Re: Help needed with a turkish plated car purchased abroad

My suggestion would be to bung it back in the auction. The 48 M plate is from Muğla (Bodrum/Marmaris area). Yes 'M' plates are for all foreigners, even if the car was from a dealer. There are also restrictions on who can drive 'M' plated cars in Turkey, (only the owner of immediate family).

Re: Help needed with a turkish plated car purchased abroad

Your problem has to be documentation.

Unless you can show ownership here in Turkey and are able to transfer to someone here then Turkey is a no no for selling, as no one here would buy it.

Great suggestion Not! Don't learn from a mistake, an ill judged decision, pass the problem on, create some misery & expense for somebody else to worry about

Re: Help needed with a turkish plated car purchased abroad

I suppose I could get straight back to the auction (transport is 150, auction fees 299, final price less 1600 as it will now be advertised as Turkish/outside of EU etc). Quite a big hit I'd say..
Or try to register it here but most likely will not be able to get a Euro4/Euro5 emission proof as in a European Certificate of Conformity now knowing the vehicle was not built to EU specifications. Catalytic converter exhausts cost a lot so manufacturer's not bothered to install where it is unnecessary.
This means road tax will most likely be outside the usual table margin. Either way it is a risk.
There is probably a slim chance the registered keeper is not eligible for tax free purchase and tax was paid upon initial purchase vehicle is quite new and very low kilometres hence it was most likely purchased new from a Turkish dealership. I wonder if I could trace back this registered keeper and see if we can reason something out to minimise both our losses so he can take his car back or transfer to a third party for more and I could receive just enough funds to purchase the same vehicle from the EU.
And before anyone says it I know this is a beautiful dream in an ideal non existent world

Re: Help needed with a turkish plated car purchased abroad

Have you asked the Auction owners if they will take it back & refund your monies? The car may be stolen, have a word with your local plod.

It is definitely not stolen as it was sold at the direction of the police. If I rattle nest a bit maybe I could also get the proof of this but I know that if needed (say someone somewhere sometimes comes claiming otherwise) the UK police will back this up no matter what.

Auctioneer said it is not their fault. Vehicle was sold as seen and not advertised as TR /?EU / non EU or whatever else. Blind parking lot attendant's description does not count and a visit should have been made prior to bidding but we were busy at work and could not get there in time

Do you know for a fact that it was sold at the direction of the Police, or are you relying on what the auctioneer has told you?

The Action house must have documentation that substantiates what they are claiming, the Police don't just phone up & ask them to sell vehicles.

Re: Help needed with a turkish plated car purchased abroad

Sorry to hear you've been tucked up. Off to Trading Standards Office; ask if the sale was misrepresented. Don't waste your time arguing with the vendor, who has a vested interest in not taking back the goods.

If I buy something second hand which, when I get home, is not suitable, I feel free to sell it on. Not all purchasers are in the same position, for example I never had to change headlights or speedometer, but it was a while ago. Maybe the next purchaser wishes to take it out of the UK and register it somewhere else.

This isn't something that just isn't Suitable, doesn't fit, isn't quite the right colour, size! This is a bl&&dy big Headache that needs to be sorted, Not passed on.
