    Importing a disco ii diesel into the u.s....impossible.............???

    2002 DII SE7, 70K miles ( 120KM) Turbodiesel. Unusual, with 2003 front end and some VERY unusual alloy wheels.

    Is it next to impossible, even if titled somewhere else ?

    Short answer: yes impossible.
    Long answer: I am sure there is a way to register it somewhere in some middle of nowhere county, not California for (almost) sure. The problem with under 25 years is that you need to meet EPA requirements and Td5s are not legal here... so it could get expensive to do all the testing required.

    If someone can prove me wrong I am all ears (and I will start shopping for my 90 Td5)

    I was afraid of that.
