3 cars incl. 2001 Mazda RX-7

My car arrived on Monday, I'm so thrilled to have it! The condition is fantastic, you were right to talk me out of the white one, I can see how much better this car is so thanks. AS you know I've been writing a blog about the whole process, for your info the car in the end came in about $200 under the budget you originally gave me, so kudos. I guess it's time I start looking for a car for my Dad now as well :-)

Price Estimates

Any costs listed above are estimates only. Calculations are based on average importing costs and current rates. Final costs are likely to vary slightly from these prices depending on variations in exchange rates and other factors beyond our control, however these rarely are different by a significant amount. Please check with your local registration authority to confirm registration costs and stamp duty.

Exchange Rates

The current exchange rate being used is 80.4 yen however banks never trade at the listed wholesale rate. Typically banks will offer around 1.5 yen less so the rate we use for calculations today will be 78.9 yen, ensuring a realistic price estimate.
