    Yeah, they have the C5 HDi manual and the Xsara HDi. The only problem is that the Xsara HDi manual is the 90bhp version, while the auto version is 110bhp. What gives?

    They also have a 3 Year / 150000km warranty as opposed to the 3 year/ 60000km warranty we get over here.

    Hey guys,

    Being a fellow kiwi i can tell you why aussie gets a smaller range in nearly all ranges of cars. Australia Design Rules. The ADR governers what comes into australia so all new cars must follow these rules. So to get a new car into australia it must be crash tested, blah blah blah. In Nz it pretty much doesn't matter (thats why there is so many jap imports) So the aussie importer has to sell enough new cars to cover these expenses, In turn less models. Take a look at a nz car magazine and have alook at some of the weird and wonderful cars that are sold there.

    Cheers Nick

    Ahh ok. Thanks for that piece of information.. Damnit Australia needs to relax its car regulations.
