LOL, Been there...done that! Welcome aboard Ahmad. The thanks goes to V12 for introducing our boards to each other by his topic on Supercars in Bangladesh. You guys have some serious machinery out there.

Can you share with us what the duty structure and regulations are for importing high end machinery in your country?

Welcome to Team-BHP

hey aadix

your welcome in dhaka anytime... ive updated the post with the indian rupees prices.. 1 INR = 1.28257 BDT

car import rules are not that strict.. anyone can import a car which is less than 4 years old.. the cars have to come from the country in which it was built.. this was done as a lot of Japanese cars were being brought in from Dubai..

Other than these rules you can bring in pretty much any car that you like as long as you can afford the taxes..

Hello all,

I'm tamzeed, one of the four admins of drivetimedhaka.com along with rezwan, asad and ahmad. Awesome forum you guys have here. I'm a big Lambo fan and was really delighted to find the pic of the Diablo Roadster in the forums. Hope the Murci arrives soon.......

Take care.

a request: Is it possible to get some more pics of the Gallardo....?
