Its an interesting question as I bought one in Germany last month. I hope to bring it back to the US and use it here in Alaska. It cost DM24,500 is a 94 Touring stick leather everything.
i am going to attempt to find out exactly what must be changed, but it seems that there are a lot of minor changes to keep DOT happy i.e etching on the outside mirrrors 3rd brake light etc.For EPA I am not sure my car has 2 exaust manifolds and 2 cats going into 1 muffler, but no oxygen sensor. I hope I wont have to change all that and the engine control computer. I am estimating $5000 for the mods with myself doing much of the DOT stuff before i ship it.
