Guys, we need a single catch-all thread/page here that we can point anyone asking this question which lists all the possibilities, benefits, pitfalls and requirements.

For now let's just post links/snippets from previous discussions and other sites with relevant information, then once we get enough material we can put together a decent article/thread outlining it with each of the major/finer points that someone might need.

This is just a list of threads in which is discussed "personal import" or "UK imports", I'd like to eventually break them up into importing, costs, RAWS, VASS, PI, etc to help folk out:

In short,

Yes, Exotics are cheap in the UK.

Yes, the personal import process is simple.

Yes, you'll save money.

Yes, compliancing was not a problem (for me).

If you plan to buy it from the UK and drive it here in Oz, then you'll be a happy Man  :)

Just make sure you do the homework and buy a nice one.

This will be mostly a compilation thread for now, if you need info quickly Deb and co from AustOrient know their stuff, otherwise a quick google brings up AutoStyle but I don't know anything about them apart from their spiele.

Autostyle is a reputable Sydney based prestige and performance dealership. We specialize in providing a wide range of quality products.

Vehicles to satisfy exact client specification can also be located by one of Autostyle's expert overseas buyers situated in Japan, Hong Kong, UK or USA. Autostyle can even arrange Australian Compliance plates for imported vehicles.

So if you're after an exotic show stopper, an unbeatable high-performance vehicle, or a car guaranteed to set apart from the rest, you can't go past Autostyle.

drobinson@austorient.com.au - Deb has been dealing with exotic imports since at least the first batch of motorshow Elise's in the mid-late 90's.

Legend. Fanks. You get a ride in the car if they can bring it in and register it... secretful for the moment though.   :)

yes one thing I miss after living in the UK for 10 years is the cost and choice available :D

private import is pretty straight forward also know a few guys who can and do source cars from UK

Autostyle appear to be bringing cars in Lambos in particular, havent dealt with them also a Group in Perth, they have a Gallardo advertised

the saving on Aust compliance $$$$  cars can be significant :thumbsup:
try it you may like !!!
