LHD and car insurance
i recently acquired a ***** 145 , LHD which was imported from italy 4 years ago. the problem i had was with getting it insured because the model is a 1.9TD ( Diesel) and ***** never introduced this model to the UK. apparently the 145 was only ever 'petrol' in the UK. It has been accepted by the DVLA and registered here but because the model does not correspond with the car insurers ' boxes they have to tick' it was a nightmare to insure. i eventually did it though.
i bought the car because i am currently working in italy and i thought ' when in rome etc...' but can anyone recommend an insurer for such problems and one that gives good continental driving cover ?
