Exemption (bunch of options, one being over 15 years old).

and the next line is "if you have checked any of the above boxes, skip the rest of the form".

i'm nearly 100% certain this is the case. It has been a few years since i did this (and the most recent time, i immediately got arrested after processing the paperwork, so, my memory may be hazy. a story for another time).

I think 98's still have to go through RIV so the point is moot. MPH or KM doesn't matter. The real problem you will have is the letter from BMW. Last time I checked it will cost you 500 bucks, I used to be able to get them cheaper but I think BMW plugged that hole

Doesn't it go by build date which might even be in 97? I figure December of 2013.. Should put the car at 15 years unless it was built the last day of the year

You can try that argument... look it up in at RIV.ca I'm betting others have tried to use it.

I have no idea

There is no argument to be made. It goes by production month and year, always has.

my 98 328i had a build date of 03/97

So if the car has a build date earlier than December 98 I'm good and I don't need the $500 letter? I was pissed as hell last time I brought my ss from Cali and had to pay gm $500 for it. Total rip off.

correct. if its 15 years old you do not need anything from BMW period.

all you need is us export stamp (a wise man recentkly told me CBSA actually doesn't give a **** about this)
riv form 1
pay taxes (duty at CBSA, HST at MTO)
Safety
emissions

done

Has anyone recently brought a late model BMW from the US ?? Since US models have both kms/mph will RIV accept that ?? I know DRLs have to be turned on, and the child anchor installed. I know I can get a recall letter from the US for about $25..Is there anything else?? I will be traveling back and forth so the US warranty will suffice..any issues will be fixed there.

km or mph doesn't matter. I seem to recall something about not accepting the US recall letter. I'd phone RIV

I was just on the RIV web site and they say a recall letter from a US or Cdn dealer will suffice. So if the speedo is in both miles & kms, and the child anchor & DRL's are done (ll can be done in teh US), there is really nothing holding back the importation of the car. I'm looking for a recent experience.Does RIV "really" only allow BMW canada to sign off or will Cdn Tire do??
