    Default New to Germany, would like to import my 240z from America. Specifics needed.

    Hi everyone...hopefully there is an "everyone" here...

    I am finishing my 6th week as an American expatriot living/working in Germany. I have managed to contact the TUV to begin discussions of importing my '72 240z into the country, but with a short list of bolt-on improvements I would like to install on the car, as well as small engine performance improvements, I fear that the only way I will be allowed to drive the car is if I leave it 100% stock and abandon all plans for improvement. If anyone has experience with improving/modifying a z car in Germany and obtaining an "erlaubnisbestaetigung", please send me a PM. Thank you!

    I got an "earlashingandunbeating" from my wife when I bought my car. Similar, but not helpful in your case. Good luck!
