I need some assistance with the protocol in regards to importing vehicles...specifically used cars from Japan, and preferably right side drive.
I am considering purchasing a car from overseas ...however i am not the very least knowledgeable when it comes to importing. I want to verify whether or not it may make sense to ultimately do so or settle with buying here in The U.S.
Can anyone help me out? I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
(Highly anticipating positive feedback!)
I know there's a few companies in California that import cars from Japan
and help you take care of the regulations, but I'd recommend looking for
used cars that other people imported. There aren't too many but it's a lot
cheaper and a lot less of a hassle than bringing them over. Even if you
find one in Canada, it would probably be easier to bring over.
If you want the websites of the import companies though, just tell me, I think I have them bookmarked somewhere.
Depends what you want to import, sometimes it's just not worth it. There's
a local guy doing a RHD conversion on his integra, he bought the JDM Teg
front and used the firewall and other pieces and put them in his USDM car.
What some people do with skylines is they buy the chassis and drivetrain,
and then the body seperately from a US company, that way it's classed as a
kit car and doesn't have to follow the same safety and emissions
What are you trying to bring in?
