Hey guys,

Any of you from Montreal and bought a Subaru in the States? If so, I'd like some referals if you had a good service/price.

thanks!

I did at Burlington Subaru. They don't give the best price but they take care of physically sending someone at the border with the proper papers 72 hours in advance.

Might be hard to locate now, but does anyone have an electronic copy of the RIV admissible vehicles that was just prior to Nov. 1? I bought on Oct. 31, but need some backup to try and get my 2008 Toyota Prius through...

PM would be fantastic, and thanks in advance.

I have heard only great things about Xan at Manchester Subaru. It is about 4 hours away but you might save some $$$ as he usually sells at rock bottom prices as compared to Burlington Subaru. He also takes care of all the paperwork.

Hi RFDers, I'm purchasing a brand new G37 but it does not have DRL. How do I get the DRL to be enabled?

Canadian Tire can install the feature while they do the inspection. It's just a relay.

I would agree 100% - you're spending a lot of money on a car, don't let CT touch it !!!

CT can install a generic 3rd party DRL relay which works by splicing into a few cables (low beams, high beams, wrap around one plug, etc) and it's only about $25 plus install but do yourself a favour and bring it into the dealership to get the proper module for your car rather than a band-aid solution. Probably cost you a few hundred dollars but I think it's well worth it.

I would stay away from CT touching a brand new car!

Why can't the US dealer do it?

Actually if anyone has it, forward it off to www.carburner.com and/or www.ataleoftwoprices.com. If those guys don't want it, send me a PM and I'll host it on my machine so that others who want it can get it easily.

ha ha...I have to agree with that comment :D
I would phone a few Infiniti dealers around you and get a quote. It might be $300 more then Crappy Tire but you'll be happier!

As I mentioned before, I guy at work imported a 2008 Altima Coupe and got the DRL's installed at Nissan (also an Infiniti dealer) for $250 Parts and Labour. Also from what I've read and seen personally, the Crappy Tire staff hardly even check for DRL's (around here at least)
