Can you advise if a third party (removable) fibre glass canopy (with windows) later fitted to the Ford Ranger double-cab pick-up will constitute a "fixed top" . I am considering importing my 3.2 l diesel Ford Ranger from Australia and obviously excise duty will be a major consideration. Emissions on this car are about 240gm/100km).

Having undertaken the procedure 28 months ago through Limassol I must say this is a most refreshing story. What still puzzles me is if there is a difference between importing your car as part of your household move and importing your car as an import from a Union country in which duty has been paid.

Hello all,

I joined just to ask a single question and I could really appreciate any help anyone has to offer.

How does the emissions certificate in step 1 of the original post get issued ? Do they compare it against a database and the V5 or do they run a separate technical check on the car to be registered?

Many thanks in advance.

Cheers,
Evros

I have not yet imported the cars I want from uk but was advised that the V5 was enough to get the emissions from and obviously the log book! Hope that helps; that was from an agent in Cyprus who will help me with the importation of said vehicles..

Hi Evros,

The answer to your question is that they check it against the manufacturers' data online. They do NOT run a separate emissions check...
