It's all fairly simple. Import using an agent. There is one in Hallen, Avonmouth, Bristol. 

You will need the speedo converted, a rear fog light and that's about it besides registering it with the dvla. 


All the forms are easy ish to complete. It's the tax rating you might have to fight and getting it EU approved for emissions to get a lower tax bracket.
