I am a British Citizen that also holds a French driving license currently living in Florida, USA. My wife and I (she is also a British citizen) are planning to migrate to France in the next few years. Having purchased and owned a Harley Davidson here in the USA for the last four years I would like to import this due to the high cost of purchasing a Harley locally in France. However, having read how difficult in can be to import vehicles into France, I was wondering if anyone has had experience bringing a second hand car or motorcycle in France from the US and what it entailed. Any advise, how much did you get stung for import duties etc?

Thanks
Hi. I am moving to France soon and am wondering about initially leasing a car for a year or so, rather than buying one. I aan ssee lots of info about leasing if you are a tournist and not an EU resident, but I can't find much about leasing a car in France if I am residing there. Does anyone have any advice (1) about buying versus long term car leasing in France; and (2) reputable long term car leasing companies in France for expats (from the UK) living in France? Thanks.

Hello, Could anyone please give me some advice on what to do wth my old car. I notice that cars being sold for spares or repair seem to popular and was wanting to get an idea of whether it would be worthwhile selling or scrapping my old car. It is a Nissan Sunny, 1994, Right-hand drive, French registered, CT until NovemberBodywork in bad condition, rusted underneath, exhaust held on with bean tin! cracked windscreen (above line of sight), Engine fine though, am still driving the car for an hour each day and never misses a beat So basically wondering whether I am likely to get more for it scrapping it (do they pay here?) or selling it spares or repair. I need some money towards a new car so want to go with the option where I'll get the most for it. Thanks for any advice anyone can give. Sarah

Hi there, We two sisters are thinking of buying a second hand folding caravan in the UK and bringing it to live in France with us. It is 4m in length, 2 m wide and 1,5 m high. What kind of permit/licence will it need and is it easy to obtain in France? Also what are the peage rules on what is effectively a large trailer rather than a caravan? Any info or guidance would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks
So we had a stone hit us and we thought we got off lucky when there looked like there wasn't any damage. Little did we know the stone hit right under the wiper blades and we had a huge crack in our windscreen the next day. Do I need to phone my insurance company first or my garage got get this taken care of?
I wonder if anyone knows where i can find a list of cycle sportive or audax rides or any organised routed road rides , If anybody belongs to a club out there in the Languedoc region maybe you have a list of events. I spend a couple of months over there in the summer and want to keep up with my sportive miles. thanks for you help.
What is the best route to drive from the Channel Tunnel down to just west of narbonne. The route planners suggest skirting paris to the West (on the peripheriques) and then heading south. Is that the best way? We've always gone west on the motorways north of paris (ROUen) and then dropped down ... in order to avoid paris. Does anyone have a good route to recommend?Thanks
