      Importing from Mexico?

      I saw some really nice Volvo's in Mexico and was wondering how hard it'd be to import a 2015 S80 T6.

      I'm guessing its carb compliment so i mean what else would be needed?

      I'd actually be a little surprised if it was CARB compliant but I have no idea.

      If bringing a car in from mexico is about the same as bring one in from Canada it is an expensive pain. Should be easy to find out with a google search. If you can do the mods it sounds like a fun project.
      Good luck.

      Magnus - you must have the bug bad. Set up all the alerts you can and reach out to auction houses. One will come up sometime. For the moment buy a decent driver and sell when the right car comes along.

      You cannot import from Mexico unless the car is 25 years old or older. The vehicles there are RoW spec and do not meet FMVSS.
