  1. Can someone please advise where l can get a good traditional (western) roast pork meal with veggies and roast potatoes? l am in Pathum Thani but am happy to try reasonably priced places (preferably not in a hotel) in Bangkok, or Nonthaburi, as well as Pathum Thani etc. Any suggestions would be gratefully received. l have had no luck in the western food forum
  2. l will try that. Thanks
  3. Thats sounds like the height of efficiency compared to the service center l use
  4. Nakhon Nayok is the answer

  6. I am not telling anyone what to do as you can clearly see from my post which was about what l will do.
  7. If Thaivisa are going to quote "news" from an extremist website l will block thaivisa on twitter and facebook.
  8. After all the negative stuff l hear about immigrationits always stressful doing the annual extension. Yesterday l arrived at Pathum Thani immigration at 1pm for my nth extension and was out the door at 2.10pm, despite the additional forms they wanted conpleted and a fairly busy office. My paperwork was checked very thoroughly but the staff were friendly and helpful. My experience isnt new and l have rarely had any problems with the staff at the three different offices l have used over the years. Have the required paperwork, manage a small chat and a smile with a little patience. It amazes me how the staff can cope with their work load and stay so cool and polite. I would add that my yellow house book was not accepted but l had the householder with me, along with his docs. l was also given the foreigners information form which was about 2/3rds of an A4 page long.
  9. You can top up your easypass at the cash tollgate. No need togo to the office
  10. There are lots of places with nitrogen pumps that give free topups after the initial change from air. ACT is one of many.
  11. Its not just the price. Customer service is important. My first, and only Ford ever, is ok but our experience with lying salesmen and incompetent lazy service staff has us on the point of selling our almost new car, despite the loss we will make. Never again.
  12. I can't speak for Chonburi but my car had minor damage repairs done at Ford in Pathumthani. Took a bit over two weeks but we had to wait more than a month before they could fit us in. And the results were appalling, very shody repairs by the main Ford repair shop for Bangkok area. We are now waiting for the forth visit to fix their mess. Our understanding is that apart from the massive lack of Ford service centers, there is little or no training by Ford concessionaires, and virtually no supervision by management. To add insult to injury a plastic fitment under the front number has just fallen off. The car is 9 months old.
  13. Re the Ford Fiesta fiasco.I understand the owners of the problem cars have babanded together to make a formal complaint to the Consumer Protection Department after getting short shift from Ford.
