You'll want to use an importer, jdmconnection.ca and brave auto are two big ones, they're similar fees and have lots of info on their sites.

Otherwise there's velocity cars which is a dealership that specializes in imported vehicles

I used jdmconnection.ca. Brave Auto and Pacific Coast are reputable as well. All have similar pricing https://www.youtube.com/user/PacificCoastAuto/videos has pretty good videos as well

I used a combination of B-Pro for the brokerage, and Fraser Valley Imports for getting my car through compliance. Brian at B-Pro has a rolling stock he has access to and will try to find you what you like, and FVI picked up and delivered to my workplace once the inspection was done!

How do people in general pass the OOP inspection for headlights for the cars that don't have the North American equivalent? Does the inspector just turn a blind eye? I'd like to know before I import a car or If someone can PM me

I was interested in a car Velocity had but they refused to let me have it inspected by the local Toyota dealership. That alone says a lot about them.

I visited them once. I wasn't happy with how they treated me either. Would not suggest going.
