I believe that someone federalizing a car means that it is tested for emissions. What country are you from? Are you importing a car?

A non-US car needs to be federalized. That means it must comply with all regs for the same car built for the US market-door braces, catyltic converters, etc.

It can be a very expensive proposition and may not always pass the regulations!

About which car are you inquiring?

I think Boxer's estimate is a little low on the conversion process, and for California there are additional requirements.

So you could have a car Federalized and then not be able to register in CA!

Some time ago Symbolic in LaJolla had a beautiful euro 360 spider that was previously owned by TV personality Jesse James. It was a stunner! I was seriously interested.

It could not be sold in CA because it did not have a CA bar code (certification).

That cooled my thinking.
