You buy a US-spec (including California) vehicle with US accessories from a US dealer. It crosses the ocean on the same ships as all the other cars made by that manufacturer. It is trucked to your dealer by the same carriers as cars yet to be sold.

The only difference with buying it off the lot is that you drive it for awhile before its ocean voyage.

Oh - and it costs 7-10% less.

Regarding options and warranties, in general the options are the same as those offered for US-delivered cars, although in a couple of cases (mainly with BMW and Volvo it seems) some of the option "bundles" may be very slightly different; again, however, the options are cheaper for ED cars too.

Specifications- and warranty-wise, it's the same car (same radio, same tires, same everything) that you'd buy off the showroom floor. It'll just have funny looking license plates for a little while when it comes ashore. (You need to ask to keep them - great souvenir.)
