When we came to Perth in 2007 we brought our Toyota Lucida with us and went through the whole import process. It is a long process and you need bags of patience. Happy for you to PM me but it is a case of cost of transportation vs what you could sell if for in UK and what an equivalent would cost you in Perth. It is no worse than importing a car into UK which we have also done. If it is a standard build that passes an MOT in UK is should not have many issues, ours only required adjustment for baby seats in the back and an emissions test. Make sure you keep all your docs from UK as they won't let you register it without your DVLA doc You should look at the AQAS(?) website. You will pay import duty dependent on age and how long you have owned it. Bev.
