Around the $40k - $50k is a reasonable price range. For that same price you could also get a Spirit R, both of which are rare.

Also RZ came out in 2000 so not sure about 2001.

i think they just made the pearl white rz in 2000 like someone said. and the 2001 was the rb...idk

anyways i did a search and got a large range of prices(had to convert it from yen to us dollars) depending on the milage they start at around 50k with high rotary miles and go to about 100k with low miles. so i guess it all up to wat your price range is and how bad you want it.

out of morbid curiosity...how much did you pay?

I paid $53,000 AUD

For a 2002 Spirit R Type A with less than 10,000 k's on it.

How much did you stump up for yours.

We are talking about $AUS by the way, but until you drive the 99+ FD's you'll realise that they are worth that much.

To drive any FD regardless of its year, you'll realise its worth every cent! I haven't had the honour of driving a 99+ spec FD, but I do drive my 93" FD and love it!

Exchange rates have dropped a little, right before I go to japan too. Not long ago $1 AUD was at 104 yen.

Last time I filled up it was $1.50 a litre. It's hard to find places that have high octane fuel without ethanol.
Speed cameras on mobile vans are only allowed to be put in specific places, which are available on the net. So long as you know the streets you know where the fixed cameras are too. Almost all of the cameras have warning signs alerting you to the fact there's one coming up (almost).

+1 for pictures

AUD$1.50 and it was 98 octane. The 94 and 92 are probably 5-15 cents cheaper, but yeah I'm serious. From what I can work out that'd be US$6.4 / gallon? I could be horribly mistaken with that.

Aussie fuel prices atm: http://www.mynrma.com.au/cps/rde/xch...tch_search.htm

I think that line right there says it all. For starters the original BBS rims on the RZ are worth about double the set of rims the seller threw on so yes it does sound like you were ripped off.

I've had the honor of taking a drive in an RZ and they are indeed rare.

Having said that I hope your car looks something alone the lines of this photo.
