Looking for outright comfort in a car...

I am trying to identify the car that will provide the best possible ride quality for my wife who suffers from chronic pain due to multiple injuries.

So far she has found an Audi A3 and Audi A4 too hard, a Mercedes A 220 much better but with a seat that pushes her neck forward, a Volvo V40 R-Design with the best seat for her so far but too harsh a ride.

Perhaps you cannot say precisely what brand and model of car might be more suitable but the factors that overall might offer the best solution. Under consideration at the moment are a Volvo XC40 or XC60 and a Subaru Forester.

Thanks.

Costs to import a Range Rover Sport?

If I bring in a 2010 Range Rover Sport HSE worth £10,000, what will it cost me to have it taxed and all? If I change it to commercial what would the difference be?

Thinking of buying an old Toyota Hilux...

Hi,

I already have a car in my name for private use and I'm thinking of buying an old 2002 Toyota Hilux to have some fun driving an old truck. So, I have two questions: can I register its ownership without having a company? Can I purchase classic insurance for this Hilux?

Thanks in advance!!

VRT process for a moped from the UK?

I bought a 2019 50cc moped from the UK in January 2021 and it was brought over by an NI courier on 27 January. Price was £835 for the bike and it has 1,700km on it. I have VRT inspection on 4 March. The sale invoice is the courier’s business invoice with the UK seller's name, address and buyer's name and address on it.

Wondering what VRT process will be for this with new system after 1 January re VAT and customs. In addition re 30 days to register I had a heart attack on 15 January... Can this be an exceptional circumstances reason for not having it registered within 30 days? If the invoice had been dated for example in December 2020 would that make a difference?

Thanks

Should I upgrade a camper before import?

Hi,

I am considering importing a 2007 camper from Germany. It is rated '3 yellow sticker'; I presume that is for emissions. Should I pay to have it upgraded to '4 green sticker'? Would this have much of an effect on the extra charges added to the VRT?

Thanks
