I have 2014 VW UP! - Spanish Reg  Right hand drive, only 28K miles, service history,  which is for sale for 4,800 euros.  Talue is at least 2,000 more in the UK.  It would only take 2 tanks of petrol to get you there and either enjoy it or sell for a good profit.

Interested?.   Contact me.

Is SUMA up to date ?

Is the car SORN in the UK or was the export process completed ?

Hi Kelvin

The engine size is 999 cc - call it a litre.  HP is 55 KW.  4 doors last time I looked.   Air con yes, working- could freeze a brass monkey...

Manual .   SUMA is paid, receipt available.   ITV current and needs renewing in January next year - never had an advisory.    It has only done 28 thousand miles!.  Only one owner who is deceased, his son had to register it in his name to allow me to have it  (it was included with the house I bought) so technically it is 2 owners.

In Spain since 2016.  Not on SORN legally exported.  It will not be subject to any taxation when returned to the UK and it will not be treated as a foreign car!

Service history is available with the car.

Just mail me if you have any other questions.

Kind regards

Richard

This post that was quoted has been deleted.

I do not think that you have any experience whatsoever in the movement of vehicles within Europe even after Brexit so I will enlighten you:-

No there will be no import tax, VAT was paid when the car was first purchased.   Yes, you will have to pay for the ferry and road tolls but the sale price of the car in the UK will be at least 2000 GBP more that the price I am asking.  Gottit?

Kind regards

Richard

Hello again

Yes, its a good option that you have described.    Everything works as it should on the car and it has ITV until January next year and it is such low mileage there has never been a problem.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards   Richard

Hello Richard,

I am planning on driving from Spain to the Uk in November I would be happy to 

Drive it to the Uk for you and if I could use it for my one month stay then sell it 

For you in the Uk I could then fly back after sending you the money of course 

But I can’t afford to buy it from you but it could be a good option for you ?

From Gillian

Thanks for the offer but I need to sell outright.

Kind regards

Richard
