Spend less time on fancy-shmancy car shopping and go racing

Nice car. Are you going to gut it and put a cage in it?

Buy your car here, go to Germany, get treated like royalty, enjoy your car in Europe, drop it back off, fly home, they ship your car over and you have it here.

Cool thing is that was possibley one of the only 335is cars anyone will see on europes streets as it's a north American only car.

How long can you keep the car for before you hand it back to them for delivery?

European delivery includes 2 free weeks of road insurance. You can drive your car for up to 6 months max before it must leave Europe. You're responsible for any insurance longer than 2 weeks.

you had bmw remove the speed limiter???
they did that for you?
that's illegal for north american models...doesn't comply with transport canada rules now.

or, are you talking about no-speed limits on the highways?

unless things changed, with euro delivery, you cannot finance the car - cash required to pay for the whole car right away.
is that still true?

No I mean No speed limiter. I was expecting it to stop at 250km/h but when I was on my way to the ring. I have video. I hit 280km/h without a problem. Even my friend was shocked.

It's a EU built car. Don't think they would ever put a limiter on them because of that HWY there that you can drive w/e speed you want.
