Is There Any Such Thing as Cheap Japanese Car Insurance?

Importing a car is something that is becoming increasingly popular these days, especially from Japan. The so called grey imports are usually very well looked after and the Japanese take great pride in them knowing that their resale value is very much dependent on the condition of the car when they come to sell it.

The Part Exchange Market in Japan is Huge Because of Two Reasons:

1) The government has a 10-year lifecycle policy for all cars on the road in Japan. Anything past this is deemed inefficient, dirty and un-ecological.

2) The specifications of Japanese cars are much higher than the equivalent models bought and sold here in the UK market.

Makes Sense!

So if the cars themselves are high spec, looked after and mustn't be driven, there isn't much else to be said as to why they are desirable to us over here.
