I wish. We can only import used cars into Canada from the US. BMW Canada charges $500 to confirm there are no recalls on imported car too.

Demo's and new cars don't qualify.

It is quite common for premium cars to be imported from the US to Canada because of the considerable price differential charged by the manufacturers.

My buddy bought an M3 and a 911 and saved a $hit-load of money.

There are several companies that import cars and deal with the governmental BS paperwork for a fee.
