Hi guys,

I've been thinking about importing a CLK 200K, 230K or 320.

Which do you personally think I should get? It has to cost around 14000 EU (About 80% can be added to that when it enter's the country).

Could you try and bring out some arguements? Fuel economy and such?

Also, where can I see details on these 3 cars? I couldn't find anything about the 230K on carfolio.com

Thanks

You will have to convert the vehicle to meet US specs. By the time you are done, you're probably better off getting an american version and customizing it.

Many of our friends (wife is foreign) come here, buy cars and ship them back to Europe in containers. They are (or were) uninspected for the most part, and you could do the opposite. But at some point, you would have to pass an emissions test. Curious, why import? is it cheaper or is the quality better? I've heard of high end Italian cars being shipped to Canada, retrofitted to Canadian standards, then driven into the States.

It's cheaper [:)]

I come from Iceland, and here people usually sell cars for pumped up prices. Since the Icelandic Króna stands pretty well with the Euro and USD at the moment, it's much cheaper to import a Mercedes-Benz from Germany than to buy it here.

Oh, and Germany and Iceland both have the same emission standards (euro), so no worries about that.
