    If you really want to rub it in, tell us that you have hired a Zed, you've got a ferry ticket to Straddy and you're going to cruise along 40km beach with a case of Crownies.
    Meanwhile I'll continue to enjoy -3degsC and freezing fog ;)

    Looking at some Aussie sites, I am not surprised at the prices, as there don't seem to be many Zeds down under.

    The UK, on the other hand, has quite a few but obviously RHD, which means supply and demand will only be......in the UK.

    Over here, on the main land, prices are close to Aussie prices due to people wanting to buy a LHD car that was registered in the country that they live in and not an import. Not that there is any thing wrong with an import, I have done it before with a Merc from Germany, better spec for the price but it was not easy to sell when I got to that point.

    Example....
