IMporting UK car


Morning all,

I have read about the process for importing a UK car and it looks fairly (!) simple...lots of paperwork.

However, to get through the road worthiness test I am wondering what to o about my headlamps. Will it be acceptable to use headlamp converters stuck onto the lights or should I really be thinking about changing the headlamp assembly from a UK version to a European version?

Any advice or help is gratefully received.

"No tax to pay on a vehicle over 6 months old."

No TVA to pay on a vehicle over 6 months old - but you will have to pay the one-off "mise en circulation" tax that will be added to your first year road tax bill, just as you would have had pay it for any newly-acquired (new or second-hand) vehicle.
