You got to love USA-trucks to own one over here.
46000+3000(transport)+3% import-taxes and 3000(import-cost:
You have to get it to Germany first because in Belgium they only alow vehicles that already have a EU certifacte,and Belgium does not give out certifactes without EU-conformity,but Germany does,bla,bla,bla,bli,bli,bli, go figure
Then you have to get it true technical control in Belgium
then 21% vat.
and the redicules gains(up to 20000$) made by US-cars dealers(because of the above,that almost nobody nows how to do themselves,the proccess takes up to a year)
total makes for 65000 euro at 1.32
And 4000 euro for a lpg-install because premium(98 oct) is about 8.75$ per gallon and lpg is only 3$
So it's not just love it's insanity

Well Treitz3, same as with complete cars we have some "shops" here that buy parts cheap in the states and sell with big profit over here.
Since i got a US-truck for more then 12 years and know the tricks by now,i order directly true rockauto,summit,jegs and others,my new trans is from Trutech,yes i pay transport,tax and tav but then it is still cheaper then buying parts here.
I would come and live in the states but your governement is a bit like mine over here,(on that part)you have to be really rich or really poor to get in,just hardworking folks ain't worth peanuts.
