    Default has anyone looked at importing an Alpine A110?

    I've always thought these were cool, but never really looked into if an import is impossible or just hard.

    The original you should be able to. The 2017 model would likely be subject to the 15 year rule.

    Get a property in Europe and keep it registered there. EZPZ

    Maybe once brexit is finalized that will actually be a good idea

    Here is the list of admissible vehicles that are newer than 15 years old: https://www.tc.gc.ca/motorvehiclesaf...Section3_0.htm

    Renault isn't listed so I believe that means they would be inadmissible until they reach the 15 year old mark. However, the old ones should be allowed no problem

    from the US, i dont think he's done one from Europe.

    The one loophole is to have it registered in EU and come here on a VISA. You can apparently drive the vehicle here temporary while on the VISA.

    There’s a visa temporary import loophole. It’s a pain in the ass. I did it the easier way. Get a house in Montana, get a drivers license, and register it there. Shelby will forever be my 2nd home.

    But the US has more restrictive import laws than Canada, don't they? Did you do this for one of those weird ones that is American built and can't be modified to meet the Canadian bumper standards?

    I was only replying to importing a newer model car. The CLK black didn’t qualify for Canadian import because it couldn’t install child seats or something stupid. Speaking of which my car is still around.

    It went from Chicago to California and lived a few blocks from our US office.

    Even after all these years, that car still looks like a beast. Cool to see how you found it.
