I did my research and if you want certain cars like an Audi or something similar then you pay a lot in Malta as they are all imported just like any other car on the Island and there is a markup. Driving it down means you end up actually saving a few thousand. its not a huge amount, but enough. plus my wife and I are taking a holiday break during relocation and we are driving down over a 2-3 week period. Hence the idea. |
Double check the import duty if you're buying something like an Audi. Its based on emissions, so it can be crippling. I used to have a 2010 M3 which was going to cost me 29,000 euros to import!!
(p.s. I miss that car
I ended up getting a 320d eD, which was almost new and it cost 4,500 euros to import. Definitely check this import duty, as its not just new cars that it affects.
Apologies if you're one step ahead of me
