petrol Station to put 1/2 a tank in the X5 (£75&!) As I came out of the shop I noticed a ford Ka behind my car, with in turn a Mondeo attempting to pass the Ka. Unfortunately it was at such an angle that the attempt was doomed, and the nearside of the mondeo struck the Ka...

    Dealing with irate customers

    It happened at a New York Airport. This is hilarious. I wish I had the guts of this girl. An award should go to the United Airlines gate agent in New York for being smart and funny, while making her point, when confronted with a passenger who probably deserved to fly as cargo. For all of...

    dealing with scratches right through the clearcoat

    After my success with the deep scatch on my TT I decided to see if I could improve the appearance of some bad scratches on the 450. These ones are worse than the one on the TT, they are right through the clearcoat to the basecoat so no chance to completely remove them. Here we go, these are...

    Hoodless Brennan to close online share dealing

    It looks like Hoodless Brennan are ending their execution-only online trading service on 10th July. I moved from Halifax Share Dealing about a year ago as they were utter rubbish and paid through the nose to move my shares to HB. As HB were one of the cheapest on the market, that's a bit of a...

    When does private buying/selling become dealing?

    With all these auction listings appearing I'm curious to how many cars can you buy/sell in a year before you're classed as a dealer? I'm not particularly interested in making a living doing this, I have far too much on my mind keeping the current business running in this economic climate...

    Anyone use online share dealing?

    As per the thread title. Can anyone recommend an online share dealing service? I'd be trading fairly small amounts to start with so wouldn't want to be paying a fortune in fees for each transaction, and would like everything to be done online through a browser rather than using the phone...
