    European Insurance

    Apologies as I've already touched on this previously. I'm looking to get FULL European cover insurance and finding it difficult to get a quote. At the tender age of 25 I waited to get full cover by ducking and diving cancelling policies after the 180 days European cover finished. Only now...

    AA European Recovery

    Thought I'd write a little review, and maybe update as we go.... Friday, the day before we left for home from Southern France our car went into Limp Home mode once. Would not do it again, and nothing obviously wrong, we put this down to Landrover gremlins and the extreme heat. Left for Le...

    Hi all, I'm going over to France for a couple of weeks on Friday. Usually I would buy a set of headlight deflectors to use on halogen bulbs. Are LEDs any different? I know some xenon sets you can adjust for continental travel - is there such a feature on the most recent C class? Thanks...

    European tour 2015

    Greetings, Citizens. Back in 2011 the wife and I took a bit of a tour around Europe in the little Fiat Barchetta we had at the time. True, I had the SLK too but being of the opinion that I love a challenge, I chose a 17 year old Fiat over a 5 year old Mercedes. Anyway, we had a lovely...
