2009 St

How can I get one here in the states? Or do I have to go across the pond?

Yup ... you can go to Mexico and see them in person ... But it's a hella lot of mulla to import that into the states. I do not know the actually numbers, but there is a guy from Mexico who brought his ST to the states. He said it was quite a bit. He said he was able to bring it over because he drives between Mexico and Texas alot for his work. So they allowed him to do that. As for keeping the car here ... you pay alot of tax for it.

Good luck if you are really trying to get one over.

(MAYBE YOU CAN FIND A WRECKED ONE THERE AND BRING IT OVER ... TAKE THE ENGINE AND FIT IT IN YOUR SVT ... That would be pretty neat) Just a suggestion.

Here's one...

http://www.carsmexico.com/autos/ford....asp?id=192940

Only 8,699 miles on it. Recaro seats, HID's, etc...I'm assuming that's all standard, right?

$15,209.78 and it's yours. God knows how much to get it back across the border....


**Edit**

Here's some info on bringing cars here...
http://www.importexporthelp.com/importing-cars.htm

According to this website, you would get charged a tax of 2.5% of the selling price when you re-enter the country. However, it mentions a $400 customs exemption that can be claimed in certain situations, and it sounds like if you were to travel to Mexico on vacation or to work/study, buy the car and bring it back with you for personal use, you can claim the exemption....I'm not sure, I just sort of skimmed the page. That $400 exemption happens to be the exact amount of tax that would be charged on $16,000.

But, now the hard part--the car has to meet ALL US safety and emissions standards....
