Dear BW Members i have two questions to ask.

I purchase U.S. Export (i am from EU - Slovenia), with the designation 450SLC, the VIN is WDB10702412023592.
We have issue to determin the kW of the engine, could somebody help.

Another problem i am facing is, the car was imported into EU 5+ years back. I am missing a U.S. title (thats the problem also as we dont have the tehnicals specs).
Is there a chance i could get linked to a center where you register your car in order to contact them with the purchase agreement and Import documents, maybe they wouldbe willing to share a copy over email.

The car is from New Mexico.

Many thanks

Without a title, checking to see if it’s been reported stolen is a good start. I’m not sure this site is comprehensive, but worth a check.


Www.Automobile-catalog.com is the site I use to check specs.

I don’t know how you’d go about getting a title now that the car is in Europe. In my state, I need to bring my cars to the DMV to get a title for them. I know some states allow you to mail in for a title, but think that they require you send in the previous title.

Fonzi thanks fro the help.
Actualy the car is EU imported. Everithing is legal.
I have the custom clearance from New Mexico to EU, but at the first registry in EU they might ask for the old registration papers (to be onest i dont know how that document looks in U.S.), i guess this is the US Title with the licence plate inside, and tehnical specs, probably the tehnical inspection and the owner should be writen inside.

Many thanks

In the US we dont have any technical inspections of cars. When a car is sold the title is passed on to the new owner. previous owners usually remove any papers identifying themselves. Depending on the state the license plate belongs to the owner, not the car. A bill of sale is not required in many states,

Here a registration slip is just proof of paying the yearly license fee, Again usually removed from car on sale as it has personal information on it.

In summary there is really no paperwork you could get that you dont already have.
