Importers

Postby Sonic on Thu Sep 08, 2005 11:08 pm

Can anyone please add any importers that have websites that I could contact to see about getting a VI through please.

So far I have:
www.j-spec.com.au
www.kamikazemotors.com
www.yahoomotorsport.com (although dont think he is dealing with anthing < 15yrs)
www.prestigemotorsport.com.au
www.fourbrotherimports.com.au

So far J-spec is winning in getting my business by miles as they seem to have the most for me to 'look' at on a regular basis and will do all the compliancing etc for me.

Cheers

Hey Jamie...

a bit off topic but thought id mention it.. i would say that there has to be something dodgy about it but maybe give the number a call and see what his story is cos $24,000 for an E7 is cheap cheap cheap...

if the link doesnt work, all i did was a search for Lancer GSR on carpoint.

let us know what he says if you can be bothered ringing!

cheers

Don't worry about ringing the number because it's wrong. According to the nice lady that I spoke to, they put the wrong phone number in the ad :(

If it's legit, then it's a bargain for sure!!!

44k is too much - can get them for 34k no problems, and the 7 is a continuing ebay scam, the girl that is selling it is still trying to get them busted - it is for sale but at ~40k. You know, the car is in Australia - Im in Italy - pay me some money etc.....


Jaime

PS - I think it will be a J-spec car.......too many to choose from. 2 maks at the moment for 34-35k.

That includes compliance freight etc.......The only thing on top is Tyres and rego. Rego I would have to pay if I buy one interstate anyway. Tyres are not a problem.

You pay a lot just because its australian delivered. I was told insurance was more for an import - but two insurance companies gave me the same quote for import/aussie delivered on an evo 6.

You need to get on their mailing list.....or alternately go to the mailing list page....that will give you an idea of prices. Compliance for a VI or TME is about $4500 - $5000
