Soyez bienvenus au site. Appréciez votre Camaro quand vous le recevez et êtes sûrs de poster quelques photos avec optimisme autour d'une plage topless.

Salut Punk_rider, effectivement, je la fait importer moi même, elle va me revenir au total a un peu moins de 45.000 €.

Je suis également de la région parisienne, de Seine et marne

I hope I got the right translation on that.



For you that don't feel like looking it up I said: Welcome to the site. Enjoy your Camaro when you get it and be sure to post some pics hopefully around a topless beach.
hey a6pk2go, Nice translation ^^

So don't worry, when I 'll get it, I'll make here lot of pictures

Welcome to the sight. So how much did the camaro cost and how much is itgoing to cost to get it shipped? Also did you have to order onlineor is there chevy dealer in France. Sorry if these questions are stupid just curious. Only time I've been out of country was to go to Nagoya, Japan and probably saw 2-3 American Vehicles the whole time I was there.

this is not a stupid question

I bought my camaro from a french seller who is located in USA, Atlanta.

So for the 2LT model with sunroof, Automatic gearbox and rally stripe, it cost to me is around 45.000 €, so 64.200 $ ... (this price is the total amount that it cost to me, chevy + shipping + french "fee")

It's very expensive for you, but for me (for french drivers) that's cheap ^^

French Chevrolet dealers don't sell the camaro... the corvette yes, but not the camaro So we must buy it on USA ...

Sorry but 45'000€ is not cheaper even if u are European like me! LOL The same car in USA costs 19'000€... The dealers (read: importers..) make this conversion as I read here around: 1 USD = 1,5 EUR + 10000€ to calculate the Camaro price in Europe.. I'm going to have my 2LT Camaro in the late September... it costs me 26'000 because the importer is a friend of my colleague.. (the price includes Shipping, and Italian fee..) and the optionals are the same of your 2LT..
These dealers have a really good business but is still not cheaper for us. Congratz for your Scirocco... I think is a great car

Thanks for awnsering my Question and when it arrives take some pics and post for us. Also I viewed your garage from my I.phone so not best picture but I like the car you currently have. Never saw one like that. What type of car is it and who builds it? Also I had saw a posting before of a camaro somewere in Europe or it may have been Australia not sure it's been a while but 2 of tail lights the 2 inner ones I believe were Yellow if I'm not mistakin but I was wandering if your car would be like this? & last question from when I went to japan I recall driver side being switched is it same way in France and I don't guess your Camaro will be built like this since it's being shipped from Atlanta. But is other GM vehicles like the Corvette have drivers side on the left or right side of the vehicle? Sorry again for silly Questions just not everyday you get a chance to talk to Camaro fans from other countries but it's cool this awesome sight has people from all over the world and everybody is cool people. Well I'll quit babbling on and hope you get your car soon so you can enjoy!

In france, the driver side is always on the left car side, like USA

So that's not a problem

Rocky te demande si tu vas laisser ta camaro en 4 feu rouges arrières ou la franciser en 2 rouge pour les stop et 2 orange pour les cligno, on a vu ici une foto d'une maro en Suede qui était comme ça je crois.

45 000 tout compris j'espère? J'imagine la réponse déjà mais quitte à faire venir la voiture pour un cout de francisation et importation quasi identique, pourquoi ne pas avoir pris une 2SS au lieu de la LT?

NB y'a un garage pas loin de chez toi qui vend une 2SS avec ground effect pour 74k ... délirant ...

Perso, j'attends (j'espère ne pas attendre toute ma vie) une Z28, il me faut 550 chevaux ...

Depuis que mon frère a planté sa ZR1, ca me manque!

Merci punk_rider pour la traduction

Donc non, pour l'instant je ne compte pas mettre des feux orange pour les clignotants. elle restera avec ses 4 feux rouges.

pour les 45.000 €, oui c'est tout compris. et je ne le fait pas par moi meme, car sinon il aurait fallu que j'aille aux états unis pour acheter la voiture, faire tous les papiers, reserver une place dans le bateau, prendre toutes les assurances, l'ammener au bateau. bref, faire tout ça serait le parcours du combatant. c'est pourquoi je suis passé par une personne (un francais) qui se situe a atlanta et qui exporte des voitures US vers la france. donc les 45.000€ comprennent le prix de la voiture + toutes les démarches, papier ect + le transport + les taxes de dédouanement et la TVA francaise + l'homologation et carte grise.

le modèle que je fais venir des USA couterais chez le revendeur près de chez moi 68/69.000 € pour un 2LT comme le miens

So I will try to translate for you, american friends

I keep 4 red tail lights ^^

and I explain to Punk_Rider what means 45.000€ for my camaro.

So I must pay the car (oh ?? ^^), the shipping cost, french fee, and my seller in USA.

ok thx! a priori ca me parait expensive et j'ai peur que le gars aux US se sucre un peu beaucoup mais je peux me tromper.

En tout cas félicitations à toi, et oui (sans vouloir faire l'ancien combattant de 30 ans) le V6 à 23 ans est à mon avis bien suffisant, assez pour la planter un jour ou l'autre!!! LOL

quand tu auras la tienne pense à prier pour une Z28 que j'ai moi aussi droit à a part!

See you on the streets

bah non, moi je ne trouve pas cela très très cher, quand je vois que a 15 km de chez moi ils me vendent le même modèle que moi, mais a presque 25.000 € plus cher ....

Tu es sur paris ou aux états unis actuellement ?

Americancarcity? C'est des voleurs!

Je vivais à New York dans le temps mais aujourd'hui à Paris ... Si seulement ils avaient sorti la camaro plus tot!

C'est TA voiture sur ta sig?

Sinon tu as raison pour les feux arrière, les feux oranges c'est atroce et même si c'est illégal, mon brother avait laissé 4 feux rouges sur sa corvette et il n'a jamais été embêté...

PS: pense à faire gaffe avec ta voiture quand tu l'as gare, on est en France, y'a beaucoup de connards et de jaloux qui peuvent te mettre des cousp de portière ou pire des coups de clés juste parce que tu as une voiture qu'ils ne connaissent pas

Congratz!!!

EDIT: Looking at the Licence Plate I can see that the seller is using the "6-months-old" trick to import the cars... He will not pay the French Fee probably...
I dunno if this rule is valid for France too, but in Italy if you import a car that is 6 months old and has more than 6000km the car is considered "used".

The importers often have stocks of car, registered at their name... after 6 months they ship this stocks to Europe... before to do this they change the miles counter to the same value of 6000km. When the car is in Europe the change back to 0 the counter... They don't pay the VAT but they still ask you to do that... Be carefull! ASK the documentation that show how much they payed in customs!! It's your right in UE!

Rygain,

Welcome to the site! We do have the new Camaro and ours still get noticed. Can't imagine what it will be like for you.

Best of luck and stay in touch!
