I am planning on bringing my mini cooper to spain with me soon as someone told me its the easiest way, instead of having to sell it and buy a new one over there. Something to do with needing documentation? However im wondering if this is the best idea? As the cost of transporting it will be around £600 and ive heard many people with uk plates get stopped by police for spot checks all the time and i dont want all that hassle. What is the deal with registering the car in spain? Is it an expensive/ lengthy process? And does anyone know of a transporting company which will shift it for less than 600?
