Importing Cars to Turkey

I am looking to bring my car to Turkey. I travel to Turkey for around 2-3 months every summer to Istanbul and Bodrum area.

My wife is originally from Turkey so we spend a lot of time in Turkey each year.

My question is:

How do I import my car to Turkey for those 2-3 months each year? Could I take my car to Turkey for that time and then take my car back to the UK?

All help would be appreciated.

Looked at this myself and realised Turkey does all in its power to make it virtually impossible, or at least financially disastrous. Probably better to buy a cheapie here. 


On a more positive note I opted for a motorcycle- first a scooter, later a 700cc Honda. 

Not relevant for you but maybe instructive of how things work here. Buying from a Honda dealer the service was remarkable- he arranged everything except insurance; delivered the documents and registration, number plate, etc to my local sigorta office within 3 days. 

Had not fully decided but did so at Honda Fethiye, took no money nor cheque book. No problem, he called my bank in Dalaman, manager stayed after hours; bike was loaded on truck, I joined it & we travelled the 50 km to bank where manager paid from my account. 

Me and bike delivered to my house. 2 hours from entering the dealership I was proud owner! When selling, business here can be done at lightning speed. 

HOWEVER… the opposite is true for local government; incredibly slow, complex, inefficient and frustrating.
