    Those holmart boxes are 2k cheaper than the $5200 I was quoted for a new box. Something doesn’t add up!

    Edit: A Facebook search of holmart doesn’t paint them in good light! Couple people had issues with gearboxes that they had bought and a few had customer service issues. Spending that extra may have saved me some potential headaches.

    Seems strange given they are claimed to be brand new.

    Reasons for rejection;
    A vehicle (other than group L vehicle or a class MA or MC motorsport vehicle with a valid motorsport authority card) that was first registered in New Zealand on or after 1 May 2010 and manufactured from 1 January 1990 has a catalytic converter removed where there is evidence that one was originally fitted, and there is no written evidence issued by a TSDA that the vehicle passed a prescribed metered emissions test in this condition

    If your vehicle was first registered in NZ prior to 1 May 2010, it is exempt from this rule and provided the exhaust system meets the objective noise level test and does not leak, then it will pass a Warrant of Fitness inspection.

    Mine is 2007 so I'm all good. Thanks for the heads up though! Thought I was going to have to find the coin for some high flow cats ‍♂️ sorry to thread hijack

    I am aware of the ability to go cat free in NZ.

    Your "location" says you are in NSW not NZ.
