Not to much as it drops a lot in the first 12 months and after the 2 to 3 year mark the drop slows down, also now the dollar is so strong people are buying more cars then they would normally and more people bidding on them keeps the price strong.

I want to replace mine with a newer model and the price in Japan is the same as to what I spent 12 months ago, it is more the dollar is stronger which makes it cheaper in Japan to buy nothing more.

It will vary from model to model and even day to day over their it amazes me some times as I look at sale prices every day which dictates a lot.

if you mean a drop in the price of V35's in australia, then no

i think the release of the V37 doesn't affect us for 2 reasons:

1) the cars are new and thus expensive - people that are going to spend that much rarely import cars but rather buy locally so that they get a warranty etc

2) people have to get SEVS compliance for the car before it can be rought it - if we look back to what that involves, they have to buy a car and wreck it for testing to prove its compliance. not many companies could afford to do that just yet

in short, the V35 won't be dropping for a few years until the V37 starts to filter through to our shores, and this is a while away in my opinion...

the only thing that worries me is dealers bringing in crap cars for cheap prices.

i got a mail yesterday from Prestige for a 2003 coupe for ~$28000

there's always going to be a base model going around with no features (eg no premium pack), high kms, etc..

Klm's flicked and had a good hit also helps to get a cheap one,

Dealers are trying to buy as low a klm as they can I am talking 160 single klm and a grade 5 A, I know on one dealer with 9 in stock with less then 15,000 klm's, most buyers these days on the V35 understand why a good car cost's that little extra and they understand why others are cheaper.

you can't bring in cars that have been in an accident under the SEVS system...

Yes but dealers in Japan can offer them for sale to personal importers and dodgy dealers....... it is when they turn up that the problems start and the dealer in Japan has forgotten about you already as he has his money.

coz i am thinking ... when G37 comes out in Jap, V35 in Japan would have a further price drop... hence affect the price in Aus... :P

i am sourcing one now ... but haven't decided if i should go buy locally or importing one myself.... i can see savings of around 4K if importing myself...

For $4k I wouldn't take the risk. I bought off a local dealer after test driving the car and checking it out properly. I picked it up the next day. Why would you want to send your money up front for a car you cant drive or inspect and wait for 12 to 16 weeks until it finally turns up and maybe gets licensed? It would have to be a much bigger difference than $4K for me to personally import one. But everyone to their own.

well... after further looking at the prices and negotiating with local sellers... they are pretty firm on their prices and the saving is now 6K..... would save around 7 to 8K if buying from dealer...

i got 9k off the advertised price when i got mine (from a dealer), so they are in no way firm on prices if you go in actually looking to buy.

of course, if you just go to enquire then they won't give at all because there's no point unless they know you are serious

$9K .... that's alot.... !!

the thing is .... most of the reasonably priced ones are from private sellers.... ...

dealer ones all prices around 40K ... more or less depends on whether if it's the premium or not...

after reviewing the recent aution price of the 350GT... it's quite possible to bring one in around $28k...

mmm... i only make around 3K a month... so to save up 4K it's gonna take me around 4 month...

i hate financial constrains.... :pirate:

Due to no one passing ADR 79 with the V35 to date nothing newer then 12/2005 can come in and lets believe what gets spammed out because if they were that cheap dealers would buy off him.

Was in the market recently for a coupe premium model and cant believe the price range. For a 03 model prices go from low thirtys and up to 50-60k. I cant see a justification for the ones in the higher price range considering that they can be picked up for similiar quality in high 30's and low 40's.

I'm thinking of selling my coupe end of this year early next.

(Need 4 door and lease for business)

I've owned it for 2 years It had done 6,000kms (now 40,000)

Grade 5A

Pretty much same condition as when I got it

20" wheels

Whiteline swaybars

Premium half leather

Manual 6 speed

HKS Supercharger kit

What would be a fair price?

Hardest part is finding a replacement now I've been spoilt.

It's just the wife and I now the kids have their own cars or are moving out

    • https://www.3si.org/threads/crusty-white-balls-on-spark-plugs.666041/ If you see little bits of aluminum on the plugs that's a detonation sign. They don't need to melt for there to be a problem. Coil harnesses disintegrating is normal. Welcome to owning these cars. A new one will last decades done right. Run a compression test and see if they're all ok. If so just keep running it.
    • I hear you! Been thinking about this a lot actually and I fully agree. Been wanting to get a second car that my partner can drive as well. But if I'm spending money on a car it has to be something that is fun to drive. And I already have a big old boosted boat so want something light and nimble. Pretty high on my list is the Honda S660. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honda_S660 Modern Honda so hopefully reliable, small, light-weight, high-ish revving 6 speed manual. Rear wheel drive. They are slow but apparently heaps of fun. And Jen loves the look of them. We see them every now and then around here. Main concern is that it's tiny and I might not fit.
    • You can be fully serviced Neo heads for $3000 online, so don’t think i will quite get $5000 for it. I would probably end up just keeping the head for a worst case scenario down the line, best case is i have a new head to upgrade if something happens to the current one in the future, as i imagine these will get harder and harder to find
    • Well, the key thing is still your budget (and time, but you've said you don't have much), and the fact you are happy with the existing 300kw for now. If I were you I'd buy the 5k engine, sell the head (probably for 5k these days as its a 25 NEO), swap your head onto it and send it.  Then, as funds allow, collect parts to rebuild your now spare bottom end properly.
    • Alot of people don’t let others test drive the car, so wasnt a hige alarm bell to me
