Default Buying a Canada car in Florida.

A car that I followed for a while is up for sale, but as the title says, it’s a Canadian car. I know there’s leniency being in Florida, but what steps do I have to take? If I’m headstrong I’m getting this car.

Thanks

What would be the issue, I live in Canada and have owned 3 USDM S2000's? Are you asking about the importing process? The only thing for us is making sure the car has DRL installed or a module needs to be added. Good luck with your purchase.

I bought a Lexus ISF from Canada and ultimately had to abandon the sale (with consent of seller). It had the cat removed and would cost a bit to return the exhaust to stock but the shipping and duty fees were also pretty significant.
I found a -lot- of online resources about importing a car from Canada.
Combine that with whatever Florida requires and you should be all set.

It probably took me less than two hours to become very familiar with the process. Of course, that was more than ten minutes ago, so I've forgotten most of it.

Your local DMV can give you instructions on importing the car. It's not all that difficult.

It seems to be a mix of answers. Essentially I was going to have the current owner drive it over here in Florida, and just do the process here. Already ran the vin through my bank and they approved it now it’s just hoping DMV registers it no problem

In florida if it has 2 headlights and 4 tires, then you can register it without a problem.
