Re: Mercedes Strategy

I have had to delete some posts. If you cannot provide a sensible answer to a perfectly reasonable question - don't respond.

Re: padron

I recently got involved in a car transfer and the buyer was not on the Padron. Trafico in Málaga absolutely refused to do the transfer without a Padron certificate. I understand that in some provinces it may be possible with an escritura and utility bills.

Re: Iphone repairs my opinion.

Why doesn’t he buy a really good case? The latest iPhones are incredibly expensive to repair especially if you smash front and back.

My iPad screen is well over €500.

Re: padron

Presumably the gestor who handles the purchase or transfer gives them your address.

Re: padron

IVTM (car tax) is a local tax and Trafico are not involved at all. If stopped it is one thing they don’t ask to see.

You don't have a choice. How many days do you spend in Spain over a calendar year?

Re: RENEWING MY DRIVING LICENSE

Just go to the nearest test centre. Clinica Rincon Nerja will do it. They will do all the forms and photos and you will get the new licence in about two weeks. Just take your old licence and passport and registration paper/card. Very painless. I have never had a reminder and you don’t need to take i...

Re: IPTV disappearing

Hi Sid Sorry, my terminology was a bit harsh. Should have said inconsiderate people or supplietrs closing them sown. David I think you have lost the plot on this. Closing down a clearly illegal system is hardly inconsiderate to the companies that own the rights to the original content and are losin...

Re: Smarty BBC

I agree, if you can change the routers DNS that is preferable and 90% at least of all routers allow this and it is very easy to do. A VPN is a different thing altogether. Most devices and routers do not allow you to set up a VPN. VPN routers are rare and generally expensive. A VPN rarely offers anyt...

Re: IPTV disappearing

I'm not sure who you are describing as idiots.

Would that be the suppliers, the people closing them down or the users?

Re: Purchasing an Annuity in Spain

Yes the whole monthly payment is taxed but depending on the age you were when income started, you get a huge allowance of up to about 75% of the payment.

Correct Gerry. It’s called “ bumping” and is against forum rules.

Re: Returning faulty Amazon own brand products

Remember that the EU warranty may be 2 years, but for an aoutomatic replacement it is only 6 months. For the final 18 months YOU have to prove that the fault was present at the time you bought it.

Re: Advice on winter rental please

The real problem with the new situation is that passports will be stamped on entry and exit, so it will be really obvious if you have exceeded your stay. Some countries are hotter on this than others. I understand that the Netherlands are particularly hot on this. If you try to leave, having exceede...

Don't think you'd get a really good sound system for a meagre grand. My speakers alone cost almost that... True, but is your hearing up to it? Most people have lost their ability to hear high frequency sounds after the age of 50. Just buying expensive speakers won’t improve that. Fact of life unfor...
