Hi all, I am just travelling through Lyon en route to Prague and have had a transmission failure on my car. The car is a 2002 BMW530D that is in good shape otherwise. I need to find someone to buy it as soon as possible. It is not worth it to me to have it fixed, but it could be a great car for someone who has the tools or knowledge (or contacts) to get it repaired for less than they want at the BMW garage. Does anyone know of a mechanic or garage in the Lyon area that specializes in this type of thing? Thanks.

Hi looking for a new car and a friend was telling me they were a lot cheaper in other EU countries. Has anyone ever done this? Are they cheaper than here in Lyon where they do seem pricey? Hows the re registering process etc. Thanks for any info.

I had a crash in Lyon at the end of September in my right hand drive Hyundai i10 (small car). I still haven't got it back from the garage and talking to the garage it might be ready next week (but I don't trust them) which would have taken 3 months in total. I'm insured by the MAIF because they (sort of) have an English service. They have been terrible. They have promised to phone me back many times, even getting them to promise personally, but they have only called back once! Now my french isn't great but it seemed that the information that I get from the insurance, the expert and the garage all conflict. I feel like I've been treated really badly, and the problem is that my French isn't nearly good enough to have a go at them.The garage keeps putting back the date they think the car will be finished, always blaming someone else. "We are waiting for the Expert to view the car", "There is more damage than we originally estimated, need to wait for the expert to come back", "The parts are going to take ages", "Hyundai didn't send the parts this week, until next week". I get the impression that they are discriminating against us because we are British.The back end of the car was totally replaced a year before and that only took about a month in Britain.Do you think I have any rights to get any money back for them taking too long and being incompetent or somewhere I might be able to get some advice from?

Hi, I was driving around France a week ago, but unfortunately the head gasket blew. I've had to leave the car in the street in the Bron area of Lyon (free parking area) and fly back to the UK. Does anyone know of a mechanic in that area - preferably honest and cheap? I could scrap the car but would prefer not to. Unfortunately it's a right hand drive Rover. Hope you can help, Thanks, Will
