Hi Just starting the process of registering my UK car to France and wondered if anyone has used this company to obtain the certificate of conformity?

http://www.eurococ.eu/en/home.php

My car is a Vauxhall Cavalier, has anyone done one of these, and is there any tips about where i can get new lights, this is all new to me and i'm finding it quite daunting to be honest so any help would be appreciated. Thanks

We brought a Vectra over. Contacted Vauxhall in the UK and they sent a C of C quickly and free. I started the enquiry with our UK dealer, but don't recall whether they handled it themselves or passed me onto higher forces!

I've imported both a Volkswagen, and latterly a Mazda, in both instances the manufacturer provided the C of C for around £ 65.

I suggest you contact Vauxhall direct

Second that. Hyundai UK supplied ours free, in 2 days - which makes EuroCoc's 179 euros and 21 days, frankly, outrageous ...

Good Luck!

For headlamps make sure you know the equivalent Opel model then any of the spares places on the centrel commercial such as like Feur verte, Nor Auto etc. Or trip round the local Caise Auto.

Got the headlights for my Cavalier from a scrapyard, came out of an Opel Vectra.
