Hi,

Just bought a Amazon 100. My insurer wont insure it.
I now believe it's an import. Details were not disclosed.
There is nothing on car stating gx or vx.
There an I'd plate under bonnet.
Is there a way of identifying vehicle or
anyone had this issue before.
Many thanks.

There could be a number of reasons why they won't insure it, but cannot see why they won't because of it being imported
as there must be a lot in the country, but if it is imported will it not show on the V5c (I have never had a import so I don't know)

What I would do is recontact the insurance company and ask why

But a idea for the group is put as much info in the profile Colum  as possible, as this helps people who try and help with the info

You could always try another company

If it's an import it will probably be an HDJ101 instead of a 100, that's the only difference, but the simple thing is to look for another insurer, I've had loads of imports in Surfs and Land cruiser form, and never had problems insuring them.

Thanks for relpys guys,

Tried two so far. Churchill and admiral. Both same issues. Spoke with admiral. The said computer says no. No reason given.
After more digging, looks like I may not have been registered correctly. It shows as a manual when put into system.
They also ask if it's GX or VX. No badges or mentioned in log book.

Vin- JTEHC05J904000307

It does show variant in log book. HDJ100(N) and version HDJ100R-GNPEZW(2C)
No model info.

If anyone can decipher vin, that would be great. I'll talk to DVLA tomorrow.

I'm thinking VX as it has electric leather seats. Wood around gearbox and doors.
Tilt and slide sunroof. Unless imports are not comparable model wise.

It's this https://toyota-europe.epc-data.com/land_cruiser/hdj100r/8926/

https://www.toyodiy.com/parts/g_E_1999_TOYOTA_LAND%20CRUISER_HDJ100R-GNPEZW.html

And it says Europe, so not a Japanese import.

Well done for finding. It's a 2000 year.
To update logbook I need an official letter from toyota.
They have found it and hopefully will send details.
Yes VX as confirmed from Cyprus.

You should also find a year stamp on the seat belts.
