Re: Purchasing second hand car from private owner

While i have absolutely no experience of Spanish system i think apart from the fact that you need to be confident the car is debt-free all other arrangements are between you and the seller. As regards payment i think you will pay as per the sellers requirements so if they want cash... it be cash wit...

Re: bike import

Costa thanks for reply.
I assumed the UK cars i see driving around were insured in Spain, i know one guy who has a UK car for a few years.
They must be insuring in UK. The shipping option may be better.

Many thanks
