    I usually just pay at the border with a credit card, and then draw Pula at an ATM at the first shopping centre that I see.

    The guys on the internet say that you have to change the oil and filter every 80 000 km.

    I am certainly going to do that, and have already done so with my BMW (they also say lifetime).

    They may try to convince you to buy a new Garmin.

    It should be able to do that.
