2001 Mazda RX-7 Type R Bathurst R

The car is going great, the quickest car next to this i have driven is a VS commodore which doesn't even compare lol. I had a compression test done and came back perfect, pretty good for a rotor that's done 80+k's i would think. Overall I'm wrapped with the car, couldn't of asked for any better.

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 79.2 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 77.7 yen, ensuring a realistic price estimate.
