Welcome from NZ Tav. CongratZ on the vert. Nice low mileage, was that a Auzzie new, or a pre-loved import?

An Aussie Zed??? That's a first for me!!! I thought they're all built only either
at Japan or Tennessee!

Hi j.arnaldo, Bronzee meant was it a personal import or an Australian delivered car. Personal/grey imports are huge in New Zealand.

Thanks, B.T.! At Puerto Rico we can only get them via U.S., so we end up paying the freight from Japan to the U.S., and THEN from the U.S. to P.R. That's what makes 'em so expensive...OF COURSE, our politicians add to the abuse with extremely high levies! That forces guys like me to search for used (i.e. depreciated) ones. I hit the mother lode with my 'O4 Zed!!!

Oh my, they certainly are. I'd say probably more of the pre-loved ones here now, than the ones like mine that I've had since new. Pretty much flooring the price now because of it. You can pick up a rough, import one now for 20k NZ$, that's about 13k US$. Even one that is less than 6 months old is going for 48kNZ$, they are about 76kNZ$ new.

Hope you are enjoying your Zed Tav.

I love it! I am just doing my research before starting some mods. HID's and small antenna are first on the list. Head unit upgrade second...

Nice one. I'm sure that will be the start of the hole in the bottom of your pocket, commonly called a Zed. Lol.
