Buying a Van with Paraguay plates in Colombia

Hi guys,

lots of information on this topic as I'm reading up on it, just not getting the whole picture here for my situation. We're hoping to buy a van with Paraguay plates in Colombia. As the plates of the van are registered in Paraguay we can't put ownership 'cedula' of the van in our name unless in Paraguay. So we would need to go to a notary and get a 'Poder' documument to give us the power of attorney over this vehicle. Up to here it's clear and sounds reasonable. However my questions are:

Problems leaving Chili as foreigner with Chilean car.

We are 2 Belgians , bought and registered our car in Santiago in December and travelling around. Now recently we,ve got 2 times problems at the border leaving Chili. On the 30/01/2017 when we were heading to Ushuaia and on 13/02/2017 when we crossed in Cerro Castillo from Puerto natales to Calfate.

On both occasions the customs wouldn't give us permission to leave Chili. There must be a rule which say that foreigners who are not registered as residents are not allowed to leave the country with their car. A domicilio or having a RUT is not enough.
