Selling car from UK in Central Asia

Hi
I would like to travel to central Asia or even further to India/China by car. I would like to use the most economic option to travel so i have a question. Anybody know if it is profitable to sell somewhere there a car? Petrol price in Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan is pretty good. I heard that u can sell the car and it will be enough to pay for returning ticket to Europe.
Anybody have experience with that?

Its a popular past time for Russians to buy cars in Japan and then drive them back West to Moscow - usually high end vehicles that maintain their price.

Check which countries require a CDP as they wont be easy to sell in, plus all the hassles of getting your CDP deposit back - if you paid duties???

There are a few threads with info on CDP requirements, but Google maybe your friend.

Hi. It is easy to sell a car in Kyrgyzstan. Most liked: Japanese left hand drives, any german, also lefties. No french, no italien (what a bummer). Best years for customs is under 10 years.

CHeers.
