2011 Mustang GT in UK but thats it...

Postby KangaMan » Wed Oct 10, 2012 7:35 am

G'day guys,

I've been offered a stang thats in the UK near to me which has no taxes paid & nothing done for IVA.

Asking cost is 19k - It is a Sterling Grey 2011 Mustang GT. It has a 5.0L and a 6-speed.

Now I know there are alot of helpful pages, but could I ask for a rough estimate of additional costings please.

PS not hands on myself but have access to a mechanic, but do like to get things done properly ;)

Many thanks in advance! :D

What taxes have not been paid and what taxes have to be paid?
Has it been brought in by an owner who is not liable to pay taxes unless he sells it or something else?
You cannot register a car without a certificate that all taxes have been paid.
The electrical conversion is about £1000-£1500 or used to be.

yes check out the tax situation - if sold within one year of import it is liable for VAT -

For conversions try to catch trev before he buggers off to NZ - he can also help you on what you need to register it - he did all of mine when I came back from the US

Need more info on the seller. If it's a US VAT-exempt bubba - you are getting worked.
I can get a 2013 GT/CS imported/delivered to Norfolk for just short of £21k.

$33K equates to round about £21K, so how do yo do manage to ship it free and avoid the duty n VAT ........You should get a backer and bring a few in at the price.

What zip code you using, I used my Florida one and it lists it as $37k. (the basic GT starts at $34k) When the time comes for a new one I might just skip over the border and come down to that State and drive one back up.......A GT/CS list price is $41Canadian ($40k US).

I assume Expat means he can get a '13 landed for £21k, excluding taxes, which would need to be paid.

If he can get it for that, it's still better than £19k for an '11 model with, I assume, some miles already on it.


KangaMan, either way, this blows a big hole in your £19k budget :(

Suspect no taxes (vat or duty) have been paid....suspect serviceman...the car is UK registed in April this year & the IVA/SVA & light conversion have been done.
Being told to add 32% to invoice cost....thus making it a £25k stang...would you agree 15k on clock...small amount of engine mods - his words...'Boss 302 intake manifold, JLT cold air intake, and a tune - SCT tuner with 3 different tunes on it. Flowmaster Hushpower axe-back exhaust.'
The guy lives near to me aswell (70 odd miles)...
Seems OK from where i'm sitting unless I'm missing something? :o
Blows the budget but the 2011 stangs appear to give so much more....and the best stangs I could find where 18k+, even offered 21k for a 07 mussy to a member on here.
You guys that say plenty out there...well no there isn't to my liking...If i'm going to spent my hard earned cash then Grey it is...manaul...V8....low miles....thank you very much ;)

The twelve months thing is due to VAT being liable - you really need to check when and who needs to pay this.

You don't want to be in a situation where he is liable has not paid and they come after the car. Don't be frightened by this - just go and talk to a good accountant and they cand advise you

It seems like a really good buy - worth checking out if this is in the batch affected by the misfire and detonation issue and gearbox quality issues. I am sure Trev or Mike can help out here

OK,
I am VAT EXEMPT on vehicle imports (NATO posting). So no tax due from me...ever...and for that matter, I am VAT/duty exempt on anything posted to my official mailing address.
The pricing on that page is for Ford employee A-plan pricing...hell I only paid £31k for my Shelby delivered here. I keep telling you guys I have family in Dearborn at Ford HQ.

I really didn't mean to hijack this thread. Just trying to figure out if it this is someone in my type of scenario trying to make a quick buck. There are quite a few rules/restrictions when selling a car or transferring the title if it was brought over the same way I did it. Then I could pass along the convoluted restrictions, or things to watch out for.
