Hi Victorious, how did you get on, as I think I'll have to go to the DREAL with my usa BMW.

It is on the other side of the Var, ie from Route de Grenoble or Digne, you need to cross the Var thru the Pont de la Manda (after Carrefour and 1st bridge to cross the Var), then follow the Zone Industrielle in Carros, the DREAL is the last place - quite a distance - on that road. I would check the opening hours if I were you as you might need an apointment with them beforehand.
Hope this helps,
Good luck,
N.

Thank you all. But can anyone give me directions. I see its on Route de Grenoble. But 64/66 does not come up on GPS. Where abouts is the location?

Carros.

If your vehicle as a original EU vehicle all you need is a Certificate of European conformity from the manufacturer, the only time you need to face these guys (and it will be a long hard battle) is if your vehicle is not a Euro model.

Really? Strange! As Ford is the one that wrote me a letter stating I needed to go to DRIRE....

Any idea where it is?

I wouldn't bother, they tell you they don't deal with that anymore and you have to get the certificate from the car manufacturer, did in my case anyway.
