After college (in the 80s), several friends with a passion for German cars had purchased used grey market vehicles. I did some research and found several grey market cars for sale in the classifieds. Some made their way to US soil because the owner purchased it while working in Europe and they brought it home with them. I still remember my friend's 1971 Mercedes coupe with its speedometer in kilometers per hour. With the exception of the "classics" section of the classifieds on Web sites like this one, it is very rare to see grey market cars listed for sale. I am not sure if there is a specific cause or reason. Maybe the Government regulations don't permit expats and military personnel to bring EU models home to the US. As I read postings here and on other forums, I sense a common desire among other BMW enthusiasts to have EU models brought to the US. Whether its the 1-Series sport wagon or a twin-turbo diesel powered 5-Series, there seems to be a demand that BMW is failing to meet. Remembering my friend with his grey market Mercedes, I can't help wonder if there is an opportunity for a grey market now. Is there a market for used 120d or 535d models? I would love to see more diesel drivers who can achieve Prius-like fuel efficiency, but can quickly accelerate onto the freeway. With so many quality BMW-certified mechanics in major metropolitan areas, I would love to make a deal for them to service 120d and 535d models and start my own business bringing quality used cars to the US. My question is whether car club members who have posted their desire for these cars would purchase them if they were available.
