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.
I have to look into that ... I am retired and may spend my winters in southern California ... perhaps leave the car there for a period of time.
Thanks for the info. as I said I have to look into that. Purchasing the car in Germany is not an option and leaving it there for my yearly trips parked at my
Brothers garage. Cars are more expensive in Germany I think it is based on the cost of living or how much the manufacturer can get away with it
Thanks again, Rolf
