    Default European cars

    Just wondering what the procedures are to import a specific car model, not sold by the Canadian dealer, into Canada? For example, BMW Canada doesn't carry the new 330 D. Would it be possible to purchase one in Germany and have it ship to Canada?

    First expensive watches.

    But why on earth would anyone want an overpriced 3.3 liter diesel beamer ??

    Don't they sell the M series over there?? Its also highly overpriced compared to for example a GT-R.. but it does at least "move" :-)

    0-100 in 6,7 sek.. 231hp baah, I say

    The newest 330d is supposedly not quite a sloth though.

    245bhp @ 4000rpm
    384 lb ft @1750rpm
    49mpg
    0-62mph: 6.1sec

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pVqv25Tijo 1000HP skyline, and thats barely stretching the Skylines RB26DETT. There are others at 2000HP: D so much for VEYRON.
    Japan-Germany : 2-0

    I am pretty sure you will see some "tuned" R35s in a few years as well, hint hint :P

    Or maybe I could take my Veryon 2.0 to the tuner, for some higher quad-turbo boost etc.. ha ha :-)
