Re: Would this work to import?

thanks,

Team MaZi Customs, Lansing,


reply- the only reason why you have to get it converted is because the engine output is to much it gives off to much exhaust that is why you have to pay motorex 25000 to convert it however if the state has NO emission standards towards how much the car gives of in exhaust
then your fine. If you have the car in a state were there are no emissions then you can drive it anywhere. It also depends on the type and standard skyline you have if you ever want to get it converted.

These are all the conversion price for the gtr's im not sure on gtst's or m's are less I know that but not exactly sure how much.

r32-10000 usd
r33-25000 usd
r34-25000 usd

Also false. For correct pricing, go to www.motorex.net

Ok.. Ive found an 89 GTS-t on Batfa.com, for about 2400. I live in florida, basically.. Id have to pay the 3 grand for the car and shipping, to have it sent here... then 25 grand to have it legalized?

Im guessing my chances of having it classified as a show car are fubar too?

Damn monopolies.

Re: Would this work to import?

did you honestly look at motorex's site at all?
they've got the cost of legalization listed on the site.

maybe, since you found a cheap one, you should talk to motorex about what it takes to get it here, b/c it's not inexpensive. you've got insurance fees that you have to pay while it's on it's way here, etc.
it's not that easy.

the fee for an r32 is only 10-15k though, not 25.

go to their site, ask them questions, then make your decision on what you want to do.

i'm amazed at how many noobies are posting in this thread. it's really scary.

go see the stickied threads below this one, then come back.

Ok, first of all, I DID check Motorex's site. There is no price listing for the 1989 R32. Their prices only go as old as 1990. Dont go around blindly calling me a 'noobie' for not researching.. NO information is available on importing a 1989 Skyline, Ive looked. I understand full well it isnt cheap. I want to know if anyone else had tried to import and legalize an 89 GTS-t or GTR.

I have also heard from alot of people that the 89 Skylines become 'legal' in 2004, does anyone know about this?

$16k to legalize. I think they're not listing '89 as it propably is hard to find one.

I found a 1989 Skyline GTS-t. Is it still 16 grand to legalize? Motorex isnt responding yet.

Yes, but I guess that's something you can negotiate with Motorex. For them, it's the same amount of work whether it is a GT-R or not.

You insure one for the value of the car. My GT-R payments are less than for my '98 A4.

So what I pay for the car, plus or minus 2 or 3 hundred dollars is the value? I havent exactly seen it listed in the KBB. That's true, 19 grand doesnt sound too bad. I suppose its quite a bit more complicated though, from what Ive read about all the forms required.

I forgot port-of-entry and customs costs. So 24-28 grand, I suppose.

Re: Would this work to import?

So if canada is legalizing the skyline, then maybe there's hope that the someone in our US gov can pull their head out of their ass, and change the laws for us as well. Fortunately for myself, I'm in the military, so all i am going to do is move to japan, and stay there for the rest of my time in the military. Anyone know of any R34 Vspecs in the Yokuska area for sale??

do you know what the law is?
nope, you don't.

the US is legalizing skylines. where've you been? under a rock.

the deal in canada is that you can't even bring one over unless it's 15 years old or older. but there are still legalization hurdles that you have to clear.

it's not just "bring it over and drive it off the boat".

ok, first of all, before you go flamin people in forums, you need to look at what you just typed. The Us is not legalizing skylines, Motorex is. If the US WAS, we wouldn't need this lame ass monopoly. Any yes, I know you don't just import it and drive it off the boat. You have to have a contract with an RI, and it has to go through their legalization modifications and registration before you can ddrive off in it. I know you have made some intelligent posts in the past, but this is not one of them. Thanks for your time and energy trying to effectively lower the IQ's of all readers of your post.

MOTOREX IS LEGALIZING CARS.
HOW DO YOU DO THAT?
YOU GO TO THE GOVERNMENT, AND THEY PUT IT THROUGH TESTS TO BE LEGAL IN THE STATES.
WHO GOES THROUGH THE PROCESS? MOTOREX.
WHO IS ACTUALLY LEGALIZING THE CAR? THE GOVERNMENT.

trying to lower the IQ of readers?
really.
