Re: Exporting vehicle and Household goods - Any Advice!

A fast estate car. Sporty? Undoubtably. Desireable? Yes, I'd have one. But a sports car? No, 'fraid not, in the same way that a hot hatch isn't a sports car either.

Re: Exporting vehicle and Household goods - Any Advice!

Re: Exporting vehicle and Household goods - Any Advice!

Re: Exporting vehicle and Household goods - Any Advice!
