    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.
    Power, whether measured as HP, PS, or KW is what accelerates cars and gets it up to top speed. Power also determines how far you take a wall when you hit it
    Engine torque is an illusion.

    AWD versions of this:



    Should be excellent. However, it may be difficult to find one that's not been "molested" by ricers. Shame, as it's a nice looking car as standard.

    Nope. That would be an Eclipse.
    I'm dropping out to create a company that starts with motorcycles, then cars, and forty years later signs a legendary Brazilian driver who has a public and expensive feud with his French teammate.

    avoid the eclipse if you like reliability apparently.

    ya, i've thought about the eclipse before, but knowing that it shared the same platform with the Plymouth Laser and eagle talon, it went off my list.

    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.
