when it arrives here you pay 10% duty on the cost of the car plus shipping.....then you pay vat at 17.5% on the whole lot eg...cost of car, shipping and 10% duty....  it all soon mounts up.  You have to pay 50 quid to the docks for handling and insurance, then say another 50 quid for custom clearance.....  make sure you cover all costs first...

Would that include shipping??

At £3500, including shipping, you would be looking at arround £5000 fully registered me thinks.

Do you have any pics of it mate?

cheers

we were thinking of that car but a 350Z is only 2000000 yen about 11000 so for about 14500 quid we can get it in the uk and order another 1 play wiht it for a few months then sell it for a weeeeeee bitty profit

me thinks you\'re going to have a bit of a problem finding a non accident damaged repaired one for 2000000 yen.

be careful thou son, you\'re gonna need a model report for it and I dont think there is one yet. :flamed

A chap in my neighbourhood had bought a Landcruiser Amazon, without a model report it watch it stand in the drive till someone does one or pay around £4500 to do your own.
