I own a Mercedes Benz C200 1997 model purchased in Dubai. Its a German make. As I have moved to US I would like to bring it to US. In order to bring the car to US I need to produce a letter from the original manufacturer stating that the car confirms toall applicable U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety, Bumper,and Theft Prevention Standards.

I understand going through a registered importer is very expensive. I checked in the department of transportation, US website and came to know that this car complies with the US Federal motor vehicle Safety, Bumper standards. However in order to get shipped I need to produce that letter from the original manufacturer at the port of entry.

Can anyone let me know how to get this letter?

Abdul Gaffoor.

Speak to a benz dealer in dubai and ask them to help you. I'm sure you are not the first to do this. They will know what to do.

Have you considered just selling the car in Dubai and then buying one in the US? Given the favorable exchange rate you may actually be able to get a newer car! Good luck.
