    It isn't a VR-4 though, it is an ST-R, non-turbo V6. Still a manual though, and it is a very nice colour :)

    Meister Blue, Sunroof, nice car :)

    i think your addicted to the Legnum, either you have a lot of people and gear to move, which i suggest you buy a bus or (and i know) NZ have lots of cheap cars, because of their relaxed import laws, i reckon i could of bought about 6, 97 GDI's for the price of me VR4

    I can't see why not, no model of Legnum was sold in Aus, and the ST-R's even have the same chassis number as VR-4's, EC5W :)

    WE can only import "performance Cars" as Grey imports, Other wise we would have a poo load of base model old Jap cars comming in, and then no one would want to buy VN's and EB's a a first car :p

    So why the change Brad? fuel or other reason's ?

    fuel, servicing, fear of the auto blowing up, and this ST-R is perfect, the towbar is very important, and it would have cost quite a bit to get a good one put onto the white VR-4, and towing would only increase the risk of the trans blowing up.

    ST-R's are basically bullet proof, the engine is very strong, as is the gearbox and I hope it will last me for a long time.

    I only bought the white VR-4 as a stop gap while my purple car was off the road, I was originally looking for a manual ST-R, but the cheapest I could find was $7500 and it had done 150km's, and didn't have a towbar. I bought the white one because it was only $4000 with a blown gearbox and I had a spare one sitting around. I was always going to sell it for the right ST-R.
