just joined!

hi,

my name is matt, just joined.

currently drive a mitsubishi evolution. always fancied a proper american muscle car, rarity, instant power, sweet v8, gorgeous body, and rear wheel drive = loads of fun

i live in the uk, and am considering importing a mustang cobra from the states because the price difference is incredible!

cheers
matt

Re: just joined!

thanks!

i've emailed all the UK import companies so will see what kind of response i get..

i'm thinking it would be cheaper to do it all myself, i mean, i saw a yellow 99 Stang GT manual, 18k miles going for 12,000 UK Pounds = $22,000

Re: just joined!

Welcome, it seems the 03/04 cobras have a high premium right now sadly. They would be the best in terms of the 99+ cobras, but they tend to cost 23-24k US for an 03 model in good condition with good miles (hardtop)

how much trouble are they to import, cost? etc?

Re: just joined!

thanks for the welcome!

been talking to a jap car importer, been convinced it would be best that i find a US car exporter/UK importer to find me a car, that way if something goes wrong they pay for it, and they have the expertise, experience etc

so do any of you know US car exporters?

cheers
matt

Re: just joined!

I think thats a good plan but get the full warranty in writing and read it all to see what you are liable and not liable for.

Re: just joined!

i've decided to get some help from some UK mustang owners 1 in particular imported his vehicle himself and saved a ton of money, and went to view it himself in person before he bought it. got the guy selling it to him to say it was a gift (to save $$$$ on taxes).. .hopefully there might be someone selling the car i want on this forum?!

Re: just joined!

you never know, there WAS an electric green 99 cobra in my area for sale but I cant tell you anything more about it~ its probably gone already. They tend to pop up pretty often though, give ebay a look.
