Used cars in Aus are very expensive. That is what I found anyways. I bought a Holden Barina think it was an '89 model and it cost $5000.00!!!! Gotta admit that it is a great car! Got me and mum from Melb to Syd and back in one piece!

rego is like the Vehicle Excise Duty - Road Tax.

the Mot in aussie is the Roadworthy Certificate - RWC. Not always needed in some states eg. WA.
