    OK, my Freelander's a 1 (2005) tdi and she had 56000 on the clock genuine when I got her. I wanted a 4x4 with ground clearance and also a reasonable loadcarrying capacity - she's not failed me on...

    Dennis, if you read part 1, you would have seen that towing out would have damaged the vehicle and it needed specialist lifting gear!

    OP, whilst I agree with you that this shouldn't happen,...

    Happened to me too many moons ago, only in my incident, the female driving the car in front of me drove onto the roundabout and then stopped! She said to give way to a lorry - the lorry in question...

    Trainman, you have far more faith in BT than I. In the last three instances of major faults (i.e. lines down), they refused to admit any problem (thankfully mobiles worked in those spots on the...

    I hope the assessment went well for you, Marie and if it has, think you are wise to have your instructor give you that little bit of additional help when you get the okay - it'll give you confidence.

    Firstly, I still can get incandescent light bulbs - bedside lights are touch lamps and modern replacements don't work and are dangerous. I have a nice little hoard of the old ones. Dennis, you...

    Santa, as we only use the Calor for cooking on the hob, rather than heating or anything else, the last cylinder I bought was 75 and should last me two years. When I had the gas oven a single...

    Personally, Dennis, dual fuel options are the best - even living down south, we had the Aga, electric and all the camping gear so we could always get hot water and something hot to eat. I remember...

    There's even less choice if you have to use Calor, Santa!! I had a gas oven as well as hob and swapped it for an electric for safety reasons (Mum couldn't see knobs and often turned them in feeling...

    Our island community trust is very pro-electric and we've just had a survey - a much better one than that which started this thread, although it did have some failings, regarding electric vehicles...

    Trying to be fair, think Dennis is referring to the message one sometimes gets when trying to post a message on here that one;s "token has expired".

    I thought it was just my appalling broadband speeds that meant I was having trouble but sadly, think you're right - they've given up! A real shame. I've found it very interesting and not just for...

    Just some other thoughts, Smudger, all forums seem to go through phases and yes, quite a number of others I go onto are much quieter, too. Summer holidays may be playing a part

    TBH, don't think the forum site is fixed properly.

    However, if other's internet speeds are as s$$te as mine, it's almost not worth bothering to post.

    Personal feeling only, but 50/50 sounds about right from insurance cos' viewpoint. Unless there's evidence on roadway of excessive speed/braking etc., it's likely they'll take the easy way out.

    I had the misfortune to have to get back in a hurry from the lowest reaches of Galloway on Saturday owing to a family emergency. Because of my starting point I had to circuit Ayr on A77 heading north...

    Sorry, but thanks to the exigencies of a certain telephone/broadband company that STILL hasn't sorted our local problems after seven months, getting on the forum is very hit and miss.

    I know I get laughed at because of the extra weight but if I'm off-roading then the trolley jack comes - won't use the pathetic jack supplied and the convenient compressed air jobs don't like sharp...

    Quite agree Snowball and I also carry a tyre inflator and call in at first garage after a puncture to check - not that one can always rely on garage tyre machines to be any more accurate.

    The OP says that vehicle A was performing a 3 point turn. The OP doesn't say whether vehicle A was not moving at the time. I simply think it's 50/50.

    Snowball, leaving your spare at home and going onto the mainland would cost us over 400 in accommodation and ferry fares - it's a no brainer. Have a proper spare with pressures checked and the kit...

    There's some info missing here. Personally, I'd not perform a 3 point turn that close to a junction. The presence of other people's driveways is irrelevant - they aren't part of the highway. It may...
