I thought the real reason was that Japanse banks etc won't finance cars older than 5 years. I think they have pretty strict emissions testing also.
These grey imports do make it to Australia also but there is a pretty small yearly quota on them. My guess is whoever imports them to Aust makes a killing! Cheap imports & it can be sold at Australian prices.
But whatever... I try buy locally where possible (I check locally every time). But when the local store doesn't have something in stock & can't tell me how long to get it in.... why shouldn't I go online, pay 1/3 the price & have it next week anyway?
The Australian market will have to realise sooner or later that the game has changed & will have to adjust. Change is the only constant.
