    I did not need DOT lights, they were E code and were fine. However, the LF headlight had to be aimed way down to pass. I recommend USDM lights when available, if you want to see at night and not be a...

    That's what I tried to do. I drove the car home with a permit and gave it a once over and activated the headlights as
    DRL with a relay. I then used a second permit to drive to a shop for inspection...

    ICBC will give you two permits. One from port to garage/your place. And a second permit (I needed 2nd permit to take my car to OOP garage). After that you're out of luck, you need to tow the car, no...

    The USDM headlights have two bulbs/sockets on the outermost corner, substantially bigger, and thus the mounting bracket to the inner fender is completely different. Also, if you use OEM USDM HID...

    Yes, those should pass, but sometimes you're at the mercy of the person doing the inspection and their level of knowledge. DRL's aren't necessarily headlights at all. For example look at first gen NA...

    I'll tell you my experience... The LHD JDM beam pattern is wrong. I see people using the JDM light assemblies, but they are not the best and may not pass OOP inspection unless you aim them at the...

    Advise WWL (Gloria) and be sure to mention which fax number you tried. My understanding of the new soil inspection procedure is they only bill if they inspect. Without all cars being inspected, how...

    Follow the example of your previous Form 1?

    The example on the first page is the old form anyways. Do your best at customs and ask for help if needed. You can do it! ��

    I would chose one of the vendors in Canada who also sell on EBay. You can research their feedback on EBay, see that they're reputable, and close the deal over the phone (not Ebay). Also, you avoid...

    In BC I paid 6.1% duty and 5% GST, and don't forget another $100 excise tax on the HST. When I later registered the car with the Insurance Corp of BC, I paid the 7% PST. Ontario should back the GST...
