Thanks to @numpty67 I have been looking at "Goo-Net" all night at all the weird and wonderful JDM cars available at low, low, prices (is it just me, or does that sound a bit like a supermarket commercial?!). I really like odd small cars with automatic gearboxes - rare here, but not in Japan with their funky "Kei" cars. A Honda Z Turbo looks appealing. Really! Just me?

Facelift Model - Importing Euro-R CL7 Having looked around on the web, it seems a bit more complex than I was expecting, what with tax implications, inspections, alarm requirements (this must be an urban myth, surely!?), along with the simple stuff like getting a rear fog light fitted and the MOT. I wondered whether those members that had imported a car personally would recommend it, and could share any hints and tips. Or is using an established UK based broker a better, albeit more expensive, option. Thoughts?
