1985. UK. regn. I think the vehicle is too old to be imported here anyway. It's not old enough to be imported as a classic or is it?

As to how much you'd pay. How long is a piece of string?

25 years old for classic, you need to ask the classic car club and join up they should be able to help you out.they are good on the the laws and regs concerning classic cars. i dont think you should have much of a problem with your car,and you will not have to pay loads of tax just registration i think? + a small value of the of the original cost when new price. if your car was not 25 years or over then just forget about it as it just is not worth the hassle or cost.. i dont have the number for the classic car club but it should be easy to find, good luck.

If you are aloud to bring it in, the Tax seems to be around 80 - 110% of the book price.

The way to find out for sure is ask at customs...but beware the price may change by the time you've got the motor over to Cyprus!

Becky's right, if you take the details with you to customs and see the guy in the room at the end of the corridor on the left, he will give you a price. I've helped a few people in the past with this as well as importing my own car.

Well, we brought our car over, four years ago, after doing ''all the homework''. By the time it came to register it, the taxes had gone up by 50%, from 5.000 to 10,000, so beware.

I just paid another ''sunshine tax, and put it behind me.

Our only mistake, well mine, hubby is still happyish about it, the car is his baby.

Would we do it again.......NO......

Don't trust them with a quote. We got a quote from customs they had the reg and everything, when it got here they just made up a price. Then that is what you have to pay!
