Buying a Japanese imported car in NZ
« on: November 28, 2011, 04:24:43 am »
A SA friend of mine here in Tauranga started a venture lately where he imports Japanese cars directly into NZ. He is even one of a few people in the world apparently where you can check out your car in Japan and then bid on it and get it shipped into NZ in one easy deal. He just showed me this morning how his online bid system works at Japanese auctions and in a few easy steps you can get the car that you like for a lot less than the other dealers in NZ can supply. He can also deliver anywhere in NZ if the needs be.

If anybody is interested I can put his webpage on this post and you can check it out or if you want to deal with him directly I can get his info to you, no problem.

Nolan - I don't get any commission for this or if you don't like me to post this you can delete this whole thread. I just thought this is so cool, you can view online from wherever you are, find the car of your dreams in Japan, bid on it and get it shipped to NZ in a few easy steps. The savings that this guy is talking about is serious business. I am certain that a few dealers in NZ are seriously going to be "P"ed off by this....  :2funny:

Cheers,
SAKB
