Seems like you would have to get it imported as the Type R models are JDM not USDM, or even CDM so they are never released stateside or Canada.

IDK how easy it would be to get imported, as Japan as less strict emissions laws than the US, so many times you can impoirt JDM cars, until they are antiques, and therefore exempt from US emissions standards.

I think that would need to be where you need to begin your search. See if you can even legally import the car w/o needing $1000s in work to get it to US emissions standards.

Sorry I dont have more for you.(Ive heard Used cars from Japan are typically very cheap cause they Put ALOT of pride in buying New cars.) but than I fear shipping to the States will be 2 arms, a leg, and your 1st born..
