    Is there a risk making your car's VIN number public?

    Apologies, this one turned out longer than I'd expected, as the concept came up that VINs could also help thieves steal our beloved cars to order... Yesterday my M-B dealer sent me the VIN of my car which is being built in a week or so (hooray!). I was about to upload the VIN into that...

    Public transport in the sticks

    sucks. I had a hand op so for 4 weeks afterwards couldn't drive. I caught the bus into Slough once to go shopping - £9.20 return to go 3 miles and back. Then I had to go for an eye test at High Wycombe - the pupil is dilated so you can't drive for six hours. A shame because it is only 15...

    TrapperJohn - a public thankyou

    Just wanted to say publicly what a thoroughly nice man TrapperJohn is. Nothing is too much trouble and he goes out of his way to help others, a fact of which quite a few forum members are aware :bannana::rock::thumb: The BEST forum!

    Do you prefer to do it in public or in private?

    So, I was determined not to add any options to my C63 to keep the lease costs low, but now I'm getting a bit of a niggle about Privacy glass, most of my work colleagues think it would make the car look a lot better. I've ordered Obsidian Black with Sand/Black interior, I believe the car will be...

    Public Transport - Viable alternative?

    I have recently started to use public transport more often. Mainly because of two projects, one in Kent and one in Glasgow, which made road travel something of a chore. I did quite enjoy this, although I noted that the rail was nearly always more expensive than the air option. I have a need...

    Why public schoolboys run Britain

    I've just watched a very interesting documentary on BBC2 about our 'political elite' being public school educated. I'm not normally one to agree with Andrew Neil, yet in this case, the future doesn't look too pretty unless you're from a financially priviledged background. Very sad...

    Public Information Films.

    On The National Archives site (LINK) I found this section containing many Public Information Films. The first film listed is "Coughs and Sneezes" from 1945. Fantastic! There aren't many Public Information Films these days and browsing the site takes me back.. LINK.

    Public Enquiry Office

    Checking up on some immigration stuff I discovered this useful fact about the public *enquiry* offices on the Home Office website: "The public enquiry offices do not handle enquiries, or give advice." So why do they call them enquiry offices?

    MB World and Public Transport

    Thinking of going to London for a few days (as a tourist) and thought about a visit to MB World as it isn't too far from the centre of London. Has anybody travelled via public transport to MB World? The website states that Weybridge station is only a mile away, but I suspect this will be a...

    Racing on public roads

    I've been reading some of the recent threads about people racing on public roads. Last night on Look North, the local BBC TV news program, there was an article about a 17 year old with no licence or insurance racing his pal on the B roads of Lincolnshire. He came round a corner on the wrong...
