Now that I have a Nevada address, I am considering importing a gray market vehicle from Germany. Has anybody been through that process with the Nevada DMV? I have read their materials but I still have questions:

1. Does the car still have to pass smog tests or is it exempt (Washoe County).
2. What inspections are done on the car when it's brought into the state?
3. Do I have to do the inspection in the county where I have an address? My address is in Washoe County but because the car will likely be brought through Southern California I will likely register the car using DMV in the Las Vegas area (or perhaps Pahrump???).

Any information (especially cautionary advice) someone can provide would be appreciated. I see a lot of gray market cars in Washington and Oregon, but can't say I've seen very many in Nevada.
