Recommendation for JDM dealers Vancouver

My first post!

I'm in the market for a JDM manual Legacy GT-B. My preference is for one already here that I can test drive.

I've been to JDM Import on Hastings Street and they were pleasant, no pressure but price seems high though I've not tried to negotiate.

Read the extensive discussion about Velocity Cars from a few years ago. They didn't seem to come out too well from that.

Just contacted B-Pro but I think the cars are still in Japan so no chance of test drive prior to purchase. That said, a thorough 3rd party inspection should uncover a lot of the issues mentioned in that thread.

Been scanning craigslist for a few months but nothing private that matches other than one in Kelowna.

Whatever I buy I'll get it 3rd party inspected. Friend recommended Kaltire for general inspection. Had BCAA do an inspection of Land Cruiser a few years ago and they forgot to retighten the lug nuts on all 4 wheels...

Any recommendations on where to buy and any specialists that might do an inspection would be much appreciated.
