    Freight say about $2000 and I would guess that as it's a "Special" the duty would or should be almost non-existent.
    When you see the present exchange rate, it's not real bad buying for anyone who was keen enough. Should make a bloody wild kind of track day car


    Live mid-market rates as of 2003.11.14 06:41:30 GMT.

    3,500.00 GBP United Kingdom Pounds = 8,194.50 AUD Australia Dollars

    1 GBP = 2.34129 AUD 1 AUD = 0.427116 GBP

    I doubt that anyone could buy a 205 & do all that work to it for anywhere near than figure. The more you look at it the better buy it appears to be.
    Best I stop looking at it before I end up in as much strife as a certain G/B

    the container would cost about 2k~3k + insurance.

    wouldnt there be an import duty considering you havent "lived" with that car for 6 months or some other silly rule that says it must have been your car before you can avoid the duty?

    on the side note:
    I think Darren would be taking notes. Now at least he would know what else needs to be done to his beast. Probably a lot less glamorous than the donk he just had built

    You'd better get in quick. Grey imports finish December 31.

    That's a real bargain. The cage and LSD are $4K alone. Then the 4.8 diff? Rose jointing? Seam Welding?

    Default yes please

    Oh yum

    I think getting it here would be 1% as challenging as convincing my wife that I need a third Pug in the garage

    It sounds like an awesome machine

    Steve, mate, you should have been married long enough now to know how it works; treat the matter the same way as the wives treat us when they buy a new dress; get it home first and see how she likes it.....by then it's too late to send it back!!

    Probably not hard to believe as the car manufacturers have been trying to get a few Politicians in their pockets for a few years now so they could ban them. :>

    Where it could get a bit interesting is that if you bought a car from say Japan, US or UK and this law change came in before it landed in Australia, would some boofhead in the Customs of somewhere bring the new law out & refuse to let the car land?
    Might sound weird, but I knew a uy a few years ago who got caught with an expensive Merc like that; legal when it left UK and illegal by the time it got here. Cost him a packet but fortunately, he had packets so no real big deal, but worrying all the same.
