Ver 6 is the latest for GC8...

GC8 not that common in Malaysia. GDB models are the common ones. But GC8 are selling for around 40k to 50k plus in Malaysia Ringgit. Loan not applicable.

From what I know, if your imported car is registered to be use on the road, then yes, import duty will be charged on you. For track cars which is not road legal, import duties won't be charged.

Why not? Still importing the car, unless take apart and import as parts but still got taxes to pay....
