Interesting... perhaps one of those things that were talked about but never implemented?

I imported a 2000 SVT Lightning with no issues and I have a 2004 SRT-10 Ram on it's way...

oh well, glad to see that it's not true. I might opt to have my race car sent over in this case.

Well you need to be careful there. Anything heavily modified will not pass inspection here unless you don't plan on driving it on the street or pay someone off to pass it.

Greetings....I'm thinking about bringing over a 1990 Wrangler from the U.S. Does anyone know if this is possible. I am reading about laws in Dubai.

Here is the law I was reading from ACE.org.UK

The law breaks down like this :-

The following types of vehicles are banned from these dates.
From January 1, 2009 …
cars older than 20 years
Import of cars older than 5 years
Import of heavy vehicles older than 7 years
Taxis older than 5 years
Ownership transfer of light vehicles older than 10 years
From January 1, 2010 …
cars older than 15 years

Since this is 22 years old according to the above I would not be able to bring it over.

Can anyone confirm the info....can't believe anything on the internet. ;-)
