Re: Insurance Quotes - jumping up by £5K+!

I will not comment on your individual situation as I do not have the definitive answer. However to add to the last post, your quote may be based on a whole host of factors. Certainly the "risk" based on post code lottery is one. Do you have a tracker, is the car garaged, its it in secure area, is it...

Re: Beaulieu 4th October 20 - still on

I note Brian Waters comment "they assured me they would park us on hard standing". I am glad I did not go under the weather circumstances, but often the organisers of events which are Events Companies, or the locations give out mixed messages and when one attends its not as advertised.

Bicester Heritage Brand Event meet 18th-20th Sept 2020

I was at this event as part of the BMW CCGB stand last weekend, over the days we saw a number of ALPINA cars displayed. I did not take pictures and would not post them as I do not have the owners permission. There was a very nice E39 touring owned by a gent from Amersham and a B9 3.5 in red by a cha...

Re: Busted E65 Silver B7

First is a 745 and second 730, but equally impressive.

Re: A-Plan Insurance - Scheme for Members!

I read your post (Music) with much interest and some sympathy. Two things, one via A Plan Thatcham I have an agreed value with the underwriting insurer for my vehicle. Therefore suggest that if people want a guaranteed pay out that they negotiate the agreed sum at the inception of the policy. Second...

Re: E65 B7 #059

I prefer to use my B7 when and where possible No 106. However only for shows etc. I was great to hear about 059, but explains why we have not seen it. All I know is when I take mine to events and shows I get more positive comments than negative, those who dont like the E65 will never like it, but th...

Re: Indoor car cover

If you are a member of the BMW Car Club GB Limited, they have a deal with 10% discount from a company called Hamilton. I bought one of their covers 5 or 6 years ago at the NEC, its very good and not too heavy.
