Re: FS 1992 S4 & Export Information

I would stay away!  Even if they could easily sell the car for only
$28,000, it would be worth their while to pay you your $26K asking price,
ship it down there for $1K (my estimate) and have $1K profit!  I would
tell them that you would GLADLY take only $26K and let them KEEP the $6500
for themselves!
