  1. As I recall, Article 106 covers the temporary import of autos.
  2. If you want to waste your time chatting with Transito then don't get an emmision sticker. It may just work for you.
  3. Passports are good for 10 years, so that be only 1/10th of that amount.
  4. No, I said you need to dial as one does in the USA, e.g. the call to Mexico so you dial 011 52 1 + the 10 digit number!
  5. Wherever you are with your cellphone you must enter the number you're calling the way it is done in that country! BigD does your plan cost $12? That's what the Telcel $199 Peso Unlimited Plan costs!
  6. The phone should work in the USA. Our iPhones do and we're on the same plan.
  7. The calls are not unlimited in time, they are limited by the minutes in your Telcel plan. If you're paying $499/mo then your minutes are unlimited. I think the $199 plan is 500 minutes.
  8. I heartily disagree. I'd had good service from them for a couple of years. Then when my engine started making a strange noise they wanted to tear the engine down and wanted a $2,000 Pesos deposit. I went to Pablo's Garage where they found a loose spark plug and charged me nothing. Escalera was off my list forever.
  9. Pablo certainly does. BTW, I've always been satisfied with Dalton. Escalera not to much. They wanted to tear my engine apart due to a strange noise. I said no and went to Pablo. He found a loose spark plug, tightened it, noise gone, No Charge! Never went to Escalera again. Pablo many times, always satisfied. Dalton only because my Rav is still in warranty. After it expires it will go to Pablo.
  10. What kind of problem are you referring to? There are several options at the airport and many off-airport.
  11. Dealing with customer (lack of) service. All their arcane paperwork.
  12. Amazon US ships to Mexico, no duties and low shipping charges. No need to have someone schlep the stuff down.
  13. Pretty much every gym has personal trainers. There are couple of trainers that advertize in the GR and Ojo.
  14. True. IMHO, you're better off to get your insurance company that actually exists in Mexico. YMMV.
  15. Allianz. My costs are not public information. Besides, the info would be meaningless unless you knew my age and conditions. I will tell you this; it has no upper limit and is non-cancelable. The Allianz rep is Jesus Tejeda, he can give you a quote.
  16. Read these policies VERY carefully. I was considering Best Doctors until I learned that it really covers only about 15 things. My current policy covers over 33,000. Best Dr. is good for some people especially those beyond the age that most insurance companies write coverage or those who are OK with being covered for only 15 issues. A friend had cancer treatment at an outpatient clinic, the insurance didn't pay because it paid only for procedures done in a hospital. Read the policy!
  17. You're getting $200 Pesos of credit, not 200 minutes. Calling the USA is free on the Amiga Plan, Facebook and What'sApp are free to everyone. I'd get a plan but they won't bill a US credit card, so I use the Amiga plan. It works for me.
  18. Ask in the Bakery department. It's not not but they will get some for you.
  19. Many folks lakeside got to the Costco on Lopez Mateos Sur, making the Superama on LMS the easiest to find. Look for the big Burger King sign on your way to Costco, it's easier to spot than the Superama sign.
  20. Jara and Amutio both have them. RV, the electric ones are not nearly as loud as the gas powered ones, they make as much noise as a vacuum.
  21. Good. She's the best IMHO, but likely not the best for everyone. No Dr. is.
