Would they even bother federalizing a 10 year old euro Volkswagen though? I mean would they crash test my exact model and pay to repair it? They've already been tested but to Europe standard surely It's the same test.
That is a link to HALF the info you need. When importing, you fill out two forms, one for EPA, and one for DOT. On the second page of that document, it says "U.S. EPA requirements only." It does not cover DOT requirements.
Ah, yeah sorry. Uh basically if I take over three identical models they will agree to do all the dull DOT tests on the identical ones and once they pass with flying colors I can import mine and keep it there without it being impounded and crushed.
