Make sure that you can register the 2cv and pay attention to ADR (Australian Design Rules)

ADR’s and government regulation are all very well – particularly if they’re consistent.:rolleyes:
Our ’89 Dolly was imported to Tasmania a year or so after its manufacture, was fully registered there, then about 12 years ago went to Victoria, where again it ran as a fully registered car. We bought it and for full registration had to put it through the local (Adelaide) test facility – AKA Regency Park. There was never a suggestion at the latter about side (door) intrusion bars.
Despite this, another member of the local Citroën Club, with his recently imported ’88 Dolly (same colour!) had to install “approved” bars. Where’s the logic, I ask!:mad:20 Feb 2012 at 2:40 am #737petermelbParticipant
the logic is that the rules are there to confuse and frustrate car owners while allowing engineers and authorities to extract more money25 Feb 2012 at 1:14 pm #745
A bit more practical stuff on the rules here: https://2cv.com.au/content.php/122-Importing-a-2CV1 Mar 2012 at 2:02 am #748
Hi still on importing…….how has anyone who has imported a cv from the uk paid for it..you can direct deposit but that way there is no guarantee that you will receive it..lots of scammers out there… is there a reliable company etc I can use to do the deal on my behalf..I have done all checks including hp, stolen etc etc.. Any comments from previous importers would be greatly appreciated as I am about to pay in the next few days..1 Mar 2012 at 7:37 am #7492CVikingParticipant

I know someone here in Aussieland who has used this company, they import at a very reasonable price and do a good job, they were very happy with their service:

Is it not the normal practice to use a broker when importing: so the buyer pays the broker, the broker verifies the payment and let’s the seller know it is safe to ship, when the car arrives, the buyer checks the car and authorises the broker to release the payment to the seller.
Or is that what an “importer” does automatically?
