These cars raise the standards for comfort levels and for what technology and luxury can be packed into vehicles. Even the base models are expected to impress.

Australian Car Import Regulations

Australia has strict import regulations governing the importation of motor vehicles, these laws are basically set up to protect Australian car manufactures. The restrictions basically state that no-one can import a car from overseas if that car is already manufactured here in Australia, (for example Honda bring the Honda Prelude to Australia, so this means no individual person or company can import a Prelude.) The only way to bring one of these restricted vehicles into Australia is to have personally owned the vehicle overseas for not less than twelve months, this is known as a personal import and is open to anyone for one car per year. You must have proof of ownership of the vehicle and a passport showing the overseas stay of not less than twelve months. As you can see this is not possible for most people. There is a lot of red tape involved when importing vehicles, therefore it is always advisable to let someone with the expertise handle the paperwork. For this reason it is very beneficial for an individual to let CARizma handle the work for them.
