Not sure if this is appropriate for these forums(feel free to remove if it isn't) but I figured someone would be able to help here. Been considering importing a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 7, 8, or 9 over the past few weeks and i've done a bit of research and found the average cost of buying one through the auctions or online listings etc. But I contacted an Japanese car importer that is on trade me, and he told me that they weren't allowed to import them. I asked why and he gave me this answer: "It is for NZ emission standards. They are very strict.." So I tried to do some more research but didn't really find anything that backed what he said up. I tried to look on NZTA's website and use their 'Fuel Consumption Import Statement' online checking to see if it is allowed, but didn't have enough information for it to work. So I've come here to ask if anyone knows whether it actually isn't possible to import an Evo 7,8 or 9 into NZ because of NZ emissions standards. Any advice would be appreciated Cheers
