Purchase & Import company recommendations.

I paid around €3000 (2700 gbp) on top of the auction price to get it (auction cost + shipping to exporter), get it shipped, insured, imported and registered. I did most of the stuff myself and saved myself about 1000 to 1500 euros. If I had to do it again, I actually might spend that money to not have the hassle of doing it all myself again. Wink

Purchase & Import company recommendations.
Thanks for the recommendations so far.

I have been in contact with Torque-Gt and japaneseusedcars (still in conversation). JM-imports is being a bit slow on replies but am getting there.
Have also contact Gorilla Imports as recommned on Driftworks forum, will see how that goes.

Torque-GT while it seems great, couldn't be located further away from me if it tried, transport costs from them to me are looking to be too costly, and I cant really rely on a 30 year old new purchase car on a almost 11-12 hour 650 mil journey.

Any other sugestions welcome.
