I will have owned it for 10 months when we move
How strickt is an MFK? It passed its last MOT with some welding, but no other advisories but it is a transit van of a certain age (11 years).

I have also read about needing Certificates of Conformity for importing vehicles which aren't standard, but as I did the conversion myself I don't have one.
As it's a personal import with moving here it might be possible, book an MFK test only costs 56 chf in ZH & see what they say, not a lot to loose. If it turns into a nightmare then sell in the UK.
The MFK is not that different in most respects to a UK MOT except non standard is a big no no & the engine must be clean with no sign of any oil leaks.

Good luck
