There's a difference between selling cars outside of the US and buying cars outside of the US.

Twice as much profit? Yeah, maybe in Canadian dollars.

I've looked into this...I believe you cannot make a Mexican car into an American car if it is newer than like 2000 or 2001. The laws are very very strict. And I doubt you would pass emissions, as Mexican cars are european-spec.

They even come with clears from the factory, etc. If I could, I would bring a 330d...a slight tune and you're going faast and getting awesome fuel economy. Remember you must also change the instrument cluster, which is $$$$...remember Mexico=km/hr.

I need to go find a junkyard in Mexico...buy OEM clears for cheap and sell in US for $$$$
