Can the South African based back roomers tell me which of the Japanese brands build in South Africa?Im thinking of the pick-up trucks which look pretty good value with the current Rand/Pound exchange and am tempted to import one to the UK.

Won't SVA approval be a problem, never mind the transport cost and logistics?

Some comment on this in the DT last saturday.


Re: South African Cars - T lucas
SVA no real problem,transport is affordable,just not sure what to buy.

I'm out of the office at present, and with the Chrimbo thing, am quite busy.
I'll email you on the 27th/28th with a list of what's about.
Alternately, email me at with a fax number, and I'll fax across a list of what's available, with spec, as well as current prices.
Remember, our vat of 14% can be taken off those for export.
Also, send me a list of your requirements. and I'll speak to friends in the trade, and find out what's good, and what isn't.
at R17.50 to the pound, could be a VERY good investment.
By the way, other backroomers, a BMW 320d, full spec, comes in at R192 500 at present. So the speedo is in km/h... GO FIGURE!
