Please do let us know how you get on. Re the ADAC carnet - I was under the impression they'd stopped issuing them to non-German residents in non-German registered vehicles.
I posted on this yesterday, but then the post got deleted when the HUBB was upgraded. Apologies if it looks like I am seeking to hijack this thread, but I think the issue of whether or not non-German residents can get ADAC Carnet, and whether or not it applies to non-German registered vehicles is worth clarifying for many, many people.
MJ's links don't work, but try this one from the ADAC website today:-
This is pretty much identical to the one I filled out in Feb 07, when I applied for a German carnet on a UK-registered vehicle. I had the use of a German address to do it from, but the only difference this made was that I could go to the local ADAC branch in Hannover where I was staying and do it in person. I was told categorically at the time I could still have applied even if I had done so from the UK, by post to the Munich HQ.
Nowhere on this application form does it say the Carnet is not available to non-German residents in non-German registered vehicles. If this is true, it is great news for a lot of overlanders.
Am I reading it right?
