importing a F355 from Germany...

Anyone done this..? or know how to ?

I have seen a couple of 355s' on german websites (at dealers) that are around 5000 GBP cheaper than the equivalent car here... being in the UK.. is it as simple as just driving it over...? what paperwork need to be done ? Any conversions need to be done.. e.g. headlights ? etc..

would be good to chat to someone here if they have done this...

You're lucky you live in the U.K. with regard to importing a European car, since there is very little involved apart from paperwork, and an administration fee which I believe is reasonable.
Other European levy taxes varying between 12% -30%.

The car will, no doubt, have to undergo an MOT and the headlights may already have provision for changing from LHD to RHD, in the form a small lever in the area where the main bulb is fitted into the headlamp unit.

I'm 100% sure on this but it is more than likely.
