Registering UK Bongo onto Spanish plates.

Post by Boyzee747 » Sun Dec 20, 2020 4:22 pm

I seem to remember I read somewhere a certain headlight could be used, a Seat I think, to do the minimal alteration to the grill, to be able to re-register our Bongo in Spain as no headlights were ever made to be able to drive permanently on the Continent. Using temporary deflectors are not acceptable in Spain. Can anyone shed any light on which model of Seat or any alternative that you may have used?

I think there was also another thread either here or on FB, which came to the conclusion that getting clearance in number of countries was now impossible due to the sliding door being on the wrong side, France never allowed it and other EU countries are now also taking the same line.
