Hi all, I realise this is an odd question, as usually people are interested in importing i3s in the other direction. But: I'm currently in the US for work for a couple of years, and am looking to get a car here. My dad in Europe has an i3 that he's not currently using.
So I'm thinking instead of spending a few thousand dollars on a crappy used car here, maybe it would make as much or more sense to spend the money on shipping the i3 here instead. I've been looking into how that might work, but I just cannot see my way through all the DOT and EPA and CBP rules around importing a car.
Does anyone here know if it would be possible to import an i3 to the US, and how complicated it would be? Do I just need to fill in a few forms, or do I need to pay a commercial importer? I would want to keep the car for more than a year, so the temporary import exemption doens't apply unfortunately.
