Re: Low tax car, van mpv that can carry a scooter.

Thanks Tony, do they seats come out easily, clips or bolts? Is insurance and tax cheap on these? The rear seats come out individually and they’re fitted in with a latch so very quick to put them in/out leaving a completely flat load area. I pay £50/month on insurance but my NCD is on something else...

Re: 5 Gears for 500 Quid

I've just uploaded a fresh version of the Visualiser with both versions added and some additional tweaks. https:...

Hi,

Any tried and trusted recommendations?

Ideally London/South East, but could be tempted to venture into Essex!

Thanks in advance,
