Did I say that?

I said I know around 300

In my discussions most have company cars

Do I have numbers of the 300 that have company cars
No

But on my discussions I have formed the opinion that company cars are still common.

Dear all - I do really appreciate the advice and suggestions that all the posters have provided on this thread. However, could I ask to please keep comments on topic. Regarding the company car - until the package is discussed I won't know, therefore it really is a moot point.

But again - thank you for taking the time to offer your advice.

I moved here around 6 months ago and wouldn't change it for the world.

The only thing I would say is that beware when looking at the super imposed rentals on websites, they don't look quite like that in reality......

Also, from my initial pre move budget, I had to up the rental amount considerably especially if you want to be near beaches etc but still managing to maintain a good living style.

Thanks very much GSAI - was thinking around $800/week - definitely want to be near to a beach - do you think that's reasonable?
