    My guess is - Skyline is there due to a clerical mistake.

    I was under the impression that the vehicle must be 25 years old to be exempt from US compliance requirements, and pre-import to Canada in this sense does not make any difference because it does not...

    If I recall...

    I like it!

    WRX is generally styled less aggressively than EVO, but this one is finally mean enough, by my taste :)

    Imported JDM bikes are a relatively big thing in Russia, so there definitely is an established purchasing/export infrastructure in Japan, although I did not have first-hand experience with that.

    From the Canadian Customs operating releases it seems that all marine containers are checked mandatorily for radiation, though I was not able to find anything specific to RO-RO.

    AFAIK Japanese units are designed to accept Naviken (Japan-specific format) maps and use VICS (again, Japan-specific system) for traffic information.

    Yes, Canadian customs have radiation scan portals for marine containers as well as mobile/portable radiation scan units.

    I would think that vehicles arriving from Japan are scanned.
