Hi all,

Anyone had experience of buying a AUC car through a main dealer in NI from England?

Ie, any different requirements, getting vehicle back to mainland etc?.

Dealer in question is JKC Coleraine, so any specific feedback on them would also be appreciated!

Cheers

Andrew

No issues at All, I bought my car from Bavarian, You can switch the NI plate to uk but beware it loses the previous owners from log book, this was the case on my old M3, other than that and they have 4 yrs to first mot, itís no different to buying in uk.
