    Well, that changes depending on the exchange rate! Some things are cheaper, some things are more expensive. The biggest shock to most people is the level of income they receive, which is generally lower than the UK.

    If you don't need the latest plasma TV, every electronic toy going and the flashest car on the block, then you'll do fine!

    No, ours is a mere V6 twin turbo. Not an uncommon car here!

    Trademe seems good Stevey, without the overheads of a dealer. you have to be careful though.
    I am thinking of a big beast for myself though :icon_lol:

    It's a Mitsubishi Legnum (Galant in the UK) VR4.

    Nattydred, you seriously shouldn't admit stuff like that in public. Thats how rumours start!
