    (Minor correction - it may be the first yellow Roadster in Canada, but there's another one here in Ottawa. I've even got video of me chasing it Track Day - Page 2)

    $50.000 is a great price, but I didn't know Canada now used 1/10 of a cent coins (I know the Canadian dollar has appreciated, but I didn't think it appreciated that much).

    They're asking $139,500, the $50,000 is the value of the options. They must be considering Sport as an option to come up with $50K.

    #945 was destined for Canada too. And I don't think the 2.5 switchover happened until about #964.

    These have Candian VINs:
    #902
    #903
    #904
    #905
    #906
    #907
    #908
    #909
    #919
    #920
    #922
    #923
    #928
    #937
    #938
    #939
    #942
    #945

    I doubt this one is still available, but the Tesla store in Yorkdale has a couple of Certified Pre-Owned Roadsters for sale.

    My understanding is that it is trivially easy to move a Canadian spec car to the USA, but not so much the other way.

    I believe you need daytime running lights and km/mph speedometer conversion are the obvious requirements.

    And some sort of Canadian Tire inspection thing.

    Not sure if Roadster is made in USA, if it is, no duty but there's GST.

    That was a few years ago when I looked into importing a car to Canada (ICE, not Roadster).

    Never considered importing the other way around.

    Canada has an immobilizer requirement now, and people are having to add aftermarket devices when they import cars. The rules are strict and even the brand-new Model S had to be upgraded to meet the requirements. The rules were introduced because many Canadian cities have been having huge car theft problems.

    As far as I'm aware, Canadian spec vehicles meet all US requirements. Daytime running lights aren't required in the USA but they are allowed.

    Transport Canada also has a list of cars that are approved to be moved across the border. Unfortunately the Roadster isn't on that list, it was only approved for sales of new cars.

    Thanks for the info! I'll pay a visit to the Yorkdale center once I get the chance.

    I really hope Tesla opens a store in Vancouver this year. :frown:
