    981 garage remote door opener switch mod

    Looks like an excellent / discreet / useful and reversible mod! Nicely optioned 981 too...

    How to weigh you car for cheap with bathroom scales

    I "think" (from swapping the fuel sender out on a 986) the fuel tank sits central - under the battery - evenly distributed.
  3. Great cheap fix. I bought the Porsche kit a while back, fitted it around page two or three of my old running report http://www.BoXa.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=62446&page=1 Worked very well - But the kit was around £20-25 then.

    Chancel liability insurance

    Cheers Mike (I am ultra tight !!). He had a better attitude today - just the arrogance and feeling I was being conned. Anyway - it's a sunny weekend ??

    Chancel liability insurance

    Thanks Glyn - I've checked the land registry and there is no registered charge / interest on our title - which is all good. (Totally agree if there was one I would 100% just suck it up - and yes still whine about the admin fee!!). I see the church can subsequently apply for the rights - but as you say that is beyond the 2013 deadline (given to them in 2002) to register their interest in certain properties - ie at time of purchase it was fine for me. I can see in the future a similar situation to PPI - where (like me) I've been told to have liability because there is a church within a few miles! and people will be reclaiming the policy costs... (Maybe).

    Chancel liability insurance

    Stu - Top advice as usual. Oddly the mortgage company (checked with two of their underwriters) say it is not a condition!! Called solicitors - admin team tell me it's a condition / a must have - I explain I've called mortgage provider... ... get put through to the solicitor. I deal with all sorts of people in my job - But what an arrogant, patronising, aggressive chap he is! (Presumably because effectively his bluff was called). Anyway all will be well - mortgage company have emailed him saying it is not required - hopefully job done. Thanks again for the advice.

    Chancel liability insurance

    Hi Stu - That's very useful - thank you. To be fair they 'appeared' up front - I'll review the written quote today / in addition to speaking to the lender directly and see how it pans out. Thanks for the advice.

    Chancel liability insurance

    I need to confirm that is the case (ie it is insisted as opposed to 'i'm obliged to try and word it as if you need it....'). Totally agree with all the comments - just annoyed over another "admin" (aka doing my job) fee.... But no big deal in the grand scheme of things.
  9. Hi all, just in process of purchasing a house which has got the 'potential' for risk against the chancel costs (ie church coming begging for repair monies etc). My own view is this is total nonsense and would never be put into effect in practise. In my last two houses I did not have this insurance. However my solicitor has stated it is required by the mortgage company (I'm yet to get that from horses mouth). Reason for the moan is that the policy's are only £15 (many sites offer these). However these policy's are for solicitors - and my solicitor wants to charge £60 admin fee to arrange (ie press a button). They won't budge on the fee... I've had a brief look - and it doesn't look like many brokers at all offer chancel insurance direct to the public (and those that do have a broker fee of £50 ish...). I realise everyone has to make money - but has anyone had experience in getting a decent chancel policy for a fair price / without (what i consider to be) a large admin fee...? Cheers

    ADMIRAL Multicar

    Thanks Eddy - I'm going to call and clear that up with them as my 987 had a few boxes ticked from new.

    ADMIRAL Multicar

    Not claimed, aside from a screen in the 986 (which was fine despite my fussyness!) but been insured with them last three years. Initially the 986 s & wife's 206, good prices eve at renewal. This year they couldn't help me with her (new to her) A3 Sportback. So she left them. I had insured my daily (mangy Honda civic for £170 a year). I then added the 987 - reasonable - as both 987 & civic cost me about £450 together, very pleased. Only downside was altering the plate (if later than 14 days of start of policy) admin charge (regardless of my moaning) was £17.50... Other than that - happy.
  14. Happy detailing new purchase....
