... 1400, eh?

 

I reckon a general 'wtf'/where's my cash attitude will prevail (its only a car)...

 

Find someone who left their MOBBY in it... OOF!! .... Now there is real distress  :shock:

Took the RR back to Steve to get a few little jobs done that he didn't have time to do , starter wasn't great so got a new one 30 min job

Fitted the new wheels , spun one and screech , wheel bearing plus the gaiter had a split

Bearing was huge and under £30 which surprised me , he said right let's get on with it

Lots of hammers and swearing0 later 1/2 the bearing was out , then he produced a new tool that went round the hub and pushed the rest of the bearing off

He looked at it for 30 seconds then said fuck it

Inner race welded itself to the hub?

I've got a bearing to do to the Hyundai. It's one of these complete unit things so hopefully easy enough to swap.

This was a huge bearing , think it was £23+vat

Bigger job than I thought, he tightened the bearing and the squeak went but when I saw how much the bearing was and 50% of the job had been done just to get the boot off I though it's be a false economy not to replace it while it was there

Except, got the bearing in about 6pm opened the boot box ,fuck wrong boot shop shut, so I'm picking it up tomorrow

Feck me that RR car park fire is some grief and aggro for a load of people. You rock up, pay for your ticket my cash, park up and leave your ticket in the car.

How the feck do you prove you were there other than witness statements from family and friends. Presumably while the OP says 6000 claims for 1900 bays. You got no car and the expensive digital SLR Camera in the boot has gone.

Some Fecker of a loss adjuster will be assuming your claim is over exaggerated and looking to mitigate their loss to nothing and your loss as high as it can be.

By the time you submitted a claim and the v5 and they have cross matched to the scrap in there, assuming they have the capability to do that, how long will it take and how much will that all cost someone.

Glad it wasn't the RR of this parish, which is a mighty fine result and hats off for the balls for taking it on

Personally I think for the majority of folk out will be a relatively straightforward claim, no injury claim involved immediately so hopefully with CCTV evidence (as it will go back to a central system somewhere) it shouldn't be too difficult to prove you were or weren't there that day, shopping receipts, car park ticket (I always take mine with me as I stated driving in the early 90's in Swansea which was rife for car crime, one of the worst in Britain and the thieves always targeted cars with tickets left in them) after all if your car was in there you would have needed to get home somehow/would now be driving about in a hire car. The difficulty comes as you say when they start trying to claim they had the original "the scream" in their boot along with ten gold bars they were just* on their way to deposit safely. To keep below the radar they took their 51 plate Ka just incase therefore now want 89 millionty pounds in compo. Honest guv.

I'm guessing most will be settled asap, I wish I'd had some of my old chod parked in there !!!

Mine was pretty bubbly on both rear arches once you had the rear doors open. Didn't dare go near them with a wire brush on the drill. The upper tailgate was also going badly on its lower edge. It had been resprayed about 4 years ago due to same but was pretty terrible again on the nearside. It's a shame, as that was the only obvious cosmetic issue it had, other than a bit of hazing on the bonnet (which had also been redone after a 90mpg pheasant strike - the most Range Rover accident ever?)

 

I still haven't experienced the TD6, I really must, as the V8 just isn't suitable as a daily for me at the mo...

I love driving it , looking down on the peasants below me , a guy drifted out of his lane on a big roundabout , saw 2.5t of Range Rover bearing down on him and quickly went back to whence he came

Six-Cylinder says that about the drifters, tailgaters and dodgy overtakers too. He can even go slowly in the RR and they all tuck in neatly and behave themselves, whereas if he's going all out in the Visa (which isn't actually a slouch at the upper end with its 1.7 diesel engine and the bodyweight of a Rice Krispie) he is targeted by all of them all at once.

 

Interestingly, the combined mpg achieved between these two extremes of diesel vehicle is about 34mpg, which isn't bad. The RR manages 22-24 on a run, but goes down to around 18 towing the boat. The Visa is 51.something mpg all day long, regardless. We don't tow the boat with it though... :-)

How is this going?

 

OK, there's a slight vibration when sat at lights that goes off if you put it in neutral so a gearbox flush might be due though I read good and bad things about changing the fluid so I might try an additive recommended on the RR forum first to see if it cures it

 

I really like driving it , it does like to keep you on your toes though, when problems are announced you get the bong of death along with a message on the dash so you hear the bong and think, fuck £1500

 

So far I've had , bong, key battery low and bong , it's 3 degrees

 

I've got some interior upgrades to modernise it a bit but I'm going to put it through a MOT before I spend any money on it then I'll decide whether to make it look newer with a facelifted exterior, I've got a dateless plate on retention I could put on it.

 

I like it that much I was considering selling it and looking for something newer once I've sold the B class but newer RR prices are a laugh, I'd need to put 10K to it for a worthwhile upgrade and I might be looking at a ticking time bomb because they've all done over 100k at £13,000
