Mountain and oceans yes... In the South Island.
Lower taxes ... Not so much
Try lower wages.
Expensive housing
..... The list goes on
That true, but as an x pom one thin NZ doesn't have is all the baggage that comes with living in the Uk or US.......more serious crime & drug issues, mass unemployment.
I know where I'd rather be living

Hi guys, I don't want to hijack this thread too much.  If I'm off my rocker here please let me know in a private message.   ;)

The tax rates I see say that someone in NZ who makes $70k (USD) in NZ pays $14,020 in country tax, where in the US the same person pays $13,430 country + $3,700 state + $3,600 welfare.  And we don't get free college or health care.  Health insurance is an additional $5,000+ per couple.  College is $20,000+ per year.  Town/property tax is an easy $3,000 - $9,000 a year!  And then there's sales tax!  All USD.

Just looking to get out of this mess of a place.  Again, I'm happy to discuss in private messages.  I know car guys are typically helpful around the world.  Thought I'd start some research with my fellow dubbers!  Thanks!

NZ is GREAT!
I think you would be better off selling the Corrado in USA and buy a Harley for the same bucks.
Import that here , flick it and get a Dub here.
HEY! HO! LETS GO!
