E36 B8 4.6 TOURING #009

Not a UK spot, but it looks like this one is shortly going to depart Germany headed for the US to join B3 3.2 TOURING #023. Looks like the first Touring going Stateside.

That is a nice pair of cars. Is the car going Stateside with the current owner or has there been a sale?

If the latter would be interested to know what it went for.

Looks to’ve been sold, don’t think there was a formal ad, just a “let me know if you’re interested” kind of thing

Very surprised this B8 is going to the states, if the importation of a B5 a few years ago is anything to go by the importer will have a nightmare with US regulations :(

There’s at least one B8 4.6 already in the US. I believe now they’re 25yrs+, importation is much more feasible. The B5 was particularly tricky as it was so much younger and therefore had more hoops to navigate.

25 years is the magic number for the yanks. Thats what pulled the e34 m5 tourings up as the yanks like a fast euro wagon as they never got them over there

Few e34 bi turbos now over there. Its easier for them to import from Canada id expect as they buy Japanese Alpinas and the canadians only have a 15 years old rule for importing
