Why would you do that? The tarrif is a bitch, I hear. European ones are faster. Unless you want something like a Caddy, or old muscle car...

For importing to Belgium, you're probably better off searching government sources on the web there in Belgium.

300,000 KM/Sec. Its not just a good idea, its the law.

it's nice but it ain't worth. Buying the car outside US and ship it here will all the tax, emission, transportation and etc fees. Overall you will end up the higher that the price if you buy it here from the US. If you wanted an impreza sti with 2.5 300 hp. Why not just get the engine and ECU itself? If you wanted an Evo8 with 270-280 HP why not just tweak the engine and get the parts that will allow you to get that number. I heard EVO are just the same only they have to tweak it a little for US street legal standard.

I think you go the wrong idea buddy, he wants to buy a supra in the us and then ship it over to belgium. Not the other way around, plus the STI and the Evo were just for comparison he didn't actually want to buy those.

Now to the original poster, In the US supras are also pretty hard to find and they do cost a lot, alos with modifications that you will have to do to make it street legal in belgium(if there are any), plus the tarrif on export/import, you will end up paying so much more.

So I would recomend settling for something else that is available localy.

It is much better to try to import a used car directly from Japan. Make a search in Google by "Japan auto auction". They give you all information.

They are cheap and usually well maintained, and sport cars have a lot of sweet additions. And where you can find Skyline GT-R but in Japan?

The only problem is the wheel.
My friend put a used engine from Japan in his old car, it was extremely cheap but low mileage.

Well then if that's the case forget what I just said. And forget exporting it from the US. If you have connection export the vehicle from Japan where the heart of JDM cars are.

If you are looking for a Supra, JAPAN is the best market for you. The price is much cheaper and more choices of Supra (JDM) thumbsup
