  1. Just north of J12 of the M6, just after the M6 Toll joins, across all four lanes your weighed as you drive, APNR takes the details of the vehicle, was there when it was three lanes and also included the hard shoulder at least seven years ago, DVSA wait for you just north of J13 and your escorted to the works unit just before J14 for a more comprehensive weigh.
  2. Wouldn't make a lot of difference, the vehicle is weighed in and out, they work on the difference, vehicle loaded going in at twenty tonnes, coming out empty weighing twelve tonnes, the weight difference is eight tonnes, even if it’s weighing light, the difference will still be eight tonnes.
  3. It’s bit more than that, they can pull the vehicle in for checks, if they have seen something their not happy with, Traffic Commissioner involvement is if they refuse to follow.
  4. I wouldn’t say they have no powers at all. https://www.commercialfleet.org/news/truck-news/2019/02/14/highways-england-to-stop-vehicles-for-dvsa
  5. 2016 Discovery, soon as you connect the van, rear lights on the Disco illuminates as do all the road lights on the van, it’s designed to according to LR, seen lots of other 2016 reg Disco’s the same, along with many Volvo’s, interestingly if I use a 13pin to 7pin converter and connect to a 7pin plug it does not illuminate the Disco’s tail lights or trailer lights. It is linked to the DRL’s, with diagnostic equipment if I turn the DRL’s off it all behaves correctly. We have a 2017 Renault van, no DRL’s, in fact they are not fitted to the ones on the forecourt today, though there is a facelift due next month of which DRL’s are fitted. All down to when the lights were type approved.
  6. Just had to modify ours earlier this week, two small self tappers, one in each rail.
  7. Nothing whatsoever, been using one of those holes for the last seven years, carabiner clips easily in. Not so keen on the eye in the rear bumper, should the trailer breakaway there is a chance the A Frame could foul on the breakaway cable before its done its job of actuating the brakes.
  8. Oil Service Required is to do with diesel in the engine oil based on algorithms of failed DPF cleans. Usually appears just before/after a service, there are two service indicators to be reset on the 2010 face lift FL2.
  9. We run a number of 3.5 ton Renault vans, normally cost us around 23k with discounts, they now do an electric version, price coming in just north of 60k, that’s right 60k, no discounts, payload is 300kgs lower, and with a loaded range of less than 100 miles, that is in the summer, the range is less in the winter with the use of lights, wipers and heater.

    Tow Assist

    Tow assist only comes if you spec the vehicle with full surround cameras, a lot of money.
  11. Seen a Disco, sign written, advertising towing service, does work for a dealer near me who has three branches, never seen him with towing mirror yet.
  12. Not a bad price, our Esso agency card price for this coming week is 121. 32.
  13. He he doesn’t need a receiver, the car is the receiver
  14. If you watched the security video, you would see one thief with like a laptop bag which is waved around the door and windows of the house looking for a signal from the Fob, he cannot extend his arms six or seven metres to the car door.
  15. Not quite, thief one amplifies the signal so the vehicle thinks the Fob is next to the vehicle, thief two stands next to the door to open it as the vehicle is fooled into thinking the Fob is by the door.
