Has anyone brought a car form the states to BA? If so what were the steps to do this? Is there a maximum value? Time it took? etc....

Thanks in advance

Definitely not worth it.... i called shipping companies and they told me i would have to pay for 82% of CIF amount + $4500 to the shipping company for a 20 foot container. Below you can read what i found on the internet.

Question
I would like to take my car to Argentina. How do i find out the value of the car in Argentina and what my final charge would be? I have a '03 surburban which kelly blue book gives me a value of $13,000.
Thanks, Carla

Dear Carla, The cost of taking a car to Argentina is this.
35 % of the CIF amount (CIF = cost of the car + shipping cost + insurance) thats only for customs taxes
On top of that you'll have to pay 21 % of the CIF amount (federal taxes) + 11% of 13000 (income tax).
So, at the end you'll be paying 80% of the CIF amount.
Not a good deal.

Is this because you are importing and putting it on an argentine license plate?
