Hospital Comarcal - good? Or go Private?

My partner has to have a small procedure to have a growth cut out just above his eye at the Hospital Comarcal in Velez/Torre del Mar. I have heard various tales about things not being so great at this hospital, and since the appointment was made it has got larger, so we are considering going Private...

Identifying a driver online and paying fine

A friend of mine has today received a speeding fine and has tried to go online to identify himself as per the DGT instructions (the only information that appeared to be required on the paperwork was to identify the driver, presumably from the Points on a licence angle). After a nightmare online he m...

Cars over certain age - exempt?

Just curious. With regard to the transfer taxes that are paid when buying a car (that you pay at the bank using form Modelo 621/2 etc), are there any exemptions, for example if the car is over 25 years old? Thanks.

Re: Radio Code Ford Ka

Thanks people. We bit the bullet and went to Ford who charged us 5 euros and gave us the code - I think whichever Ford dealership the old owners took the car to, took them for a ride by not only charging 15 euros but then not actually giving them the code. We now have the code! Relief!

Radio Code Ford Ka

Folks, we just bought a second hand Ford Ka off some people who have returned to the UK permanently through ill health. There were no manuals etc with the car, and we had to disconnect the battery today after experiencing a flat battery. Before buying the car I asked the previous owners about the ra...

Re: ITV scooter pass with flat battery?

I didn't want to risk it without a new battery so I changed it - the horn sounded pathetic and would have failed. For info - in my neck of the woods in Torrox, a new battery for the average scooter (Yamaha Noes 100) is 25 euros - don't get ripped off!!!! I've paid over 50 previously.

ITV scooter pass with flat battery?

I have an ITV appointment tomorrow for my Yamaha Neos 100 scooter which will start with a kick but which does not have enough power to work the electric start. Can anybody tell me if that alone is an automatic fail? Thanks.

Re: Alhambra Palace - advance tickets sales only?

Thank you all for your replies. Well I managed to get the three tickets I wanted through Ticketmaster after other sites had suggested none were available, and collected them from La Caixa bank. :thumbup:

Re: Alhambra Palace - advance tickets sales only?

Thanks you for your replies - after feeling that I had let my family down I did a lot of digging on the net and found some tickets available in two days time through 'ticketmaster' - I guess that companies such as this must block book tickets?? Anyhoo, I'm hopeful now that we will gain access. Thank...

Alhambra Palace - advance tickets sales only?

My sister from Australia is here visiting and wants to go but I have left it very late to book advanced tickets online. All slots are sold. Previously it was my belief that on arrival there, there were ticket sales available on the day for people who had not booked in advance. As it is unclear from ...

Casa Rural - rules

My partner and I are thinking of running our home/spare room as a Casa Rural. Does anybody know about the rules and regulations that apply, or where I might find them? Thanks.

Ouch - that's a big job. Thank you for your input. I am beginning to think a serious overhaul of the pool may be necessary.

Black pool algae & cal on pool floor

Two different problems in two different pools. Can anybody shed any light? A neighbours pool has some nasty black algae on the side walls of their pool - no amount of scrubbing appears to dislodge it and a high chlorine level has no effect. I also bought some rediculously expensive 'Algae Killer' - ...

UK import - 4x4

In the back of my mind I think I am right in thinking that you can no longer import UK commercial vehcicles such as vans etc. With that in mind, I just want to confirm if importing a UK RHD 4x4 is a problem or if it's still possible to do so. Thanks.
