check out the www.seattleminiowners.com or SAMOA in seattle for a mini..  I would NOT import a mini or land rover at this time due to CBP being out of CONTROL.. note NO lic dealer can legally  sell a car he does NOT have on his dealer lot and US title in hand.. later bc

CONGRATULATIONS on getting the full reimbursement!  That is awesome and quiet surprising.


miniless - There are a couple Mini posted on the local craigslist here.  I check almost daily, just something to do during breaks.  If you are around Everett I'd be happy to show you mine so you know what to expect as far as size, working space, and any other of the few pointers I have learned so far.  There are also a couple of local importers who have expressed interest in importing Minis.  You could talk to them about seeing if they can get one from Japan.  But, of course, keep this thread in mind.  One company is constantly importing Skyline, Silvia, and other JDM cars with aftermarket parts (wheels, intercoolers, intake, exhaust, seats....) and they don't seem to have issues.

Washington state. Not necessarily looking hard for a mini but if one came up at the right price I probably couldn't help myself...

Also ebay wont help because by the time you get the car the 30 days has past and you cant even leave any feedback on him.

I would be very careful, he has had a few cars taken or stopped in customs. Almost impossible to get your money back. I would not deal with him again. Find a car in the states or use an importer like the werewolf.
i have imported several cars in the past but customs is getting very picky, if they see one thing they dont like they wont let you have it. Just my 2 cents worth.

Hey, I won an ebay auction by this guy for a red '81 mini. Saw the price and thought why not. I haven't paid him a dime since I did my research and found this thread. Looks like I should avoid him completely?

spitz.. I am NOT one to forget FACTs.or dates... btw  any  lic car dealer has had some folks in the past  that are NOT happy  and I  have been trader/dealer  for 44 years..  , as most cars are bought SIGHT UNSEEN  back in the day. I demand sight inspection  NOW..   to eliminate any problems..  and  why bring up BS from TWENTY years ago?? 1963 are you Stoned  or just plain STUPIC??/  all I did on this thread was try to help a new classic mini owner get his FULL refund.. and I did this for FREE.. I am OUT of here.. later b c

Maybe the wolf is thinking of someone else...

 

"Everybody should own a MINI at some point, or you are incomplete as a human being" - James May

"WET COOPER", Partsguy1 (Terry Snell of Penticton BC ) - Could you send the money for the unpaid parts and court fees.
Ordered so by a Judge
