Hi guys,

I will import a car from overseas. Disregarding the costs of customs duty & tax, what other costs do I have to pay?

- Registration

- Insurance

- Anything else?

And how much do you think registration normally cost for an imported car? Just for reference, my car is a 2000 Mercedez S320 which costs about $65K in today's market price.

Thanks for any inputs in advance,

Ok I'm assuming you are aware that an S320 would be a personal import, you'd need to satisfy the normal import requirements, etc etc.

But once it's landed and compled most of the costs are no different to other cars.

In NSW you'd be looking at:

- Blue slip for an imported vehicle costs $116.80 incl GST

- Green slip (Compulsory Third Party Insurance) costs anywhere from $300-650. Exact cost from the CTP calculator here

- Registration fee is based on weight, for a car 1505kg to 2504kg it's $373. Plus whatever number plate fees you get.

- You would also pay stamp duty on the car, currently $1350 plus $5 for every $100 (rounded up) over $45000 (based on the greater of sale price or market value)

- and then you would have the option of taking out Third Party Property or Compulsory Insurance (check with insurers).

    • Interesting, i thought inconel had superior strength properties when subjected to extreme heat. My mates newphew says Monash got a million dollar EOS printer thats printing in Ti and Inconel and SS etc Apparently the kids are trying to figure out how to steal and or buy powder to make their own things after hours.  Apparently one of the cooler things theyve done this side of the world is making some really efficient w2A heat exchangers in 3d, apparently these things are almost twice as efficient as conventional ones. Cant remember the price per kilo for the metals but it aint cheap and its rather slow to make stuff but i thought cool nonetheless. The future of ICE? I think that will depend heavily on bio-fuels and or how EVs are going. California wont allow Chinese or Korean EVs one of the two cant remember - are not allowed to be parked in underground carparks -what a PITA
    • Sorry this happened @Zabuza. Not much we can do unfortunately, looks like the IP's used were in the states. The account has been banned but not deleted so we still have access to the PM's if we need them. We will be putting a PM restriction on all accounts until they've posted 15 times. Hopefully will help us weed out any more scammers as the SAU'ers will be prompt to report any dodgy posts. 
    • If you are buying new, just get a spool kit, but better yet ask your engine builder what they like to use. I go with CP because my engine builder told me to. I also went Nitto I beams and CA625 rod bolts because my engine builder told me to. Research shows that's a strong rod/piston combo, but that's a 4 cyl trying to make more power than you air aiming for so the HP/L equation is worse. Have a quick look on marketplace at least, you would be surprised what stuff comes up for dirt cheap.   
    • True. Whats some good pistons to go with? Was looking at Spool Imports
