Re: Buy a car in the UK or Europe?
Looked into this myself recently for when i move back to the alps. In short its a bit of a pain in the arse to take a UK car simply because they drive on the wrong side of the road and whilst over taking, getting tickets etc is a bit of a chore it grinds on you after a while so purely from that standpoint i would go with a LHD.
Insurance ime is far better on the continent and in most cases you can insure the car then anyone is covered to drive it, can make premiums punchy but least anyone with a valid card can drive it. Generally they are not as anal about no claims and stuff.
I did another thread on them. If you can buy a LHD UK car then its a good deal especially if its a banger. Remember just because it passes uk mot etc it may fail EU one.
