Damn! I'm quite jealous. Was interested in importing very low mileage A31 Cefiro just to have a really mint base for modifying it, but if it was going to be in such mint condition like this, I would feel bad for touching it.

Congrats man, is there any rules on how long you have to have it before selling it?
Current Rides:
1996 R33 GTS25-T
1990 E39A VR4 EVO 0

Nothing better than the feeling of hitting boost.......................and still thinking you have control!!

Given the cost, there is no point importing something that isn't in this condition.  You'd still be paying the same amount of money.

Basic breakdown in NZ$

Car $1200
Agent fees in japan $1400
Shipping to chch /GST / customs $1600
Repairs $200
Compliance $450
Registration + plates $500

As you can see, getting a cheaper car really doesn't change the overall cost.  In my case the car itself was only 25% of the total bill.

No there are no special rules for this car that I'm aware of.  I think there is some rule saying you shouldn't buy/sell more than 6 cars a year but that has nothing to do with it being a fresh import or not.

I'll probably sell it right away as I want to do this again :D  Hopefully I can recover what it cost me but I'm not really sure of the market value.  Everything on trademe is either crap looking or modified (or both!) so I don't really have anything to compare it too.

Ya know. I would consider buying it if I weren't so broke.

I was looking on the Yahoo! Japan auctions and found those seat covers for a Cefiro believe it or not... Was tempted but I don't know if it was worth parting $80 over...

heh no interest so far apart from someone offering a swap of a supercharged crown - unfortunately I want the V8 version.  Anyway I'm not in a rush to sell it.  Looks good sitting in my garage :P

Dayum, I just noticed, does it have a 3rd gear for the automatic transmission? That's mad!
