Although buying an import should not present any problems in itself, there are nevertheless some things that should be checked before actually driving it, since you can never be sure that something did not break during shipment and subsequent storage. Below are some pointers on what to look out for, and what to check/inspect before driving it on public roads.
If you're buying from our stock, all of these precautions have been taken. If you've gone through our auction system and we're delivering your dream to you, all of these precautions have been taken. The only instance where this checklist hasn't already been done by us is in the event that you are able to pick up the car from a port yourself (to save a little money).
This checklist is to reassure all of our readers/clients, and present useful information when buying an imported car (or any used car, for that matter).
By this time, the temperature gauge should read normal, and there should be no smoke from the tail pipe. If this is the case, congratulations are in order, and are you are well on your way to building a competitive car, without having to reinvent the wheel!
