    Try contacting MOTOR magazine, in their (current) November 2012 issue, they reckon a V6 Clio can be imported, landed, complianced and registered for circa $20K......

    Alternately, probably try with the usual suspect sites:

    http://www.infrastructure.gov.au/vehicles/imports/quiz/

    As for importing it as a circuit/rally car, they tend to look more favourably on a NC or NR licence, and like to see a history of competing in relevant events. So if they see a basic licence, with only a short club membership history the chances are slim.

    What is so spec about a Dimma Clio though? Or is it the one with the Cosworth 4WD underpinnings? Otherwise, if it is just a 1990's esque shellsuit/happy pants era body kit over Clio 16V body/mechanicals, what is the attraction? If you are going to the trouble of importing something for track only use, you'd be better off going for something unique like a 205T16 or Clio V6 type vehicle for something to enjoy in a Targa tour/rally.

    Apparently they were very bad for hiding rust. There was a thread about this on Dimma register awhile ago. One guy showed piccies of the kit off the car and..... well.....there was no car LOL

    Please excuse me for being so dim !!!!!

    Are you not able to build a "Dimma" car here in Australia ??? If you bought a kit from the UK (or wherever) and had the car built here. There are a number of cars legally on the road with added kits, are there not??? We have a number of Jap cars with body kits and wheels here in the West.

    Until this post, it was not clear that originality was a motivation very high on the priority list at all :-)
