  1. Great news Patt. It often seems to go this way - it certainly did for me, two redundancies resulted in two changes of job that got better each time and with money in the bank 😎 All the best mate.

    Renewal Time Madness

    That’s the beauty of drugs 😌 You know that pint I bought you...
  3. So I’ve just had the renewals through for my Boxster and my wife’s Citroen C1. I have an agreed value of £30K, track day cover, 5000 miles, OPC repair and windscreen cover, recovery etc on mine. The Citroen is worth £5K, 1000 miles, recovery and that’s about it. My renewal is < £300 and the wife’s is nearly £400! Neither of us has points and we are both a similar age. Manning will be getting my business for another year but I think I may need to look elsewhere for the Citroen 😳

    I have got much better quotes now. Admiral are extracting the urine for an existing customer.

    Renewal Time Madness

    😬 Yeah I get that. My wife liked the look of a standard Fiat 500 so I thought I’d try and get her something I wouldn’t mind driving so much - even if it’s a little OTT 😇 No joy though. Still it saved me some cash and she loves her C1...

    I have tried everything, she only likes small low powered cars and hates driving/drivers/roads/people who like roads etc - you get the picture...

    Err. She chose it! Believe me she is the most non-car person in the world. I tried to get her into an Abarth 500 but there was no chance as it looked like a ‘boy racers car’...

    He told me it made him too tacky (as if!) and prefers sunflower oil to keep it natural...

    Yes well I could suggest that - but really she is safest in a C1, for all of us, believe me

    If you like yes No idea, I just know it's a reasonable amount cheaper than last year with all the same cover - 5000 miles, agreed value, OPC repair and windscreen cover, track day cover etc... all for less than £300 notes, not too bad in my book.

    I just renewed with Manning - at a lower cost than last year, during the conversation it turned out that attendance at the CAT DT day in September has qualified me for a discount - one reason it's gone down in cost

    Just wipe on and leave - there is a little sponge built into the bottle - you don't put masses on....

    I use this stuff on all rubber seals to keep them supple and I would think (but can't guarantee!) that it would help prevent freezing... https://www.amazon.co.uk/Nextzett-Gummi-Pflege-Rubber-Mercedes/dp/B01KXM5VCG

    That does not seem too bad. Mine lives in the sticks. Off-road. In a locked garage and is not my main car.

    Manning for the Boxster has benefits that I won’t get from a mainstream. I will shop around for cheap and cheerful for Mrs R’s C1 though 🤓

    Keeping pesky cats off your Boxster ?

    Scarily enough that seems to be true! ?

    Employ Grotbags as an Emu scarer?
  20. Good luck Patt. I have been through this process twice now in my career - and both times I ended up in a better situation and with a cash balance from the redundancy package - so hopefully you fare well in the end mate.
  21. Bugger! Bad news Patt. Good luck mate, I'm sure it will all work out in the end for you.
  22. I’m happy with Manning. Due to renew in December. I’m hoping they are competitive as the policy and service I have received from them has been excellent this last year (and was actually lower cost when I took it out than Lockton or Admiral to name two).

    Will it be covered?

    Fair comment. I might have caused a reaction previously with my very sensible and considered suggestions. ?

    Will it be covered?

    No idea on liability in this circumstance but have you had a polite word with her and asked that she drive around the roundabout according to UK conventional rules to avoid any possibility of an accident?
