Importing

Hi All,

Posted this in another forum...but I think it was the wrong one.

I'm new to the forum. I'm currently in Poland...was here for work for a little while. I bought a new Alfa Romeo Giulietta 170bhp MultiAir 2 months ago and want to bring it back to Santa Barbara with me in December but have never gone through the process.

I think....from what I've read so far that it is US compliant as far as emissions, gas usage, bumper safety and anti-theft. However, the display is in Kph rather than Mph. Not sure if I should wait until I get to the US and find someone to replace or if I should try and snag one from the UK and do it here in Poland?

We don't sell Alfas in the US...do we 0.o? SO then you guys must have gone through the process yourselves right?

ANY advice would be greatly appreciated!

It is practically impossible to bring in a new Alfa to the US, particularly CA. There are some exceptions (if they haven't been eliminated). As a foreigner you used to be able to bring your car in for a limited time of 1 year. After the 1 year it would have to be re-exported or crushed. Do a search on bringing in non-US compliant cars and information should pop up. The only legal way to do it permanently is to have a Registered Importer convert the car for you (at a HUGE cost) making it uneconomical.
