    Holden HSV GTS

    how hard is it to find them in england :?: for a good price or would it be easyer to bring one back to england with me.
    I have been using one and i love them interior is a bit cheap put its a fast car lots of low down power and the best bit is the sound of it

    what would i have to pay if i ship one over hear :?: vat :?: import tax :?:
    i could buy a used one would i still pay vat ect ect

    £30k+ it's not worth shipping one across though mate my dad looked into Shipping his XF Ford Falcon V8 across when we moved back from Australia in 1996 and it was gonna cost a hell of a lot! it cost us £1500 just to ship a few boxes!!

    I also think if you've owned the car for more than a year abroad you dont have to Pay VAT (thats the way it is importing from Europe) but road tax will be expensive as it's a V8! Also insurance will kill you on a 5.7 litre V8 and especially an Import!

    but That is a very nice HSV based on the VY Commodore

    Looked at one, afew months ago. Posted it up aswell.

    Nice car, but doesn't handle amazingly well, and drinks the jungle juice like it's going out of fashion !

    The Gts is actually prone to alot of body roll and is very tail happy, great lookin car very quick but like you say LN it drinks the Jungle Juice very very quickly not really a car for britain as fuel in Australia is about a third of the price it is here!

    How about this Lotus Omega from kent Modded car show

    *Disclaimer.. We reckon the guy that told Pete that it was a Lotus omega was either pulling his leg or pretending to be the owner and not have a clue what he was talking about*

    re: Holden HSV GTS

    Fancied a HSV myself for some time. They pop up on www.autotrader.co.uk from time to time.

    With regards to importing one - if anyone has done it, then these guys will have - check out this website and accompanying forum:
