just a crap r32 but i like it. i have to have it here for 2 years i think (still looking at the regs) if im lucky it only has to be in NZ for 2 years from time of import.

 but yea ill earn some cash and see what i can afford after working there a lil while. if i can find i decent r32/33 gtst manual over there for the right price ill get that. or i might even get myself an silvia. and slap an RB in it lol.

but the great thing about moving therre is the fact my dad earns around 47 an hour (damn him :splat: ) and he said he would help me do up a car. hes also a mechanic so yea lol. i should have a nice car pretty fast, he just said that i had to buy the car myself and then he would help :p

i dont know what ill get over there. all i know is its gotta be manual, RWD, jap and most likely from the nissan family (skyline is holding the top spot tho :P)
and after my dad gets his hands on it (he has a big block holden one tonner, 33 ford roadster that does -10s and many other big power cars) i should hopefully have 250+ rwkw's :cool:

fellow kiwi >.> im from aussie i was just raised here lol
yep will tell you how i go but it should be all good as i have family over there. lol it looks like ive started an exodus here, my mate wants me to hook him up with a place to crash after i get set up and it seems like everyone wants to move there lol must be the nuclear power and poisonous animals with the appeal.

as for importing your car there i hear the actual importing isnt all that hard, its when you try to get it all legal the fun will begin. i have been told that they are really anal over the cars

yer im kinda aware of the mod limts in some states.. ie i think in WA or somewher ur not allowed to have atmo venting Bov or screamers.. weird..
Title: Moving to WA
Post by: chubz on February 23, 2006, 09:18:11 AM
lol just get a dual vent bov and if they pull you up on it tell them that its setup for plumb back and when you take it on the track its vent to atmo. lol they probably wouldnt know that it can be set to both outlets :p

yea i been there before in 45degree heat lol

yea but on the bright side the big gas guzzlers (ford/ holden) are pretty cheap lol

i was in oz for a month or so end of last year... loved it over there... awesome place, jobs were plentiful (brisbane). BUT- if your wanting japanese cars...make sure you take a big fat wallet... stock standard r32, resonable cond, GTS-T, looking round 12k... RS suby legacy, round 10k... prices are crazy on jap cars... and theyre forever being pulled over and checked for any modifications
