Re: Praise for good customer service.

Well done Eroski, about time they got their act together. Carrefour are a nightmare if you try and get a refund.

Re: Rematriculating a Previously ES-plated Car

I am 100% sure its illegal to drive a foreign registered car on a Spanish licence/ Spanish resident. You may want to look at car transport companies to get it to Benalmadena.

Re: ITV questions

Without trying to sound smart Sid stop start only works above a certain temperature. I guess it is over 11 degrees in your village so it may have packed up but I had it on a Mercedes and took it into the garage and they told me it won’t work because its winter and freezing.

Re: Rematriculating a Previously ES-plated Car

I cant see a way of bypassing the system if the car is in the UK. The Spanish will need the car to legal to change the plates and if its on UK plates and in the uk no way can you get an ITV. I would continue with your residency and if you cant get the car here until June there will not be much duty ...

Re: Locksmith

I called out the guy from Rincon one night at 22.00. Quote over phone of 120E to get us in our property. He realised that i had left a key on the inside lock and produced a flexi disc, slid in recess and opened the door in 30 seconds. Bill still 120, tried to negotiate but no chance. Your in, PAY

Most modern cars dont have a spare wheel. The pump and tyre sealant are optional.

Re: Buying a van to move furniture to Spain

And unlike the old days where it was hard to locate good quality furniture unless you were in Marbella the majority of big towns have a descent shop. We really struggled to buy quality bedroom furniture 18 years ago. It was El Corte Ingles and they really knew how to charge.

Re: Firestick advice

I dont like your attitude. You speak to people like idiots. I know i haven’t got a VPN. I get Sky and netflix in Spain and am happy with that. I have another way of getting my freeview.

Re: Firestick advice

We have a fire stick in the uk with everything on all watchable obviously. When in Spain BBC and all the uk based apps recognise that we are in Spain and will not play. Only able to watch Netflix from UK and sky sports. What I am saying is do not set it up from the uk if living in Spain..

Re: Buying a van to move furniture to Spain

It will only be legal for 6 months and with a van there is no option to transfer it to Spanish plates. Small market and small legal window.
