And another thing...................

Why do car company's advertising agents take pics and make vids of cars for the UK market that show LEFT HAND DRIVE CARS! :angry:

For your in formation we drive on the left here and most cars are RIGHT HAND DRIVE! :eek:

Recent guilty parties are Audi, Nissan and RANGE ROVER of all people!

It's not difficult to do it properly, if you must use LHD cars in the media for your export customers, just reverse the pics and the vids for the UK adverts. It shows woeful disregard for your potential UK customers if you insist on doing this and certainly would persuade me NOT to take a blind bit of notice of your product.

Not that I could afford a Range Rover Hybrid Velar anyway.......
Kit, many manufacturers, including Ford, fit their advertising car with a numberplate with symmetrical letters and numbers, such as WHM 818, so that the car can be shown as a RH or LH drive for British and European markets, with a readable numberplate,
Simples!

Today, I'm uber-grumpy about so-called collectables. Over the course of her life, mainly the last 40 years, Attila spent untold thousands of GBP on ornaments etc, etc. Her house is rammed with Goebel (among other "name" manufacturers) figurines, dinner services, ribbon plates, various colours of Wedgwood "Jasperware", canteens of EPNS cutlery - I could go on and on. She just seems to have wanted to be surrounded by "stuff". Why the hell she ever wanted 4x full 12 place-setting dinner services is anyone's guess.

We've had several dealers round to look at it, but none of them want it - not even for free. There have been two firms of "house clearance specialists" who have said "Not worth our time, you'd be better off taking it to the tip yourself."

I'm not bothered that I won't get any financial return on the stuff, and I'm not sentimental about the stuff either, but it pisses me off that I'm going to chuck it all in a skip because no-one wants it. I even checked on eBay, and the dealers are quite correct in what they've told me, it just isn't selling.

As a final resort, I'll try putting some of it on FreeCycle - but I'm not holding much hope of it going to a loving home.
Perhaps offer the crockery and cutlery to a care home, or Salvation Army, with the rest to a charity shop?
