Buying car from Ireland

Postby andrew186 » Wed Mar 23, 2011 12:56 am

Hi guys

I am after an Altezza and there are so many nice examples for sale in Ireland!

Whats the best way to purchase from Ireland and will there be any issues? Im in the midlands..

Has anyone used shipping / transport companies? How much?

There's nothing involved really! You can either come over and collect which will probably be the cheapest option or I know a few lads who are into transporting! If/when you're looking for someone send me a pm and I'll give you two numbers to contact

I'd say your biggest issue would be getting it registered back in the UK, probably best to get info on that before buying from here...

I can remember discussions on Lexus club about problems getting RS200 registered, only cars with a certain ECU serial no. were allowed... 10 year old cars were easier though IIRC :?

Has that all changed??? :?:

Ehhh...............? I couldnt tell ya to be honest! I know when I was thinking of moving over the lads on skylineowners.com were saying it was just a 50 quid reg fee and that was it! Nothing was ever said about certain cars not being allowed though! I've heard of a few people importing to the UK without any problems though so maybe it has but I'm not sure to be honest!

Did you know that it is possible to save a great of cash whenever you purchase your automobile at an auto auction? These sales may be run by the government, law enforcement or auto liquidators. When it comes to government and law enforcement sales, it is not unusual to run across auction vehicles which were seized from drug dealers. While such vehicles do not pose some risk to possible drivers, the methods through which such automobiles are obtained have generated no little amount of controversy. Get the complete details here.
