hello there

Im brand new to this site. I was just googling to try and find some advice as to how importing may work

Im based in the UK and sadly we wont be getting the Z. we are stuck with the ugly AF 4 series coupe, the bmw Z4 lady hairdresser (why didnt they build the Z4 concept it looked amazing!) and the supra

SO im looking at options to importing one. Either from the US, Japan?

basically I guess an order needs to be put in with a dealer then shipping, but then all the hassle of passing UK/ european standard to get it on the road

Any advice please, websites/ companies who specialise in all of the stuff- and can do end to end? how hard is it to do this? can i place an order with a dealer overseas?

thanks in advance

Hi,
I work for TopRank Importers. We specialize in importing and exporting vehicles. We helped international customers acquire the R35 GT-R when it came out, and I'm sure we will have people contact us for exporting the new Z.

Do you guys have any laws regarding the age of the car? In the U.S. I believe its 25 years and 15 for Canada.

This is correct. To import a vehicle into the US it must be 25 years old, or qualify for Show and Display, which means the vehicle must provide some form of historical or technological significance.

Youll be importing from Japan for right hand drive unless you find a dirt cheap used one in US

I forgot to mention theres a 20% VAT and 10% import duty. A car costing £30k would command up to £9k to clear.

Or you could go live in Japan for 12 months while owning the car and move back with it for discounted less than 5% duty just the shipping costs. Unless I read wrong. A bit extreme but if you have cash you could save yourself £9000+ and sit there for 12 months lol
