Does anyone have definitive information on how to import an HZJ78 into the UK?

I think I can:
(i) buy from a German distributor I've found, who have the car imported and Euro5 compliant, but it's expensive (and lhd)
(ii) get a <10 year old one and have it SVA approved, BUT I understand that most LandCruisers would not pass the emissions tests and therefore it would fail, and so that's not a good route
(iii) get one with a Certificate of Conformity to make it easy to pass the approvals test - i.e. buy one made for another EU country and import it - but where do I buy a vehicle with one of those from? Website links helpful!

Can I buy it from the UAE/Turkey - am assuming I can but it would be older Euro standard and so fail SVA, so not much use?

Can I buy it from Japan and import it directly? Does anyone have a contact with a Japanese exporter they recommend? Or can I use Toyota in Japan directly?

(rhd is preferred, but lhd would be ok.  New is preferred, or very recent s/h).

thanks!
