Leasing a car from Texas?

I have been trying to find deals for a friend but the car they want is from out of state, specifically Texas. I have been reading around and it seems like Texans have to pay the sales tax on the full price of the vehicle and not the amount that gets depreciated. Does that still apply to me if I live in socal and try to have the car shipped here? Anyone have experience doing something like this before?

Sales tax applies for buyer locale. Texas buyer would pay Texas tax on out of state deal. CA buyer would pay CA tax on out of state deal.

Thanks for the quick reply!
