Well, my choice for complete cover would be GEM or Autoaid.

Both get good write ups, and you can contact either by text message to report a breakdown.
As you are all the font of knowledge and given my problems, I have gone onto a comparison site and it appears to be a toss up between Green Flag and GEM.

I would be grateful for any input from members please.

Cost to a degree is not the decider all we want is complete cover.
The biggest Joke of all is the RAC which offers cover on line. Unfortunately  Response ( for olduns like us) is not listed.

Sorry, there can be no enjoyment in sitting watching the mpg gauge all the time.

I totally agree, if you can't afford the fuel, use a bike or get the bus!

So in short I think the answer to my query is a combination of;

Jocko's theory of taking miles and days into consideration

& Steve_m's manual extract of when it's counting in days it only reduces down by 10 day intervals until it his the last remaining 30 days and then it counts down day by day

I'm assuming the system will show either days or miles which ever it thinks will come first.

Given that the car has only done 46k miles in 7.5 years so just over 6k miles per annum on average, I think the computer is showing the days rather than miles as it knows its unlikely I will do 30k miles to hit the 75k mile interval before hitting the 8 year interval.

I suspect if I went and drove 30k miles in the next 2 weeks it would likely switch over to miles than days automatically?

This is purely a theory and I'm not certain that this is how it works but it would make sense?

Just been looking on the Honda UK website and the Shining Grey Metallic colour is not a standard colour it's 500.

You're right.  It was the other day, I'm sure.  Now back to Orange and Red.
Dealers & Insurance / Re: AA Breakdown Cover - worth a haggle

I do have great difficulty with the general consensus that when I say I can't use a telephone. it is shrugged off as if I am a Martian. Because youngsters have plastic glued to the ears or in can't seen anything cos my phone is in front of me, they have NO concept of disability.
I cancelled the AA because they ppfaffed about. What did I get, If you RING us we might be able to work something out. I approached the RAC and they did come back with a decent quote. However they stated they needed to do it over the phone due to certain information required. A reference number was given and so I asked  my Wife if she would deal. What happened. The 0800 number would not work, She then got hold of a person who refused to take the reference number given, disputed the quote, refused to accept my credit card because she was giving the details and lastly because the original Email stated they needed a blue badge number, when she said we each have one, he told her, I can't deal with this. Best of all, he claimed the writer of the Email was unknown to him. Result. one upset Wife, one pi**ed off deaf old fart ( it's more complicated than that) and who now has to start again. I am so ticked I am taking advice about the Disability Discrimination Act and the Human Rights Act.   Emails are a fact of life and my way of communicating with the outside world. My parameters are pretty restricted without ar*oles who seem to delight in putting people down. SORRY letting off steam

I do not have a service reminder in our Jazz, so I just do what is necessary as the book states at either time or mileage whichever comes first.
As Jocko mentions mileage might mean nothing if it takes you well beyond the time recommendation.
I have just had our I shift box fluid changed because 6 yrs had passed but at 55.000 well short of the mileage in the book. If I waited till the mileage was up it would be another 3 yrs.
The Ishift box is basically the same as a manual so if you are worried get it changed. 2 litres of Honda MTF 3 from Cox's at a little over 20 plus carriage and a nominal charge from my local garage to change it while it was in having an oil and filter change.

Many thanks for all your comments - I don't think it'll disappoint me on the motorway from what you've said.

Am going ahead and will place an order for an EX very soon. Will probably sell my Golf privately and buy from an online broker to save some cash - but deciding which broker isn't straightforward.

Trying to focus on brokers with a good track record and not necessarily the absolute cheapest ones to avoid any dodgy ones.
