Golly, never thought of that. But i thought it was the other way around?
I know when importing a US vehicle to Canada there's a couple things we have to do for compliance ie daytime running lights and i know Canadian 370's have a extra brake/fog light in the middle of the rear bumper. But ya, it's notable for sure.
The only reason i brought this up is we are close to the Detroit border (45 minutes) and a lot of the dealers here are sending used vehicles to the States for resale, presumably to other dealers?
There is an abundance of US imported 350/370's here (Canada) that were imported by dealers when our dollar was at par or slightly higher - mine included. Surely a US car imported and then exported back would comply to the USDM?
Anyway, i'm not trying to persuade anyone. I'm not selling mine, nor do i know anyone who's selling. Just a topic of interest and i agree, caveat emptor always!
Hope all is well dkmura!
