Shipping GCC Spec BMW from UAE to USA
I was wondering if anyone has any experience shipping a newer BMW from the UAE to the US... New Jersey in my case. (Sadly, I'm not Navy anymore, so I can't get the government to do it.)
I have a beautiful, low-mileage GCC-spec 2014 BMW Z4 35is that I'm receiving offensively low offers for. So, I'm wondering about shipping back it to the US. It helps that I really love the car, as the idea of parting with it has been painful. (I know the Individual Hardtop is a matter of taste, so please don't mock!!)
In order of priority, advice that I could use:
- Any ideas who I should consult for the necessary conversions when back in the US? GCC spec generally implies larger radiator, but if anyone has any specific knowledge of my Z4, I'd love to know. Emissions???
- Any idea how to calculate duties/taxes that either the US or New Jersey might charge me?
- Any experience-based recommended exporters/importers here in the UAE?
I know I should just get rid of the car here, but as I said, I'm getting such ridiculous offers, that shipping it back is starting to make a lot more sense.
