I can help out with a friendly, English speaking insurer here in France (ALLIANZ group), who I am sure would insure the car as a French car which you can use for a limited time in the UK/Ireland until you register and re-insure there.  I think he can use an EU address for the policy (he did before I moved here permanently)

Hi Frank

Curious why you want to buy in France, are you planning to keep the car reg in France and use it there mainly?

Frank, I understand...

Normandy (within easy reach for a summer camping weekend with the family, take in some D Day memorials) - Lancia - within budget:

The reason I asked is that I always had the impression that France was expensive for second hand cars.

I guess Simon and others can give us a more realistic view on that however.

Depends what you're looking for, condition and time of year..........

They seem to keep everything for ever......lots of stuff out there to restore, way more apparently than in UK/Italy

While I am not anticipating importing, I can say that the south of France is good hunting ground for cheap post Fiat Lancias. I bought a rust free 100,000 mile Delta 1.6GTi.e. with 21 months MOT (France has 24 month tickets..) for the price of a new windsurfer on the jolly old leboncoin. Then I bought a set of NordAuto roof bars for the car for the price of a cheap lunch, and three windsurfers of varying sizes all in good working order with sails etc for dinner for 2.... All I had to do for my own peace of mind was to put a new tyre on the spare wheel. All the other 4 had good Michelins on.

By law cars have to be sold with a minimum of 12 (?) months MOT (unless it is being broken). I understand that no salt is used down in the South west Med (Minervois so cars just wear out rather than rust out).

All useful info, I must chase up one or two sellers, I missed a very nice v6 FIAT this am.

So even a private seller must have a car MOTed before selling?

Simon has also provided some useful tit bits....hoping to move things on

You see some outrageous stuff in my local paper. I have a 1997 126,000 mile diesel Xantia and saw the equivalent in the local paper for 3500 euros. Just before we came over we picked up a full history 40,000 mile petrol Xantia for 700 in mint condition. After running it here for two years we sold it for 1800 euros.  I don't know if things have changed in the UK but a 17 year old high mileage Xantia would almost be a giveaway to someone in the family. Having said that, I don't know which attitude is best. I've worked with people in the UK who consider anything over 2 years old as an 'old banger'. There is something about the way the French buy a car and stick with it.

Gentlemen of the forum, can anyone up-date me on the hurdles which must be overcome to buy/export a Lancia from Italy?

Do dealers provide temporary insurance to those cars being exported if being driven, does it include an assistance component like they do in France? Costs associated with an export?

Any and all info welcomed

Hi Frank,

Please refer to topic "importing a Thesis" under Thesis model header. Insurance is extremely difficult (nigh on impossible)to obtain unless you have an Italian address or you can do as I did which was to get it through my employers fleet insurance- see "Insuring a Thesis" under Insurance header. Sorry not very good with links!

Regards,

Paul.

Hi Paul, thanks for reply.

Am hoping as a classic vehicle it will be a bit easier, not sure if details on the link above are still correct about exporting with reg plates still on car with proviso that you send them back!

They are familiar with exporting classic, so hoping it can get sorted.

I believe also that breakdown insurance offered in UK is only valid if journey starts and ends in UK, does anyone know a way around this?
