Yeah, if you do a search you'll notice this topic has been discussed extensively. US Lotus cars have a different VIN sequence that your RIV is familiar with and if it doesn't coincide with the Canadian Lotus VIN sequence, red flags are raised. Bottom line, Lotus is protecting their Canadian dealers and themselves by not allowing the importation of US cars to Canada...it sucks but you can't blame them.I heard that Transport Canada won't allow it. Is this true?
Looking to buy a 2008-2011 Elise from the US and import it into Canada.
