    Long time people! Hope everyone is well.

    I used to live in Australia and talking to my dad, who still lives there, was told z's go for good money out there, I looked and my 2003 3.0i would sell for 34000 aus dollars! That's 21000 pounds! Might look into shipping it and buying a M coupe!

    Shipping costs are about 3k but still well worth it!

    I was and am still truly stunned!

    Basically look at shipping cars to.oz, my whole family are car traders and my dad was so I haven't looked into getting third parties to sell it etc and I do have a residential visa so there may be more hoops to jump through if you don't have that. Deffo worth a look though!

    Hmm
    Sounds good
    We drove from Brisbane to Cape Tribulation on our last visit but the section north of Cairns was by far the best.
    It reminded me of the French/Italian Coniche
    Only problem was the tin roof on the Mitsubishi V6 :coolsteer)
