I have just bought a 1994 Mini on Ebay from a super helpful guy in Cardiff, and I'm going to export it to my home in Ohio USA... However, to import a car that doesn't meet USA emissions and crash test standards etc, it needs to be 25 years old. I bouhgt this 1994 thinking that it's 25 years old, so no problem... But it seems that they go by either build date or first registration date. This Mini was first registered on 1st November 1994, so isn't 25 until 1st November 2019.... Bummer!
So I am trying to find the build date, which must obviously be earlier, so I can import this Mini as soon as possible. Anyone know how to find the build date?
The VIN number is SAXXNNAYCBD098063
