I spoke to Christine Fleisher at BMW NA and she mentioned it is simply too expensive to test the cars in NA for such a limited number of sales. It is too prohibitive in terms of cost to safety/emissions test such vehicles. Besides that, there are some things about these cars that would never get past US DOT standards.

You are better off buying one of these, importing it into the Dominican Republic and then transferring the title to a state in the contiguous US. This method makes it possible and legal.
