So the car is originally from the US. The Carfax has a note that says it was registered in New Jersey at one point. But it's been in Canada for at least the last 4 years. There's also an odometer discrepancy from its first year of life! Probably a clerical error though. The car only has 47k km/29k miles.

Now I'm trying to figure out if I can get out of paying duties at the border. Since it was built in the US, shouldn't have to, right? I've also read that I might need to prove it's been registered in the US before though. Not sure the owner would've kept the PO's registration records... heh.

If all goes well and I can negotiate the price down some, hoping for a cross-country road trip soon! It's too bad the Canadian $ is stronger than ours right now. This little color whim of mine could end up costing me quite a lot more than if I just bought the Interlagos Blue one only 400 miles away instead...
