awesome cars and under 1 mill now.
Hell you can buy one in the states for 300k (NT) ship it over, bend over for taxing and it would still be 700k at the most... not bad for a car that does 300kph and does 0-100 in 4.5 seconds!.

import, honestly they are at rock bottom prices in the states now!.

thanks for tip!

most nice german cars are well taken care off (older/mature owners).

they are right a lot of c32 owners are young folks who cant afford a e55 lol.

thats why the ones i looked at was 1st owners and older/mature so there c32 are well taken care of and in mint condition hence the hefty price tag.

import huh :ponder: my wifes friend imported her MB from cali, cuz she knew some one that does it as a business. hefty tax but still great price vs local market. she sold it I was so mad :( I would of bought it.

Right on the money, same goes for RS4, RS6, M3......... basically all our treasured german cars :(
The audi allroads tend to be looked after, so thats a S4 in disguise, but they go for alot of $$$$$$.

Import, drive it for a year and sell it, rinse and repeat........ you can make money this way and get to drive your dream car.
Its actually my plan to do once our business starts running soothly.

Nice motor that..... just missing that supercharger!.

The only one on the market is the kleeman im afraid, i did my research into this a long time back!.
Otherwise go custom with a rotrex or similar, theres plenty of factorys that can make pipes to spec cheapily and nicely, the problem is finding someone to remap your car.
Thats the one problem with taiwan, they have ALL the bits and for a cheap price..... its just getting it tuned properly :doh:

hey smelly, what benz would you suggest importing, driving and re-selling?...surely wouldn't be a clk since the resale is lower on those in taiwan than most other benz' (my bank was willing to give me 400,000 more to buy an audi tt since they were more confident on the resale value if they had to reposess...could you give an example what car you would buy, for how much, shipping, taxes, tarriffs and what you'd sell fro after a year?
