Dude its a 1.9 Afn 110bhp.Impressive fuel economy numbers for an all wheel drive v6 tdi. Do you have any concerns about sourcing parts? At first I thought you might have an issue selling it down the road however 1) I doubt that will happen any time soon 2) with all the guys following your thread I am sure there will be at least a half dozen people waiting in line for it.
Why the 12mm pump? Is there a bigger turbo on the car that i missed or is that a stock item?
I don't have direct experience with your specific scenario, but IMO, the rules seem to leave some leeway for the agent - in your favour or otherwise. Evidently you spoke to someone with a liberal interpretation of the rules and as long as you deal with that same person when you go with the right paperwork, you should be fine. Another agent may not be as accommodating. The only sure bet is research, preparation, more research and more preparation. If you want to save yourself headaches and not risk being forced to ship the vehicle back to Germany on your dime or have it crushed, I'd look elsewhere.I will be visiting Canada with my vehicle. Do I have to formally declare it for importation at the Canadian border?
No. Section 7(1)(b) of the Motor Vehicle Safety Act (MVSA), allows a visitor to temporarily enter Canada with a motor vehicle without complying with the MVSA if the vehicle is used only by a visitor to Canada or a person passing through Canada en route to another country.
You alone may use the vehicle.
Any change in your status, such as receiving permanent residency in Canada, may make your vehicle inadmissible and you will be required to export or destroy it.
You may not sell or gift the vehicle while in Canada.
The vehicle cannot remain in Canada longer than the time limits allowed under your temporary entry.
