I am currently in working in the UK. I am a dutch citizen and I am
also a South African citizen. South Africa is an incredibly expensive
place to buy a car, new or second hand. This is due to the virtual
monopoly in that country of the car market by the company Barloworld.
I would like to purchase a car in Europe which I would like to then
take with me to South Africa to use a vehicle there. Ideally I would
like a car with a right-hand side steering-wheel(South African's drive
on the left side of the road) And I will get a car that is common in
South Africa(and ironically may even have been manufactured there)

What are the requirements/best way to achieve this? What are laws
governing this in South Africa and Europe regarding taxes and tariffs
and what is the most cost effective way for me to make this happen?
Time is not a great issue so this could happen in a year/6 months or

For this question to be answered properly I'd idealy like a
comprehensive answer which I could use a step by step guide to making
this happen along with relevant contacts/websites etc...
