I think someone already told me this but here goes what is the import duty, road tax and insurance going to cost for my car, R reg 1997 BMW Z3 1.9cc 134,000 miles I cant claim as personal, as I wont have had it a full year till October. Which means I will have to put a years road tax on it as its due in March, also insurance is up for renewal, the same day I would have had it a year.
Cheers

I believe the qualification for personal imports is 6 months not a year. UK road tax is irrelevant, you need to tax it here also you will need MOT. Just as in the UK and probably everywhere the insurance cost is not solely based on the car but many personal factors such as driver age, accident record, no claims bonus etc.

Thanks Pete, my plan is to move out to Paphos in July, will my current amount of no claims bonus count in Cyprus, or do I have to start all over again.

I would bring proof of the no claims bonus with you and negotiate with it. You should successfully retain some if not all of it. If a company refuses go elsewhere, there are many companies.

The road tax is calculated on emmission. 0,5 per gram for the first 120 gr/km. 3 per gram between 121-180 gr/km and 8 per gram over 180

Our car and home contents insurance is with Abbeygate, although our medical insurance is with Atlantic (we will probably take our car and home contents insurance out with Atlantic when they are due for renewal).

Anyway, I ensured that I brought my Direct Line proof of no claims letter with me and it was accepted by Abbeygate. Clearly the cost is down to individual factors including the type and value of car, but I found the cost of our car insurance in Euros to be around what I was paying in sterling to Direct Line, so slightly cheaper here. Why not contact the companies for an individual quotation?

Gan Direct can give an online quote which I've always found a bit more expensive than others.

Our insurances are all through Topquotes who we've found satisfactory and always match any lower quotes. They also usually answer emails!
