Hi , Sam
well , the 5 year old rule its still enforced , but is not what it used to be . I have been there 4 times the last 12 months and ... I could bring in vehicles older than 5 years.
Ammount of "bribes' were
1 ... 50 Euros + a Broken Car Stereo
2... Set of 2 "golden" gift Watches (10 Australian $!)
3... 75 Euros (as I was in a hurry and I didnt even try to discuss the price)
4 ... 15 Euros + 2 cheapo Halfords's headlamps (20 Quid ?)
Trick is of course " I don't have any money , only credit cars , blah blah blah , I only have *THIS* ammount (15 Euros ?) to get to SanLuis , blah blah blah
where I can get money again , but now .. this is all that I got ( showing your nearly empty wallet , helps a lot )
and that is. More often than not , they let you in by a small "tocken" and the money . In my experience , broken / old radio stereos work like a charm.
yep , yep , I know we shouldnt encourage bribbery , but -having said that - I feel better paying 50Euros plus a shitty stereo to a poor man than 250 quid to the RAC.
Have a nice day.
