Callum Murry Portugal is not a third w0rld country. Portuguese people are so nice . They allow foreigners to abuse them with bad behavior . I saw it in Lagos when I was there last year. Drunk, bad words. I assume you are British , please compare Algarve with some parts of Britain. I can't wait for things to get better so I can go back. Lovely people and lovely country.

6 lines of news is no news, new cars are often sold in numbers to industry usually the fleet and rental car industry, take them out of the system and lets see the real numbers, the private car sales, but in Portugal, just like many other 3rd world countries i've been to, just have a look at the expensive prestige cars on the road, yesterday i saw a new Lamborghini Urus , a €300,000 car, then they say Portugal is a poor country, i think not.

Tried to get financing in VW Bank. I was ready to pay 30 % despite the fact that they didn't require initial payment under the terms of the promotion. I was refused. I had all the documents except for the residence card since SEF stopped making appointments.
What can I say - keep storing cars in your parking lots. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
