We can import anything over 15 years old.

Some early Lancers are eligible!

a mid to late '90s E39 BMW 528i should be in your budget.

Lots of fun, great handling, very practical.

Well I'd be afraid of importing anything that would be used everyday, damn road salts might eat away at something like that...? But you did see one in Montreal....so it's possible.
