Of course, you can't just take a newly imported car from the seller and start driving it. There are legal and preparation and cosmetic things. Here's a few of my list. I'm known for wanting to keep Zs as stock as possible - well, someone's got to - but there are temptations. For some of those, I follow Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills's advice*
Now I've sold it (Aug 19), this page is clearly not going to get a complete update. But just so you don't think I was completely lazy, have done a quick comment here and there.
Things on the List
June 2011 Waxoyl and Underseal
Southern Car Security: Thatcham Cat 1 alarm, remote. Miguel did my Blue Zed before and has experience of Zeds and Skylines.
Register at DVLA. Not too bad, just make sure you've got all the right paperwork, fill in the right forms and a few days later the registration number arrives followed by the V5C. The only slight pain was insuring the car as this needed to be done on the chassis number before it could be registered and then changed to the reg number when it arrived. Also I was lucky as the MOT centre was next to Zedworld and Zedworld have trade plates. If I'd been doing it myself, would have had to insure it to drive it to the (pre-booked) MOT. But Livingstones Warman sorted that out with minimum hassle - also sorted insuring both cars temporarily, organising new policy when needed and generally being helpful.
Get delivered from Northern Ireland to Zedworld by Eamon & Mary McLaughlin Car Transport who specialise in this sort of thing. If you've got a car you need transported to/from UK, Ireland or Continental Europe, they're just the job..
