    Default Any takers on a UK 205 Dimma in SEQ - not Reg

    That's more so a case of who not what you know. In other words in Queensland without the rigmarole of other states, it's not hard at all just depends on how much you want it on the road and how dodgy you are. Given the 205 is a galvanised car it shouldn't have any issues with rot as an import either. My import 205 of a past life only ever rotted where there were previous repairs done.

    I tend to agree with John, it does not look genuine.
    Both John and I have genuine Dimma's and there are definately differences apparent in those pics.
    Compliance in WA cost me about $3000 for my Cossie so expect about the same IF there have been others imported with EXACTLY the same specs.
    Johns is very different and mine was built here so expect problems.
    But hey whatever floats your boat !!
    I dont like the colour but thats a personal thing, and I agree about the wheels
    Spelling worries me too
    Cheers

    reply was

    "" hi mate im not sure on all that info mate and the year was a ts a 1986 rego no in uk was A14SBR will you be able to get the info you need from that? ""

    Does that help anyone?
    Cheers

    Ahhh whoops. I thought the seller's name was Keith too. That was you asking if that helps anyone. I'm on the level now!
    Sorry Keith!

    Anyway I know the fellow who bought this. Picked it up for $2800 I believe, from Qld. Which is good.
    Think he intends to paint it white at some stage.

    Im not sure he did his homework....so it's a fake Dimma kit is it?

    Anyway looks neat in the flesh.

    Now you make sense !!
    The experts on here seem to agree that its a fake or a poor copy to be more precise.
    There seem to have been lots of "moulds taken off the original Dimma " stuff around in the UK so who knows.
    I now have the original Dimma plates for both of mine so I feel happier than I did with the original 1.6 8V.
    I had my doubts but the original builder here was genuine and has produced the original paperwork.
    Without that sort of info it just isnt kosha.
    But then, who cares if he likes it
    Cheers

    Its definately one of the fake ones...and they were pretty shoddily put together too. Not the same material either as used in the real Dimmas ;]
