the color of the Dakar Yellow seems to be a bit distorted due to the sunshine or overcast weather.

Also, the Lime Yellow is an amazing color, much nicer than it appears in the photos. This is a color that is far from Phoenix Yellow found on the E46 M3's.

The only one that would be a tough sell is the Lipstick Red...the color does have a tendency to turn pink or orange in changing light conditions.

The brass metallic looks pretty good. It reminds me of Sepang Bronze.

You should check your facts. A friend of mine just bought a '12 E93 335i with 1140 miles on the ODO - no issues with warranty. It was used, but from a Dealer.

I believe the the key is that Dealers are not supposed to sell brand new vehicles that they know will be exported.

BMW Canada charges a minimum of $1995 for freight AND PDI. Since we are a country of only 35million, our buying power is much lower.

ALSO, in Canada, the freight and PDI charges are combined so we don't pay for freight and then get charged another amount for PDI like our neighbours to the south.

US dealers are allowed to sell used cars to Canadians. New cars they are not because BMW USA (and all other automakers) require a US address (not just a PO box even) on file even if paying cash. They aren't allowed to ship parts across the border either.

As for people buying BMWs in the US and importing, it is up to the Canadian dealer whether or not they want to honour the warranty. Free maintenance is a whole other thing. Canadian dealers will not honour free maintenance because they can't bill BMW USA for it.

In terms of price, BMWs are actually very similarly priced when buying new. Used is another story. But with new, once you take in to consideration the cost of duties (6.5%), importation fees, and all other fees associated the price is the same, if not more for buying in the US. I know this because it was cheaper for me to buy my car in Canada where the price was discounted from 50k to 42k. You just need a good rapport with your dealer to get deals that good, and flooding the market with US cars is not the way to do it.

I drive by this dealership all the time... They have had the lipstick red and the bronze on their lot forever!! Yellows were there quite a while too. Would take a real whacko to go for one of these colors, they loook even worse in person.
I can't believe they haven't tried to drastically lower the price on these aberrations.

This. The cars have been there forever and not even a price drop. Their courtesy driver referred to the bronze one as "pond scum green" lol. Lipstick red is hideous in person
