Second part to the Essen Motor Show. If you haven't already I recommend checking the show out - its not far away and has some amazing builds including modern and classic modified cars and untouched classics. They had a hall with so many special classics in which will be covered in another episode.

In this episode of Essen Motor Show coverage we take a look at the CFD BMW M4R boasting 700 BHP and many parts from 3D Design and Varis.

Anyone know how long does a non-fault claim usually go on before its gets resolved? Got rear-ended last March my insurance has given me a value for my bike (CAT-D). Third party has either admitted or denied liability.

Took over a year to finally resolve a claim when someone drive into me, even though my car was fixed within a month of it happening. Third party denied liability, his insurer refused to pay my hire car, solicitors, court action etc etc.

A claim that wasn't my fault is still going after 3 years. Solicitor had to do some thing that when it passed the 3 year mark (29/4/17) it had to be sertled within 21 days feom then so hopefully be sorted soon. Such a load of shit.

Been talking to the third party insurer seem to be in no rush in getting this resolved sooner. Was advised would take about three weeks for their "investigation". Might have been a mistake of sending back the hire bike they might be more inclined in settling the claim quicker?

Yes, bought a car through them about 2 years ago. Standard of service exceeded my expectations, though they only really facilitate the transaction and make introduction to the supplying dealer.

Their responses are quick and their overseeing of the process was faultless. If they are close to being the cheapest for whatever it is you're looking for then I'd highly recommend based on my experience.

The clue is in the name Eye-wink

Clothes/sneakers is my next passion after cars. Although don't post much on here recently as been super busy with the new brands launched in last 2 years.

Other than cash, safest way to request payment for a car sold on ebay?

Can bank transfers be reversed?

I always request bank transfer, sometimes watch them do it - if its under 10k it goes via fasterpayments method and is instant. If its in your account then its irreversible (might not be true if they pay by cheque)
