Finding a Car

When looking for a car to import, it's important to do a little research beforehand to ensure you know what prices the market is demanding for such a car, both in the US and at home. Some background market knowledge will save you money in the long run and make the final decision on the car you purchase that much easier for you.

Below we've listed a few of the best web sites to keep an eye on, both for doing your research and for finding the perfect car for you at the right price.
