They are not French cars they are built in Vigo Galicia.

Agree with the sentiments about costs here in Spain.
Short story time!
The other day had two guys turn up to talk to us about changing electricity supply companies. There is a free market these days we was told. I suggested that it was not the case. They wanted to prove their point so we sat and talked for a while. Maybe they were right. It seems that the standing charge can vary between one company and the other. We could save ourselves a whole 50 cents per month if we changed. The rate at which the electric is charged per unit is controlled by the government. That I knew, for me there is not a free market at all.
