Hi everyone and nice to meet you,
I am planning to move to Bucharest at the end of this month and wanted to ask a few questions regarding bringing a car to Romania.
I went through several threads and believe that nothing has changed in the space of the pollution tax having to be paid but I am still thinking about driving to Romania with my car. I have a lot of stuff that I need to move with me so it would make things much easier for me. Unfortunately I was unable to complete the calculation of the pollution tax (It is in Romanian unfortunately) so could I possibly ask someone for a very rough estimation? I am driving a 2002 Honda Civic 1.7 CTDI (EURO 3).
May I also ask if anyone has used the option of using the car for up to 6 months with a foreign license+tax? Theoretically it should be legal but has anyone had problems with that?
I would like to ensure the car in Poland and drive on my Polish license plates. I will have to get the residency straight after arriving in Romania. Is it ok if I leave Romania for any country for a day and the 6 month rule is then restarted? How is the fact that the car left the country established when I am stopped by police? Do I take a photo with the car and the foreign street sign?
Also could I ask about the winters in Romania? I have a set of winter tires but these might not fit into the car for the move - will I be ok with summer tires only during the winter(wouldn't be in Poland)?
Finally in the case of me having to sell my car - would it be really hard to sell a Polish-registered car without the Romanian tax?
I would greatly appreciate your responses.
