The E28 is a eurospec M5. One of 4 built in this colour and 1 of 2 built with this color and interior combo.

I wonder how tricky was it to import a Canadian car into California? Is it plated with Cali plates?

I think he meant the e28, that was imported, and being 20+ yrs I think it's easier.

Ahh, that makes more sense. I read the title and forgot there were other cars, lol.

I think it would be significantly easier to import an older vehicle like an E28 - kind of similar to how it's easier to import a 15yr or older vehicle for Canadians - curious on the specifics, though.

The US 25 year rule doesn't apply in California. Unless the car is built pre 1968 it has to pass the full EPA/CARB test to be importable to California.

To do the above it has to have full CARB compliant emissions equipment.

The above test includes cold start emissions and is hard to pass at almost $3000 per test. You fail. Retest is another $3000.

The state of California HATES cars!!
