Buy car in Europe

How does one go about financing a car in europe?  Stay would be 1-2 years so I think that leaves European Delivery programs out.

 

Anyone have any info?

Re: Buy car in Europe

European deliery programs limit the time the car can be used in Europe before it has to be shipped to the USA.  I believe 6 weeks is the longest allowed.

Yeah, I read 3 months is the longest at least for BMW so looking at other options.  If need be could do a personal loan.

The limits are not about financing.  They're about safety regulations, emissions controls, etc.  Cars built to US specs do not meet EU requirements.  Cars built to EU requirements do not meet US requirements.  EU countries are happy to have american tourtists come and spend money, but they do not want US spec cars operated on the road for long periods.  Think about as the difference between a tourist visa and a work permit.

I know it's not about financing.  The rest makes sense.  So exploring other options.

I've got a couple good ideas if it came down to it.

Forums posts are not provided or commissioned by FICO. Forums posts have not been reviewed, approved or otherwise endorsed by FICO. It is not FICO's responsibility to ensure all posts and/or questions are answered.
