    Importing non-US 2002s to California

    I also brought in a 1972 BMW 2000tii Touring (recently up on BAT) back in 2002 from Amsterdam.

I pointed out that the words for "title" and "registration" are pretty easy to figure out, plus they look like a title and registration. Not a good answer. After witnessing 30 minutes of searching through countless volumes of information, I was relayed my fate. "We're going to take all of these documents and send them to Sacramento. If you get a title and registration in the mail, that's a good thing. If you get a letter or phone call, that's a bad thing. Pay at the next window." One month later, I received a title and registration in the mail. Thankfully street-legal...
