Importing car from Germany - recommendations

I'm looking into importing a car from Germany... however, the biggest problem just seems to be making the arrangements for the purchase.

There are plenty of shipping and brokerage companys that can get the car over here. But none will get involved in the purchase.

Also, most export dealers I found online deal with relatively new cars, but us canadians need to have car 15 years or older...

Anyone have any recommendations?

Best way is to go on vacation buy the car, drive it around while you are there and then shipping it back yourself.

That is what I would wholeheartedly like to do if I ever decide I want to import a car from awesome land.

I really wanted a 335D coupe or even one of these for a daily driver http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JC6mA1nPjH0

... shouldn't be too hard right?

edit * Either of these would make me happy for the ultimate daily driver... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mI0Y2PFEq9w

oh yeah this guy's prices are higher than the dealerships, he's ridiculous. But sometimes he's the only one that has that certain part in Canada and he knows that.
