I would love to come to Poland with, especially if you were paying but I will be Stateside on that date.
I don't know how you feel about modifications but the fact he "is putting the mufflers back on" would make me run a mile, what else has been f*cked about with? I am also not liking the fact it is in Poland and unregistered, please make sure his NOVA is valid for the UK and has a genuine NOVA number you can check with U.K Customs & Excise, I am not trying to p!ss on your parade dude I just don't want to see you shafted, I've seen it too many times here at the shop when people have imported cars, have the wrong or incomplete documentation and got their fingers well and truly burnt, what started off as a £20,000 deal of the century all of a sudden turns into a £35,000 white elephant,
Now for your lights, as I said earlier I have never looked into converting the 2015 up LED lights and am not sure how to do it, if you search the web (I am sure you have) there are plenty of videos and sites that say they can do it, one funnily enough in Poland that looks like you could just buy the lights ready done but beware of our IVA lighting requirements I have seen some conversions that would fail a U.K IVA for Stop light/fog light spacing (they have to be 4 inches apart)
That quote you have seems about what I have heard firms charge, I have always thought £800 for a light conversion is a bit of a rip of considering the sh!t job most of them do, also you could save the £200 for them to take it for an IVA, you could do that yourself. An IVA test will take less than 30 minutes, they check your seat belts, dashboard warning lights, a couple stickers under the hood and the air bag sticker on the right B pillar (you might have to add one here yourself, buy one on Ebay), the tyres (make sure you have the exact size Z rated tyres specified on the door sticker), the lights including headlight Aim and most importantly the VIN sticker on the drivers door, without this sticker you cannot pass an IVA as this sticker says the car conforms to all U.S Federal regulations, DVSA take this as automatically conforming to U.K regulations on stuff like Air Bags, ABS, Immobiliser, Seat belt mounts, suspension mounts, ETC.
