It's not illegal. It's just BMW doesn't allow it.

I'm sure you could buy one down there, and bring it up

Get a US bank account, mailing address and I would think that would suffice

Do you know how it would work with licencing and sales tax? If I give the dealer an address within the state Im purchasing it I assume they will register the vehicle and make me pay the sales tax. If I purchase it in a different state than the address I give will they allow me to drive it to that state with temporary plates and then I can actually just drive it to the border?

It goes state by state how they handle that. As far as driving on a temp plate; legally you're supposed to get a temp plate in every state you drive through, and some states do not issue them.
Check out uship.com to get a quote on shipping it to the border, you can then drive it home from the border.

I think you have to think this through, from what I read, you are buying a brand new car
;besides all the taxes and licensing etc etc ; you should really check if the Canadian dealerships will provide the warranty, they might; at an exorbitant cost...

Technically speaking, export-destined purchases are non-taxable. However, you need to make sure you have all the requisite paperwork beforehand, and most likely apply for reimbursement after your purchase.

I read through many pages but just wanted to ask if anyone has recently purchased a 15+ yr old BMW from the states and brought it up? I'm considering one to bring up and wanted to be clear on the fees etc

RIV fee (afaik 150)
A/C fee (working or not, 100$)
taxes & duty (HST + 6.1%)

thats it.

don't forget about the daytime running light kit that you will have to add on to your 15 year or more old bmw.

had to install one on my 97 z3 that i purchased from indiana back in 2005.

there not that expensive.

No RIV fee, probably no DRL as it is older than 15 years RIV doesn't apply

No DRL.

Dcramer you sure? I still had to pay the RIV fee. You need to get the form 1, there's no way to get that without paying the fee.

you take the RIV form 1 (which says exempt - 15 years on it) to the MTO, pay HST, get a safety (and e-test if post 87) and you're on the road.

According to http://www.riv.ca/RIVExemptions.aspx it is 15 years, yes

So what fee did you pay if it is exempt ?

depends on the car, if it is an e36, then it is as simple as getting the canadian relay, and plugging it in. Although it is up behind the console so simple is a relative word.

It's a e36 , 98'. I believe I saw km on the speedo but the pic wasn't clear so I'm guessing I don't have to worry about that .
