Continuing the discussion from Help required with shed application:
I am convinced John is 100% right and I am beginning to wish I hadn’t gone to the Mairie.
To reinforce John’s point, because we used to flit back and forth to the UK I decided to import a right hand drive Honda CR-V. One of the deciding factors was that the headlights would not need replacing at just over one thousand Euro’s each.
Presented the car for CT to be told that it could not be passed without the headlights being replaced.
I produced the cars manual stating that the headlights adhered to the European rules all to no avail.
After much deliberation the guy said that if I returned tomorrow with the stick on deflectors he would fit those and issue the CT.
I duly presented the car and was told to return in half an hour.
I collected the car with it’s lovely green sticker on the screen and the UNOPENED pack of deflectors on the front passenger seat.
No loss of face, no admission of error or responsibility and we all went our way quite happy.
I have just got to lose this Brit abroad attitude of trying to do everything by the book. A lot less hassle
