By DAVE MOORE Beware of grey import new Jaguars. They may seem inexpensive, but their home-country war- ranties don t work once they leave their shores of origin and while that nice sat-nav screen might look good, you ll find it s not compatible with New Zea- land systems and mapping. And no, you can t retro-fix it. That s the bad news. The good news is that Jaguar s distributors in New Zealand have managed to secure new stock that makes even some grey imports look a tad pricey. A strong Kiwi dollar and the fact that Jaguar New Zealand no longer has to kow-tow to importers of the brand in Aus- tralia means the luxury British brand s prices have eased. Some Jaguars costing over $300,000 across the Tasman are coming into New Zealand show- rooms in the $200,000s. The XK sports cars used to start at $229,990. Now the same range lines up from $175,000, while the XJ sedans which once had an entry-point of $174,990, now start at $155,000. The Jaguar benefiting most from the new pricing regime is the XF line-up. Once a strictly six-figure prospect, its new starting price of $90,000 for the 2.2d luxury four cylinder turbo diesel is almost $27,000 down on the previous least expensive model in the range. And don t think you get a cheapjack car for the new starter price either. You get a sat-nav system, full, not part-leather trim, and all the iPod Mp3 and smart phone connectivity you expect. Revamped Nissan: Mildly updated. Minor changes to 2013 Nissan sports car Nissan revealed its mildly updated 370Z sports car at the Chicago Auto Show earlier this month. ItgoesonsaleintheUSin June as a 2013 model. There s a revamped front bumper with vertical LED day- time running lights and simpler intake grille and a red reflector to the rear transom that replaces the previous black panel. The car rides on newly designed 18-inch wheels with the Sport models gaining fresh 19-inch items, as well as red brake calipers, and Euro-tuned shock absorbers. There s no changes to the car s engine and gearbox. Geordie torments Mad Max Speedway Champs: Limited saloon drivers, from left: Geordie Inglis, Roy Walker and Terry Grigg. The red clay track was just the ticket at Taipa Speedway when it hosted the annual Northland Speedway Champs on February 18. Trophies were hard fought in all grades and once again were shared around the winning drivers representing their home tracks. The super saloons of Mad Max Andresen and Geordie The Tormentor Inglis were hard charg- ing with Inglis winning the battle. Spectators stood with bated breath throughout the final race when Tai- pa s Terry Grigg pushed Roy Inchman Walker closely for the three rounds right to the checkered flag but could not manage the pass. Kaikohe s Peter Cor- tesi emerged victorious in the first round of the production men s race but Rex Roycroft raced away in the third round to secure the title. Drivers battled it out in the third C grade men s round. Sonny Hal- liday pushed Craig DeWaal from start to fin- ish but DeWaal held on for the title. Production Ladies was a clean sweep for Didi Roycroft, followed by Carole Teix- eira in the final race. The CTRA North Island Men s Production title will be run at Dargaville, February 26.
