Possible to order an Camaro for import ???

Hi Guys

Have a little question;

Is it possible for me to pre-order now an Camaro ? Im sure 100% i will buy one, but i must import the car here to germany, i will "can" not wait one more jear for the european Version in the mittle of 2010. (so im going crazy )
My plan is to import one and hope i become all street legal (TÜV). Hope i can drive the Car in summer 09.
In the next Days i will contakt any import-companys here in Germany and ask for import-prices , but i think the import-companys are not official GM dealer so they can not make me an pre-order
Is there an way for online Order? I think the import-company needs an GM-Dealer where he can talk with for the order.

Any ideas????

Many Thanks Blacky

There are differences between the stateside models and the export models like taillamps, right hand drive, etc. If you were to procure a stateside model and maintain TUV as you call it, then modifications would be required, no?

Hi
Yes thats right there are differences between the stateside models and the export models but only the lights and the Tach-Gauges.
Right hand drive is england
Few minutes ago I talked with an importeur on the phone, he meant that it no problem last with the TÜV guidelines.
(with the Mustang or Challenger it was the same - the cars are not offizial build for the european market and for the importeurs or european buyers was the same problems in the beginning)
There is a special arrangement if still no change of sentences exesist and 2009 gives it still no conversion kits for the Camaro ,
the euro version only 2010 appears there. The problem is only with the lighting and the KM/H Gauges in the Tacho/speedo . But there are possibilities and ways that to get. An big point for me is - i dont like the amber rear lights in the back, and so is an way to become an special arrangement to become the car registred with the red ones
Little modifikations are possible- but , better than waiting one more jear. And the pricing in USA is cheaper then later here in Germany i have here the Price is around 45,000.€ for an 1SS that are 61,100 dollar for an 1SS
If i import 1SS for around 34,000 dollar with shipping and all it cost me maximal 40,000€ so i saved around 5000€ or more if i can make an selfe-import , but that is not so easy with all the rules and papierwork (have no plan about this)
so you can see here in germany nothing is cheap, and for me its better to buy in US- so i think


regards Blacky

US dealers cannot sell outside the USA. You can import a USED Camaro though - if and when you can find one.

Hi
so i see the next problem to find an used Camaro for the first quater 2009
I look what the importeurs make, the Dodge Challenger was fast in europe
bring from the Importeurs. I hope the Camaro comes with the same speed.Or i come to the US and buy directly- so the dealer sells not outside- i take the car outside.
Thank you for your answere. hope i find an way to come fast on an Camaro

*brings back dead thread*

I think it speaks a lot to the awesomeness of the Camaro that people from the land of Porsche, BMW, Audi, and Mercedes-Benz want one.

Best of luck getting your hands on one of these!
