    Saw three Alpine GTA V6 Turbos at my place only yesterday. Yes, you are right, they are not very common in Australia but the numbers are growing. Prices for RHD GTAs from the UK are quite low I think, but unfortunately although they are mostly fibreglass, rust can still be a problem in the remaining steel parts. Servicing of cars it seems, even of GTAs, is very hit and miss in the UK.

    Alpine Affaire in Melbourne can take a lot of the credit for there being as many Alpines as there are in this country.

    There are approx. 8 GTA Turbos, 4 GTA Atmos, 1 LeMans, and 1 A610 in the country, with most cars in either Melbourne or Brisbane. There are also a fair number of A310s and A110s as well, most of these being in Melbourne.
