I don't think Dean can loose any weight personally, there ain't nowt of him. His D3 on the other hand is like the tardis, or Mr Bens wardrobe. Plenty hidden inside that can be lost to save weight.

Now we live n learn....I only said that as I normally get off a plane from EU or ferry. Didn't realise the border implications.

But as Dean is probably living Spain from Spain I should think it'll be ok just this once :lol:

no it won^t...Andorra is a principality, not fully Spanish. The main border crossing is strictly controlled and every vehicle is checked inside and out for fuel, tobacco, alcohol etc
