    Hello all, I am from Gibraltar. I drive a 2006 Honda Accord Type-S as a daily driver and for family outings in the fields I use my 91 (yes that old lol)Mitsubishi Montero.

    Welcome to HK
    Looking forward to pics.

    Is your car dent and scratch free? Last time I was in Gib nearly every car I saw got few dents and scratches.

    Hi guys thanks for the warm welcome, well driving around Gib can be a bit frustrating as it is not too big, when I was much younger it was really fun to race around the rock at night time but that was an other era lol.
    For long open roads you need to go into spain and as @Duc de Pommfrit has pointed out you have to bear crossing a frontier where your car gets checked for contraband materials by the Guardia Civil (they assume every single person who crosses the border is a smuggler which really is an excuse to create these border queues). That unfourtunately I think will go on forever, the spannish goverment will always bring up one excuse or an other to justify the disconfort to us Gibraltarians and their own.
    And yes @Zoran, it does have its share of parking rash lol although its not too bad considering its age lol. Private parking spaces are so limited here that the ones available, if any, will probably cost more than two fold of what your car is worth and the other factor is the roll on effect that not many people care much of their cars.
    At the moment my Accord is at a standstill as it has failed the MOT due to the ABS lights and it is being a nightmare to sort out. Good thing I've got my bullet proof battle wagon, its not a Honda but at least it is Jap lol
