Only problem is shipping it over here from there! Even if it cost us half as much to get it from you it ends up costing the same or more by the time you ship it here. On the other hand there may be some "Europe Only" parts that you may have some success with.

Can't be more than a thousand bucks. Check into what kind of discount to our prices you can get, and it could be very economically efficient.

Bumpers for sure! Maybe some gauge clusters, pretty much anything that differs from USA cars.

the euro bumpers are fairly desirable because they dont have the gass shocks holding them inplace. closer to the car, better looking

Being in the Army he only has to pay the US Freight. From Europe back he's not charged for due to the APO address (all taken care of my the Military Postal Service).
