comment Buying a used car in Ontario - safety certificate
You're probably better asking this locally in Ontario, as it's a very location-specific question. In the UK, we have a specific exception to allow cars to be driven to the annual safety check even if the previous one has expired, but we have a recent rule that says all cars must be insured at all times, unless officially declared as "off the road" (previously you could simply keep a car off the road for a short time without declaring it as such, and not insure it). I suspect you have similar peculiarities!

comment 2010 Audi A4 Scratch - “blending”
I agree with Paul - ALL paints change colour over time, as the sunlight affects the pigments, and any decent paint shop will account for this when mixing the paint. A good independent will probably do a better job than a main dealer too - they have a reputation to protect...
