Spanish cars in the UK

The British police are having a clampdown on Brits taking Spanish registered cars back to the UK for more than 6 months in a year, they have records of sightings of foriegn registered vehicles and are impounding vehicles that appear to have been in the the UK over the allowed time without being reregistered. People who do this are evading UK road tax and possibly an MOT test on the vehicle, if you do intend to use your Spanish car in the UK on a regular basis, it is probably a good idea to keep some Spanish invoices and reciepts for petrol, repairs, carparking etc, for the vehicle as proof of periods it was in Spain.
So if you use your Spanish car in The UK for more than 6 months is is probably more feasable to have a British car and and use it in Spain.....
