Yeah, because if the car doesn't meet certain criteria for your country you might not be able to import it. Because I know here in the USA, if the car doesn't meet the restrictions you can't bring it in. The best you can do is import for racing purposes only, or import as a 'kit car' and put it together yourself using parts that make it legal for your area. People did this with the Lotus Elise all the time. Had it imported as parts then put Honda engines in them to make them legal. Depending on how different they are mechanically, you might be able to buy the Kappa version in your area, and get a Solstice skin imported.Zonnewende said:Got a reply as well... through Opel -the Netherlands.... Pontiac forwarded my mail to their European GM Dealership it seems.
Turns out GM Europe won't be importing the Solstice into Europe.. (is what I asked if they would)..
This is actually not bad at all for me, once I import my own, maybe through a forum-sponser dealer present here (are you listening guys??) I will be driving a one-of-a-kind vehicle in the Netherlands.
ermmmm, maybe I first wanna look into warranty issues, import rules, shipping costs, etc. :confused
I can see that turning out kinda funny. I'll trade you my Solstice skin for your Opel skin.Zonnewende said:OR
Option (d) I buy the new Opel GT on a kappa platform and swap its skin with the recessed third brake light in the trunk bodypanel with one of you friendly american guys atriot for an original Solstice skin..... How about it??? i know you want to.... :cool
Fformula88 said:Swapping skins probably would be cheaper than having a Solstice converted and certified. I remember somone on the Jeep forum talking about getting their Wrangler imported, and at the end of the day it cost them thousands of dollars to have things like lighting modified for compliance, and then have the car certified.
Don't you like the Opel styling? I know, not the Solstice, but it would be sharp enough for me if I couldn't get the Sol!
