Transfer of Residence and LHD cars
 
Hi Gang,

I could use some help here. I have a family member coming back to Mumbai and would like to send an automobile for my personal use. The problem is, the one I want is only available in LHD *

Would i be allowed to use it in India. Actually, if someone could explain the process of importing and duties etc it would be a great help.

* I want to bring in the Dodge Charger SR8. The souped up Hemi that puts out 425BHP at the rear wheel. Looks fantastic and i could probably smoke anything in Mumabi ..

PS> A Rolls was delivered to my Mumbai building last week. There is also a H2, a Bentley Continental, a Ferrari 430 Spyder ... Any guesses on where I live and who my childhood friends are? :)

You seem to have influencial friends who have already been through the process- ask them.

Do you really want our advice or are you trying to show where you live ?

Having said that.. I don't think you can get a LHD into the country anymore whoever you are.

Yup you cant, Only RHD cars are allowed except for embassies. I wanted to import my car from the us, on further invertigation i found that i could import it but it would not be released from the customs / container depot as it was an ldh. unfortunately i had to sell it :mad:

If you really want that SRT-8, you should probably get the 300 or the 300 Touring, which is now available as a RHD in the UK. You wont get the 6.1, but you can get the 5.7. IMHO,the 300/Magnum looks much better than the current Charger.

You live in Bandra, on Pali Hill. And your friends are the Dewans.
Cheers

Firstly there would be many cars in mumbai which would whop SRT8s @$$ back to the US..

Secondly, its not 425 to the rear wheels, its 425 to the crank, more like 350 or less to the rear wheels

Its quite a sadly put together machine, but if you are going to send the car here, and willing to spend the 40+40 on duty then you might as well spend the 20 on getting it converted to RHD from UK, i can give you the info if you are interested...

So no LHD allowed...go get a conversion it costs 9995 GBP about 8.5 lakh Rs, but then again the car costs 18 Lakhs + 18 Lakhs in duty + Ins + Road Tax, you are looking at a tad under 50 for the car, instead of a little over 40, so makes not much of a diff...

The Car Connection is running the first spy shots of Dodge’s hotly anticipated Charger. Man, for a car we’ve been looking forward to for four years, it sure looks damn unremarkable up on that truck, doesn’t it? More like a cop car than pavement-scorching Detroit muscle. Damn you, cold reality.
