Off Topic (Non-Honda) / Re: Electricity generation. The pros and the cons.
« Last post by JimSh on Today at 03:07:42 PM »

One thing we should be honest about is the folly of burning wood to make electricity. That really is a political con-trick. It's the way it is treated as a "renewable" so zero carbon in the country where it is burned. The carbon is safely locked up in the fuel.

Drax receiving subsidies from UK Government.

“The government’s plan to tackle climate change through planting trees is in flames as it gives over £800m a year to Drax to be the biggest source of greenhouse gas emissions from burning imported wood, compared to £650 million over five years on tree planting and woodlands.”

Here is a policy document
http://www.carcareplan.com/fulfilment/jardines/policy/9600_Jard_Alloy_In_PH_Apr15_v3.pdf

But it does appear they do specially tailored policy versions for different manufacturers. There is a Ford one.

Polished and chrome finishes are excluded . And split rims..  And also excluded if the approved repairer (There is only one) fails to match the cosmetic finish of other wheels.  Does this mean if they try but  make a peppa pigs ear of it you're not covered?

I suspect the problem with EX wheels is not that they cant  match the alloy wheel. But that they are not willing to also cover the cost of repair /replacing the plastic wheel trim which would probably also be damaged.They are probably quite expensive at main dealer prices

They may now have come to some arrangement with Honda  (or is it arranged by  the independent dealerships ? )
Possibly some  dealerships prefer not to sell it for the EX  to avoid  disputes when  disgruntled customers discover the plastic cover  is not included . Some may be happy enough for just the alloy repairs.

Incidentally the Ford version of the Policy appears to allow for after market alloys  to be included for winter tyres, by prior agreement with care car plan.

The dealer I bought my car from was also offering cosmetic damage cover and also a separate wheel policy - except for some reason they weren't allowed to sell the wheel policy for Jazz EX?

Perhaps the combination of plastic and black alloy mean the wheels are too complex for easy low cost repairs?
I took out the wheel cover for my EX

However not sure Is it the heater the issue or the ac?

Heater turns on when you choose on climate control temperature higher then outside/in vehicle temperature, more difference between outside or in vehicle temperature and temperature you set more energy will be consumed.
Heater also starts in summer if temperature that set becomes higher then outside or in vehicle.

Yes but is the issue the heater or the air con.  As You can turn the heater on but have the aircon off
