No luck at all, all black! I had my mind made up over a year ago it had to be Hemi Orange, so stuck to my guns, and ended up going all the way to the South f France!! Ah well, was worth it.

Might be going out for a play tomorrow night if you're about?

Cirencester

Hi all

I live in Cirencester (Cotswolds)
I bought a 2013 RT 6 speed manual. It was wrapped in Matt Black Vinyl which i decided to take off.

Glad i did as i have now found out it was in a front end collision while in the US!! They put it back on the road but used all the broken parts and put it back together blindfolded. Its a mess!!
Now the power steering pump has gone!!!
So long story short, it needs some work and alot of money put into it.

Just wanted to say Hello, and once i am on the road ill give you guys a shout.

Hi all!

Looking at buying a Challenger - for anyone in the UK who's gone through the whole process could you give me a ballpark estimate how much it costs to import one into the UK? All costs, shipping, IVA, required mods, registration etc.

I've read online ~30% car value is a reasonable estimate - is that about right?

Hi

I dont know much about importing a car but i know there are specialist company's that can do it all for you.
That is if you cannot find the right spec/model you want in the UK.

I have purchased one in the UK and i have had a nightmare with it, as i found out that it was in a front end collision in the US and was not declared when exported to the UK!!! I know need to spend a few grand fixing it up :-(
Just from that alone i wouldnt even think about buying a car without inspecting it a very low level next time (a lesson learnt)
Either way, before you buy a car, use this website. It could of saved me a £20k.

www.carfax.eu

It cost £34 to get a full report, and this will tell you if anything is wrong with the car.

Hope that helps. Shout if i can be of any more help.

Strutter, you've probably checked this all out thoroughly but have you looked at your return rights? Depends on if it's private or dealer sale, but the rules have all changed a lot recently in your favour.

No problem, yes it will be over fourty plus if you looking try Florida Trucks in Essex he does the lot and all is checked out and your buying good quality, otherwise shop around you will get what you want also there`s Chariots they advertise in the American classic mag, he is very knowledgeable and knows the ins and outs if you source a car this side of the States it will save you big time on delivery he can also give you the total cost to import with all taxes and iva , he I believe got contacts in the US worth a try !
best wishes Tony
