The new 406's are in Canada.

206's and 306's are not.

I didn't think there was a peugoet dealer in BC though.

I believe it was a diplomat's car before. How it has normal plates on it now I don't understand...

I highly doubt this. Peugeot does not have a presence in North America at the moment.

That might be White Rock. It's an old Peugeot or Renault dealer from the time when they *were* sold here.

That guy that brought it in was a diplomat, and last time i talked to him, he said he was thinking of selling it. He also has a 206CC. Got pics of it, but not in comp ><

I know this is a retardedly old thread but Ive seen this car too, and others and I WANT ANSWERS lol

Few months ago I saw a EUROPEAN 2005 Ford Ranger 2.5 TdCi with regular BC plates. Guy said he bought it off some guy that imported it from Germany but how the hell is that possible?


Second was only a few days ago and very relevant to this thread. At Burrard and W 4th going the other way in slow traffic was a early 2000's light blue Peugeot 406 with BC Olympic plates on it.

I heard of some shady importing a while back in Quebec with R33 Skylines but this almost seems like it could be legit and possible and if so I WANT IN!!

It's too soon for the Mexico 10-year-old rule. Only thing I can guess is diplomats selling their cars before they leave the country.

from what I heard, diplomats / international students that brought the car in have to take the car out as well...

there is a slight loophole in importation laws... hence the exsistance of this 406.
