      What happens if it needs spare parts, repairs etc ?

      Would it have any warranty here ?

      First,
      I suggest anyone looking to bring their car over to contact Iron Lady imports or Iron Chef, as he helps lots of people bring their cars over.
      I am also an automotive compliance engineer in Melbourne, I comply 1 to 2 personal imports a week for various people. You DO NOT have to change the speedomter if you don't want to. It is not a requirement to have a km/hr speedo on a personal import. The 2 things that sometimes need to be fitted are Australian compliant Child Restraint Anchorages (CRA's) to ADR 34 requirements, although many newer cars from Europe have these now, the other thing can be seatbelts as its a requirement to have tags on the belts with an E mark (or equivalent). Most other things for personal imports will be there (Right Hand drive, laminated windscreen, lights dip to left, yellow indicators, red stop / tail lights).
      Some cars do come to me for compliance that are full of peoples belongings but remember that the Australian Quarantine inspection service wants to check that everything is clean so when they unpack your car it might not all be repacked as carefully!

      Very good advice about the air conditioning because if you go to sell the car, nobody will want to buy it if it doesn't have air con. Parts for Nissans and other main stream manufacturers aren't a big deal as Australia imports second hand cars from Japan and so these places and even main dealers can get parts generally with less issue than BMW, Audi, VW, Mercedes, etc, who often quote many weeks to get parts ex-Europe.

      Regards, Blake A.
