I'll be going to France in a couple of weeks.
I'm not going to scour any junkyards, but I could slip a small item or two (no body parts) in my luggage (to or from) if that helps anyone.
I suppose I could mail larger items if given exact instructions.

Things that might be cheaper here:
O2 sensors
Bulbs
Books
???

Things that may be available there:
Non-EPA APC and LH boxes
Lucas parts
???

Small spanner (8mm?) to throw in the works, Jim...

I'm not sure I've ever even _seen_ a c900 in France. They're very far from common over there - mine got a lot of "What's that?" kinda looks when I took it over a couple of months ago.

My suspicion is that you'll be doing very well to find any parts of any kind for them without "scouring" scrappies - unless you've got a local contact.

FYI, if you get Volvo 740 headlights, you can sell them in the US for a decent money. Thanks to DOT, headlights in the US are required to blind oncoming traffic and illuminate anything but the road in front of the car.

Spit off the top of the Eiffel tower, buy some tourist trinkets have some fine food and wine, send a pile of post cards with some cheeky quips to people you can't stand:lol:

I'm not planning on searching for parts, I just thought that if I could bring someone a Bentley or some such thing at half the European price it might be useful.
I never was a parts man, I'm just offering to be the mule.
