importing a bmw
recently brought an x5 up from the US. Local BMW dealer said I needed a new instrument cluster (around 1300), then BMW would charge me 500 for clearance letter.
Received clearance proof in US, A letter on any BMW dealer letterhead will do.
It took a mechanic minutes to reprogram car so lights are always on.
Cost almost nothing.
lets see give a bmw dealer 2000, or spend almost nothing. Your choice, plan ahead
