Re: Practical advise about NZ car import complaince

Interesting stories, escapedtonz. There's no way I would want to drive a vehicle that had been disassembled by a compliance workshop and sloppily put back together, so I don't blame your friend for...

Re: Practical advise about NZ car import complaince

At this point, I think I've scrapped the idea of trying to bring any used car to NZ. This only made marginal sense to begin with from the perspective of avoiding the GST by owning the car for a year,...

Re: Practical advise about NZ car import complaince

Thanks for your reply.



Yes, exactly. I know I can't bring a non-specialty LHD to NZ, which why I was looking at cars from the UK. Ironically, and annoyingly, where we live in Germany, it...

Re: Practical advise about NZ car import complaince

Now that I have five posts I can post the photos of the car I was considering. This is the kind of thing I'm trying to determine will get me referred in the compliance process. This car has less than...

Re: Practical advise about NZ car import complaince

You joke, but in all seriousness, have a look under a car that's been sitting outside for more than a month or two. You'll find something brown under there. It's all made from steel and it rusts when...

Re: Practical advise about NZ car import complaince

Right, thanks, but I also understand that people import UK cars all the time, and I challenge anyone to find a car in the UK that's done more than 1,000 miles and doesn't have at least a little rust...

Re: Practical advise about NZ car import complaince

Really, my question is, if someone on here has recently done an import from the UK personally, I would love to hear how old the car you imported was, how the import process went, and maybe even see a...

Re: Practical advise about NZ car import complaince

My question is more about the process. I've moved past bringing my Saab. It's not that I must drive a Saab, it's just that I'm agitated that it's a great old motor, over-engineered on safety, and has...

Re: Practical advise about NZ car import complaince

Not bothering with the Saab, it's too far gone on rust based on what I've read. Had a look for another Saab in the UK but couldn't find one that didn't have some rust on the underside somewhere....

Angry Practical advise about NZ car import complaince

Hello all, forgive me if this story has a tinge (or substantial amount) of whinging, as I'm good and annoyed with this entire matter, and nothings even really happened yet. I'm going to...
