      Sheer curiosity: want to know if I'd be able to get an Audi RS4 Black Edition into the US -- the chrome accents on the [US spec] RS4 have always annoyed me, and also the fact that we didnt get the flat-bottomed steering wheel OR the secksi front buckets. Just wanna kno if anyone has dealt with importers --

      I would imagine it would be cheaper to buy a us model rs4 and then buy the european black parts and then install them.

      Yes you can, just take the year it was made and add 25 years. That will be when you can import the vehicle.

      If you have $150k burning a hole in your pocket, anything is possible. Does it make sense? Absolutely not.

      They made a Titanium package in the B7 RS4.

      Buy one of those, then do the steering wheel and seats. Lots of people do that.

      And then make sure you send Mercedes a thank you note as well...

      Why don't you write a letter to Audi? They might ship one right to your door

      You probably could but you need to have it federalized. Europa did it with GWagens back in the 80s. It ended up making a 30k G into a 100k G by the time they changed out the glass, bumpers, etc...



      Not worth it for something like this
