    Hi. I want to start driving for uber and I will be buying my vehicle in the next couple of weeks. I don't know wether to go for a Dacia Logan (uber x) or abused 7 seater like a Galaxy (uber xl). How much more can I potentially earn on xl? Thanks

    I have just reread my post and "abused" is an auto correct typo LOL should gave been used. But considering I was going to get a 100k ex Addison Lee Galaxy "abused" is probs more appropriate. Looks like I will be getting a Logan then, it looks like the perfect low cost solution.

    Would it be a good idea to pay the £850 for 100k miles warranty or keep the £850 in the bank?

    No I haven't checked yet. I will ask today when I go to the dealership.

    I need flexibility and driving will suit me. I want to buy a Logan anyway so its just a case of the uber fee and pco registration plus the insurance so its not such a gamble. For me I'm sure the positives outweigh the negatives, most jobs have bad points.

    I'm kind of in between Manchester and Preston, I think I will possibly be mostly around Manchester.

    You're right about the warranty not covering taxis.

    Ive not applied yet. I believe its is best for me to apply for my licence with either Knowsley council or Rossendale council, is this correct?

    That's useful info thanks. Should I get my licence before contacting uber?

    With a bit of luck Uber will lose there license with TFL and the whole Uber empire will come crashing down. Mate wait for the appeal first. I hate Uber and want to see the end of this toxic company but if your hell bent on becoming a slave ,hang on for a while.
