Toby, it might be cheaper to buy a car when you get here, then sell it before you go back home. Also, there will be customs clearance charges, and if you stay here over a certain amount of time, then maybe you have to register your car here instead of using it as a temporary import. If that is the case, then you'll have to pay import duty and VAT, I reckon. Then deregister it and pay to ship it home. I've no idea how much of that is fact, but this country wants its pound of flesh and WILL bend you over!!
