For those of you have not heard my sad story read link below https://www.ferrarichat.com/forum/threads/finally-made-decision-to-pull-trigger-only-to-discover-the-woes-in-cross-border-shopping.574624/ WAIT!!!!! story does get better I promise So after accepting my fate I started to look at 650 spider in the US market as I knew that these were admissible in Canada. I find the car I like in Dallas, it had all the right features and colour, I inquire about extra McLaren insurance, if I purchased will it be honoured anywhere in north America? Answer to that question was NO only in the US. I would have to purchased extra insurance from a Canadian dealer fine no problem, I will just ship car to Vancouver and get it certified there. NOPE No Canadian dealership will sell you any extra insurance on any car deemed grey market vehicle, meaning any car not from Canadian market. NOW I WAS PISSED !!! I called the dealership in Vancouver and asked why not, they admitted to me that there is no difference between a Canadian car and and American car, they just are told not to do it. Well by now I simply had enough, I told the insurance guy my sad story on almost purchasing a 2018 570s only to be denied, he asked "why purchase in the US?" I answered that the selection in Canada dealership were slim to none. He then said "we don't list all our cars in stock perhaps you should talk to a sales representative", jokingly I said "can't hurt" fully expecting it would end badly. Long story short, 2 hours later I put a deposit on a brand new 570s spider, Curacao Blue, with 2 tone interior cream/black, with Orange callipers exactly like the original one I almost bought in San Fran Sales team was terrific, they listened and answered all my questions and bent over backwards to meet my budget. I knew they have been having issues with new tax's in BC, customers dropping orders, sales down by quite a bit, I knew I had a bargaining chip. I found the car I wanted, for almost the exact price I wanted and I could't be happier Well that is if it wasn't for the annoying feeling in my gut about when it comes to maintenance and warranty insurance. I mentioned to the salesperson about my fear and how much better it would be if there was a dealership in Calgary, where he replied without missing a beat "oh we are building a new Dealership there within the next year" Early this morning I was inquiring on importing a 650s spider, by noon I was done with McLaren altogether, by 3pm I place a deposit on a new 570 instead I was wrong, I admit it, you can't make this kind of stuff up. I will finalize deal and purchase car outright when I pick car up May 23rd. I intend to fly to Vancouver, inspect car, if all is well I am going to drive her home. Our driving season is short and I intended to make the most of it, plus driving through the Rockies visiting Lac Louise and Banff in a convertible McLaren is something everyone should experience once in their lifetime, as Ferris Bueller would say it's Choice Keep you all posted Sorry for being so long winded but I am a wee bit excited as you may all tell, plus I know other potential buyers love to read this kind of stuff, I should know I was one of them. . .
