Hi All,

 

My name is Bobby, I just moved back to Sydney and I have my S401 landing in Port Kembla on the 24th March.

I want to know, if anyone here has been through the compliance process, or could recommend any company that could assist? 

I do have a quotation, and I guess I just want to make sure I am not getting a poor deal.

The only comprehensive quote I have received is from Complete Car Care in Seven Hills.

Everyone else has been a bit vague about the entire costs involved. 

 

This is a small gallery of my S401. https://www.flickr.c...0390@N06/710727

This is my single turbo BD5 Legacy https://flic.kr/s/aHsmr1TvV4

This is my youtube channel of my other Subarus: https://www.youtube....4wa8dFNhE0qVzPA

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome Bobbyl!

@Bumpty will know some info on this I believe he imported his wagon from NZ. But he might have done this through Tassie years ago so things would be different.

Cheers

Hey All,

 

Thanks for the answers.

The BD5 is staying in NZ, its too old and difficult to daily around Sydney.

Hi All,

 

So I finally picked up my car yesterday. Its great driving something familiar. 

I can say that Sydney roads are quite poor, I feel alot of bumps and imperfections than in Auckland. 

The car feels solid, and is very very clean right now. 

Its too bad we are on essential travel, as I would of liked to take some photos more scenic, rather than work. 

 

Also does anyone have insurance company suggestions?
