Re: Blue number plates

I wondered if that was the case. But, as I said, also seen blue plates on cars that don't look like taxis. I thought they might be private hire cars but didn't have a SP plate. Cheers Gerry I have seen some blacked out Mercedes with blue rear plates which would usually have SP on them but now have ...

Re: Purchasing second hand car from private owner

1st thing is to make sure he has clean title and the car is embargo free. Make sure all taxes and fines are paid.

Re: bike import

Puch, blast from the past. A friend had a Puch Maxi in the late 70s. My Vauxhall 101 was quicker in 1st gear than his bike and I had leather seats.

Re: Looking to move to Benomacarra

Most of those villages have 1 or 2 buses a day to the nearest big town, yours being Velez. Taxi would be about 8 euros I think.

Re: Driving in sandals.

You hear lots of stories about the police stopping people coming from the beach. I don’t know anyone who has been fined for driving in flip flops but to be honest they are quite dangerous to drive in. I was stopped for not wearing a seat belt, I was fined for that but they never mention the sandals ...

But not if the Guardia are behind you. They never need much of an excuse to fine you a €100.

Re: Looking for a holiday home around Competa, Sedella and Salares

The road between Maro and La Herradura has some serious bikers on it. Knee on the ground. Some think they are Rossi. I bet there are a good few accidents on that bit of road. I used to love the road before the motorway was built, stunning views out to sea.

Re: bike import

Surely this is the same problem that I am having with a car, thought of buying a UK-plated one and driving it to UK? Firstly as I am a spanish resident I cannot drive a UK car in Spain (with some odd exceptions, but certainly not with it registered in my name), secondly as a resident you cannot rid...

Re: bike import

You can only insure in the country that the car or bike is registered in under EU law. If you transport and do not ride it to the ITV station I guess you could skip the UK insurance. I personally would insure it in the UK and reregister onto Spanish at your leisure. At least you can use it on UK pla...
