All Car Discounts, Offers and Sale - April 2018
I'm not calling you out, just looking for details on who you spoke to, contact details etc.
Me! I could attach proof if I'm not believed but I don't post fake deals - look at my history.
No. Its not a MINI platform adopted by BMW. It was a BMW Group strategy of which MINI were the first to avail of it. Its a BMW group UKL (lower compact car is the translation of the abbreviation) platform which MINI were the first to use with the 2014 F56 MINI hatch, borne out by the fact that its BMW engines, BMW running gear and a lot of BMW electrical components. The UKL platform was a BMW vision - not a MINI vision and was first mooted in the press as far back as 2011 and attributed to BMW Group. http://www.motoringfile.com/2011/04/18/ukl1-platform-to-underpin-all-small-bmws-future-minis/ Its not a MINI platform that BMW have decided to use, but a BMW platform that MINI were obliged to use. In the same way as the 1.5 engine used in the Cooper but subsequently used in BMWs does not make it a MINI engine. The reason why MINIs are so big now is because they had to be fitted over this common platform - something that they struggled with internally to retain the MINI styling in a bigger body - not entirely successfully by all accounts. Effectively using the UKL platform was forced on to MINI and they had to adapt. All of this was done because of the huge development costs that BMW / MINI faced with the R53 & R56, so by having a common platform the costs can be spread across many models. And yes, BMW surveyed their 1 series customer base and something like 90% of them didnt know or care whether the car was front or rear wheel drive. RWD is "better", however it takes away a lot of internal space - something which the original 1 series was criticised for - and sticking with it would undermine the UKL strategy. 3 series, 5 series and 7 series will remain RWD, where space isnt such a constraint I've a 2018 Mini Cooper S and its very much a BMW in a MINI suit, and all the better for it IMHO.
It's a moot point since BMW owns MINI, but this platform was developed by/for MINI and then adopted by BMW (which, incidentally, after years of claiming rear wheel drive 'superiority' are moving to FWD - see next 1 Series). Oh, and MINIs aren't small anymore - they're huge!
I called Williams BMW and the told me that they don't do Personal leasing, but they do PCP if I'd be interested. Has anyone managed to get this deal?
We stayed at coco keys last year and had a fantastic time, great location for getting to Disney and universal, they even put on a free bus to universal
Us too, we'd have booked if it didn't eat into term.
Great price, I'd be tempted to do the clarion In lake Buena vista for less money though. Nicer hotel, cheaper, includes breakfast and closer to Disney. We stayed at the Coco in 2012 and although the kids enjoyed the waterpark element the rooms were terrible and the traffic on I drive now is horrific. Can take an hour to get to Disney.
My kids go back the 5th so would run into term time. I’m so gutted.
Cheers I didn't know that. Now the deal is looking even better!
How do you add the discount when you click on their link?
I've been thinking about getting a dashcam for a little while now, I assume there's a battery built in, does anyone knows how long it lasts on a single charge?
Never mind. It'll look good on your handlebars. :D
16GB will be enough. It just means that your footage will be overwritten quicker. Basically the bigger the SD card, the more space you have, the longer before the card gets filled and the older footage gets deleted to make space for the new one...
How big of an SD do I need is 16gb enough?
No chuggee.... dunno what you were thinking when you wrote that. New head unit that will give as good Bluetooth as this £100+ fitting. This is £26 and doesn’t need wiring and is not a head unit. You method is more expensive and a lot more work.
Sorry guys edited to say used.
Probably better off buying a better head unit with hands free built in.
Why haven't you mentioned its 2nd Hand OP?
Worth mentioning that this is a used item.
You can get this for £14.99 or 2 for £20 in mankind or if you're really lucky and have a game near you that has stock it can be had for £5/£10 Not voting hot as this is practically normal price.
Stars Wars and Hot Wheels, it seems an unlikely partnership. Yet, here we are.
I have got all but a couple of these from the Poundlands in Stratford. Plenty of stock yesterday..
it's random deliveries to stores. in Merthyr i found hot wheels marvel vol.2 and got all 8 different ones. also minecraft and hot wheels star wars star ships + star wars block busters
They have 9 different styles in my local store.
saw the post but the cars i found were different again so thought I'd share (y)
I guess there's no stores near you? Never mind. Here it is on Flubit for £5.86 including delivery. Simoniz Jet Black 500ml on Flubit
Plus £3.95 delivery.
A month or two? Id say that's pretty good. Just apply it again.
Looks okay for a month or two but then fades .. wouldn't buy it again.
£6.72 delivered on Amazon, good deal!
At the end bought on eBay or Amazon, Haynes version with grey cover, there is also red cover Chiltern(?) one.
