Wanting to know a little more of whats involved in importing cars from Europe specifically the U.K. What I know already is shipping cost is approximately 600-1,000 to get a car across "the pond" that's pretty much where my understanding stops. As for import fees registration of a foreign vehicle etc. I would like to know. Another matter is I have heard if a family member with dual citizenship shipped the vehicle as they're personal vehicle various taxes and or fees can be avoided.

Thanks for the link. Considering "Diesel Gate" VW emissions scandal an ICI would likely be needed for any of the newer models.
