People are often confused over the difference between a grey imported vehicle and buying a car from an overseas dealer, and some even think that grey imported vehicles are not in the country legally! This, of course, is not true – grey imported cars are legally imported from other countries but outside of the makers’ normal distribution system. There are some things you need to consider when investing in a grey imported car however, such as the laws in the country you are importing it from, as they differ from place to place.
There are some modifications you will be required to make after importing your new car so that it is road legal here in the UK, but there are a number of other modifications you can also apply at your discretion. Some people think that converting a vehicle to right-hand drive ruins the whole experience, however if you can’t bear driving on the left then it’s a necessity! Depending on the condition of the car you may have to arrange bodywork or improve the mechanics, and while you are doing so it’s important that you keep a record of all changes – this information is essential when filling out our online form!
I bought my insurance online before and the quote process was so lengthy and complicated compared with the process on your site. Great stuff!
