Question Lots of Imports Due to Lack of F82 Stock

Hi Everyone,
This is my first post on here since joining. I can see a wealth of knowledge.

My question is for the Middle East (specifically UAE). From what I can see, there's a huge shortage of used ///M car stock in the UAE and as a result there are a lot of imported used cars.

Does anyone have experience they can share on purchasing and then owning imported used ///M cars here?

A couple of themes crop up:
1. Import of Japanese or Canadian spec cars
2. Everyone in the UAE wants to avoid imported USA spec cars because they tend to have a history of accidents or other issues
3. Insurance will only cover 3rd party fire and theft
4. Prices are not as low as you'd expect
5. Generally a deep suspicion on the cars history

Now, I know I've thrown out a lot of caveats, but I feel the import market wouldn't exist if people weren't buying these cars(?)

If you've got experience, please share.

Thanks all
Appreciate 0
