Hi there Jono,

When buying an import there are a couple of documents that you should reference to your car. These include, the auction sheet, de-registration and any details you can dig up on registration in Australia. Being a new import there probably isn't any information from a registration in Australia. 

This car appears to show a de-reg certificate for the model, however I couldn't spot the cars VIN anywhere in the advertisement. You will need to match the VIN on the certificate, vs the VIN on the blue tag in the back left of the engine bay.

^This will be your friend in this instance.

Search for "Advice on buying R34 GT" or some other equivalent topic.

 

As for the car itself, it does look very clean and would suggest that the kms are correct. But i'm not expert and you will need to do your homework to be sure of what you might be buying. Best of luck.

Okay, after this, i'm going to leave you to search. Google and the Search bar here will help you out.

In particular you should read through this forum:

Normally, they go to auction in Japan are purchased and shipped over. In the auction process they are graded (please google Japanese Car Auction Process). 

One someone purchases the car it is shipped over from Japan and complied to local laws here in Australia. 

Then you can buy them and register them in your state. Good luck!
