Just pondering all the threads on here reference BFGing your car, and reading between the lines, if you bring a car in from the UK that YOU own, YOU insure and YOU have paid tax on it, why does it need to be BFG'd?!! It seems to be an excuse to make a soldiers life as difficult as possible - BFG offices dont seem to helpful nor speedy so: 1. I cant drive drive it after 30 days - WHY? Its insured (including for Europe) It belongs to me. I own it. Ive had continental headlights fitted. I will drive it, thank you. 2. It has to have a BFG plate. WHY? Security? It's still a british plate. 3. Perks? Fuel coupons. Big deal. 4. Cons? More than it seems to be worth!! I can see the attraction of buying a tax free car, but one that l own, and have owned for 7 years, whats the issue?
