I wonder how you'd prove that a 2001 Type R only had apparently 1500 copies in that model year. Honda/Acura never officially stated it but it does float around a lot. Some 97 Rs should qualify now too.

You would need an official letter from Honda/Acura Canada or North America to certify that the Type Rs were limited to only 1500 production models.

Porsche North America is a good manufacturer who does this for their customers.

As for BMW...

Speaking of special plates, does anyone have "modified" plates? If so, how do the rates compare with regular insurance and how modified does the car have to be?

Modified plates? You mean like Vanity plates? If so, doesn't matter if your car is gutted or bone stock

1997 acura integra type Rs would qualify this year as there were around 320 were produced. 1998 Acura ITRs would qualify next year as about 1005 were produced for that year

ICBC | Modified vehicles

My mistake, it's not really modified plates, but having a vehicle "registered as modified".

Must be this 92 Intergra GSR was posted for sale here on RS in 2009 and it has collector plates

Thanks, Snoop Monkey Monk. That's the one I'm talking about. Nice car and collectible for sure.

It doesn't matter how many are left.. what matters are how they look in the photos.

Oh if you get into a claiming related situation.. do remember in addition to the Collector status, you still neeed an "Agreed Value" policy from ICBC for maximum coverage.

In BMW's defence there aren't that many cars that would qualify recently.. other than S54 Z3 shoes, Z8. The 90s Canadian spec M3 are local runs and globally there are more than 1500. BMW doesn't churn out special editions like Porsche does.

If they don't like to show, just get any back issues of Bimmer's buying guides.. they often do list the production numbers for specific models.

I was looking to see if at any point in time I could qualify for the E36 M3 sedan since they were so limited in production numbers. There were no viable guides or resources available (when I looked any way) so I sent an e-mail to BMW. They basically told me to scram.

Otherwise, like everybody else, you have to wait until the vehicle is 30+ years old.

For BMWs I suggest taking out a subscription of Bimmer If you are not in a hurry, do write to them as they are quite good at replying. I think M3 Sedans do exist in quite large number as they are popular in Asia... I am not sure they would make the 1500 mark.

There is a member of RS that has an older M5 on collector plates I believe. Can't remember the specific details other than a special year or model that had less than 1500 models world wide.

only 2000 or so E28 M5 were made over 3 years globally in the 80s.. those are the rarest of all M5..

eg e39 M5 20k were made.

It was definately an E39 M5. I've seen the car and collector plates.
I'll bug him about it later when I see him online.

I recall him saying there was less than 1500 cars world wide.

The only problem with that claim is e39 started production in 1998.. Even within the 15 year time frame, it won't be eligible until 2013.. which is next year.

We may have a problem here.
Hmmm.

Got it. It was an E34 M5.
