    Just wondering if anyone has had or is having their VR4's complied at Shogun in Queensland?

    If so, did they do a good job? Did they go over the regular $3000 price, and if so what were the reasons? And how long did they take?

    Mine was delivered to Shogun on friday so lets hope everything goes smoothly!

    I'll be heading down there in a week or so to check out my car when it arrives.

    If anyone wants me to photograph/video/molest their cars, give me a shout :D

    cheers

    Oh crap - that puts a downer on my expectations - I was hoping 3 weeks tops.

    :(

    I don't mean to be cruel but Automotive Imports in Queensland had my car for 5 days ... maybe the other importers should use them ... seems to be a few issues at the other workshops.

    Due to the fact that they stuffed up the amount of compliance plates issued.

    They told me they had run out.

    River City Compliance was the original company to do it.

    Shogun is another name they trade under and they had to get it done through that name.

    They told me they had many cars to sort out....

    But hopefully this week we should hear something, as my VIN now resolves in the RAWS Database.

    We had ours done there but it was pushed through by the dealership. Completed in 7 days. Seems like they did a good job, the only stuff up is the car is a 1996 and it's been compiled as a 1998. When the rego papers turned up and they show it as 1997. Go figure!!!!

    Mine only took 2 weeks at River city, and that was only because they where out of plates, it's not really their fault if they don't get issued enough plates, maybe the brokers out there should keep an eye out for who has plates and who doesn't?

    Options for who has plates are very limited currently - the advantage of using Shogun is that, being in Qld, cars can be complied there and transported interstate free of charge if I used Kiwi Car Carriers to ship the cars. They have plenty of plates, but with so many cars coming in so fast, it's very hard for them to keep track of who applies for which cars under which company, if that makes sense.

    as has been said, shogun=river city, which is where mine as complied, they seemed to do a good job, Danielle was always very helpful with any questions or queries i had (although i beleive she has now left???), it was just the plates that took a while to come through.

    Also, they had so many cars that they had to put them in order of when they arrived for when they got complied, which only seemed to take a week or so to do

    As i understand it, each company gets 130 plates allocated in the 1st 12 months, so they should have 260 available??

    I was in the same situation where my car was complied in about two weeks and has been sitting there the rest of the time waiting for the paper work to be sorted out because they ran out of plates. Today I have paided the invoice and it should be on the way.

    Far out, I'd give my kidney to have only waited 7 weeks. I still don't have mine and it's been in the workshop since around Nov last year

    Why do the workshops need to keep your cars?

    I've been speaking to my compliance workshop in Melbourne and they said they only want the car for one or two days to do the work, then I can pick it up and keep it until the plate arrives! At least I'll be able to sit in it and wash it!!! :)

    because it's quite a few thousand kilometres for me to pickup my car and return it for the plate. ;)
