I have no idea, but maybe you can tell me what this sign means - I saw it as we were on the motorway about to go round Antwerp (stuck in a big traffic jam :cry: )

Hi Sébastien, nice motor, beautiful scenery!

To be honest, we're not really sure - the usual problem is the fronts of the cars are loads different, it looks like it should be possible but it might end up being a nightmare of changing part after part and ending up wishing you'd never bothered. Same goes for the back end, you could compare the two and see if the panels line up and the fixings are more or less in the right place but you won't know for sure until you try.

I reckon if I was still in the UK and had access to breaker's yards and ebay I'd have given making a D8 look like a D9 a shot by now but, what with badly damaged cars costing more than immaculate ones in the UK here and the serious lack of second hand parts, I don't think it's gonna happen :(

Oh yeah, the D8 and D9 have different light clusters, although I don't know if the dimensions are different (I expect they are, just to be awkward)

Best Practise i always find, Compare part numbers at dealers, in this case im unsure if it will work as the side indicators are different on Phase 2 to Phase 1 so perhapse not a good idea but for future reference a definate go-er.

It means - No driving of cars on fire allowed in the tunnel, of course. :roll: :shock: :oops: :lol:









Sorry, couldn't resist.

It actually means - No hazardous loads allowed on this road/in the tunnel, (it's usually seen just before a tunnel).
I know 'cause I drive a truck around Europe for a living.

This is a very old style of sign, which I've only seen in Belgium, recently.
Elsewhere you see a truck silhouette with an orange square inside it, in the usual prohibition sign.
The orange square is a representation of the orange board, which vehicles carrying a hazardous load have to display.

THANK YOU!!!! That's been bugging me ever since I saw it :) IIRC it was on approach to merging with an orbital motorway around Antwerp, along the south side of the city heading East. I think there was a bend right, then the merge, then the bend left and a tunnel.

I love tunnels in the V6. The passengers don't because all 4 windows have this habit of going down, the clutch tends to go in and the engine revs lots :lol:

Coming north from the Brussels direction, not far after that weird bit of autoroute where three lanes spread to four, with a reservation between lanes 2 and 3 ?

It might be the Kennedy Tunnel, or is that further round on the East side ?

Kennedy Tunnel it was, good knowledge of Europe you've got there! On the way back we went via Leuven and the magical Stella Artois brewery :D
