@krnlane. I just went through the process myself. I am also in Canada and it was a pretty smooth process. I got my D90 from the Landrovers out of Netherlands. They got it from Spain. I am very happy with it. It isn't perfect, but I knew that going into it. I had loads of questions and got great answers and advice from a few sources. I did the importing myself and it wasn't hard. Just have to make sure you have all the documents. I am a member of OVLR and that group is a fantastic bunch of people who helped a ton.

I have been operating my rebuilt 110 for 6 months since its importation from the Netherlands. No blistering paint and it switches on overtime I turn the key. She has a few issues but the group who did the work has reimbursed me for repairs since its arrival. A few hiccups during importation but overall a good experience. If I did it again I would recommend doing all your upgrades and installing options once it is imported onto this side of the pond. Good vehicles can be had through reputable shops.

There are some lengthy discussions on this forum concerning Zombie motors and the guy who operates it. Also over on Pelican Parts there is quite a bit info on them as well. I believe he was banned from that site some time ago for his business dealings. I would also look up his criminal history.

Good luck and be careful.

Daddy,
Thanks for the info on Zombie. I was going to contact him about a D90. Think I'll pass

Thanks, have joined OVLR for a start. Did the group in the Netherlands take care of the shipping, and load on, or did you coordinate all that yourself?

They handled the shipping. Loaded it in the container and had all the original documents for me (ownership, title). I had to sort out getting it through customs. Paying duty, filling out "form one" , and registering it in Ontario. It was actually pretty straightforward but I did have advice from others. Feel free to PM me if you want any other information.
