What vintages are you talking about? Later model cars have to be brought up to meet US emissions and Saftey specs, bumpers, side protection etc.

For the 360, US cars have the letter A in the VIN (ZFFYT53Axxxxxxxxx), Euro cars have the letter B (ZFFYT53Bxxxxxxxxx).

Thanks for all your information. I'm from Canada and currently living overseas and hope to one day pick up a Ferrari. I am leaning towards the 550/575. They are going cheap here..but one has to wonder about the condition of them.

When I do get one I would like to bring it back with me to Canada. Problem is with Transport Canada regulations. From what I understand US spec models can be brought into Canada with some minimal work, such as day time running lights, and some paper work formalities. Euro spec model can only be imported after they are 15 years old.

Here in Dubai there are the occasional US spec models around. Just want to make sure that when I do find one that its one that I can bring with me.
