it is possible to apply and have a car added to the SEVS list.

it's a pain in the arse to do, but it's possible.

Basically, it's about protecting the aussie market. A car that is readily available here, won't get on the list. If you can prove its not readily available, you're ok.

That's how 360's got on.... there was a time, believe it or not, where there were only about 6 or 7 on the market.

Pigs Arse!

That is the dumbest thing that I ever heard regarding the 360 getting on the list.

The 360 was on the list due to the importer not taking out a full volume import license on the car which left the door open.

I have tried to get the 599 on the list and the door is firmly shut!!!!!

All cars on the list are low volume.

Its possible to get other low volume cars added to the list.

But only if you prove a case.

360 are on because they're low volume, AND, there was a time when they were hard to get.

599 are almost common! And certainly not even close to low volume, you're a clown for even asking!

Someone should import nobles, they'd make some profit on them. $30k buy in the uk.

Low Volume and Full Volume importation doesn't necessary refer to the actual number of physical cars imported/available on the market.

Full volume is when the manufacturer of a particular auto brand applies for importation(I am assuming different rules and criterias apply) rather than a local/non factory related importer.

I did not do any research as to why manufacturers seem to be able to claim full volume and shut the door on their competition, I am assuming they have to adhere to more stringent rules/testing market back up/support and perhaps have the benefit of certain protections under trade agreements to shelter them from unfair competition.

Follow the links and you can read the eligibility criteria and the reasons why the F360 was deemed to be eligible under SEVS ( scroll all the way to the end to see basis of eligibility )

http://rvcs-prodweb.dot.gov.au/sevs/049-04.htm

Also the cut of point when Ferrari S.p.A decided to bring the car in as a Full Volume (not all F360s are eligible)

http://rvcs-prodweb.dot.gov.au/sevs/299-01.htm

Definition of full volume:

"full volume" , in relation to the supply of a vehicle, means the supply of a vehicle of a type in respect of which identification plates can be placed on vehicles of that type, in accordance with an approval under section 10A of the Act, in unlimited numbers.

You are always right aren't you??

Why don't you read Fortis's post!

The importer has taken the full import license on on 599! When I say that I tried, I meant that I looked into the reason why you couldn't import a 599 and this is because it was a full volume import and therefore the original importer has the full right to to this particular vehicle.

Why don't you just admitt that it is possible to be wrong for once??

Wrong! Wrong!

Wrong! Wrong!

I'm right when the facts back up what I said, which they do, as does fortis' post.
