    First one
    Name: Crompton’s Auto Care
    Address: 3131 276 Street, Aldergrove BC Canada V4W 3L4
    Phone: (604) 856-4131

    BS Reason: JDM cars are just hard to work on, inspection would be to complex.

    (I told them i had a RHD Honda Accord, Not sure how much more complex it would be for inspections then any other car. That excuse was pretty thin. )

    Seriously, never take a car for inspection at Canadian Tire, JDM or otherwise.

    I have been lazy but one of these days I'm going to just call every shop near me on the inspection list and ask them.

    I take my USDM Cars to Kaltire for inspeciton - but they refused to do a JDM one, stating too much work to do.
