    getting the thing back from the Isle of Man hasnt been easy - thanks to the red tape thrown around by the DVLA.

    Initially I was told that I would have to have a full SVA and obtain letters of conformity from BMW etc !!!!

    Finally got to a more acceptable procedure of getting an MOT, Insurance, completed V55/5 form, price of a tax disc and an extra £120 registration fee.

    Ive got my own plate on retention (assignment fee already paid) but it seems they are reluctant to let me put that straight on. Another way to get my money I think !!! The argument continues !!

    Welcome to the forum

    Pleased to hear you got around the ESVA inspection. I used to work in one of these centres and what a nightmare just to get a car into the country. Most of the cars I worked on were jap but also worked on American cars too.

    Not there yet but it is looking hopeful

    It seems that the DVLA forgot to mark the vehicle as exported so DVLA themselves have advised me to just apply for a new log book !!!

    fingers crossed !!!
