    Hello from Bretagne, France. We just joined the forum today. We have lived in Bretagne for 10 years now. We are about 1 hour west of Rennes and 1 hour east of Lorient, near a very picturesque town called Josselin. Thank you for reading this.

    Hello, I have a problem. I am in France and my key card is somewhere on the ski slopes. Can anyone advise if there is an emergency replacement service. Hoping that as I am in france the outcome may be quicker than if I'm in England? Thank you.

    Does anyone know of good portable battery boosters? I have an RX4 and it's been sitting idle for 2 weeks in France, outside Lyon airport and its very likely the battery will be dead. I could always ask the next best Frenchman with Jump leads, but not sure anyone is going to be around at...

    We currently own 3 renaults, a clio, an express and a traffic mini bus. They are all early 90's models. We want to upgrade the traffic and have seen a master mini bus that we like the look of. Its a 2002, 2.2 dci with 170 k. After doing some research it appears that maybe we should steer clear...

    Hi, I'm driving to France for a week, and need to sort out my headlamps for driving over there. I have looked at the headlamp converters/beam benders, however non of them seem to have suitable instructions for my 2011 Scenic III. They only seem to have them for the previous model. Also as my...

    Hi I have the converters and will need to put them on the headlamps as I go through the Tunnel on Saturday. Trouble is, I have absolutely no idea which part of the headlamp area I put them on, as the casing is totally clear, thus no indication of where to place them. Can anybody help please...

    Hi, This is now my third Renault Espace and I have loved all of them. The second one saved both my wife and myself in a serious shunt so I can testify to how robust they are. I have just acquired a 1995 Espace Alize in burgundy and expect it to last for a while yet. At least parts are easy...

    I'm currently holidaying in the South West of France and the car (2003 Scenic I Phase 2 61k miles) has developed a wobble at 10-20mph, followed by a noise at 30-40mph and vibration at 68mph+. At 60mph the car is perfect. I have a drive to Picardy on Tuesday then to Calais on Saturday. We have...

    I am going with family to France next month. Would it be cheaper & quicker to get a spare key card for my Megane 3?

    Hi all, I would like to get a Laguna Coupe in the next few months but as they are no longer sold over here its becoming hard to find my ideal model. This would be white, diesel, GT with no more than 20000 miles. I have seen on sites like Trovit (France and Germany) low mileage cars in the...
