So you're not getting it from the U.S. anymore Wild? I know the dollar isn't as favorable anymore.
The US dollar kept getting stronger and I was getting nowhere with figuring out how to get the car across the border.
I found plenty of info on doing it in BC and Alberta, but it didn't apply to Ontario. Here, I couldn't find any insurer who would insure it based on the VIN. They wouldn't insure it until it was registered here, and it couldn't be registered until it was physically here.
I'd talked to some auto brokers and stuff that do importing, but it all ended up driving up the costs.
When I first looked into it and did the math, the car was going to cost me almost exactly the same thing to buy it in the US as to get it here... but I'd have got the nav system included.
As time went by while I kept researching it, it got more and more expensive. When it got to be well over $1500 more to get it in the US, it became less and less worth while until it just didn't make any sense at all.
Finally, someone here brought out a dash mounted screen that looks exactly the same as the OEM nav screen so I figure I can combine that with a Garmin GPS unit and basically get what I wanted in the first place. Then... as a complete bonus... they announced that we'd be getting more than just red and white here so I went ahead and ordered the blue one.
