Importing - where do you get your vehicle services?

I can quite see it may be a lot cheaper to import, but where do you get your servicing done? Does it mean you have to go abroad each time, or do you have an agreement with a dealer in the UK?

We bought our Pilote MH in Germany, March 08 & to get the small problems done, we went to the factory in France, stayed over night in their car park with other Pilote owners.Repairs done 1st thing in the morning, had interesting couple of hours watching them build motorhomes.Then off on our holiday we went, no problem.

I agree with Gaspode and Woodhouseman that you don't need a CoC as such in order for first registration of your German import in the UK.

I did find that the detailed information on the CoC was very handy to help me complete the DVLA form-filling. So, I was glad to have insisted that the German dealer obtain a CoC for me anyway, despite his protests that it wasn't necessary.

See HERE for details.
