Thanks for the replies.
[QUOTE=mr.xpowerseller;3972649]First you would have to figure out if Canada will even allow you to export the vehicle and if Spain will allow you to import it. There may be an outright ban on all vehicles under a certain age. .[/QUOTE
Thanks, I've done that.
[QUOTE=mr.xpowerseller;3972649]Most likely this would be a highly cost prohibitive venture. Ocean Freight alone would be somewhere around $2-4000 (USD) ONE WAY. Then you have tax, duty, ect.. on top of that..[/QUOTE
Well, in my case the cost of the freight is not an issue, fortunately.
[QUOTE=mr.xpowerseller;3972649] I'd be willing to bet the Spanish don't like big a$$ SUV's on their roads, so they will tax you heavily for registration and/or road tax.
You would be best off selling the truck before you leave and get a more fuel efficient sedan in Spain.[/QUOTE
Actually I have a big gaz guzzler SUV and am looking at downsizing to a smaller,more fuel efficient 320 CDI.
I am hoping to get an estimate of the mods necessary to register the 320 CDI there.
