Hi! The updates are: I paid $7.800 for EPA/DOT fees and conversion about a month ago. And just today JK send me a parts price quote which is little bit over $13.000. Pretty big list actually. How do you think, why would they need to replace exhaust manifold, both bumpers carriers, shock absorbers?Those are pretty close to what I paid. Some of the fees are based on the value of the car. My BT was imported as a $10k car.
Also I asked them about the dashboard and the answer was not encouraging: "It is usually modified or replaced but the UK cluster does not have warning systems that are required for compliance." And as of today: "Note the non-Alpina instrument cluster. This will be required, as Alpina does not make an instrument cluster with proper indicator lights (even the UK version).
I will try to upload images of the parts quote later.
