So according to what that is telling me is that i will have to get the day time running lights,and the child seat hook. I think german cars already come in metric speedometers. If thats the case i don't mind getting a 99 as i will have to do those things regardless.

Also does the modifications have to be done before i get the car into canada or can they be done after it gets here?

thanks

You can not import a car that is less than 15 years old from anywhere but USA. And still some USA cars can not be imported here. The DRL, child lock etc, that all applies to cars that are less than 15 years old and are from USA. If the car is 15+ years and it exempt from all the BS and can be imported to Canada from anywhere without doing anything to it.

If you want to import a BMW from Germany it can not be newer than April 1995.
E36 EVO M3s came out in 09/95, so until September you are SOL.

Taken from;

Importing a Vehicle into Canada

-CBSA

http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/publicati...48-eng.html#s4





Importing vehicles from countries other than the United States

You cannot import a vehicle that was manufactured to meet the safety standards of a country other than the United States or Canada unless the vehicle is the following:

15 years old or older (excluding buses);
a bus manufactured before January 1, 1971; or
entering Canada temporarily.
If the vehicle you are planning to import into Canada is less than 15 years old or is a bus manufactured on or after January 1, 1971, you must prove that your vehicle qualifies for one of the above exemptions. Details on determining the age of a vehicle, the types of temporary imports and the conditions under which a vehicle may be imported temporarily can be found in the previous section called "Importing vehicles acquired in the United States."

Exceptions

You can import a vehicle into Canada on the condition that the vehicle is designed, manufactured, tested and certified to meet the Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standards or the United States Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards, bears a statement of compliance label affixed by the original manufacturer and has not been altered, and that the certification from the original manufacturer is still on the vehicle in any of the following situations:

For a used or second-hand vehicle less than 15 years old or a bus manufactured on or after January 1, 1971

You are importing a vehicle that was manufactured in the current calendar year.
You are importing a vehicle for your personal use and you are the person who bought it new. The CBSA does not consider demonstration vehicles or used vehicles that you purchased from a car rental agency to be new.
You are importing a vehicle after its year of manufacture that you received as a gift from a friend or a relative abroad. The CBSA requires a signed document between both parties certifying that it was a gift (i.e. no money changed hands and no other valuable considerations were involved).
You are importing a replacement vehicle if your privately owned vehicle was damaged beyond repair while you were travelling abroad. To prove the extent of the damage, you must submit a statement from the insurance company and a copy of the police report.
If you are a resident of Canada who is returning to resume residence after an absence of at least one year, or a former resident of Canada who has been a resident of another country for at least one year, consult the publication Moving Back to Canada.
If you are a first-time settler to Canada and you owned, possessed and used your vehicle before your arrival in Canada, consult the publication Settling in Canada.
Other exemptions may apply as outlined in Memorandum D9-1-11, Importation of Used or Second- Hand Motor Vehicles.

For a new vehicle

You are importing a vehicle that is purchased new or obtained new in a foreign country (e.g. a manufacturer's foreign delivery program).

Note
Before importing your vehicle, you must contact both the CBSA and Transport Canada at the telephone numbers or addresses listed in the section called "Additional information" to determine if the vehicle meets Canadian import requirements
