:lol: It's the "should have been" part that concerns me, and that not one of us cruel badstarts caring, sharing folk on here said anything to you about alternators or registering the car in that France.

Old threads, good, aren't they.. :mrgreen:

update on mr 2....
2 years ago i sold it to a french chap, who was very keen on the old bus.. i told him to register he needed to get the main testing centre to pass it & also tested by the utac.. 4 tests at €500 each...
last week an english chap rings me up asking all sorts of questions about it & wanting me to give him a bill of sale for proof of ownership.. its still in my name with dvla although they have been notified its been exported.. now need to dig out any remaining paperwork for the car so i can fill in a form.. the froggies do love paperwork :lol:
