With a little help from my friends...

Hi all,

I wanted to ask a little help from the uk residents.
As I am planning to do the change of my front bumper, I wanted to buy one from the bay in the uk.
Unfortunetly, they are asking a big amount in order to send it here in France!
Could someone kindly help me out by resending it in France in a more cheaper way? (Ex.Royal Post)

Looking forward for your responce!

Bonne route!

Might be able to help by bringing it across as I visit the Vendee about 6 times a year. Would that be any good or are you in a hurry?

My next trip will be around 10th of April. EDF are pullind my electrics apart and I need to be there.
I've not finalised ferries just yet.
Question. Will the bumper fit in the Freelander?

Hi,

April will be good, sun will be out and will allow me to do it then.
Well, I guess that it will fit, but of course we should ask people in the forum?

Pullind you electricity?

Peace out!

The front bumper should have a lot of free space in the Freelander. I carried my new bumper in my Ford Focus, so that should not be a problem for the Freely. Thumbs Up

Don't worry about the front bumper fitting into a Freely.

I delivered one a year or two ago and there was loads of space!

You might want to use tie-downs to stop the bumper slipping and sliding all over the place.

Hi, as soon as I finalise my ferry I will let you know, it will be done in the next 7-10 days.
My postcode in France is 85320 if you want an idea of how far it is from you.

Ok, that is near la Roche sur Yon...
We can maybe meet half way? Like Rouen or Le Mans?

Just keep me inform and PM me your add so I can order it on the bay.

Thanks again!
