Smile U.K. 458 in Australia

Just wondering, if a rhd uk spec 458 was to be imported to Australia, what sort of price would a high spec spider or Italia would fetch?

$50k, just like all the others. I'll be first in line for this one.

I'll give you $51k for it, provided it has shields.

Why pay a cent for it, surely that's a straight trade for your 355.

Ohh hang on I forgot, yours has the faster gearbox so isn't worth as much

Better off going the other way, UK imports are hard to sell here. OZ cars in pommy are a good seller.

You can't import a 458 from the UK unless it's a personal import (ie: owning it for 12mths+ in the uk, returning back to Australia to live). Being an UK import expect to get $50-100k less than the average price here.

If I was in the U.K. I could definitely do a straight swap for a 458.

You will find it will owe you more than one you can buy here by the time you comply it and pay taxes. Add that to the fact here in aus people stay away from imports making it harder to sell even at the much reduced price imports sell for.. or even if they sell...

Bit optimistic to expect anything different based on:
- you haven't filled in your profile
- it was your first post and a pretty broad question
- you didn't respond for three days

Bit more detail... why are you asking the question? Any specifics that might help frame an answer...

In a nutshell you don't get something for nothing... the value of the answer is pretty fair really (although SPEEDCORE actually answered your question pretty well).

So.... what was your full question???

To be fair, I reckon Aeneas will fit pretty well here.
Especially on the GG.
