    Car expences:

    (1) Price

    (2) GST

    (3) Warrenty

    (4) Rego

    (5) Insurance ( if you want TFT or Comp)

     

    Hope this helps

    Heres a link to help calculate the stamp duty you will pay on the purchase price

    http://www.getapproved.com.au/car-finance/stamp-duty-calculator

     

    Registration is about $600-700 a year, but can be taken out for 3 or 6 months

    Check this one out for car insurance, its not who I'm with but have been told by quite a few it is very competitive

    Hope your settling well

    For car insurance check out Allianz and SGIC too - we found Allianz cheaper by at least $100.

    Can I please just have a few definitions clarified:

     

    Car expences:

    (1) Price - understand this one

    (2) GST- ??

    (3) Warrenty - would this be paid on a second hand car?

    (4) Rego - understand and link has helped me to calculate - thanks

    (5) Insurance ( if you want TFT or Comp) - understand

     

    I ust need a little bit of clarify on GST and warrenty do they apply to a second hand car being purchased for around $5000?

     

    Thanks

    gst is stamp duty.if you buy a car from a dealer between $3000 and $6000 they have to give you a basic warranty for 2 months or 3000km or thereabouts.probably plenty of "exclusions"though

    if your after a cheap run around try brian thredgold at brighton.always good for a deal and top fella.
