    anyone have an mi16 (1989/90) they want to sell early next year?

    doesnt look like i am going to get the 280,000 km mi16 anymore, doesn't really look like a good investment... if anyone has a 1989 mi16, in anywhere really, i can really collect it from anywhere tas/vic/nsw, with leather, less than 200,000 kms and around 8 or 9 grand let me know via email or this post

    Hey... ever thought about importing one? Not a huge number over here in NZ, but because of the decade-long flood of used Japanese imports, Euro stuff is VERY cheap. For example, I bought my Citroen BX16v (Mi16 motor) for $NZ2000.... 1989, 136,000miles, vg condition, very well cared for. No reason why an Mi16 shouldn't turn up for $3-4000 if you keep your eyes open. I think some of them came in used from Japan too. If you want to check out prices here, go to...
    www.trade-exchange.co.nz and search by make.

    Other cheap Euro stuff includes Saabs and Volvos. Far fewer of these makes were sold here new compared to Oz, so most ex-Japan.
    cheers

    For example:

    PEUGEOT 309GTI '87, wof/regn, 15" mags Low Profile tyres, spoiler, CD stereo, 1900cc, 5 spd, blk, 121,000km $3000 ono, (021)384-427 or ah (09)418-3974

    Remember... exchange rate would make this more like $AUS 2500. How does that compare to Oz prices? Anyone know what it costs to ship a car?

    NZ cars seem pretty cheap, anyone got an idea on compliance (ie. what doesnt fit australian standards?) because my old man has some contacts in the import business, so it could be a viable option.

    Be carefull if considering an Mi16 89/90 model with 14" wheels. It is now almost impossible to buy V rated 195/60 x 14 tyres. Michelin, Pirreli and Yokohama have all stopped producing in this tyre. I recently had to buy 15" wheels in order to buy legal tyres.

    I'd consider selling mine (138K private import, leather etc.), but what else could you replace it with for the money?

    on the topic of V-rated 14" tyres -- there are some Goodyear Eagle F1s that fit those specs (195/60 VR14). I had to buy a set for my old Prelude, which had the original 14" wheels, and a factory speed rating of V.

    they aren't a bad tyre, either... especially nice in the wet. ntrx put me onto them after discussing on the old Autospeed boards.

    are transport commission people really going to get fussed about anything other than whether they are bald or not? aren't non V-rated tyres are pretty similar compound and design, just not able to withstand really high speeds? pretty stupid thing to base the law on really (210km/h), because aren't our road laws supposed to stop us from doing that in the first place??!?!?!

    Yeah crazy,

    in order to compliance my old mans CX when it was imported we had to fit tires capable of at least 240km/h. They had to be capable of the cars top speed.

    What a load of crap, now it's registered we can put anything we like on it. Gee's it's not like we drive at those speeds everyday . More like once a week really :p

    could be a good idea to stick one of the transport commission blokes that the car won't do 220km/h on the nearest highway "look mate it just stops at like 215, we could sit at this for 10 minutes"

    I think is makes perfect sence. Sure you are not "allowed" to drive at 220km/h, but what happens when you loose your brakes on that 45deg/30kms stretch of road on the way to your local supermarket... THAT'S when you need the V rating.

    Nick,

    I drove by *and then stopped* at a car yard in North Hobart today, much to my suprise there was a nice silver 89 Mi16 sitting there with the price of $11990 on it!

    Some details:

    it's got 149,000kms on it, lux pack *leather etc* it's a car thats been in Victoria, but it all seems in OK order, not the BEST example of a series 1 Mi16 but still not a bad little bus!

    Cheers
