[QUOTE=hondacuraplanet;528545]Here's what I know:
1. The vehicle must be previously titled, you cannot purchase new and drive it across the border with the MSO (manufacturer's statement of origin) only.
2. You must add DRL, and have a speedometer and odometer that calculates in metric.
3. I can write you a compliance letter, I've done this before. In order for me to do so, the vehicle must have any and all bulletins and recalls performed, if there are any. You'll need proof of this, which I can obtain with the VIN number.
4. After the vehicle is registered in Canada, the warranty is null and void both in the US and Canada.
Not true 100%... I bought mine new and drove it across the border with MSO only. Not a problem. The problem was this: dealers refused to sell me a new car when they learned that I am from Canada. Because Honda USA prohibited it. But again, the difference in price in my case was almost 20k.
