how is it that you guys are avoiding this and going to Canadian tire for the inspection and not modding the cars at BMW?
Because you don't have to!

I got my Canadian Tire inspection completed last night because

a. the car has DRLs which are programmable through the car's computer
b. the car has km/hr on the speedometer

BMW Canada has managed to insert a FUD statement onto RIV's website.

Trust me -- i imported my car on Friday and as of last night, it is RIV certified. Next step is emissions and smog and then Ontario registration.
