To receive in France not so hard, I bought a silverado used certified to Chevrolet dealer , find a forwarder, (easy with the web !). But the difficulties are to approve by French authority of transport. This vehicle is not imported OFFICIALY in Europe, I have to make many officials tests and controls for brakes, radio electric, noise, emission, safety etc... French bureaucracy ! :D :D


But it was all worth it! :fume:


:D Yes, it is so pleasant to drive it :D

Radio electric, yes for electricity parasitic , remote and the satellite radio xm and onestar (which do not work in Europe :fume: but they tested them)
add a rear red fog light, separation between rear brake lights and rear turn lights, modify color of all turn lights in "orange" (European standard) , and I have a good luck my tires was rated E and the control thought that it was "E" for Europe :lol: :lol: , for e-marked lights and glass they control if it exist in European standards, as not they control the shape and make a infringement.

Yea, just great to have all these regulations! Only that in here 2500-series truck must be registered as "heavy vehicle" and therefore get a speed limiter! Max. speed 80 km/h :D (got 2500 instead of 1500 because insurance, taxes etc. are cheaper).

Nice truck you have :thumbs:

Thanks, it WAS a very nice truck, but I sold it last month , I order a 2008 lariat diesel F450 to carry my camper with more load capacity, the 2008 3500 GM duramax ltz was too expensive for me , very sad .... But I will see the Ford, other expérience....
Here it same thing than you : 2500 is heavy vehicle up to 3500kg with speed limit and technical control each year :D !! With the f450 (or a 2500) I need a license driver C.
