    Indeed. Might be worth calling the new vosa and passing on any info you have about the snake who’s running the scam.
    The blokes a parasite and this new germ will wipe him out with any luck.

    I dont think so, because the guy i bought it from didnt have it advertised anywhere. I will call 101 later just to notify them, not that they will do anything about it.

    You do realise that if you leave you car parked somewhere with the roof down and it was stolen that a lot of Insurers will not pay out because leaving your car in that manner is considered insecure. :(

    That happened to a very good friend of mine. He got zilch. :eek: Luckily his car was recovered with minimal damage so he was lucky :)

    Well I'd never really considered that. It sort of makes sense. But, and it's a big but, convertible cars presumably carry a loading due to their very nature and when parked with the roof down and car locked the immobiliser and alarm are activated. Surely that should be taken into consideration when rating the car???

    It would but then even with the roof up on a rag top it is still vulnerable and easy to break in to :rolleyes::(

    Exactly!
    I'm afraid l have a very dim view of insurance companies who seem to look for every possible reason to avoid a pay out yet try it on at every renewal or car change!
