    I would say unless it is in mint condition with very low milage "No".

    Take into account about getting it through Regency, changing your dash clocks so it reads in Kph and might have to have an aircon upgrade to cope with the aussie summer.

    There are a few on here that has shipped there cars over so if im wrong they will put me right.

    Or sell it and buy a Holden when you get here lol lol

    Don't forget the import tax on it being a nice German motor, prestige car tax or something.

     

    Price em up on redbook.com.au

     

    If the numbers stack up i would bring it, will save an outlay of cash on arrival.

    Mandy ("Whatnow" on here) has written up a fact sheet on everything involved in shipping a car over (she brought hers) - if you send her an email on mandy@h2h.com.au I'm sure she'd happily send it to you.

    Lots of things to consider when making the decision and it's a bit of gamble wrt the duty and GST charges. I have put all this in a word document and will email it if you PM me with an email address.
