A final point, UK sellers will want the battery lease with RCI signed over to you, and this can be a problem to arrange. Do persevere, as the car is a beauty at the price.
yes the RHD is something to get used to.
Changing Headlamps is also clear, but as far as I know they are identical to the ICE versions - in contrast to the rear - and hence rather cheap to get as a replacement/repro (~220€ / pair) compared with e.g. Leaf / Zoe where you may need to buy OEM parts at insane prices.
For transporting a car from UK to Stuttgart we are talking the distance in the UK to Newcastle / Hull / Dover + ~ 600km on the continent.
Finding a car in germany or france is not that much nearer.
Is it possible to switch the display from miles to km in the setup?
Are there 1 or 2 rear fog lights / indicators (on the continent it has to be left or doubled).
Autotrader I know, and routinely the "shower" (what does that mean?) in grimsby has the lowest prices and isnear toa ferry port.
But as he is no official dealer he will not offer a guarantee which might be a problem for a car that is 1 month short of the 5 years.
Also I read the recent mails about what he offered for the cars to the seller.
So Grimsby: Higher price and less history...
Changing RCI contract might take some additional time, but based on experiences of others sourcing ZOEs in france is not really a problem and will be handled between the RCI divisions.
