      If you have a flash car I guess it might be viable. Look at this site:

      http://www.anglopacific.co.uk/vehicles/index.htm

      he 'customs guides, link on the left hand side is what you want.

      Don't forget to check out the costs you will incur at this end aswell.

      Import Duty
      GST
      Cleaning Costs
      Safety Checks
      Conversion costs - speedo being one example.

      It can work out quite expensive.

      and of course... does your car have air conditioning ?
      If not, you will almost certainly have to get it installed. I couldn't live without air con in a car, much more important than air con in the house.

      Is your car capable of having it installed in this country ? and at what cost ?


      Heres another possible useful link:

      That could, be VERY useful.

      I did a quick calc on one example used car and it calculated a total of 3,500 in the various costs, 1,500 of that related to shipping costs, with the other 2,000 being costs incurred on the Australian side. This being based on a car valued at 5,000.

      thanks

      i understand about the space and packing in the car issue, but it is a major issue to get a fairly modern car to comply with australian design rules.this is our equivalent of british standard kite mark.if it is something you want to go ahead with i used to work in this field and will give you advice. best regards simon

      Simon - I wonder if you can help us on this topic. I've done all the above but it's really hard to work out as they don't have Primeras! unfortunately ours is nearly 1 year old so we'll be totally stuffed selling it but it still might be worth it versus the cost. Would we have to change anything [as this would add to price and tip the balance!] the speedo shows km [although miles are bigger] - I can't think what else...it's diesel?
      cheers, Maggi
