The inspection shouldn't be much of a problem....just make sure its got a cat with that exhaust. The HIDs might not slide.

Disregard my previous comment....Sorry, missed the UTEC was there... thanks RS420. I think it was the fuzzy eyes last night.

My opinion is as long as the car's chassis is rust free, it's same anywhere in Canada.
I don't know much about tuning or mods so I can't say much about that.
Look for any corrosion on subframe joints and other moving components, also the chassis.
I lived in Ontario for few years and last time I was looking for a used car there, most were rusted underbody. Apparently even in Kelowna it snows much more than in Vancouver. You know what subiests do when it snows!

It says the ecu has been tuned with utec. It sounds like the guy knows what he is talking about but with the mods on there it would be wise to get a pre-purchase inspection with either a leak down test/compression test/cylinder balance test to make sure there are no under lying issues. It would have had a full inspection to import it to bc but it sounds like that was 3+ years ago?
Nice looking car.
Good luck
