As you look at Sinister Diesel at MKMCustoms.com and think about getting a diesel car, you are probably going to do some research and find that most of these cars are being made in Europe. They are not being made – at least not to the same extent – in the United States. If you love the European cars, what are your options for getting them? Are you able to buy them where you live, and what should you do to get one in your possession? A few different options that can answer these questions are listed below.
The first thing to note is that many car companies from Europe also have plants and headquarters over in the United States. The cars that you buy are not being imported; they are being made in the States and then shipped out to dealerships. Some are being made overseas, but they are being assembled in places like Brazil or China and then sold through these US offices to US citizens. Just because a car has the name of a European company on the wheel does not mean that it was made in that company’s country of origin.
The downside to all of this for those who like diesel cars is that the automaker may not produce those diesel options for the US market. Even though the company does make diesel cars, they are just being made in Europe and kept there, while standard gas-powered models are being made for the United States. The cars could be identical in almost all other ways, from the leather-trimmed interior to the size of the wheels, but the engine that you find under the hood is still quite different. What should you do to get the car that you really want with the diesel engine that you desire?
One option is simply to buy the car overseas and then have it shipped to the United States. You can do this with any car as long as you are not bringing it in to resell it, as a way of making money. You might be able to order it without leaving the United States. You might have to go to the country where the cars are sold and buy it in person, setting up the shipping options while you do so. Either way, you can get the car that you truly desire and have it at home.
