Importing Scirroco

OK - so id like to get a Scirroco from Canada. Has anyone done this and what does it take to really do it legally? Or just get one and drive it anyway?
I would get another Golf, but they don't have any more two door versions. At least that I can find. If I could find a new 2015 somewhere, I'd get that. - Buuuutt--- cant find one hidden in the back corner of some dealer lot anywhere.

First off, they have new sciroccos in Canada?
Second, if Iím not mistaken, you would be unable to register it in the US because it essentially has not been vetted by our government safety bullshit.

The answer is no.

HPA got them to North America and was able to get them to certain states that are more friendly to kit cars. They did not just import and sell Euro Scirroccos. They imported rolling chassis and then went to work installing 3.2 and 3.6 engines and tons of mods etc and selling as KIT car. Tricky to do and their cars back in 2010 or so when they did this were going for around 70,000 to 100,000 plus US dollars depending on what you wanted in your KIT.

Interesting! Thanks for the link, as with most things then itís down to money,
this thread is starting to make me wonder why I totally overlooked the scirocco when I bought the GTI? I didnít even consider it!
