The Bill of Sale stipulates how much the car was sold for, who sold the car, who bought the car, what kind of car and the VIN.

Any lawyer can notarize a Bill of Sale, and each state on their DMV website has blank ones you can print up.

This is an example of a Bill of Sale:

Thanks shaginwagon13, may take you up on that if private seller is unable to produce from his dealer.

Note: the link you posted is an Affidavit for Return of Security Deposit, not Bill of Sale.

Sorry about that it was a long weekend.

Here is an example. Just type the state in Google like this:

2013 BMW 335is  [3.50]
Just finished importing a car into Canada from the U.S.. Went pretty smooth. The dealers are being dicks here though. I know I'm entitled to warranty work here but that's about it. Since the car I bought was only built in April of this year it still has some time left on the BMW Assist. The dealer wanted $3K to have that switched over to Canada. They said I need a new cluster and Canadian software. What a crock of shit. I think if I press the Assist button I'll be connected to the U.S. version of it and it will still work. It's amazing how you're treated like a piece of crap. The previous 20 years me and my family have spent on Bimmers means jack shit. Sigh.

That sounds like a load of bs...if I wasn't worried about my relationship with that dealer...and it sounds like they way they are treating you they don't seem to care about that relationship either, I would cause some serious shit there lol.

Looked into importing a bmw from the US to canada and know you don't have to pay for the cluster change etc. so seeing the dealer try that bs on you just brings back old angry feelings.

Dealers in the US can change BMW Assist registery information. However, the system only accepts ZIP code, not our Postal codes. I've switch it over on one of my cars, but have not tested it.

You do not need a cluster swap or re-program. These tactics are used to make importing less attractive and recoupe a few dollars from individuals that don't know any better.

How were you able to switch it over? Did you call them? Thanks.

Ahh ok thanks. I bought mine from a Mercedes dealership. I called BMW Assist just now and they said that if I pay the renewal fee they will activate it. Like $195.00.
