    unless you have a lot of money to blow and high threshold for pain, do yourself a favor and forget bringing a car here. good luck!

    Not should, but must be. Cars older than 5 years cannot be imported. Not sure of exact date (model year) they currently are using.

    a friend of mine did this and it worked out in the end. don't get excited yet, he did it by taking the bike apart and putting it in his luggage. it took him 5 trips to DR and a few bribes to the maleteros, but he got his bike in. (he goes back and forth a lot). during the last trip where he was bring the second tire, i was with him and it was very interesting to see.

    ps. he is dominican by birth and i suspect only a dominican can pull this off. i wouldn't try it at home.

    oh, the bike was a ninja
