Hello Folks! Here's my intro and I need your openion..
Hi Guy’s…
First of all I must say… Hands down!!! This is the best site ever for anyone who's interested in Indian Car seen!!!! I am really amazed by the wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm you guys have… I though I was a fanatic but you guys are crazy!!!![FONT=Wingdings][/FONT]

About me:
Name: Hitesh (no not a guju)
Age: 26
Location: New Jersey, USA (Still not a guju)
Originally from: MUMBAI mere jaan (parted from my jaan back in 1999)

My rides over the years:
1995-1997: Under age driving on Fiat, Maruthi 800, Maruthi 1000, & Maruthi Esteem VX

1998 – 1999: Black Honda City (one of the first few in mumbai ;))

1999 – 2000: Souped up Honda Del Sol

2001: Silver 1995 BMW 325i (this is when I fell in love with Beemers!)

2002: 1995 325i + Black 2002 325i

2003-2004: 2002 325i + 2003 Honda Civic Coupe (for commuting)

2005-Current: 2004 BMW X5 4.8IS! 22 IN ASANTI WHEELS! PANO ROOF! + 2003 Honda Civic Coupe (still commuting :D)

Now here’s my question…please:

I plan to move back soon and I would love to import a car back under “TR” (transfer of residence)… I know LHD are out of the question… so what are my options? Can I buy a car let’s say in Germany and still qualify for TR? And how much duty/taxes am I looking to add to the cost of the car?

Any info will be helpful… thanks in advance

Keep up the gr8 work… its one think to see exotics on US roads but it’s absolutely awe-inspiring to see these machines on Indian roads (at least for me)… keep posting those pictures!

Hi and Welcome to the team. Import regulations have been discussed extensively. Please perform a search for the results.

You need to have used the car for a while, for it to be eligible to import under TR.

Hey DaPilot,

Welcome to the forum.

If you buy a car from Germany now then you cant get it here without paying full duty. You must have used you car for around 3 years or something there before you get it here to avoid full duty.

Cheers ;)
