    He will never look at them the same way. Now just tell him that bugs and hawks are the same inside the package and he will commit suicide

    does anyone know for sure if vat and/or duty is payable if you buy a car that was originally a Jdm car but subsequently registered in the uk I.e if you brought in a uk registered car that brought in from Japan previously.

    Thanks Paul

    If a dealer is selling it in the uk the duty and vat is paid . All it requires is buying it driving it over and paying the Vrt. It's the same as here won't get off the docks unless it's paid

    do a history check if buying from uk dealers

    milage and auction sheet reports from japan are easy found
    dont take their word

    yeah if all ready registered in UK vat must have been paid on import from Japan so you don't pay vat again

    know a lad that bought an unregistered jap import in northern Ireland and he was stung for vrt and vat when registered down here . another 4 or 5 k at the time .

    Having looked at all the figures and prices and while I’m attached to jdm cars for the way they drive , I think the smart money wouldn’t pay 20/25 k for a jdm hawk but buy a 2006 hawk 2.5 for 10-12k drive it to Ali and get the engine sorted and future proofed for 4/5 k car standing you 14/16 euros nearly 10k less that a jdm equivalent ,

    jdm cars are good but there not 10k better

    It will become a right mess now when UK exits EU and we again are going to be on the receiving end.

    1070 v 710 which is only 360 euros a year more you keep the car 4 years. It’s only 1440 euros more so your still saving 8560 euros

    Had the same chat the other day it doesn't make sense to get a fresh import in for the money you pay as good as they are. As joe says they're not 10k better

    Kinda funny looking back now. When I eventually sold my hatch sti one of the reasons for not keeping was the engine was going strong so didn’t seem to make sense spending money to mod it

    It would be great to get a hawk or hatch where the engine had gone to start from scratch and have more budget to spend sorting engine and setup. Someone on here bought a hatch with engine gone a while back

    Then again the acceleration from the twin scroll feels awesome...
    haven’t driven one for years but drove a blob spec c up in Monaghan years ago

    For pure driveability and raw feel the jdm wins every time they're phenomenal I've driven a good few of them and they feel better every time having said that as joe said there not that good to justify the extra money so it's a catch 22

    I think a JDM wide track blob would do you.

    going to throw the cat among the pigeons here but having driven an 07 spec c that a good friend had and to compare to the lowly edm 2.5 , genuinely there isn' enough to justify the extra outlay for the jdm , yes there is the cool factor of it been a spec c but a forged 2.5 isn't a car to be sniffed at .
