1999 Z3 M Roadster (European) - Import to USA?

Having lived in Switzerland the past 25 years and now planning a move back to the USA, I'm considering importing my 1999 M Roadster to the US. Purchased new in Switzerland (S50B32 engine) and in perfect condition with only 40K miles. Manufacture date 01/1999, so it will be exempt from EPA import regulations as of early next year. Based on my research so far, there is still the DOT compliance to contend with as long as the age is < 25 years old. Anyone have any experience dealing with this US import process and how to avoid the (inevitable) land mines?
Thanks in advance!

I think you need to wait till the 25 year threshold.
