My BRZ went like on BaT today - Wish me luck!

Title says it all. Any final bid guesses?

Lax emissions and cheaper registration. The vehicle is owned and registered to a llc based in Montana that I am a member of. No more bi-annual smog or excessive CA registration fees. Many also do it because there is no sales tax in MT.

Registering in Montana and driving the car consistently elsewhere is also illegal. If you get caught in California, it's expensive.

Was about to say that's super illegal, also you gotta either tell the state trooper or officer that inevitably pulls you over the truth about how long the car has been in California as well as how long you have been there. Or you lie and get caught and it ends up even worse for you.

Also even worst case scenario, if "everyone" does that then a case gets made against whatever LLC is registering these vehicles and operating them in other states and they get raided or subpoenaed or something like that.

Looks to be an impressive and bare no expense build on the engine and mechanicals.
Plus it doesn't have any tacky, latest from Japan body kit slapped on. Just balls.

That kind of power though, really is best utilized on a car with 11" wide rear wheels, semi-slick. Of course the necessary body kit changes the character of the vehicle (not everyone's cup of tea).

So, this might be considered a sleeper for someone who just loves knowing he has it. Getting it to the asphalt is an entirely different thing.

The biggest and most expensive mod to really make this all work is relocating the engine from the front to over top the rear axle. That will necessitate some suspension work, which I didn't recall seeing.

This has been going on for years. Its nothing new for people who import super cars that arent legal or to get around the tax. I think there has already been a lawsuit but it got nowhere.

Depends on how you do it. When done properly itís 100% legal. When done improperly itís not legal and you could be subject to back registration fees plus minor penalties at worst.

Iíll tell him the truth and provide the proper documents such as registration and proof of insurance and be on my way.

Do you think rental car companies register all their cars in the state which they are operated? Or do they maintain proper insurance and registration in the state where their llc is based?

I do appreciate the pro bono work from fine legal minds of ft86club
