As I'm sure most die hard M3 owners know, there is a history of BMW Germany extending the odd special treat to Canadians. Remember the handful of E36 Eurospec M3s that we got? I could be wrong, but I don't beleive any were shipped to the U.S.
Also the massive population discrepancy...
330 or whatever U.S dealers, sharing 3000-5000 cars. That's one per month if they are lucky.
Now imagine if Canada gets even a 1000. 32 dealers nationwide; that's 33 per year per dealer - almost 3 per month.
Might be a good time to be Canadian. I'm hoping anyway.
