To make a long story short, if a military member buys it, it will just be registered to him/her through the military registered drivers database, and be driven here freely with no added taxes. If a German would by the car, we would have to remove it from the military system, add it to the german system, and they would have to pay the taxes for the price of the vehicle. They could then drive it as a Euro registered vehicle. This is the easiest wah i can think to explain it. It does not have to come back directly to the states.
