Now he didn't have to sva test it because it was a English made car , does anybody know what other cars fall into this bracket is it only English made cars or European that don't need to be sva tested when importing them back to the uk.
If a car was made in Japan, it wont be road legal on UK roads. Items such as rear foglamps etc wont be installed as standard. I'm assuming your friends Land Rover had all UK spec items already installed. I'm not sure if the Land Rover was ever sold in Japan so my experience is limited, but if he bought it there it was obviously made to our (UK) specification....if that makes sense, lol.
