How did you find it and get it shipped here? Did you go through a broker or did you find it yourself through online searches? Any issues importing it?

Do US based Audi dealerships give you trouble for servicing the car?

Looking at doing something similar myself for a BMW.

I had a good friend over there who bought it on behalf, we just had a shipping company put it in a Car container and sent over here.

We dont have it serviced by Audi but by a exotic specialist, due to it being modified(turbo). i've owned it for 2 years and it's been fantastic, even drove it daily to work for a couple of weeks, but also love my Focus RS, Wee rocket.

Im personally not a fan of BMW, too many first hand experiences.
