    So I have my 2000cs in Poland. My dad wants to sell it but it's mint in and outside with fresh internals so I was thinking about importing it and duerdening the shit out of it.

    I know some of you exported cars to Europe, but has anyone imported them from there to USA?

    I know a guy in RI who does it all the time. I hear its easy, but if you have any discrepancies in your paper work you can get fucked at customs. Car will also need to be very clean any dirt on the undercarriage and they could hold it. I will see if I can get you in touch with this guy if you want.

    that would be awesome. thanks.

    car in question is a 1966 BMW 2000CS. it is registered in Germany (first idea 10 years ago was to rebuild it in Poland and then sell it in Germany, if it was registered in Poland, then it wouldn't be allowed for export - Polish don't let antiques leave its territory, lol).

    Very easy. You just need a declaration form (HS-7) when you get to the port of entry (other than the previous registration, ownership docs, and bill or lading):
