Does anyone know or have information on the importing of US made vehicles and spare parts. I heard that because of an agreement with the USA as of Jan 2010, DR customs does not charge the tax for the importing of US made vehicles OR US made spare parts. I already have a vehicle here but I need to ship in parts that are not readily available here in SD. As the shipping itself will already be expensive I want to ready myself with any foreseen or unforeseen expenses related to shipping parts into the DR.

Windeguy is right. It is not fun or easy, and still will be expensive. With the new taxes added here and the $2000USD initial lic. fee, almost all of the "savings" are gone.
I did it, not sure i would do it again.
