    Angry HELP - European Certificate of Conformance - registering a Cadillac BLS in France

    Help! Has anyone tried registering a Cadillac in France? I've recently moved to live here and in order to register my car i need a Certificate of Conformance. I've finally tracked down a place in the Netherlands that can issue one to me for a charge 160euros. This seems exorbitant for what is just a piece of paper. Can anyone advise me on this matter. I've been very satisfied with Cadillacs up until now but i fear after this episode that I'll not be buying them again.

    Anyone able to comment/help?

    regards

    Hmm,

    doesn't this paper have to delivered with the car?

    I have one but there is my VIN on it. I had it also for the previos car (BMW).
    This is required by / from the EU (i think).

    Maybe your dealer still has it and it was forgotten?


    Regards

    They were supplied new when you bought a car new from Stratstones in the UK, And yes you may have to pay that high price for a new. But why would you not buy a Cadillac again? Seems a strange thing to say every car you take to frnace would have to havethe same thing done! It's not Cadillac's fault you don't have one, I take it you never bought the car new otherwise you would have it from Stratstones. Seems odd to blaim Cadillac. Just pay the money and stop moaning.

    Thank you vetguru.
    FYI The COC is not required to register a car in the UK - it's a different system. I didn't buy the car new from Stratstones. Also, I had no trouble getting a COC for my Hondas in France for free. I guess those are the the reasons I feel like 'moaning' about the disappointing Cadillac European customer service.
    Happy days!
