    My wife went to present my Ducati green book for the S4 its all in order but they fined us 3000 baht for illegal exhausts even though they were the ones it was inspected with at import and registration.I am fuming.It was pay up or the bike gets impounded even though its legal......thats extortion.

    Wonder if there is any legal argument here? but i am in UK now and not planning to nreturn for a while i am pissed off with Thailand generally.

    Sorry to hear that Marco.

    A married couple I know have just been jumping through hoops.

    2 weeks ago on returning into the country, she was stamped with a 12 months stay on entry and him a 90 day! The office where they attended last week for their preliminary annual visa application extension pointed this out & said the 12 months was cancelled, they must leave & enter again and this time get it right!

    This week Immigration in CM told them they need double the retirement money in their bank (800k each, instead of previous years 400k each) and yet their neighbours who are also both married expats were ok with 400k each the previous day.

    Crazy times eh !

    Good luck in sorting it out Marco, commiserations MonsterMan.
