@one4worldpeace,
These brake pads are HOW MUCH in Australia ($187.54) Part Number:    P16002
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/330502184761?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649#ht_1476wt_862

Damn I can get the same pads here in the USA for  $42.20USD  + 20.25USD shipped to Australia ($59.31 AUD) Part Number:    P16002
http://www.ebay.com/itm/FRONT-Brembo-Brake-Pads-DAIHATSU-FEROZA-Hard-Top-F300-/330500699582?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item4cf36075be

What has happened over there in the last 6 years I haven\'t been there, these prices are just criminal. I can buy 3 full sets for the price of one.

But to a better point, I do think this is a great thread to have started one4worldpeace, put all your eggs in the one basket so to say.
To many to list here as the limit is only 300 characters

Easy to embed. On the eBay listing you\'ll see an item number on the right side in the \"Other item info\" box, copy that number. Come back to Warfs then start your new post, Above the smilies click on the \"ebay\" logo, this will insert into your post
Code: [Select]
[ebay][/ebay], Simply paste the item number between the
Code: [Select]
[ebay]item number goes here with no spaces[/ebay]

@one4worldpeace, the 1st link to the rear light guards,can you please remove this, I will tell you why, I bought them and they are a cheap, inferior knock offs, when they arrived they didn\'t even fit properly due to the bolt/screw holes being welded on incorrectly, I personally don\'t want any of our members buying a product like this that is inferior. I ended up getting a FULL REFUND INCLUDING SHIPPING from the seller in the UK, the only good part about the whole transaction.
I can also pretty much say this for the Rear bumper guards as well, they are made by the same person.
Hope I wasn\'t rude in anyway explaining this.

Here\'s something you don\'t see in Australia every day, a 2000(?) Rocky. Obviously an import and the seller has confused( ;) ) the LO3 (Import mod code) Mod plate date for the manufacture date, but still looks neat with low KMs

I recently looked into importing one from Japan. The car I was looking at was around AUS$2500 but by the time I paid freight (not too bad) and taxes and duties (OMFG) it rapidly went to over AUD$19,000!!!!!!! Ah Australia, the lucky country (yeah, lucky our government doesn\'t just take all our money :laugh: :angry: )

My father just sent me the same link, too funny, but It IS NOT A 2000 model, it is stamped on the modification plate as 2 August 2000.( my birthday actually, just minus a few years)
It is obviously a imported Daihatsu Rocky from Japan, when it arrived it had to be tagged and plated as a 2000 within Australia, but it is either a 90-91-92 model, the reason I know it was imported is the engine number is in Japanese and it is stamped F300 as well. Probably only had 50,000klms when it was imported as well, the 100,000klms are probably done in Australia. Nice clean looking Rocky thou
