You may be added the TAX and customs (10%+19%)?
With registration i mean TÜV, Paperwork (Datenblatt) and labour to get the van changed to german laws (lights front and rear, Exhaust, papers for special things like Suspension, rims, bumbers ......
If you let do it from an garage i think 5000 EU ist gone for it easy!
I got some offers from companies shipping it and rework it so that was the amount they took for the TÜV.
At least i made it for myselve but it was quite a bit work and the need of lights in front and rear (yellow flashers, and "E" prooft headlights)
flashers working with breaklights are forbitten nowerdays in germany, so you have to change the wiring. Took a while to find it out how it has to be done ;-)
