Exporting a car from Spain

Postby Bongtrees » Sun Aug 16, 2009 4:17 pm

Im taking a Spanish reg LHD car to UK and re-registering it there.

Does anyone know what if anything has to be done in Spain apart from a baja for the road tax?

TIA

Bongtrees, have you given up on Spain? Or are you just going away for a while?

How is your daughter doing now?

No, not given up but fed up treading water so gonna try 50/50 to see how that works out but all my cars are LHD and well worth keeping, p.ex prices are very low here and car costalot.

My daughter is almost fully recovered, thanks for asking. :)

To follow this thread up a bit. What is involved at the UK end in terms of takiing a spanish registered vehicle back there and re-registering it there. Is it expensive?
