Sold car but delayed (previously 'before new year' turned into after new year) until now, vacation time has allowed more time for planning trip.

*This is to post requests for whole cars as well as specific (part number/location all particulars etc) euro parts.*

I can communicate with you via pm while there to narrow down your item/cost to have it imported. To be abundantly clear, I am doing this for fun and in no way is it commercial. This is a nice 'experience' to see if I could turn this into an all out business. I plan on offering 1994 e30 touring/1996 e34 touring as the ones no one wants I can keep for myself . I am hoping to get one bone stock and one tinkered with (for all the lil girls on dis here forum) - of each series.

I will try to have the car tuned and safety/emissions tested and ONLY the ones that make it are game
AFTER a long (hopefully recorded via iphone) test drive in various surfaces/conditions, all at length. After this filtration I will buy and pack her IN.
Also since I have so much SPACE inside all these wagons, rims/bumpers/panels/doors/fenders/various parts/complete engines??*btw, is this possible without border issues, I mean the running engines??*
as much as I can get me hands on anyway/money will allow. Thank you for indulging and NOT really interested in offending ANYONE with this SO THIS CANNOT POSSIBLY TURN INTO AN OFFENCE/OFFENSIVE TRANSACTION - thank you for keeping this a POSITIVE experience for everybody - thank you

How about becoming a sponsor like suggested b4 in the other thread and not knowingly posting outside the regulations of the forums

I do hope your previous thread and comments are taken into consideration, and the blatant fact your doing this without paying like those of us who do

Let's be honest, your not doing this for fun, you are trying to turn a profit, that's called a business

Exactly. From what I see at least with the parts, he's going to go over, look for things people have requested buy on their behalf, send them to the buyer once he has them in Canada and charge them cost of the parts + shipping costs. I could be wrong, though

You mean all the stuff you can get here anyways, regardless of whether it's a euro part or not?

Sequel thread.
lol nice

But seriously, turning a profit in this manner is mickey mouse to say the least. Aside from kinda being insulted by it, it is ok if maybe I was not clear enough.

It would be my dream to turn this little thing I have with cars into a legit. business. This would require a business plan that is complete/tax compliant as well as my full attention.
I am not going over solely for this and want to also bring over some last year of production models *the only thing on offer because these are for me.

I am OK keeping all of them for future use
(think about it, I plan on driving a couple into old age = 20+years ... I mean it would be helpful to have a donor when I need it etc etc)
-also parting out - replacements - selling if I want to - and it is endless.

If there is a good enough offer, again SSSSSSOLD! OR.....I will just keep them for personal enjoyment - a new car would cost me at least $50k if its nice - why not take this and play with it any way you want. THIS is what I want and I am doing it - if you want me to pick up a few things *which I would most likely want also, why not share it?

This is providing the experience and I am going there regardless - I dont understand.....anyway, when OR if I am ready and prepared to turn this into a business, I am not afraid to be forthcoming about it -
this is not some slimy salesman/hustling type sh*t - it is me enjoying a ride and if you wanna ride, don't look at me b*, look ahead of you - or get out of the car and dont leave your purse - ok?

lastly, as stated from the onset, this is a productive and positive thread and I am not interested in lockin heads with anyone - if I have offended anyone, it was not intentional - thanks

I have not seen parts from a 94 e30 touring here nor a 96 e34 - the point is that this is for me and you can have a piece if you pay me enough to cover the cost of bringing it here for myself as well as enough to actually convince me to hand it over - the rims (like schmidt) are pretty rare and bringing ones like that yields some nice $$ - yea what do you think?

Exactly, this is the point of it being an experience I would actually undertake. It is not really a plan to make like $5gggggzzzz man - naaa mean - and in case I do, that would be nice also. EXACTLY the point.

Let's be honest, your not doing this for fun, you are trying to turn a profit, that's called a business *thats a pretty confident statement man!

I would love to become a sponsor as I stated in my prequel thread - but I am not even going to fathom how prepared and organised you must have been when you first became a sponsor - well this ....this..this is my first time doing this and if I have NO IDEA what I will encounter in a foreign country plus NOT having a business budget, I mean you are right .....lets be honest, if you would qualify me as a business worthy of your lofty sponsor position, then you are mistaken -
this is just for fun dude and if I make a few dollars to fund another trip - I promise I will not say no and potentially turn this into a real business ....really but only IFFFFF!!!

Yes sir, but from what I can see ALL HAVE FKN SUNROOF (I WILL find a solution even if it is not the last year of production) - anyway love these cars as they serve my family purposes as well as my need for classic and well built!! Also 96 e34 without pano would be great for the long haul - I will have LONG time to perfect it ...... *smoke*

If you find any M-Tech 2 rear spoilers for touring let me know how much, or any cool touring specific parts.

Will do - - I will also try to source out a few extra rustless trunk lids - I dont think there are too many differences though so everything is pretty interchangeable??!! anyway - plan on doing that anyway - cheers

a question for anyone who knows - full engines - is this going to raise any issues at the border - maybe in a crate or similar - anyone brought over a full engine ready to be plopped in?? any knowledge would be appreciated

Ok so no one knows anything about engines - I am assuming that everyone is interested only after I have succeeded in bringing them over - so be it and see you girls then

ive heard of engines being imported all the time, not entirely sure as to what the process or fees entail. but what i DO know, if you bring over a EURO s50 or s52, along with the euro 6 speed, im sure you wont have any trouble selling it.. not that i can afford it, but many people fantasize about that swap..
ill take a euro plate filler though if you find some :P

UUhhh yeah. Otherwise everyone would just do it themselves fcplm

Try calling whatever port you will have your container shipped to and ask them? They would obviously know and would be able to give you specific answers.

that sounds good thank you for the guidance - I was just worried that maybe they would want it in the car in order to let it pass - I figured I would have to declare that it is only for parts = it cannot be legally put in a car whole - anyway the port would be the best route and I should get on that by next tuesday - will report my findings
