  1. George i live in Ubon and was planning to have a drive up to Thai French meat in Sakon Nakhon, regarding this Nong Song Meats you mention can you give a link to the company and location. Also regarding quality beef is this about the only two locations to purchase direct in the Issan area ?
  2. I used Dulux weather shield hydro fresh, house was painted on 2010 and the finish as of now is still nice. Its good kit but you need to prep real good before you use the weather shield. You will need two coats so for some its expensive paint but its a premium product.
  3. Joe all is clear, i got them to add a single re-entry yesterday. When the 1 year is complete, is the 2nd application exactly the same as the first apart from the 800k has to be in the book for 3 months ?
  4. Just obtained my one year extension today and all went to plan, can someone let me know the following. 1. The TM6 is still attached to my passport, does this mean i need to depart Thailand before it is removed ? 2. They attached a notification informing me i must report back to the office on the 11th June, what's the + or - on reporting on the given date. 3. If i depart Thailand before the report date do i need to let them know, or just report back to the office when i return.
  5. Aye Pdaz you know about the canny Jocks, this is the economy package, its a bit like a CLA & AMG
  6. Was your service performed at a Ford dealership ?
  7. You mention the following every time the car went in for periodic paid service, it "developed" a new mechanical problem within a couple of weeks......which needed paid attention. Are you stating that the BMW service center performed some work to make the car have a mechanical issue ? Can you elaborate on the actual issues that you observed ?
  8. My car is actually not a requirement and more of a toy, but i use my 2010 Pajero when the going gets tough on the road to the farm and the rainy season. Its a 2010 320D model and due to the depreciation i will keep it. The joys of having a toy and a workhorse. Not one of them has ever had a problem, due to the fact they are maintained at a very high standard.
  9. Dilligad is asking about the tyre profile not the pressures. I am not going to even mention tyre pressures as it will end up in a battle same as the motoring forum. FYI the pressure on the rear is higher than the front as per the factory spec. On December 2016 i had 4 new tyres fitted to my SUV by Tyre Plus cost was 20k Baht

  11. My car has a staggered wheel set up, it comes like this as standard. The rims are all 18in but they are different widths front and rear. These rear tyres are the first set of PS4 in Thailand and just arrived from Europe. I just removed the original Run Flats and now its a big improvement.
  12. I only use Michelin Tyres, ask if he can find these that i had fitted to my car today on his inventory at 5k each for front and 8k each for the rear.
  13. If any members are living in the Ubon area and need to communicate in English i can recommend Tyre Plus at the following location https://www.en.tyreplus.co.th/tyre-fitment/34/ubon-ratchathani/8705 The owner Mr Frank can speak English and will get you sorted out. I recently had new tyres fitted to my Pajero and tomorrow i will head there and get the car done also. If you have hard to find tyres that need to be ordered as i had to do for the car, he will source for you even if outside Thailand.
  14. George i have lived in Ubon for 21 years and was using NON O for the last 15 years, this is not my first Rodeo in a government office but after i get the first one done i will hopefully know the plan of attack for the second application. As you will have learned they change the requirements on a hourly basis. I obtained my yellow book 9 years ago and the whole process was simple.
  15. Joe thanks for the info, i tried to get my wife to ask some questions but the lady told her just to listen and not talk.
