Exclamation any Canadians bring a Viper over the border?

Vipers seem to be a good deal less expensive in the States. Anyone brought one over?

Suggestions?

Cheers Rob

I did...read my posts for more details about my car, or PM me about specifics. I bought mine Jan 11 of this year - It was in my garage 7 days later. Good Luck!

Check the RIV (Registrar of Imported Vehicles) website first regarding vehicles which qualify for importation. Pre '97 Vipers dont appear on the list of available options for some reason?? I know of some guys who did import '92-'96 cars, but I believe more work is involved. RIV will require an inspection once the car has landed in Canada regardless of age. I only ended up paying shipping/brokerage + storage fees (joke - $25 per day in a "secured" outdoor US Customs lot) - snow shit all over my car... General Sales Tax at the boarder, then Provincial Sales Tax equivalent at "DMV" (ministry) in exchange for plates and CAD ownership (Title) docs.

Like I said, PM me for details.

Yes, I brought one over in 2005 and it was painless. RIV, inspected at Canadian tire and the only part I had to install was the DRL module I ordered from Chrysler.

Any Canadians interested in a set of 19/20 Iforged with tires (345 on back) black centers and polished lips?

you dont even need to order the module from Dodge. The one in some caravan's are the identical part number, so i went and snagged one from a Caravan at the wreckers for $10. They want $200+ for that module from Dodge

1. Buy car
2. Send Title copy to US border 3 days ahead of passing
3. Show Proof of Purchase/Title at US border, fill out paperwork
4. Pass border to Canadian, stop, fill more paperwork
5. Make sure car has DRL or get module from scrapyard from a Neon/Caravan/Whatever
6. Call Canadian Tires to get Provincial/Federal inspections done
7. Register car and drive it

A few google searches will explain parts in better details but this is pretty much how it went when I bought mine.

I just brought one over. it is a 2001. It was very easy. send CLEAR and CLEAN title and PAID bill of sale to USA side of border you are going to cross. Border will give you a form 1 after you pay GST. Then send recall letter and info on form 1 to RIV. RIV will send you form to goto nearest Canadian tire. Oh by the way you will have to buy the DRL relay from dodge to comply with RIV rules. Then you go get an out of province inspection...then you register the car......sounds compicated but it really is not. Border took 20 mins....C tire took 10 mins and the $204 fee for RIV. the out of province cost $119 and took 3 hours. The relay is about 200 at dodge....or you can try to install universal one which i dont recommend. Make sure to buy a non accident one or not a salvage one...because that is when nightmares occur. Good luck. make sure to car fax the car to know its history.

Hrm, nobody mentioned the letter from Dodge stating all the safety recalls have been done. I haven't imported a Dodge, but the other cars I have imported needed this letter. It has to come from the US automaker, and GM charged me 175 bucks for the letter for the Vette. (Can't remember what Nissan charged..)

It seems daunting at first, but it really isn't too hard, just be very thorough with your paperwork.

Also, the C5 we had years ago had a REBUILT title and there was no issue bringing it across, so unless something has changed, it shouldn't be an issue.

Cars that are 15 years or older do NOT need to comply with the safety standards, and is why you don't see them listed. I also believe you don't need to take it to Canadian tire either if it is older than 15 years since all C-tire does is check to make sure it has child restraints, DRL's, etc.
