    No. Depending on port it takes a few weeks. I requested a quote based on when I was planning on visiting Europe

    It's sort of like airline tickets, you can save money by booking in advance. If you want the car to go on a ship sooner, you can pay more.

    Yep, what's your question? I did not handle the actual importation of my car into the country, it was already registered in Texas.

    Any California Touring owners out there? I understand its probably not worth it but I am curious of anyone that's done it.

    Since its a good resource, I stuck it to the top. That said, lets try our best to keep the chatter to a limit and relevant to importing a Touring into the US.

    My father imported his 240Z when he moved to Germany in the early 2000's. He rented out a cargo container, which he put the car in, and other stuff he took with when he moved.

    I don't recall any major difficulties. Laws in Germany are usually pretty clear cut and simple to follow.

    Not from any outside sources, no. I found a company that does all kinds of domestic and international transporting (https://interfracht.de/) who would arrange transport from door to door for around 2700 euros. Which from what ive seen is average pricing. They say they will handle all the paperwork and get it through customs in about a week after it arrives at the port in the Netherlands and then would truck it down to freiburg and drop it at a location of my choosing. As far as any details on the actual process, i have none. Just give dem da monies and wait for mah car.

    Just got a quote from Hogh and I was elated! $500 USD, plus 91.77... from Spain to Baltimore!

    What do you think?

    I'll be shipping the car in the next few months!
