    Technically you are importing a car from another country as an individual which is not allowed.

    Did your partner research the import /export rules before purchasing the car?

    Should have done the research before you bought it, guess you'll have to sell it again.

    Japanese cars are not allowed to be registered in South Africa. You can import a car from Lesotho to South Africa easy just not the Japanese imports.
