This man is a serious threat to the mental health of other quattro-listers!

To those outside NZ this may be hard to comprehend. The reasons for this are 
mainly related to price, our small population, an even smaller population
of car nuts and ready availability of all manner of performance cars if you're
prepared to pay and wait! We have minimal regulations for importing cars
compared to USA and Australia.

The second hand RS2s are on sale for NZD$145-146000. That's USD$103-104000!
I think they are over-priced and concur with Dave's suspicions about long-term
collectability, but we may well be wrong on this.
