I am an Angloinfo resident living in SW France and am driving down through Spain to Tarifa next week. I am planning to spend a week in Morroco and would appreciate any help on the best place to park and leave my car; if it is secured parking so much the better, but not essential. Any info and help gratefully received. Many thanks

Hi folks,I'm usually a France AngloInfo person, but I'm coming down to the Costa del Sol for the winter and have a question.Can I get Millers Diesel Additive anywhere in the area. I currently get my supplies from a British dealer in France who imports it. I don't really want to have to bring too much with me so wondered if its available from anyone near Estepona/Duquesa. Possibly it's available in Gibraltar?Can anyone help please?

HI everyone thought id try here as I have been trying to get a sensable price for someone to either trailer or put a xsara on a truck near antequera and bring it down to mijas costa , but the prices i have been getting are anywhere between €75 > €100 an hour based on a 3 hr job there and back ! In my book thats robbery ! So does anyone know of anyone who has a car trailer and wants to earn some cash or a sensable priced grua ? I dont mind paying around €150 Ive been recovered from mijas costa before covered under the car insurance and that only took 1hr 20 mins back to antequera ! but new insurance wont cover the distance this time (that will teach me to do cheap insurance) I'm surprized spain doesnt have a recovery membership like the aa or rac ??anyway if anyone knows of anyone my email is in.the.sun.2010@gmail.comthanks in advance

Does anyone know what the law is on carrying a bike on a purpose built (UK) bike rack on the back of a car. I have read that the bikes on the rack should not project beyond the sides of the carrying vehicle/car. I must admit that I have only seen roof mounted bike racks here in SpainAnyone any ideas?

Hello. I wonder if anyone can give me some help as I haven't got a clue of the Spanish laws. I have a car sitting near Marbella waiting to be brought here to Brittany in France and I need some advice. It is a Toyota automatic and very friendly. When my parents died, we decided to close up and sell up so when the house finally sold the car was given to me but as it was in a garage and not used we didn't realise that it had no ITV or anything.If I get the ITV done can I drive it back here and get any problems fixed here? Also I will need to change the name of the owner as the owner has died, so could I do that in France? Will there be any fines for not getting all the bits needed done as the owner is dead and the car has been garaged for the last couple of years.What paperwork will I need to find and bring with me or give to whoever can drive it for me?Can I get an insurance to cover me to drive it back here? And anything else you can think of that I will need to do.P.S. If you know anyone that could drive it to Brittany (18Hrs according to my Sat nav.) that would be even better.Thanks in advance.

Just realise dI have been passing a speed camera on a regular route that had a 60 limit. I thought it was 80!I tried the link on this site to www.dgt.es but when I click on Saldo de Puntos (Sin certificado) or Saldo de Puntos y antecedentes (Con certificado) (not sure which i should use) I get this message:secure Connection Fialedsede.dgt.gob.es uses an invalid security certificate.The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is not trusted.(Error code: sec_error_untrusted_issuer)Can anyone help?
