I think I will win this. A fella on here was going to scrap his Gtv but wanted some money for the private plate that ends in GTV. I bought it in November, with 4 months MOT and 5 months tax. I paid 250 for the car, complete with the private plate.....

A new MOT last month cost me under 300 quid.

Car Cost UK 2K
10% on 2K = 200
14% on 2,200k = 308
* If you don't have a resident contact in SA *1254
Customs 400
Customs Examination 62.5 - 125
Cargo dues 182

So with SA Resident/contact 3,185 - 16K = 12.8K Gross profit
*Without Contact/Resident 4,439 - 16K = 11.5K Gross profit

Looks attractive to me on paper! (Disclaimer: above calcs are quick guestimate and may miss other charges)(Possibly Ship Costs?)
I think you need to read it again....+50% & the shipping.

EDIT: Sorry re read you calcs but I wouldn't bother exporting anything other than a top spec model in very good condition. Shipping would be expensive & the price added before any taxes etc.

Also Ian Lusso was talking of a Phase3 3.2 not a cheap JTS.
