  1. Hi Alex, which insurance company did you use in the end - I'm currently in the mix for a decent insurance quote on my imported Alphard and struggling. Thanks, Chris
  2. Thanks for response Alex, so underseal is a must but is wax& oil advisable? I've been using Hallen Imports for the work - are they reliable / more expensive? Is their an alternative near Bristol you would recommend? Also I've been told that if I put a new infotainment system [radio / sat-nav etc] that this may not work with the hybrid system [as current Japanese system shows indicators for electric & fuel etc]. Thanks, Chris
  3. Hi Folks My long awaited Alphard imported from Japan has finally arrived and is currently in garage being prepared for UK readiness. A couple of things I need to check out: * Does the van require underseal / wax & oiling to protect the underneath from sea salt rusting? Garage are quoting me £385 for both to be done * All of the Infotainment on screen are in Japanese - need to use Google Translate on phone to understand how it works - is there a UK conversion kit I can get installed - my Alphard is Hybrid so not sure if this has any bearing on this. Many thanks, Chris
  4. I'm currently in the process of importing a new Alphard from Japan through Algys Imports - I was a bit dubious about them at first because once I had paid the initial deposit I didn't hear anything from them for ages and had to keep chasing them until I eventually got the information I needed. Their communication with the customer is really poor but it appears to have paid off as my Alphard has arrived in UK and about to be picked up this week by Hallen Imports in Bristol. If all is as it seems I should have saved myself at least £2k I hope.
