    It sounds like it may be easier to buy a camper out there :thumb: they do some nice small conversions - not sure if it would fit big yanks in them :Rofl1:

    Spain is old hat ..

    it's full of Brits in camper vans, cafe's selling all day English breakfasts, Irish Pubs and fish and chip shops. :Sad:

    Maybe I should have added a smiley to my original comment... :Wink:

    £750+ for the inspection...ouch.
    I won't pretend that I can understand the Japanese Fiat website, but I don't think it would be wise taking a model that they don't sell, with an engine they don't have in any of the vehicles they sell, running on diesel when they only apparently sell petrol vehicles.

    Hang on....that's clinched it....my AA breakdown recovery doesn't cover the far east :RollEyes:
