  1. Many TVs, own brand and major brand are produced in Turkey by Vestel. Check to see where it was made and if Turkey it will be made by Vestel. How to check if your TV is made by Vestel
  2. There are some Gatso cameras that can be set up to differentiate between trucks and cars based on the strength of the reflected signal from the larger vehicle's cross sectional area. Perhaps this is the reason although it does need manual reading of the image to ensure that the correct designation is applied. France has already introduced a dual hi/lo camera unit to differentiate trucks from smaller vehicles. radars discriminant
  3. 130kph (81mph) is legal when towing some outfits in France on the autoroute. Isn't it an EU requirement to cover the maximum permitted speed in any EU country and currently only France has such a limit?
  4. It's nothing to do with whether it's in date or not it's always been the case of how long it remains valid during a trip abroad. EU passport/ID card holders have become accustomed to travelling within the EU where there is no restriction on EU passport validity but this will no longer apply to UK passports if the UK leaves the EU.
  5. French satellite TV requires a Fransat or TNTsat receiver with card slot. You can get French terrestrial TV (TNT) on a UK TV set via an aerial though.
  6. You are more likely to get the information that you need on this forum Hobby Owners Club
  7. What on earth is the point of an English language version brochure? It cannot be towed by a conventional car or SUV in the UK so the market will be virtually non-existent here. Make a comfortable permanent installation though.
  8. Here is a Bürstner with end bathroom. See 2m30s I had an earlier model than the one in the link with an even larger end bathroom/dressing room/wardrobe.
  9. More likely to find kilopascal on a tyre pressure gauge. Bar, psi and (kilo)pascal on all four of my gauges. My car's door placard indicates the tyre pressures in kpal and bar only.
  10. 'Eco' efficient tyre pressures are usually higher then normal to reduce friction and improve fuel efficiency.. How can it run at a lower pressure when that is set by the caravan manufacturer and will (should) be the same for all four on a t/a?
  11. How do so many commercial vehicles get away with additional forward facing lights in blue, red or green?
  12. A Tesco supermarket with Esso fuel? Tesco have a number of Esso fiorecourts with a Tesco express shop where Clubcard points can still be obtained but not from Esso filling stations. From 1 June 2019, you'll no longer be able to earn Clubcard points at Esso branded stations where no Tesco Express is present.
  13. Still in common use in France, mainly for the boulangeries. The "fermature hebdomadaire" - weekly closing, as it used to be in the UK in times past. In my local town it was Wednesday afternoon. BTW Marchie, an excellent post on Sunday at 18.46. Thank you. Why won't this forum number posts and why is it so ***** slow? It can take 10 seconds to load a thread.
  14. The dipped beam for a right hand drive car will not meet the requirements for a left hand drive car. Whilst modern headlamps may have a flat topped dipped beam they still will not meet the requirements of EU countries that drive on the right. If a UK vehicle is imported into the EU the first things that needs changing to pass the appropriate test are the headlamps. Legislation in France (and, no doubt, in most of the EU) requires that dipped beams dip to the right and do not dazzle other motorists so a French vehicle with maladjusted dipped beam lamps could cause dazzle. As this is a subjective opinion unless a police officer considers a vehicle is causing dazzle to other motorists no offence is committed. Could this be the reason that such offences have not been reported on UK forums? They are available at French ports with ferries to the UK and at Eurotunnel. They are not likely to be on sale anywhere else for obvious reasons!
