It's a shame that the importers bring in what they want rather than what the customers would like.
The buyer ends up with second best as they have no alternative without resorting to a lot of trouble, wasting time and money in the process.
I dont think anyone wants 3 doors to be honest. The market shows they sit around for months before someone picks them up. POV spec Golfs are cheap and are gone within a couple of weeks. Kiwis love a good deal
