I’m being told it is a certificate which confirms the vehicle technical data like emissions etc. Apparently  Mazda can provide it for a few hundred Euros.

I am not an expert but check carefully you really do need the certificate of Conformity for a vehicle of the age of yours. I think they do not usually apply after ten years - for classics/older cars - here in the UK. We are (temporarily at least) supposed to be still using the same rules as the rest of Europe!  I recently imported a motorcycle and found the online information and the advice received direct from HMRC staff hugely confusing and sometimes just wrong.  The ferry company'd freight department answered my questions in plain English and were right on all counts.  In the absence of anything else - an aggregate market valuation for an FC RX7 should not be difficult to substantiate if Spanish customs need a benchmark to calculate import tax?

Thanks for the advice.

I think you are correct but the Spanish government likes to take as much tax as they can.

It should be completely free from import tax as the car is my personal possession which I’m moving to Spain at the same time I apply for tax residency. However I have just been informed that proving this is the problem. There is no recognised paperwork in this area, so they tend to tax you anyway

Just got one idea. Contact this gent, Jason Holland @ koskinimport.com. He is a brit living in Finland. He has imported cars around europe and might be able to give you some tips

Thanks for taking the time to go through your paperwork japi. I Dre a blank looking through mine also. I am taking the car to an expert next week who thinks he can produce the required paperwork from the car serial numbers. I will let you know how I get on.

Thanks for the web link Kevlar. I will have a read

Thanks both

Confusing isn’t it. I found this on the net which is different again. Think I will give them the lowest figures I can find
