I want to import a Focus RS...But how?

What's up fanatics? I want to Import a Focus RS from Europe. I'm from Houston Tx. I am willing to pay cash for the car...So around how much will the RS set me back? Also does anybody know what kind of modifications would have to be performed in order to make the car street legal here?? One more question. How would I go about shipping the damn car? I know it will be a lot of paper work and bullshit like that but I am willing to stick with it in order to get the RS. Any info will help me out right now. Thank you.

Get with an European Dealership.......they will usually go the extra mile just to get some green....thus help you more than a US dealer..........

Although nowadays the Euro currency is higher than the Dollar so you might want to wait a little.....

Peace...

It will cost a lot of money and red tape. Importing cars isn't easy; many modifications have to be made, and a couple have to be crashed, before its approved for import. Plus, the RS isn't made any more, so you'll have to settle for a used one.

Personally, I feel it would be easier and cheaper to make your own.

Why?? If money is no object, why deal with the governmental red tape and nonsense? Just spend less than it would cost to import the RS and build yourself a Focus that would leave the RS in the dust. You could even buy a new Focus, rather than a used RS, as someone already pointed out. Heck, if you wanted to you could even make it look like an RS with the purchase of the appropriate parts...

i actually called up a local ford dealership in the Dallas area and spoke with the sales manager... he told me someone already asked and the price for everything would be 60k. It included emissions, importing, bumpers, govt inspection and the like. But unfortunately no one in the U.S. except maybe a private car importer would do it.
