How much interest in imported euro bimmers?

I wanted to get an idea of the interest people would have in imported bimmers from europe. To my understanding, you can register a car from europe in Canada as long as it is 15+ years old. I am looking into cars such as the e30 m3. My first look into it appears that with shipping, it would come out to approximately $15,000 CAD. Any interest in these types of cars?

Are you thinking about bringing these in for people or just as a one shot deal. I have been working on a deal to get three Rallye golf in next year.

I'm looking on importing one for myself, and I wanted to see how much interest there is. Depending on the interest, it might be a one time thing, or I might do it a few times. Right now I just want to get an idea of the amount of interest there is in this.

THe only way that I know of that you can bring a younger car in, is if you move from Europe, and you bring your own car with you. I think another loophole is that in the states you can bring a car in from Europe with way less problems.....so if you bring a car from Europe to US, register it in the US, then re-register it in Canada.
