    Hi everyone, I'm spending the summer touring Europe and have seen that I'll need Green zone stickers. From what I can tell though there is a different one in each country? Can you get them in shops outside the green zones or should I get them delivered before I leave? I don't really want to...

I wanted to cumulate necessary information on here to make sure that...

    I'm planning a year-long road trip around europe for my sabbatical and wondering who the best people are to call about insurance?

    We're about to set off for 3 months around Europe in our T4 camper. We're planning on staying out in the country mostly as we're big into hiking but will probably be visiting cities at least once a week or so, using out of town campsites. The wife reckons that bikes would be useful so we can...

    I have moved to Sweden and taken my 2012 T5 with me. To register it over here I need to make some changes to the lights. The change I'd like advice on is how to 'move' the rear fog light from the right-side to the left-side. Someone in a garage suggested to me that often the parts are already in...
