Some dealers also have friendly deals with their local compliance center. I believe NZTA has tightened up on that a bit, but there will still be shady deals getting through.

can't fault your logic.  in my case. the VTNZ was just down the lane from the dealer.

Maserati can go for the right price.  I need to do the clutch first though and I doubt I will see change from 10 grand for that.  :s.

is it the same kind of setup as e60 M5?

Correct (it was inspected by AA on arrival to NZ but that was months earlier) , made the error of assuming dealer would have to sort immediate issues and the mechanical warranty would handle anything down the line, which is true, but didn't factor on the massive pain in the arse it would be.

Lesson learnt!

Yeah it always sucks learning the expensive way! It always pays to have a specialist with the particular to car look at them as they're more familiar with the cars and will generally have a better attention to detail with them, or at least a workshop with a solid reputation where you know they have highly skilled mechanics.

Yep, the Maserati box is better at everything except parking and cost of maintenance.  Just dont reverse up a hill.

To be fair there isnt a lot with an automated clutch that enjoys reversing up a hill. I know my Golf GTI with DSG wasnt a fan.

It takes a lot of patience to Audi.

Also let me know when you are selling the 535 @GorGasm.  I will try convince the wife.

I have come to the conclusion the best cars to buy are the ones I am selling.

Is the F11 black perchance??
