Buying a Vehicle - Non Residents

Dave - many thanks - this is what we are hearing from others.

Renewing insurance would be the "acid test" for me - as someone said you needed the ID number to do that but I still think there could be a difference of interpretation between a car and a motorsiklet :)

if you can renew your insurance (anyone out there???) with no problem it would convince me to buy the bike and risk it!

You may say I am "tight" (that is classed as a compliment where I come from) but I don't want to budget 3000 YTL to buy a scooter and then find I have to pay a further 1000 YTL + 450 YTL per annum thereafter for residency to keep it on the road - it becomes much less cost-effective.

Ultimately at the moment I think I may have to do what they said in the Clint Eastwood movie "do I feel lucky"
