Hello,
I am interested in importing a currently owned 82 911 SC from the US into the U.K. Sorry for being so gerberal but would anyone be able to advise on cost effective shipping and what requirements I would need to meet to register the car?

Thanks for your time

is there much of a saving bringing one over, you have to get something called nova, then you can get an mot, you will need new rear lenses.

Are you saying there is not much of a savings? I already own the car, are you saying this SC isn't worth the expense to bring the car over? Could you please help me understand what is involved in nova?

I cant help with shipping but it will need some conversion work to pass an mot , mainly hazard lights , headlights on the beam pattern .

I think 82 is pre for fog lights needed but not 100% there .. you can always swop out the o/s/r reverse light and make it a fog light though if needed .

Hi. I imported my 81SC June last year.

If you've owned the car for more than 9 months in the USA and you don't sell it in the UK for at least year after it arrives you don't pay any import duty, assuming you are a UK national.

You need to change the rear lamp covers to euro ones with orange rather than red finish. 3 screws.

You need a red rear fog light. Euro lamp and bracket readily available.

You need a white front marker light that comes on with first pull of headlight switch. US cars have it in orange in the same lense as indicator.

My tester is happy for me to use the front fogs with a 5w bulb so long as they are wired to headlight switch.

I assume euro cars have it in the headlight assembly. Mine did not.

Most testers will accept realigning the USA headlights. Otherwise euro lights with I assume marker as well are around £400.

Hope that helps.

Edit. Fog light is 81 on.
Indicator repeaters on wing is 86on.
