I have a Canadian friend living partly in California during the winter time (he has a house there). Should I take up winter residence in California and then order a ED thru a US dealership .... Hmmmm I wonder if that works
I did ED when I was working in the US (saved over 7K off regular MSRP on a 335xi and had an epic vacation). Just faxed a dealer the copy of my work visa and my lease agreement for the place where I lived. I actually placed the order before I was physically in the US, but had papers to show that I'd be a US resident on the date the car is ready. Also, if you stay there for certain time (two years, but not sure) and own the car for that long, you can bring it back in tax free.
