Importing from the US is a huge pain. I only did it because I literally couldn't find a '96-98 5spd 9k Aero anywhere in Canada several years ago. I'd be very hesitant to do it again. Things to keep in mind:
You will pay duty (I think it's 6%).
Unless it's close enough to pick up, you'll pay between $1000-2000 to get it to you.
You will still pay the same tax that you will pay if you buy locally.
You may have to get a recall clearance letter, a out-of-country inspection, and an out-of-province inspection; maybe if it's new you don't have to do those things.
