He wants the Hatchback 130i from Europe. As far as I know it would be like pulling your head through your ******* and out of your mouth.

OP: Mow much you wanna spend? Import is the easy part. Changing lanes (read LHD-RHD) is the hard part.

He would still have to get it converted to US specs. There's a huge costly difference.

Even if he were to get it in Mexico, wouldn't he spend a lot of money getting it federalized, since BMW never did so themselves for that car?
