Hi, can anyone offer any advice on what is required to bring a second-hand car in from the UK especially right hand drive?

I have a German-registered 21-year old BMW in the Algarve that is working perfectly but only worth about €500 in Germany. However, to matriculate it in Portugal (make it acceptable to drive in Portugal) would cost about €5,000!!!

Sick and sad but this is Portugal's way of protecting its automobile sector.
