Buying a Car Interstate - Stories

So I was on carsales and couldn't help but notice how cheap(er) or bargin wise cars are in Queensland compared to here. I'm curious to know who has gone interstate for a car and how it went (pictures tell a thousand lies). Like was it just a pos, or did you end up buying? It's a late model car im looking at, but still theres neglectful owners out there.

I'm asking because out of the 123 VZ SS' I looked at, only 4 (all not in vic) were the colour I wanted.

The cheapest VZ that isnt white in Melbourne is a Red (yuck) SS, 130,000 clicks for $24,000.

Compared to this VZ SSZ with 61,000 clicks for $25,000.

VZ SS

I didn't realise they were so expensive. A mate of mine picked up a red VZ SS about a year ago now for $19k off a holden dealer.

Often cars are cheaper interstate. I'm not sure why, maybe there's less buyers in more remote areas or something.

Yeah 19 and even down to 17 for a VY, but there white and no leather over 120 clicks for that price usally.

What did your mate get for 19k?

I want a Turismo Blue or Black.. Leather.. QLD one is a bonus for bein a SSZ.

Yeah i brought a few cars from interstated before flying to nsw, qld and sa. 5 from memory and never had a problem with them driving them back to melb not 1 of them has broken down on me (touch wood). But i did once had a problem with 1 car i was going to buy, the owner was changing stories about the car and things didn't add up. So i didn't end up buying it. Number 1 rule you don't like it, just dont buy it plain and simple
