Looks like you can't keep it in Canada. It says you have to export it back to an EU country. Would be nice to have in Canada though !

There is no way to get it certified in Canada even as a classic or kit car?

That's a shame to have to send that car back. I'm sure they had their pockets wide open to collect all the taxes, and fees from whoever imported it. Now they can collect more taxes and fees when exporting it! Double the fun!...gotta love Canadian laws.

I might have a answer, many diplomats when transferred over to Canada are allowed to bring their cars over as well, of course they will have the red plates, I've worked on 2 of them at MB, one was a A-Class from the EU, which we don't sell here at all, and the other one came from Dubai, it looked like a normal E-Class, but it had a smaller engine, and a 1/4 steel plate protecting the oil pan, so it is possible that this vehicle is formerly owned by a diplomat.

you guys are missing that it's a Crown Asset. It was likely some type of diplomatic vehicle.

weeeeird. I hadn't looked at the pics, I just took them on their word it was a 2005. There's no such thing as a 2005 E90. That's a 2006 car. But the VIN is crazy, the 10th digit is "0". I've never seen that before. The 10th digit should be a 6 for year 2006 model. I don't know who decided to call it a 2005, they likely saw the "5" before the 0 and assumed it was 2005. Weird car. Maybe EU vehicles don't use the 10th digit as the year though??

You apparently work at BMW so why not run it through a VIN dcoder like I did?

Data for the chassis number . ' KU53450 '
Series: E90
Vehicle type : 320d
BMW- type key : VC31
Engine: M47N2
Body: Sedan
Katalogausfürung : Europe
Steering: Left
Transmission: Manually
Production: 08/2005 <-- 2006 MY

Whatever cars come here are almost always available in Europe a year earlier, I am sure the e9x was available in 2005.


I really doubt it was owned by a diplomat. Read the bottom of the page, it says the car was here for testing.

Tested at Environment Canada:

in my sales dept we can only run Canadian vehicles on our system. I could have a parts guy run it if I were at work. So it is a 2006 like I said. There's no such thing as a 2005 E90, at all. The 2006 model year started with spring 2005 production. The 10th digit being 0 is still odd for me though. Good job on the info.

"Customs agent and the container will be sealed by Customs at an hourly rate of $54.00 (charged to buyer)."

Canada, eh? what a joke.

There were 2005 E90's as they debuted in Europe as a 2005 model, so there most certainly IS a 2005 E90. This car is a euro car brought over for testing. As for the 10th digit being zero, normal for cars that are not destined for North America. Only Canada/US require the 10th digit to be the model year, europe and most of the world doesn't thus it is only a check digit and it is a "0".
