  1. I have a 2012 Pajero Sport, 2.5 L diesel. While it is not a sedan, it handles well and is very comfortable. I would think that you will only find diesels in SUV and trucks here unless you go to a high end sedan like a Mercedes.
  2. Can you refuse DHL delivery ?

    I could not disagree more strenuously...
  3. Can you refuse DHL delivery ?

    I worked 20 years in the air freight industry. You are certainly welcome to refuse the shipment. If the package is coming from the vendor you bought from and not an intermediary 3rd party (like a package shipped to a relative first and forwarded to you), you will likely stand liable for freight in both directions AND any duty & tax levied by the Thai Customs department. If it is coming from a third party, you can refuse it, it will be returned and the 3rd party sending it will stand liable for freight charges. My suggestion is bite the bullet and accept charges. My wife and I are currently in the US on vacation. We sent some COACH brand bags as gifts for family. Thai Customs wanted to assess duty and tax on the full retail. When we produced documents from the store showing actual price paid, duty dropped to just under B600.00. Keep those invoices...they can become your best friend.
  4. Are you married!

    I am guessing he has not changed over to a Non-O Marriage extension of visa and is using a straight Non-O that requires a border crossing every 90 days.
  5. And they will set up in the street...
  6. The only way that will ever occur is to confiscate the scooters for several days with a hefty fine.
  7. There's always an exception. I know a thai man who would give up a month's salary for a Russian woman. For me, I have had a thing for Asian women ever since I first saw Nancy Kwan in The World of Suzie Wong. Some call it "yellow Fever." I came to Thailand the first time 46 years ago this month. I've lived here the last 12 years. Something brought me back and it wasn't elephant treks. The eyes and the smiles get me first.
  8. Renewal of 5 year driver licenses

    I will be gone for four months, returning in September. I will give it a shot in another week or so. Thanks much!
  9. Renewal of 5 year driver licenses

    I'll be gone for 4 months...I appreciate the info and any updates.
  10. I am hoping someone can give me a definite answer, how far ahead of expiration can I renew my 5 year driver licenses? I have been told up to 6 months ahead but got a totally different story when I hit the LTO at Soi 62 in Bangkok. I am headed stateside soon and need to get this done before I leave or be in a crunch when I return. Thanks in advance,
  11. Lick your wounds dry your tears and go find another place to live...if you can. Methinks you may have just screwed yourself on living anywhere in CNX...
  12. The main problem is lack of proper driver training. Any idiot can handle a wheel but it takes training, patience and common sense to be a professional driver. The anything for a dollar mentality has to be replaced with a decent wage for trained drivers. Being paid per run is a prescription for disaster. Drivers must be mandated to follow certain strict DOT transport driver guidelines. Now, do you want to know why this will never happen? TiT - and status quo will remain until the public screams for change. the public won't scream for change either because TiT and Mai pen lai is the order of the day. So the carnage continues....
  13. Seems to me 1555 is Tourist Police. We can report but how will they respond unless we have a way to photograph and send pics. I am guessing it's too much trouble for the BiB to get off their collective arse and do their job?
  14. New personal details form arrives at Phuket Immigration

    Certainly not being done in BKK. I just renewed my visa, re-entry permit and 90 days. The only additional form I had to submit was an offical request to move my visa from my old passport to my new one.
