Thanks for the updated and well detailed post.
I've imported 3 cars, 1 BMW and 2 Range Rovers.
They were all "rare" in their ways so it made it "worth it" overall though, I don't think it really is worth it.
I also had some hook ups so the Canadian tire process was just a matter of me showing up.
You can also get the letters of compliance from the dealers in the states to save some $$$
