I hope someone out there can help. I recently advertised a Motorcycle in Anglo Info classifieds and had a reply from Mr David Moffitt with an e-mail address for a reply. Sadly it is not accepting my reply so if anyone can help with a phone number or alternative e-mail it would be greatly appreciated.Many thanks, Alan wright
I need a complete set of new tyres for both our cars. Currently looking at prices online (e.g. www.123pneus.fr) as they are much cheaper than buying from a local tyre garage. They will deliver the tyres to a local tyre fitting station. Current estimates for budget-to-midrange tyres stand at around 1000 euros plus fitting them both cars is close to 180 euros (8 tyres and up to 20inch rims). Anyone know of any alternative solutions, that may be financially beneficial e.g. people transporting them from the UK or perhaps a mechanic with his own tyre fitting/balancing equipment?Thanks in advance for any info.advice.Confolens 16500 area

Does anyone know of a company that can offer insurance to cover old classic vehicles that are not yet registered in France? I have been told by specialist insurance companies that it is not possible to insure them without a carte gris. I only want fire and theft as I won't be using them on the road yet.
Has anyone asked their french insurance company about allowing uk friends to drive your french car? I have and they said that they could and if anything happened they would claim against the drivers ( uk friend's) insurance. I am not confident that that would work as in the uk the car itself is insured for the driver concerned only. Has anyone looked into this already?
Hello,I have a car in the UK that i would like shipped to France, i have several quotes to Portsmouth, but its pricey for the trailers.Is there anyone with contacts with a driving type transporter from Portsmouth over the ferry? I can arrange to pick the car up in Caen or St Malo.Regards
Having just read B-phoenix's post, re. a Merc dealership - and there is the financial consideration of course - it is for this reason and with my own experience with Merc and other dealerships around Europe that I want to know if anyone knows of a retired but active and competent Merc mechanic to do some works on my old (1982) 230CE, Eg. Tuning incl. setting the valves, determining why I now have a whine after replacing everything underneath, fitting a new sunroof cassette (a second hand one actually) and all over an extended period as I am rarely home in France.
A garage wrongly diagnosed a problem on our car and fitted a new part which was not faulty in the first place. We drove the car away, it broke down the same day, we rang the garage back and they refused to collect it saying it was our responsibility to return it to them. We have had confirmation from another garage that the work the original garage carried out was unnecessary and we now know what the actual fault is but they won't touch it because it will invalidate the warranty by the first garage. The original garage is refusing to admit fault or give us our money back. Does anyone know where we stand in law? I'm so angry at their response I'm happy to take this to court.

My partner wants to come over as foot passenger for Christmas on the Plymouth-Roscoff ferry. 20th/21st/22nd or 23rd December and returning on the same route on January 2nd. Is there anyone coming over at this time and could give him a lift down. I live near St Maixent L'Ecole (79) but could pick him up anywhere in the locality. I and my car are getting too old to make the long journey! He would contribute to fuel. Many thanks for any offers.
