Re: Do banks require to see passport and NIE?

This was my experience. I received a request from my bank in October asking for copies of my id be sent to them via e-mail in order to identify myself under Ley 10/2010, de 28 de abril, de prevención del blanqueo de capitales y de la financiación del terrorismo.

Re: Pain killers for dogs ?

Please be very careful with rimadyl, many vets will prescribe this for pain relief and in most cases there will be no adverse effects. However it should never be given without a blood test first to see if the dog has any impaired liver function or kidney disease, otherwise rimadyl could lead to seri...

Re: Live Champions League

If you can wait a couple of hours and avoid hearing the result, the full game is scheduled to start on the Teledeporte channel at 22:40 which should be available through your regular Spanish TV aerial.

Otherwise it's a trip to the bar to see it live on C+ Liga campeones

Re: Buying a Used Car

Just to muddy the waters. In the past 8 yrs I have bought 2 used cars from 2 different dealers and all that was needed was my NIE number, a copy of my passport for ID and proof of address in the form of a utility bill in my name. No mention was made of a padron certificate. Both purchases were also ...

Spanish driving school vehicles display a blue plate with a white L and the word ‘Practicas’. After drivers pass the test they have to display a new driver plate, which is green with a white L. I'm sure that I have seen in the past driving school cars with a P "practicas" plate, perhaps th...

Re: alternative for buying bottled water

Around every two weeks we make the short trip to our local "fuente" and fill a dozen or so 5l bottles with pure limestone filtered water for our drinking/cooking needs. It tastes far better than the chemical treated stuff that comes out of the tap and also does away with the need to de-sca...
