    Go in for an Oil change come out with an Import

    Yea took me car to the garage yestarday for an oil filter change (been ban'd by me mum so can't do it on front) and when the guy rings up about it he has a rather lengthy conversasion with the person on the other end finding it difficult to get stuff for me car anyway he finally gets the order in hangs up and say's to me "Hey did you know your car was an import"
    Shock hit me like a tone of bricks jesus an import how'd that happen wasn't the kinda import i was looking for but waow a year of ownership and i find out its an Import... Import from where its not exactly odd looking right hand drive all the stickers are english with the obligatory german as well the Log book says the first owner was in blackburn i think aint looked at it so when did it become an import.


    Anyone got any idea's on this cos im at a loss

    I heard that the large Car Supermarkets can import right-hooker cars from Cyprus, meaning that when you go to main dealers to order parts via your reg, computer says no.
