Personal import to western australia

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

Looking at moving from nz to western Australia and bringing my s14 200sx with me. I'm pretty sure nz got the same spec 200sx but without the ADR tags. So, I'll need to fit a high flow cat? Of do I wait until it arrives in strata for this? What's the go with minor panel damage? She's had a bit of a hard life nothing structual just dented guards.do I need to get it panel beaten or would it be OK? I'm assuming a rear fibreglass bumper and missing front bumper reinforcement would be a problem but I'll get that sorted. Last things are I have a hks ssqv bov that vents externally which I believe is illegal in oz? I can get an adaptor and reroute it into the air intake if neccesary. And I have a hole in the battery tray- battery's in the boot- for the intercooler piping. I plan on welding in a section of steel with a pressed factory hole I cut off a wreck so it looks factory. 

I appreciate any input cheers andrew

Have you got a quote for shipping or anything yet? Sending anything across the ditch happens to be extremely over priced, especially cars.

Yea I was gonna get a shipping container and pack some other shit around it. I realise it would likely be cheaper to sell it and buy a similar car in oz but it used to be my little brothers car he passed away a few years ago so it has the emotional attachment happening.

I suggest you talk to an import broker before you spend any money fixing things.  Personal imports fall under different and more open rules than normal. Try Geoff at Prestige Motorsport or Kristian at Iron Chef Imports
