[solved]WANTED! OEM parts needed for BC Inspection

Just relocated to Vancouver from US, drove my 2013 FRS here. Exported/Imported my vehicle thru CBP/CBSA no issue whatsoever.
However, the car failed BC vehicle inspection at a Canadian Tire shop.

Searched craigslist and Kijiji no luck finding relative OEM parts. Ebay seems to have a long delivery window for Canada. So here I am.

THINGS I NEED:
1. OEM catback -
Anyone has one lying around for sale?
Or if you plan to keep the stock catback, can I borrow it for a day or two?
2. OEM reverse light -
I removed reverse light to install bash bar. Anyone has the stock one?

That's it, other failed mods I found cheap solutions already. Should've just keep my US license and registration. Now it's too late, already exported.
Any suggestions would be welcome! Hello CANADA!

I have a 2014 OEM catback with 8 kilometers on it that you could have for free but the shipping costs would probably make it the most expensive exhaust you ever bought.

Thanks T. But cross country shipping would be my last resort.
Called couple junk yards, one quote me $500 for the two piece catback, seems a bit high. I'll keep searching around.

Hope some BC folks show up!

Well if you get totally stuck just yell. A quick look and estimate shows shipping to be between $80 and $220 depending on how fast. Beats hell out of paying $500.

Really appreciate your help T. I just hooked up with a local guy with parts I need for cheap. Problems solved.

Hey Im relocating to BC from Ontario this spring and was wondering if you could just share some information on what would fail the inspection? Basically my mods will be a header/over pipe and my turn signals relocated from the bumper to be integrated into the headlights (aftermarket headlights).
Although I can't help you with parts, my buddy recently moved out there with his frs and the shop was very lenient with his window tint, just stating that the shop took it off and what he did after that is on him (they didn't actually take it off). So many a possibility would be getting another inspection from a different shop in hopes they would record the paper as taking it off and what you do after that is none of their concern?

Tl:dr; will aftermarket headers and headlights (turn signal relocated) pass inspection to your knowledge?

Hi Fuki, I think these two mods won't cause a problem at most inspection places. I think your buddy's shop is pretty lenient on the inspection, so definitely check them out.
My Canadian Tire shop is a bit strict, they even put [TINTED FRONT WINDOWS (BOTH SIDE)] on my failed inspection form after I told them I will remove it right away. They also failed my catback system and smoked tail lights. They want as more jobs done as possible at their place. If failed, you have 30 days to re-inspect for another small fee. But it has to be the same technician.
So before actually going for inspection, find a shop that's pretty lenient. Find a shop who can discuss options with you before put it into BC report. Definitely avoid Canadian Tires, I think they are more strict on policies. Good luck!

Relocating across the country is different than relocating from the US, which also requires a bigger inspection because the car is being imported from the US into Canada at the same time.


His inspection wouldn't be a typical BC safety, it would've been the one required for federal importation.
