Looking for a new one...

Sorry to you all for not posting for a very long time. My dear old taxi fell into disrepair, and has been scrapped. However, I am about to start looking for another one. If anybody comes across a really nice late one, with really good bodywork, please let me know. It's fantastic to read all your the comments, and I'm really pleased that this blog has helped some of you with your cab problems and questions. As soon as I get my hands on one, I will update of course...

  1. Hi I did wonder why you hadn't posted for a while... That explains it! I am currently doing the Knowledge of London to get my green badge. I needed another family car, something that would accommodate a family, something to travel in up to London from Brighton twice a week (to do my studies) an always loved the classic shape so about a year ago I bought a fab 97(R) Fairway Driver as a direct result of your Blog so please buy another, enjoy it as you did the other one and keep us up-to-date with your motoring...!

  3. Hi there,

    You should contact Dave from London Elite Taxis. They have wonderful old FX4s, I got my red one four months ago and have driven it across Europe lately. They provide great quality.

  5. I have just bought a fairway and have used your tips and advice when buying / finding somebody to service it. I just wondered if you knew where I could get roof bars that would fit the cab?

  11. une application destinée à faciliter la localisation et réservation d’un taxi se trouvant dans une même zone que le client qui parfois a du mal à le localiser alors qu’il se trouve à moins d’un bloc de sa position.
    Taxi-Diali, comme son nom l’indique clairement, c’est une application bien adaptée à tout téléphone mobile fonctionnant sous le système Android. Une fois téléchargée dans chaque portable, du client et du chauffeur de taxi, elle permet à ce dernier d’être facilement repéré par son client qui cherche patiemment un taxi.
    Bien sur, pour le client dès que l’application lui signale la présence d’un taxi ou plusieurs dans la même zone où il se trouve, il aura toute la latitude de choisir et de faire appel à celui qui lui convient le mieux puisque toutes les coordonnées du taxi sont affichées dans son écran. Lorsque le client valide son choix pour tel taxi , le chauffeur du dit taxi peut également identifier la position de l’appelant grâce à la géolocalisation intégrée dans l’application et rappliquer directement à sa position sans qu’il ne lui la donne.
    Taxi Diali est un service gratuit qui permet de faire gagner beaucoup de temps et épargner des attentes indéterminées à tous ceux qui sont en déplacement dans une grande ville ou tout simplement à ceux qui veulent pour une raison ou une autre
