    if you bring a car from the states (or canada :hsugh:) to there country it has to pass inspections. Just like you have to pass inspections when you bring it here.


    I have heard the European/Japanese standards are very high and many vehicles dont pass the emissions test.

    Even if you do import acar to europe, it may have to go through inspections and then it would have to be brought up to there standards (if it didnt meet)


    And if it broke down getting parts may be hard.

    most of the tests get waived for us in belgium, my car would be all kinds of not legal to drive on the roads here, if I were a belgian

    and I already know what's required to drive a car here, I am looking for shipping companies :hsugh:

    I'm trying to remember the name of the company that I used - was right there in the AIU office at Mainz-Kastel. Here's their address:

    AIU Insurance agency at Ludwig-Wolker-Str. 12 in Mainz-Kastel.

    That was my insurance agent when I was over there 8-9 years ago, dangerous as hell to get in and out of since that was kind of the main road between Wiesbaden and Mainz.

    The stamp thing is strange. I think I've had a similar scenario, but have forgotten the particulars. It's like the person insists to you in so many words that they will "give" you something, "out of the kindness of their hearts," you're willing to buy from them, that they have plenty of, but are going to with hold from you just enough to prevent you from completing what you set out to do.











    Wait, we ARE pulling in random bits of text in this thread, right?

    This is no different than the college kids who grad and then buy themselves a new car, as if somehow they have earned it. Most have student loans and then heap a car loan on top. What is $200k+ in loans without a house? Stupid.

    I can't tell if he is trolling or just posting his thoughts.

    some people don't even wait that long. we had one kid who blew most of his USAA loan on a G35 and an Iphone and another that was gonna blow it all on a Ford Ranger until he didn't get approved for the loan. College kids aren't money smart, and I'm in that club. I'm about to drop $600 on a car that needs a fair amount of work to get it in good shape again.
