Oh, yes, sirree, yesterday we finally managed to get all our paperwork together and pay the final fees to the DGV for our motorbike which we brought down from the UK last year. We are now the proud owners of 96-DQ-80!!

Would I do it again?

Not on your life!

About €400 and a lot of trials and tribulations and WAITING. And that doesn't include insurance, tax or fee for new numberplate.

Very proud of us, but I would not recommend it to anyone.

So if you are thinking about inporting a motor vehicle, think again.

If you're still wanting to, drop me a line (auntyems2001@yahoo.com) and I can walk you through what we did. Bear in mind that this was for a motorbike and that the procedure for a car maybe different.

Cheers me dears.

And what's with this weather? I didn't come to Portugal to sit on my arse in the rain...

No, not a classic, but a freebie! We'd rather have something with a bit more get up and go and more comfy pillion seat (for my every expanding bottom), but it's goof to have it here and now it's legal.

Yeah, really dull and frustrating process, lots of hanging around (in the rain too as we had a noise test done on it up at Coimbra airfield and it was pissing it down!) and money handed over. Not worth it unless a) bike a real gem, b) it was free!
