you are comparing apples and oranges. the market size is 10X that of Canada.
we're a spit in the bucket to bmw in comparison. So the value put on cars in the southern usa is quite different then those put on here. That is why people ship cars up from the south. :-)
Clean is a car which has some surface rust, original unbastardized. They are out there but most aren't selling and if they are they are fetching a prem. those which are mint. are most probably garage queens and owners prob won't sell.
I'd leave it and "e" you would need intake, head, gasket set, dme, wiring harness I believe. maybe a few other things. motor or head doesn't need altering.
