New to the forum and looking to buy an S3. Found one to my spec at the right price so asked the seller a few questions. When I asked if it was originally bought from a UK Audi Dealer? I was told the following
"The car was imported from Germany and sold here new but is full UK spec, and
is registered on Audi UKs system "
What does this exactly mean? Is this a bad thing and will I have trouble getting insurance etc on it as it is an import?
Any advice would be much appreciated
Re: Buying advice
If the car was first registered in the UK then you won't have any problems.. If it wasn't then you then you may get charged a bit more.
I "suspect" that cars imported in Germany aren't susceptable to the same insurance premium as imports from say Japan.
I had an MX-3 which was first registered in the UK then immediatly taken to Germany and then brought back after a couple of years.. The V5 had import on it, so I was a little suspicious, but the history checked out and all my insurance cared about was the car was registered in this country before being take abroad.
Some additional information ...
