Re: Ghost Immobiliser

Just read about someone on PH who fitted a Ghost immobiliser to his car, it suffered engine failure and BMW are refusing to pay up as the car was modified (the Ghost immobiliser).

Re: Thoughts on travelling 100+ miles to view a car in current conditions?

Nobody is dependent on them :lol: In all honesty my opinion is it's not worth falling out with someone over covid guidelines. Imagine that's the last time you ever speak...... life's too shor...

Re: Thoughts on travelling 100+ miles to view a car in current conditions?

Law or not it just comes down to common sense. I’ve fallen out with my mother because she did a 65 mile round trip to a garden centre to buy one plant for her hallway. If she can do that she didn’t need me to do her weekly shop and run errands for her.

Doing things like this is a perfect example how the virus is spread. Why do you think laws have been made to stop people doing stupid, pointless and unnecessary trips like this.
