Thanks for the advice! Up to 70%?! That is high... Maybe too high for me to invest

Have fun with the customs guys at Limassol when they get here!!! Make sure you order the EU certified items AND ENSURE THAT NICOSIA HAVE DEALT WITH THIS MODEL BEFORE - otherwise you will have fun and games when it comes to registering them for road use - with or without EU certification it is a potemtial minefield. Even with certification make sure speedos etc are in kms and not mph and so on .....

Hi there, the shipping and clearing process is generally quite quick from China to Europe, just be very careful who you give your money to. There are extremely high import duties on chinese imports to Cyprus up to 70% of declared value. You will also need CE certification for anything from outside the EU and certificates of conformity, emissions certificates, and various other paperwork, speak to an experienced clearing agent in Cyprus who will help you gop in to any transaction with your eyes wide open.
