Just read an article over on CleanMPG, talked about new container ship and price to ship 2200lbs of material over the big pond. Answer $600.00. (I image wholesale, perfered vendor price). But anyway, has anyone researched a method of purchasing a Europe spec'd vehicle (without tax) with a smaller engine and shipping here. I.E. how long would it take for me to if I bought the 1.3L Yaris from Europe shipped here vs. the local 1.6 or 1.8L (I'm guessing) to break even with $3.00 gas price.

Eccomoder bulk purchase of Euro spec vehicles and ship to US. Sounds like a good community service.
