** [[{{Romania}} Romanian]] VW dealers refused to import until 2011 any of the spiced-up versions of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volkswagen_New_Beetle New Beetle]] - no 1.8T, no 2.0, no 2.3 V5, no 3.2 [=VR6=]. Only the smallest engines in the range could be bought, which contributed to the image of a "girl's car" or "overpriced toy".

** Malaysia is another country where automobiles are cases of this, [[GovernmentConspiracy partially due to an unfair import law put up by the government to force locally made cars down the peoples' throat]]. We did not get the Chevrolet Corvette, Impala or Camaro, only the lower end models. We did not get the Toyota Altezza. And anything by Dodge or Pontiac is but a distant dream.

** Malaysia is another country where automobiles are cases of this, [[GovernmentConspiracy partially due to an unfair import law that enforces a 300% import duty on imported vehicles[[note]]This means imported cars costs four times as much as they do in other countries- oftentimes, jacking up the price of affordable cars to extremely unaffordable levels[[/note]] put up by the government to force locally made cars down the peoples' throat]].throat, which as a result caused car retailers to not sell their proper cars and offer specially made inferior models for the market.

* Blackcurrants are considered a staple fruit flavor in Europe, especially the UK, right alongside other staples like strawberry, grape, orange, lemon, cherry, and the like. If you are an American, whether North or South, chances are you've never eaten anything blackcurrant-flavored. This is because everything blackcurrant-related, including the plants themselves, face restrictions or bans from entering the Americas due to their potential as a disease vector for white pine blister rust, which caused epidemics in the early 20th century and scared Americans of the time enough to never bring blackcurrants over again. Recently, however, processed blackcurrant products, like drinks and jam, have made their way over in limited quantities, and a breeding program in Vancouver is dedicated to producing a strain that won't spread the disease and has acceptable-quality fruit.

Hence, presently, blackcurrants are on their way up to BadExportForYou, with the breeders hoping to get above that.

** Speaking about cars made in Japan, the recent Lexus ES is an inversion. While the sales of [[MarketBasedTitle Toyota Windom]] was flopped in Japan before Lexus decided to go [=JDM=], Lexus decided to discontinue the Windom and not releasing the new ES there, even the ES was built in Japan. It was a pretty ironic example for a Japan-built car which is for export-only. Heck, Mazda's CX-9 and Subaru's BRAT were also the same cases, being made in Japan for export only, not giving to the Japanese consumers. [[SarcasmMode Sorry, Land of the Rising Sun.]] [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes You can only buy them in grey market.]]

* If you want things like Dr. Pepper or Mountain Dew in China, look around import shops in Beijing, Shanghai, or Shenzhen and hope you get lucky. For 8 yuan a can.
* Similarly, lemon sodas from Asia, like Schweppe's C+ in China and Hong Kong or CC Lemon in Japan, are devilishly hard to get in America.
