So much misinformation in this thread. :(

I tried to work with Reiger back in 2000-2001, nothing happened as they were not interested in the US market. I did work with Carcepet(NL) and No Limits Tuning(DE).

Importing a C307 Focus, forget it. Only REGISTERED EPA IMPORTERS car import a car, PERIOD.

If you are serious about this, find a junk yard in Mexico with a MKII(C307) Focus that was crashed in the rear and have the front part of the car shipped to your location as parts. This way you can get what you need as needed and send the rest to recycling.

I have heard recently of other ways of getting a car from Mexico registered in the US and I am currently exploiting these rumors.

Yes, I do know what I am talking about because I am the person that looked into importing the first MKI Focus RS into the US when it was released, and came up with the magic price of $179,000 to import it through a registered importer.
