Funny that,I went to a Breakers some months ago looking for a part for my 75 and there was one in there,which I had a few parts off.

And then again last week went to the local breaker to me and there was a T reg in there which I had the Walnut wheel off along with some other bits and pieces IE Cruise Control,Chrome Door Mirrors, a few relays, Instrument panel Interior dimming mirror And the icing on the cake a Walnut Gear knob along with a new hand brake gaiter.All for the Grand total of.........€15.

This car car had a mint Cream Leather Interior will full electric seats which had it been a Tourer I would have had .The guy said If i took it out I could have it for €25 the lot.

As they say Happy days

I have driven in both France and Germany for over 30 years now. RHD cars all of them. Never had a problem. I just re arrange the passenger side mirror further out so you can see further down the road. No problems overtaking or pulling out, after signalling of course. I took a Metcedes 320 sports over to my son in Germany just before last Christmas, and he registered it over there after changing the headlights on it so it would dip correctly for the continent. It passed all requirements, mot etc and had its German number plate in around4 weeks.

We ship most items abroad within reason.
If you need parts not available abroad, we can either supply or source for you in the UK
and ship abroad at cost.
We can supply both quality used or new.
Prices should be quite competitive at the moment due to the low value of the pound against the euro/dollar so it is a good time to buy
You can either view items in my ebay shop http://stores.ebay.co.uk/SouthDevons...cialist?_rdc=1 or PM me direct.

It is noticable that the few ZT's found for sale are generally in drab colours Grey or Black and I much prefer brighter colours. British Racing Green is a good colour and despite being darker better than Silver IMHO.

How would it be best to go about finding a suitable vehicle in France especially as out French is very limited ....................... something which we need to address and have tried but there seems to be no availability of learnign French locally here and the computer programme bought is frankly not the best .

We could of course re-register the Copperleaf Red Classic CDT but it would remain RHD of course but that is for next year to worry about as we understand it takes a while to purchase property in France and there is the trial period to go through before we make that decision.
Have you booked your trial period holiday in France yet ??---

Not really. I live here and maybe go through a toll booth once every two or three years.

I can drive from half way down France up to the channel on motorways all the way without seeing even one toll both.

There are LOTS of toll free motorways.----------

Or if you do go through lots of toll booths, get one of the transponder gizmos that just charge the toll your account.

The trouble is you can lose track of those ONCE A YEAR things just when you need it most.---
