Are you buying and importing it directly from an overseas supplier, or buying from a parallel importer here in NZ?

If you're buying it from overseas then depending on the price it may attract duty and GST fees on the way in which could make the savings not worth any potential warranty hassle.

I bought mine from Ebay. Didn't get stung on GST (this time) and got it significantly cheaper with a bunch of accessories.

I considered the pros and cons of warranty and so on but figured I'd take a punt. So far (a few months later) and all is going swimmingly.

I ended up getting it from bond and bond as they had a hundy off.

There was a shop on the shore selling imported ones for 875ish but rarher pay 25 more and get nz version.
