Red face Importing a car to Italy

Hello

Does anyone have knowledge of how one imports a car into Italy? I am now registered as a Resident and have a RHD Saab with French plates (front headlamps are already adjusted to European standard). My Italian is still rather dodgy so if you know someone who could expedite this for me, I would be obliged.

Many thanks

But pay attention because there are two places with the name "Rapino" in Abruzzo. One of them is near Teramo.

Wow - I've just noticed that you guys have responded in the wee hours of the morning - insomnia or after crazy late parties...?

Where are you guys based, out of interest. I'm in south Chieti, Abruzzo.

Hi Annelise
I cant find his card, but if you contact an Englishman Roy Freezer-0039 0871898515 who lives in Pretoro not far from Rapino, he will be able to put you in contact with him. I am back in NZ at the moment and the details are at our house in Poggiofiorito. Hope this helps.

Many thanks David. Most kind of you - I will do as suggested.

Hope you're having great weather in NZ? I'll buy you a drink when you're next in Italy!

Best regards

Annelise
