On the way home I declared the car at the Canadian border, had the car inspected, completed the RIV paperwork, paid duty and drove home. Aside from 13 hours of driving it was an easy process.
Old post I know, but no one clarified this. Your 97 M3 was 15+ years old when you imported it, so it is exempt from alot of the additional paperwork that is required for newer cars.
