    Importing NSX-R?

    hi guys, I might be moving to Australia in the next couple of months. I have a 1994 NSX-R that i would like to bring along into Australia if possible. Just wondering what sort of option do I have to bring the car in and get it register in Aus? I bought the car couple months ago from Japan and its in Hong kong right now but i havent get it register and roadworthy in Hong kong due to hefty tax. Is there any company can do that for me? Thanks in advance guys!

    did a little research i guess the personal import way isnt going to work for me as i didnt get it registered in hk. what about SEVS or RAWS? i understand they sell NSX in Aus but i guess honda dealers never sell any NSX-R?

    I think you'll have trouble.

    The rules (AFAIK) are that you have to prove ownership and usage in the country you owned it in for 2 years before personal import rules allow it into Australia.

    Yeah there is so much problem's trying to import cars into Australia overall... due to the amount of rules they have only way is to import it as a personal property which like Cambo mention you have to show the personal usage or the car...

    Welcome to Prime red_jdm!
    The general feeling is that it would be difficult and only one Type R was registered in Australia and that got in years ago under a loophole which was then closed.

    Having said that it would be great to see you get the car into Australia and as you have owned it overseas you may find a way.

    Good Luck with it!
