UK - buy car locally or import from EU

Hi all,

I'm belgian and have my car still in belgium (Renault Clio - 11 years
old). I will be moving to London beginning of September and was
thinking driving over my car.
The car has no speedometer that indicates the speed in miles (only in
km) and this has to be amended according to VCA.
Cars are apparently expensive in UK - also second hand ones.

Could anyone pls advise if
- buying a (secondhand) car is still expensive in UK?
- it's better to take over my belgian car and have the speedometer
adapted (hope that is all) or buy a car in UK?

Any other info/advise is welcome

Buy in the UK.
Cars are cheap and getting cheaper. Plus you will find it a pain in the **** driving left hand drive in the UK.
