Re: Bike Insurance.

I'm an insurance broker. Its only a problem if you have a claim ! So when you hit a car / child etc etc then it all goes *beep* up. Dont do it. Insure it with a spanish company (ibex) etc and then you can sleep at night.

Re: Transfer of vehicles at the Trafico Office

At last. Common sense prevails. It sems similar to the Irish / UK system (without ID). Well done you. You should now print up the forms and sell them to people here for €10 each. :D :D :D

Re: Motorbike tax

Slight thread drift here 8) but it appears that the spanish system needs a total review in vehicle registrations. In Ireland (& I think UK) we post the log book to licensing people with a simple form and away we go :roll: . I'm surprised the spanish system has not changed since 1900 :D .

Re: San Pedro tunnell.

So it appears that the best way from the airport to El Paraiso is now AP7 all the way down to Estepona and then back up the A7 to Cancelada exit ? This will avoid the whole area around san pedro. Any locals here care to comment ?

Re: Train from Malaga airport to Estepona ?

El tren discurriría por el interior de esa franja costera y, en grandes cifras, tendría un presupuesto de más de 1.000 millones de euros. Sería de ancho internacional, de doble vía electrificada y con pocas o ninguna parada entre Málaga y Fuengirola, donde se conectaría con la futura línea hasta Es...

Train from Malaga airport to Estepona ?

Can any of you wise residents tell me if the story I heard of the building of a train link from the airport down towards Estepona is true ? Also a time scale ? Thanks.

Re: exchanging plates! shiiiiiiii*

I assume its an E36 model M3 rather than an E30 ? All M3's have been "driven" and cars of that age will not have been well maintained. Has it had inspection 1 or 2 done recently ? Is there a Vanos on that model ? Secondly if its not his property then you are on very sticky ground buying it...
