Well, in that case, enjoy getting ripped off by our home-grown cowboys!jdf said:I would imagine trying to ring previous owners, or testing the provenance of any service record would be quite an ordeal. I'm not one for trusting people who try to sell me stuff (even when I make the approach) so the inability to check what they tell me independently is why I will never take this route to "cheaper" motoring.
Visit http://www.555club.com/ , it's the Irish Subaru Drivers Club website, they'll be happy to give you whatever help/advice you need.Alan Moore said:1)I'd put a call into the service department in your local Subaru agent to ensure they can get their hands on parts for same.

Customs don't want to deal with the public so you have to go through an agent.This aget costs about 300 euro in total.Customs also charge a fee( for cars outside europe)This is based on the price you paid for the car.Its calculated as follows: 10% of the price you paid.This is then added to the price you paid and 25%(I think) of this total is calculated.This is the figure you have to pay.
Is it a new model Colt or an Old model surely new for that kind of money?Squonk said:Just to expand this thread if I may....I'm looking at getting my wife an automatic car (she can't drive 'real' cars...women!). Anyway, I've looked at a Mitsubishi Colt 1300 in a garage. 40K miles, 2003, €11k. However, its a Japanese Import. Any advice? Is this deal Ok or should I run a mile. The Japanese import makes me worry in terms of servicing and resale value.
