  1. For serving and ex forces here are a few examples from Forces Cars Direct:
  2. If anyone has a Defence Discount Card or Blue Light Card it's worth looking at their site for comparison purposes. They offer special deals to current and ex forces/emergency service workers via various suppliers (example below).
  3. There is a stretch (100 metres) of road near where I live that looks normal but feels like you are driving over rumble strips but with all 4 tyres. It's some sort of special road surface/covering that is designed to warn the driver of accident black spots or close to poor junctions and the noise and vibration it sets off makes most people lift off the accelerator. Or (tongue in cheek) maybe it's to warn blind drivers of the hazard ahead🙃
  4. In your screenshots you have your view set to 'ICONS' as opposed to 'LIST' which is fine as each file name ends in .ISO and the checksum file is present. Your problem, as mentioned by The Brace is that you have an extra and unnecessary folder on your usb drive (2021vMapUpdate). When you click on the drive letter for your USB it should only show a folder called FMU, nothing else, and when you click on that FMU folder you should see only the ISO files and checksum file. Any other combination or additional folders will result in failure.
  5. The screenshot is from the previous update but the same applies. As mentioned previously you need to unzip the attachments, create a folder FMU, then copy the unzipped files and checksum file into the folder. You will know if it's correct as the other files will end with .ISO Ensure the usb stick is blank other than the FMU folder. Start the car and insert the USB stick. It usually takes 2 or 3 minutes for the drive/folder to be validated so don't panic. Enter the code when requested and sit back for 75ish minutes needed for installation.
  6. Got an email reminder that it was running out in 30 days. I renewed mine online this morning and the email confirmation shows the registration, start date, price paid, and further down there is mention of the welcome pack that should arrive within 14 days.
  7. Not sure what's up with the site. I've literally just selected the person icon again and selected eStore, was given the first page of apps (which did not include the 2022v1 app) and scrolled to the bottom and selected 'Show All'. The 2022v1 Map Update @ £199 is further down the list, not greyed out. Selected it and was asked to sign in, did that and it was added to the basket but now shown as free via map care, then asked to accept terms and conditions on the next screen.
  8. I had similar issues initially, try this (just done it moments ago and it worked no problem). Log out and log back in directly to the eStore, select the map update at £199 and the next page should show it as a no cost item.
  9. I did not re-enter my home phone number, only my mobile, which seemed to do the trick.
  10. Just completed my free update 2022v1. Check your phone number details on the order. I updated my telephone numbers and got the same error message. I then deleted both home and mobile numbers and reset just my mobile number, hit save, no error message.
  11. I have an iPhone 11 and occasionally have a connection issue. I tend to only connect my phone when I want to use Waze and have a USB slotted in most of the time for music. Just unplugging then reattaching the phone seems to sort it out for me. Plenty of examples of fixes on Google for every conceivable variation of phone, not just the iPhone 11.
  12. I stopped using EMO drag type car washes several years ago after one caused a problem with a low profile tyre. The drag mechanism disturbed the tyre/rim bead on the front right and caused a slow puncture. Hand wash only ever since.
  13. I worked on the post office counter for several years and taxed thousands of cars. As Mike says the registered keeper is you. If a garage were to take a part ex for example and registered it to the garage before selling it on that would increase the number of previous owners on the registration document by 1. Dealers who pre-register new cars to meet manufacturer quotas for bonus and then sell them with delivery mileage make them a 1 owner vehicle before you buy it, making you the second owner.
  14. Does your centre console not have the indents for cables (excuse the dust on the piano finish🙃)?
  15. Just get a sample of oil analysed to prove/disprove any issues rather than just talking to the dealer/service dept. Millers are UK only but no doubt other countries have companies that offer a similar service. You tell them how many miles the oil has done and they give you a complete breakdown of the sample, levels of each/any contaminants, and whether the oil is still within tolerance. I had to use their services for a new Disco Sport with rampant oil dilution problems (a known problem on transverse Ingenium engines) to ensure I wasn't fobbed off at the dealers.
