    Default Buying a Car in Spain

    Hi There - We are planning to move to Cabo Roig in the near future and will want to get a car (New or Second Hand).

    Can anyone advise what we need to do with regards to :

    a) Purchasing - Do we need anything more than NIE
    b) Registering the vehicle
    c) Road Tax
    d) Anything Else

    As you will no doubt know rules here in Spain can change daily and be different in Torrevieja as to Orihuela Costa. So the simple answer is ask the dealer what he wants. If he thinks he will lose a sale you will be surprised how many rules can disappear. We bought a secondhand car from Gold Car rental in Torrevieja last year. Very simple NIE, copy of Padron and Insurance Certificate ( obtained after we decided to buy it ) but he said he needed to see before we were allowed to drive it away. Oh and money! They did all the paper work

    If you are coming to Cabo Roig try Auto Roig it is a Spanish owned company run by 2 english men James & Darren, they did us a good deal all the paperwork and I am sure all we needed was NIE , Passport and driving licence.

    Smile buying A car in spain

    My advice would be to buy brand new second hand car are always over priced. All the car dealers are in torre and most will give you a good deal. Good luck with your with your move out here.

    Default Cabo Roig

    My last car was bought from Costa Cars near La Zenia on the N332and what a pleasant experience it was too.

    I had one to part exchange so did all the usual car companies and settled where I found I was getting the best deal... The car was picked up and in every respect looked new. One of the things I was also was looking for, was a good after sales service...and my experiences up to date is that I made a very wise choice.. And they will attend to servicing / repairs etc., and supply a loan car if required.
