Holy thread resurrection!

Was never sure about the title of this thread - do you have to be Canadian AND live in Canada to post? We have quite a few Americans who live in Canada (probably increased after the last election).

Setting aside the mis-use of "your", it would seem that only Canadian citizens are authorized to post here, regardless where they live, as long as they read the Canadian forum. "Canadian" and "Canadian resident" are not synonymous. "Americans" living in Canada are still US citizens unless they have officially switched citizenship, and vice-versa.

Since you used the term the way you did, can I assume you are not a Canadian who takes offense at US citizens calling themselves Americans? I was once testily informed that "We are Americans too!"

"If you are Canadian" or "If you're Canadian" is OK, as JohnWR points out. But, "If your Canadian" does not fit. Again, as JohnWR points out.

An easy test is just speak ... what we write. A common mistake that could be avoided, IMO. And, I'm not a freak about English and far from an English teacher, LOL.

Another common misuse is "THEN" and "THAN". The first one is 'time' related, and the second one is a 'comparison' of two events.

Not meaning to be critical of anyone, but proper use does make the reading easier, IMO. Others on the forum may even catch miscues that even I make, and that is also a good lesson too. :cheers:

Yes an unfortunate error in the title. My guess is that no Canadian would say they are "American" these days but they may agree to be called "North American" in reference to the continent. That is not an insult to anyone, but reflects the term "American" has been used in most contexts as referring to those who are from the USA.

Anyway back to the cars - visited mine today at the storage location and was a bit disappointed to see all the crap that was stored around my car (propane tanks, van seats, shovels, power-washer). I think I'll pay more next year to get into a better storage place.

Bought mine in July but needed some work to get it certified but managed to put 2000 kms in September and October. I am in the London area so hopefully spring comes quicker down here.

In this day and age the "your " and "you're " mistake can be the auto correct thingy too.
You are so right about the auto-correct. That is the single reason to read every post before you Submit the post. And don't forget to read it after it is posted, if you can. The edit function, if completed right away, won't even show that an edit has occurred when done immediately or very close to posting. :thumbs:

Anyone in Canada know where to get performance parts? Tired of paying the ridiculous shipping fees from DDM, Windrestrictor and RPM as well as getting the nasty customs bills in the mail.

If you are close to a border crossing, ship to a company that will hold your stuff until you can come pick it up. I use cbiusa.com in Niagara Falls, NY.

Agreed. Often times is free shipping to the US and ridiculous shipping to us here in Canada.

I had a couple of rather large powered subwoofers shipped to an accommodation address just across the border, and went and picked them up and cleared them through customs myself. Shipping cost about half what it would have direct to my Canadian address.

And never, ever use UPS for corss border shipping - they'll charge you a $30 customs fee on a $1 asher that would have sailed straight through in the mail.
