Well lads, she's up and running!.. Had my first proper drive on the weekend and got the geo done.

Just ironing out a few things today then hoping to wash her later as she is proper dirty!!

Now, just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for cheap euro breakdown cover? Not that she'll falter of course Very Happy , but it could be a wise thing.

Right, off to the garage Thumb

Good man!

Are you an AA member? If so, you could get 2 free days' cover and just pay for the remaining days.
Got mine on that basis with the AA, cost me around £60 for the trip.

Great work on getting the car ready - top job! worship

I took out a "Membership Plus" policy with ADAC in Germany over the phone last week, full Euro cover plus ADAC have partner companies in the rest of Europe, their partner company in the UK is the AA - freephone number in the UK too. It was 84 euros plus 4 euros joining fee. After reading a load of ADAC reviews, it met my requirements (full repatriation of me and the car back to the UK if the worst happens abroad, no age limit on the car and I'm personally covered for any car as driver or passenger) all things considered it seemed like a good deal to me. Cover starts the day after you take the policy out.

Think there are a few numbers listed for taking out the cover over the phone, a few didn't work but the one that worked for me is 00 49 94 15 23 44 not much waiting, only a few adverts in German.

I just asked for an English speaking agent when they answered - whole process was very easy.

Viel Glück! Smile