Thanks richrab, just ordered a car manual. New customers also get an extra 10% off by submitting their email address beforehand, using the pop-up window that appears when arriving at the website for the first time. £22.99 down to £15.52 is just about acceptable for a US manual for my UK car!
Did you manage to buy it in the UK, or did you have to use a US based store to order it (from the UK), and then post it to you (in the UK) ??
Same with Mazda 3 first generation, no UK, not even Aus specific, just the US version sold on UK market.
They need to make the price drop the new RRP, their prices have been getting really silly over the last decade. Funny story for you. I used to drive an early, Japanese MPV; it sold well in the UK, but Haynes never made a UK specific manual for it, the only English manual was a US version. Haynes wouldnt sell me the manual; I had to order it from the US, even though:- a/ They are made in the UK (research through to printing) b/ My uncle WORKS for Haynes.
"Get behind the wheel of a supercar", lol.
Just collected the order and there’s no £5 voucher in the parcel nor given to me... Any help/advice please?
Back to full price now.
Argos has this and its in the 2 for £15 offer.
https://www.tesco.com/direct/new-bright-1-24-bugatti-chiron/254-5716.prd?source=others £9 at tesco. The £5 debenhams voucher makes it quite appealing though.
Not quite in mine, it's £1.29 but that's still good price for the cool breeze flavour which no one ever does.
Not sure why anyone buys this stuff (weird habit) but if you do PLEASE don't dispose of it on the ground like dog ends! What's wrong with people who think that's OK?
Are there ever any similar deals for the bubblegum flavour? It is literally the only one I like to chew now!
Good deal! Usually £2 elsewhere, I often buy on £1.50 deals. Also the car clip is great ( though you only need it once!)
Same price at home bargains. Good deal.
I bought some parts of this deal recently as a quick kit away from something better. The bucket is okay, cheap enough that having two is a no brainer to reduce contamination of the shampoo bucket. The microfibres I got with a mitt, they're very cheap and nasty. The shampoo itself foamed up in the bucket, but even using vastly more than they suggest, it barely had any suds on the paintwork, and felt akin to using no shampoo at all. I won't even bother to use the remaining shampoo. Overall, yes it will rid your car of dirt, but it will not leave it looking glossy wet, or stay clean for very long. Along with this you'll be damaging your paint with the sponge (although it's something I use on wheels and it's fine for that)
Good for you
You're the one mentioned washing up liquid,I buy pro valet trade stuff at £20 for 5 litres.
So buy shampoo then
Good enough kit to wash the windows on the house - buckets are quite handy but would not use any of it to wash the car
Managed to get mine for £50 because it was missing the dab antenna and microphone. Got cheap ones of Amazon and they all work great. Agree with the dim display, but good enough for my needs!
Reserved one at the oldbury branch. Not bad for the money, sadly when I turned up the front of the unit was all scratched up so gave it a miss. I have a higher end pioneer touch screen(£150) reserved at the selly oak branch hope that’s in good condition.
Well at £75 and no touch screen, it's not really surprising.
Shame it doesn’t come with airplay or android auto
Nope, if it did halfords couldn't sell you one lol.
Cant the dealer track it?
He'll apply a "correction"
How come? Tips please?
Like this part I don’t have a particular issue with Jags, used to work with them, and have owned a couple, but badge buyers need to know that spending extra for a ‘posh’ brand usually doesn’t equal owning a better car. And I agree
Sure thing... http://www.carleasing-online.co.uk/mercedes-e~class-estate-e220d_estate_20_amg_line_auto-181015-personal-car-leasing.html
Yes, not even any good deals before year end as I would have expected and none now either. Just when I am in the market froa lease deal.
Is it me or there a distinct lack of good leasing deals on, especially more expensive cars. A surprise really given that sales have slowed.
Could you share the website link please. Thanks
I think the answer is yes. I have no problem with how people spend their money, the aim of this site is to find the best deal once they have made their mind up on what they want to spend it on
Great price for a solid selection of tools. Lifetime guarentee and nothing but fantastic reviews! HOT
A really good selection of tool in this, including torx sockets which are used on most modern cars and which a lot of socket sets don't include.
Miami here I come.
Not sure why link isn't working, maybe my search link will work? https://www.thomascook.com/search?resortCode=usa-any&resortCode=lapland-any&goingTo=USA, Any&goingTo=Lapland, Any&depAirport=0&sbDepAirport=0&origin=Any Airport&flexible=false&when=any&occupation=2,9,11,13&sort=price_asc&keepFilters&start=0&end=9#pageTop
You will definitely need to upgrade hire car which will cost substantially more .More in fact than not bothering with the TC car hire and sort your own direct!
link doesnt work
