Are you from chechnya? russia?chechnya said:Are you in North America mrgq? If so, theres no point. Chances are the cars dont meet federal pollution regulations. I tried to import a BMW diesel from Sweden but the safety standards and pollution emissions werent good enough for the USA.
Many here in the US have had that exact same experience with the Skyline. They destroy them right there on the dock, I've heard. Brings tears to my eyes.Rock-N-Roll said:Want to save time? Take a few grand, walk into your bathroom, flush all your money down the toilet.
You can easily get someone to sell you one. You can easily get it to a port in the US. You can easily get it unloaded from the boat.
And you will never, ever get it any further.
These are words from painful (and very expensive) experience.
Seriously, they don't actually destroy them on the dock. They DO sieze them and sell them at auction FOR EXPORT ONLY.bassfisher said:Stupid question, why?
I don't doubt for a minute but wonder why they destroy instead of selling for duties or taxes?
Ten years back, we imported 'grey market' used japanese tractors. Lots of paper work and bonding, but we could land a Kubota 4WD tractor for a quarter the cost of a retail new unit. LOL, learned that a used item in japan becomes an insult and must be thrown out or destroyed.
Talk about your ideal consumer society living the american dream!!!
