Just imported my first car from the USA this week,a 2007 Shelby GT. The process was easy make sure it's on the admissible RIV list and has no major mods.
Day time lights are easy to turn on but the dealer has to call ford for the code, ford requires the import number before they give the code.
The cost are: GST : $220 for a Federal inspection which you need to get before registering the car pay for it at the border if not you have to send transport Canada the money and wait for FORM 2 to be sent to you.
Pay at the border and you can download it from the net. When you register the car you pay PST.
Here is what you need to license the car:
1: Title to vehicle send original to USA Customs 72 hours ahead
2: Bill of sale send original to USA Customs 72 hours ahead
3:Form 1 from Canada customs
4:Form 2 download on line (if you pay the fee at the boarder)
5:Federal inspection done (form 2 done at Canadian tire)
If I forgot something someone will let you know.
