What are the disadvantages of buying a Canadian M3 that was imported into the US?

Like the title suggests, Im looking into buying a 2015 Austin yellow M3. Carfax states that it was imported from Canada and around 6000 miles.

Are there any cons for buying this car, such as a resell value issue?

your concern says it all
when you want to sell , you are going to face a lot of skeptics , so it will affect resale value
if keeping for several years , negotiate a great deal , and don't worry about it

i don't see why not if it's from the west coast.
if it's from the East, i'd be sure to check for rust underneath.

With all of the great deals to be had on used M3s here in the USA, I couldn't imagine buying one from Canada and then dealing with the issues listed above.
