Sorry, that's just my sense of humour (and yes I know that sarcasm is the
lowest form of wit). I knew what you meant.

My car is also a 'personal' import, although it was new. Since I could
either pay a UK dealer about US$65K or a German dealer about US$42K and then
pay just over US$7K for UK import tax, I chose the latter. And of course
about US$6K of the purchase price was just to have a RHD car (yes it costs
more, but not that much). Audi make nice cars but like all car manufacturers
they are milking the UK car market.

My advice to you is not to use an agent. Go direct to a German dealer (yes,
including used cars). The paperwork is actually quite easy.

Thanks for the answer, Dave.
I was saying imported because I had to import it myself, since I wanted a
recent second-hand and here in Spain it was imposible to find. Instead, we
have a bunch of companies (a lot of them not very honnest) wich will find,
import and make the paperwork for you for any kind of second-hand german car
you want. The only problem is you have to trust them, and usually they don't
deserve your trust (for example I haven't been able to get the maintenance
book of the car they were supposed to send me after two months of daily
phone calls). Don't even think about sueing them, this is Spain, you'll get
tired before they do. By the way, could you explain the difference beetwen
SAE hp and DIN hp please, that's the first time I hear about that. Cheers.
