    W124 JPY Imports?

    Good afternoon to you all - I'm seriously thinking about pushing the button on a (24K mile!?) pre-facelift 1990 W124 300E. Has anyone in the community got an experience specifically of JPY imported low mileage cars? "Some-say" they come-in as absolute minters, and the jacks fall out of the...

    Japanese imports and increased insurance premium

    I'm looking at buying a Japanese import. It's via a proper company in the UK and is a splendid looking 1994 G Wagen 300 GE. Just done an insurance quote and if I say it's imported, the premium goes up by 25% and my excess increases by £150 over what it was when I got a quote with no...

    DIY imports, VCA, type approval, DVLA etc

    Hi all I'm just wondering if anyone has imported a rairly recent LHD Merc into the UK in recent times? I work for much of the time in Germany although I still officially live in the UK. Most of my business mileage is overseas so it makes sense to buy a left-hooker for business use (I just...

    Newbie questions on W126 Japanese imports

    Having run a 300SE a couple of years ago (90K to 120K faultless miles) I am now looking at the V8s and attracted by the low mileage LHD imports from Japan that are around.

    EU Supplied Imports - A good buy??

    I'm currently searching for a 2003-ish SL350 or SL500 and keep seeing new and secondhand eu-supplied imports for sale at markedly below the uk supplied equivalent. For example Hondas-uk are selling brand new SL350s at £9k below list! Is this the bargain it seems or does the old saying "if it...

    Hong Kong imports

    Just come accross a low mileage 129 series SL500 for sale, which has taken my fancy. Sounds really good, but transpires it has been imported from Hong Kong. Does anyone know what the implications of this might be? thanks Simon
