Who imports euro?

Been searching lately online without any luck.....

We have import concern and other little guys who can get us japanese cars...

What about european cars.. who can import those over for us? I'd really appreciate your guys help on this. Looking to go back to BMW's and wouldn't mind something a little more.... original.

VLS Auto normally has a lot of rare euro bummers as well. As for if they can import upon request, I am not sure,
Give them a call theya re normally all over the auto trader with their euro M5's, e30 tourings and the sort.

Actually Lennon's suggestion is your best bet if you want to pay as little as possible importing one over. What you buy in Europe for pfennigs ends up costing a shitload once Wills & co have brought it over and factored in their profit.

What happened to that beautiful 325IT e30 touring that was for sale on here not too long ago? that was a nice ride for a reasonable price....
