Can anyone provide some more color on this? Did anyone run into any issues and if so, what should the expected tax rate be?

Re: Would you buy a Euro E36 M3 as an enthusiast?

Less than two year until GT's are eligible and I would absolutely import a well preserved/maintained version, even if it's past collector status.

I can confirm that they do indeed do this and it's no questions asked as well. I'll buy anything and everything I can from them because of this policy.

Re: Pad experiences and recomendation

As in for other than commuting to and from the track? Would highly recommend against this. They are incredibly loud, incredibly dusty, and eat rotors.

Just to make sure I understand, you plan on making an underpanel kit that will work in conjunction with the factory LTW splitter and retain adjustability?

I would be very interested in that.
