Default How much does it cost to import a car from Japan?

Just curious if anyone has done it or knows the costs. Also, are there customs/california MV code things that need to be taken care of when having a car from Japan shipped to California?

Your best bet is to call up Motorex in Gardenia. They import skylines so they should be able to tell you a little more about how to do it. although i'd recommend paying someone the broker/conversion fees to get it imported and certified........doing it alone could prove to be quite the headache.

Of course I am going to ask. I haven't talked to anyone who has done it yet.

Including shipping charges and DOT standards - about $20k. Motorrex will convert a Skyline for $16k+.
