Any one imported one or know what kind of price you would pay for a decent one? I know import costs are around £1000 but I don't know how much the actual cars are worth

i think the biggest problem is finding a good example if you can find any in japan, as in less you r there your self you have got to trust some 1 elses description, there are few inport web sites in japan and they can do a complete deal including shipping to the uk, its not the import tax tho, and oyu will have to trailer the car, register,mot and tax it. and if it comes wiht any good electronic goodies they tend to go missing on the docks

Yeah my honda badges went missing, and my rear speakers when my integra came over. Asked them last time I spoke to them and they said about 3500 on the road, not bad I suppose but a lot f money for a runabout.

Liam,

My experience is that importing a car costs around 1000 pound. But don't forget the VAT based on the value of the purchased car. I have a 1987 Suzuki Alto Works RSR in good condition and willing to sell it. If you are serious interested please mail me a PM and I give you details.

Greetings

Marcel

Thanks for the offer mate that would be awesome, but I wouldn't be buying for at least another 2 years. Planning on keeping it that long? I think I'm going to come to the annual meet this year to learn a bit more about the kei.

Liam,
Don't worry I am not going to advertise it. just mail me when you are looking for a unique Suzuki. I have got a few Suzukis and loving restoring cars and keeping them a while.

Reviving my old thread because I didn't want to make another virtually identical one. Been in touch with an importer that I've used before, waiting to hear back from him. Really looking into getting an alto works next year now. Am I right in saying that I should get a 90-94 model which shares the f6a engine with the cappo cos if I get any other one I will have a nightmare trying to get parts for the car?

Spotted this one in the Japanese auctions tonight, 1987 with 116k on the clock. They don't seem to come along too often these days.

Thought I'd post in here cos there's no point in making a new thread. Still looking for one of these but won't be for a while still as im getting a skyline soon. Which is better to go for the RSR or RSZ? I read somewhere the 4wd system is a bit of a gimmick and is therefore just extra weight.

A lot of kei manufacturers such as Daihatsu and Suzuki offer 4WD on their smaller cars such as the Mira/Alto (all variants, even the 660cc non-turbo, boring versions) to help with winter conditions, especially in the Northern islands of Japan such as Hokkaido, where they're incredibly popular,

I don't really think it's a gimmick. It definitely helps in the snow and seems to provide more grip all around, from what I've found when switching between 4WD and FWD on my Mira. Also gives a lot of traction off the line as well, compared to many FWD cars (such as my friend's MK5 Golf GTi. :P )
