    Just to add to non-answers, I was sent one after I signed my worker up for IMSS a while ago but I have no idea when it should be used as I have never been asked for it,  

    Strange. Maybe another example of Mexicans loving their paperwork.

  2. I tried to send some money online (500 pesos) from my bank account here to my bank account in Canada. I could do it recently but now a notice comes up that I have to go to my local bank in San Antonio Tlay. and present a number of documents first. Documents that show my name, RFC, CURP etc. But one is a bit mysterious they want my FIEL serial number. This all seems a bit odd as I have had an account at this bank since 2011. Has anyone been asked for a FIEL?

  3. I used Spring Clean (which sounds similar to Dust Busters) for several years and they had some advantages. Like not having to calculate the Vacation pay and Aguinaldo and dealing with unsatisfied (greedy) employees sometimes for years. There were usually 3 workers so they were in and out faster. I liked the way they cleaned the windows-one person inside and one out on the same window.

    you are making stuff up based on hearsay. we are all capalbe of reading labels. if it says adalat its adalat.

    There are often other things added. Read again and do some research on the Mexican product. Whenever I get a new (to me) product here I do  some reading online about that specific product before using it. Talk to some experts like doctors. You must be fairly new here-a lot to learn.

    Prescriptions are for antibiotics and narcotics 

    And other things. Best to see a doctor and get the right prescription. Some of the medications are quite different here than NOB.  Additives can be problematic. The people working at the Farmacias often aren't pharmacists-just young uns. I have gotten medications that should require a prescription without a prescription and had a serious bad reaction

    two things. one when fernando ran the place that is EXACTLY how things were priced. he had a fixed price for each part of the body. period. two the price is EXTREMELY important. ignoring prices is just begging to be taken especially in this town

    I used Fernando several times and that isn't exactly how things were priced. You sound a bit too price conscious. I'll take quality first any day. Begging to be taken!? Not likely-I just want value for my money. I told him that I did not want a boiler plate price but a price based on how long they worked on the vehicle and their cost for materials.

    can i ask what did you have done and how much. used to be 1200 for a bumper or hood or door, 1400 for a quarter panel

    Yes, you can ask but I don't think the answer is as simple as you seem to think as It depends on many things. I don't see how the price can be broken down so simply. For me price is not the main objective-but good long lasting quality is. When I pay for something years later I probably won't remember how much I paid but I will notice if the quality is poor or good and it will bug me that someone could get away with doing sloppy work.

    Sure it wasn't Juniors ? We've used Roberto's a couple of times with good results, at least commensurate with the price. I wouldn't take a brand new car there and expect as new finish

    I have found that both Robert and Estilo Junior do inferior work but they are cheaper. Fernando's now called Body Shop does much better work. I had to take a vehicle back to Estilo Junior 3 times and the paint job was still not very good.

    The paint store where the Truper hardware store is next to Intercam.  Maybe they didn't use a computer, I don't remember, but they had the machine with cylinders of different colors to tint the base.

     

    They don't have a computer. If the boss (Efren?) is doing the matching it is excellent. If it is someone else who knows.

    A friend bought several gallons of paint mixed at the above store that was supposed to be the same as the color swatch.  Oh boy, was it off--not even close and it was mixed using the computer with the color code.  And then another couple of gallons of contrasting trim color from the same swatch.  Again, not even close.  That was an expensive lesson.  Always look in the can before you leave the store!!

     

    Which store are you referring to when you say above? There are several above.

    Prisa does not use a computer. Do you mean Comex.
