Re: Car modification and legalities of it.

no really, my meganes ficha only has 14 & 15 on it - and i have 17s - they never fitted anything bigger as standard to a megane. The first year i had them on there they checked them, but they dont even worry now - they probably changed it on their computer.

Re: Water tanks, yes or no?

I wish we had tanks on our roof - they were taken down by the previous owner of my mum & dads house and when the water goes off its a total pita... especially if i needed to get ready for work. On my rental property again, we used to have tanks, but for some reason they were disconected - probab...

Re: Car modification and legalities of it.

As for non standard parts, don't even think about getting a bigger set of wheels and tyres. Sid Sorry Sid, I´ll have to correct you on this one - As long as theres not more than a 3% difference in the overall diameter of the wheels you can run whatever wheel tyre combo you want, as long as the tyre...

Re: Rodents

Its always a good idea to use cinta americana / gaffa tape to put some rat poison inside the engine bay, that way you can drive around and you dont have to worry about stuff falling down. If its "tree rats" - the ones that like almonds and dark spaces, then thats easy enough, but if its mi...

Re: Finding a will . . . . . . . .

Assuming your relative is passed already, and you are filling out the forms for the hacienda, they will tell you if the person has a will. Im pretty sure that you cant randomly check unless you are the person doing it. I had to go to coin to fill out the hacienda forms with a bunch of other paperwor...

Re: Online business

Back when the internet first started :lol: I used to buy "lots" of playstation 1 games in the uk, maybe 50 at a time, have them shipped to spain and then re-sell them here.

I tried selling online but postage from spain is ridiculous :(
