Re: licensing and unlicensed skyline

Anyone correct me if I'm wrong, but I did not find Fuel Imports on the list of RI's, so I'd say, NO.
On another forum someone called them to ask how they do it and they said their service technician was an RI, but when asked who this person was or his affiliation to an RI, they balked, so I'd say steer CLEAR, steer VERY CLEAR.

Re: licensing and unlicensed skyline

Thanks!
Currently I am the owner/operator of Skyline America....
Right now, no one is legalizing Skylines(in the US), and so we are working in other markets right now until this situation is remedied. We hope within the next 4-6 months that things will be drastically different than the current state of affairs.
So, to answer your question a different way, so as to be more clear---we are not an RI, we are a sales company who brokers our sales in conjunction with legalization through an RI, to better streamline the process for consumers and ensure that they recieve the best possible pricing, service, and, ultimately, do not lose their vehicles to US Customs, or worse....

Well, I'm kinda understanding what you guys are saying. I'm reading that you are saying that if you import a car that isn't compliant then you can't sell it. So what, what If I want to import my car for myself? Is Motorex really the only way. I don't care about selling it. I just want it for myself............by the way I'm not some retard who wants a Skyline..........I OWN one here in Japan. But everything I keep reading is just Motorex Motorex Motorex.........and they suck. It's funny cause my wife is Japanese and when I mention paying $16,000 to import my Skyline she flips out......why??? because she has grown up seeing them....to the Japanese, Skylines are just a normal car they see all the time and nothing special. Most of them DON'T CARE. Well I really love my car and I'm sick of all these people claiming that they can import them. So if someone comes up with a "NEW" legal way to get them back for a lot less then $16,000 (heck, even 7,000 wouldn't be that bad)......let me know. I follow all this importing very closely....but sometimes it's a little hard to separate fact from fiction, because people lie and talk out of their asses on the internet. And when it comes to my car I don't want to take ANY chances.

What stops you from selling it yourself after you import it ?

Nothing. Rules are rules. We can follow them or not follow them.

Re: licensing and unlicensed skyline

That would be correct. Shipping via TMO will NOT make it legal. You will still need Motorex.
