Car insurance is cheaper for us.
I was paying £800 tpft for a 2001 Laguna 1.9TD over here i pay $550 fully comp for a 97 Verada 3.5 v6 (both with 5 years NCB)
Wife was paying £1000tpft for a 98 corsa 1.0 over here $850 fully comp for a 99 Rav 4 2.0 (with no NCB)
What about car insurance? I have a Kia insured fully comp and it costs $57 per month from the RAA.
Great minds think alike...I was typing this at the same time you were!

Wow what will my car insurance end up being once we are there then. I shall hope its not more than we pay here We pay about £200 per year for our car, me as main driver, fully comp. Its a Laguna estate, 1.9L. Here is hoping its cheaper. Its gone up every year here in the UK for the past 5 years or so now, not my fault but just part of the general increased costs due to the insurance companies having to pay out more. Uninsured drivers and all that
Private school fees :) especially now I'm done with them.

Adelaide 1992 to eternity:)and one day you'll wake up and stop counting how long you've been here.
when i was over in the uk a few weeks ago, everything in the shops was so cheap compared to here
Its all connected to earnings though, irrespective of whats cheaper of more expensive, or whether Britain is cheaper or dearer, its all connected to earnings, an economy wouldn't work or balance if people couldn't afford to survive, (like say africa) I think the UK is very cheap at the moment, though it doesn't seem it now because wages are or seem low, we had it good over the last decade or two, wait till the economy picks up, then it will get expensive here, and Aussy will seem cheap again. well thats my thinking anyway.

I personally find it expensive to live here.Where is BOGOF in the Supermarkets?Second hand old sheds of cars are extortionate,houses are overpriced when taking into consideration the build quality,or their dilapidated state.Rego!Bed linen!Quality shoes!The list is endless.That's my opinion and i'm sticking with it!The flip side though is,it's a better place to bring up a Family than the UK now in my opinion.More civilised,and the Aussies are mainly good,decent hard working people.The weather is not a factor to me,as it can be quite extreme throughout the year,one way or another.Yep,it's better here for us no doubt,and we are grateful for this,but it is not cheap to live here.
