Default Getting a car over from Northern Ireland

What's the cheapest way?

I'm reluctant to drive it or have anyone else drive it due to the nature of the car. It's just not meant for long journeys.

Cars worth is 10k approximately

Anyone got any experience?

Since you didn't specify from where: Unless you're in Ireland I'm betting you need to put the car on a ferry rather than drive it.

What's the car?

I'm currently on a 3000 mile sojourn in my S - 33 mpg so far touring. It does distance perfectly fine .

Drive it. You'll just need a couple of breaks to stretch your legs. You'll be fine

I certainly have mileage anxiety, my AP2 has 88k, I piked it up several months ago at 82k, I am putting 500 miles a week on it. My worry is how long the motor will last as I do a lot of spirited driving. I hardly ever drove my previous cars this hard. You all think I can get another 100k on it?

Regular service and tlc, should be ok but I’m sure someone with high mileage experience will be along.

It’s a Honda, and built to be used.
