calling the fellow who imported his M Coupe

Hello,
I like to know what modifications needed to be done on the MZ3 for Canadian compliance? Does the US version have DRL?

I imported mine...only needed DRL....

with a VIN get BMW to mail you the import letter

if they ask you for the label...just use a digi camera take a high res pic of an actual label...and print it to sticky or a iron-on sticky...stick it on to pass the Can Tire inspection

when I did mine...they only made sure I had the DRL...they were so amused with my SHOE...and very happy to see it...some guy from Can Tire thought its the Z1...

maybe i had it easy?...

james were you paranoid to have the CTC fellas inspect the car? Did they take it out for a drive? Or was it just purely up on a hoist?
Also how much was the inspection?
as for the stickers, I am thinking to rip the ones from my other car and paste it on.
