  3. Thanks to everyone for their helpful advice. . Following your advice I checked out various possibilities including, 

    http://www.123pneus.fr , offering my size tyres (175/70R14) at €34.70-61.50 delivered but €15-20 each for fitting.


    http://www.andorrapneumatics.com , offer my size tyres (175/70R14) UNIROYAL RAINEXPERT:    58,20 € or MICHELIN ENERGY SAVER:    72,00 €.

     
    http://www.feuvert.fr
    offered (175/70R14) UNIROYAL RAINEXPERT:    44.99 € or MICHELIN ENERGY SAVER:    72,99 € with other tyres in the price range €36-99 

    All in all I thought Fue Vert were the best possibility. However we realized we had a few more weeks to go on the currant tyrpes and then after further discussion with my partner we decided when having the car serviced to get our local garage to also fit the new tyres. We know this wont be the cheapest option but their prices are always reasonable and it keeps them on side if ever need them.

    Thanks as always for your help.

  4. We need to fit four new tyres on our car. Where is the cheapest place to buy tyres? We are heading to Spain in the next few days and wondered would it be cheaper there?

    Thanks for any advice,

    Francis.

  5. Competition Closing Date: 12.00pm GMT 30th September 2010

    Good luck,

  6. I have been asked to do some part time work for

    a French company selling specialist machinery into food manufacturing

    factories here in France. They have asked me to let them know what I

    would charge for my work. I expect to do about two weeks work a month

    from them. I wonder if perhaps anybody could advise me what earnings a

    company sales representative would get per year here in France and what

    other benefits (company car, pension etc.). Any advice you can give me

    would be much appreciated.

    Francie.

    German Shepherd

    Our German Shepherd Kimber moved to France last April without any problem. We registared him with a local vet and went for a check up and his annual jabs back in Sptember. He goes this week again to the vet for his rabies booster. He has settled in very well and seems to like the French way of life very much. He enjoys staying in hotels and the very occasionally visits to a restaurat with us. Having lived in a urban area for seven years of his life he now loves been a country dog.

    Goo luck with your move,

    Francie. 

  15. I am in the process of applying to import my car, and need the cylinder size. After consulting my log book and drivers handbook, I cant seem to find the cylinder size in cm3 (Cylindree). I have a Vauxhall Astra 1.7 Merit Estate diesel. Can anyone give me or guide me to where I can get this information?

    Thanks

  16.  

    I would recommend L'Ayssènol Ayssenes http://www.ayssenol.fr The restaurant is located in the village of Ayssenes near Le Truel sitting above the Tarn river in the Aveyron (12). We visited there with friends last June. It was a great dining experience. We sat in the garden, where many of the produce for the restaurant were growing. That night we were the only diners and were served and cooked for by the owner. On handing us the menu we were asked if we would like to look at the menu or be surprised. We all opted for a surprise and we were surprised and impressed.  I could go on more but best to try it yourself. They do meat options. If you don’t leave nearby or know the area you will be impressed with that as well. The area and the restaurant are definitely worth making part of a trip.

     

    BP where is Le Papillon and what is the name/address of the restaurant in Albi? 

     

    Francie.

     

  17. I am trying to work out if it is worth registering our 1994 Vauxhall Astra 1.7 diesel in France. We would plan to use it as a second car. I have worked out ruff costs for the attestation d'identite, new headlamps and CT test but I am not sure of the registration cost. Can any body advise me how much it would be for our car?

     

    Francie

  18. Does anybody know if there is any organization in Germany that you can use to check over a second hand car you are buying, similar to what the RAC or AA will do in England?

     

     

    Francis.

  19. I am hoping to buy a car in Germany to import to France. I am wonder if any of you have any experience of this and have got any advice of what I will need to do with regards to importing the car? I would also welcome any advice that you can give on German car auctions?

     

    Thanks as always for your advice,

     

    Francis.

  20. Anybody got any suggestion for something special or different to do on New Years Eve in the Aveyron (12). I am thinking of something like a special restaurant or dinner dance.  Anybody with insider knowledge please give us some ideas.

     

    Francie.

  21. A few of mine and I have recently purchase a house just west of St Affrique near Le Truel in the South Aveyron (12).  My friend moved from Sheffield to live down there at Easter with my help. I am spending as much time as possibly down there for now and will move full time at the end of February. As yet we have met no other expats in our area. We would like to get together with others in our area. We are keen foodies and love to entertain at home, visit friends for food or eat out. Otherwise we have wide interests including music (keen concert goers), reading, gardening, movies and travel. We are also keen dog owners and are very proud of our rescue (re-homed) German shepherd dog called Kimber.

    Dog sitting.

    We would like to find somebody who is looking for somebody to do some dog sitting for their female dog (bitch). We live in the south Aveyron (12) west of St Affrique. We have an eight year old German Shepherd dog (male) and want the opportunity to try him for a few days (or 2 weeks) with a female dog. We want to rehome a rescue dog. In general he is afraid of other dogs but in the past we tried him with another male dog and he just got depressed. We do think he will be fine with a female but what to check first because if we rehome a rescue dog it must work. Our dog Kimber is a full dog therefore the female dog would need to be spayed. Please pm if you need some dog sitting done or have any advise or ideas.

    Thanks,

    Francis.
  23. Has anybody got any information on car auctions in the south west of France? I am based in the south Aveyron and would like to find an auction with in three hours drive.  As I am keen to buy an Audi A4 or a Mercedes C220 I have considered trying a car auction in Germany and importing from there to the France. I know this is more than three hours away but I feel I would get a better selection.  Any information or suggestions greatly appreciated as always.
