    Spare bulbs in France

    We're off on our annual pilgrimage in a couple of weeks and, going through my checklist, I was reminded that it is compulsory to carry a spare bulb kit at all times. My W212 has LEDs everywhere including the ILS set up at the front, so a "universal" spare bulb kit wouldn't contain any bulbs...

    Driving in France: Mobilo or Mercedes-Benz Service24h cover

    This evening I called Mobilo to check that our car is covered by Mobilo or Mercedes-Benz Service24h whilst travelling in Europe. The lady I spoke to said two things that concerned me, and I've not found anything useful on either MercedesMe portal or the Mercedes website which reassures me...

    Hold ups on A16 France.

    Was told of long delays on A16 before entering Belgium, today. Roadworks on A16 but police redirecting traffic off A16 for vehicle/passport checks. I'm off tomorrow to Germany, so will use the coast road via Bray Dunes to Adinkerke & hopefully avoid the jams.

    Linguatronic - how does it cope in France?

    I'm thinking of ordering Linguatronic for my car. However, as I live in France, I am wondering how it would cope with French addresses and towns? For example, if I wanted to go to Nice, would I have to pronounce the town name as in "nice guy" to get it to work? Or will it understand if I...
