Yes thanks, the car arrived safe and sound and is now in my garage.
The Cyprus process is not difficult, per say, but as you would expect has some cultural differences.
Without Stan's inside knowledge and contacts I think it would be extremely difficult for a UK individual to achieve, especially with the unique 1st registration in Cyprus, personal import factor.
ithout Stan's inside knowledge and contacts I think it would be extremely difficult for a UK individual t
Happy to pen a short paragraph on the process and pitfalls with the caveat "Stan's element is invaluable during port authority and registration and is unique, related to considerably more than simple knowledge of paperwork and process".
Thanks again for all your help.

The photo shows Marcus with his new V40, left, holding up the ACE banner together with Guy Watkins from Ay Nik, who collected his new Focus ST3 at the same time.
From there we went to the Registration Office where Marcus' car was inspected and then registered. Total cost was €167 euros, (€150 for registration fee and €17 for road tax until the end of the year).
Then it was off to the number plate shop for a new set of Cyprus plates, €20 supply and fit.
