  1. hi guys,

    i'm after info really. I'm due to be mobilised to Fally in Jan 2011 for 3 months before going on H14. My wife wants a new car....can i/we buy a new car over there for use over here? How do i go about it? whats the crack etc etc?

    Is it a question of buying it out there for less money then paying tax upon bringing it to the UK or ?????
  2. I believe that you're not entitled to buy a tax free car. I'm sure you have to be posted to BFG for a minimum of 6 months, with a posting/assignment order, to take advantage of this, not just detached as it sounds like for you.

    There's some info here : Tax Free Car Sales : BFG Car Insurance
  3. Sorry - he's right, you are not entitled.................but you can buy an Ex-Registered car..........just as cheap and normally good models.
  4. well it was worth the question cheers guys.
