Geoff at Prestige Motorsport helped me to source my R33 GTR VSpec with a level of customer service I have never come across before. He made the purchase of my car a comfortable and enjoyable experience with great communication everyday and an array of photos and discussion of what would best suit my budget. Geoff is a great person that truly wants what’s best for you when it comes to purchasing an imported car.
I don’t know what else to say other than your service was beyond my expectations. A friend of mine put me onto you and said that you had been around a long time and you have a very good reputation — now I understand why that is.
There is no doubt that if I was to ever purchase an imported car again I will be contacting Geoff at Prestige Motorsport. Still today I can’t get over the wonderful customer service and advice he offered.
Thank you Geoff !
I have used your services twice over the last 5 years.
You helped me import a HR31 GTSX COUPE from JAPAN which has won several awards for most original import.
You also helped me import a very rare Skyline HR31 GTS-R COUPE.
The price on these have risen a fair bit since I bought mine.
I even hear that JAPAN are actually buying back some of their rare original skylines as they want to keep their heritage.
Anyway, The Skyline HR31 GTS-R will remain in my garage for ever.
The white HR31 GTS-X coupe however I plan to sell to help fund a budget American Muscle car. I have had offers of $12,000 for it which is not too bad considering it cost me 8 grand or so.
I have done a lot of the usual internet searching and received a lot of conflicting shipping quotes from different car dealers in the States.
At the end of the day I keep coming back to you as you were fantastic during the import of my 2 skylines. I trust your knowledge and would happily use your services again to find me a muscle car.
I have gone over the car (2002 Supra RZ twin turbo 6 speed manual) in detail and am satisfied that it is a genuinely good vehicle. A friend visiting from Japan translated much of the maintenance paperwork, it seems to have been really well maintained over the years by Toyota, kms are genuine and it is in very good mechanical condition. In fact it looks new now that all the small dings have been removed by the paintless method. We’ll see what’s next!
Your service was very much appreciated, I understand that you needed to extend yourself beyond the norm to put this deal together under the circumstances, for that I am grateful.
Thanks again for your service.
It’s been a few years since I imported a 2004 Mitsubishi EVO 8 MR through Geoff and the team at Prestige Motorsport. The car was what I wanted back then and still is today.
I get asked where I got it from in such good condition and I always let them know. Trust is a hard thing to earn and easily broken, but trust is exactly what Geoff delivers.
Now if he could only influence foreign exchange rates or Aust customs taxes…
I contacted Prestige regarding a Mitsubishi Starion. You have been really helpful with information and locating models to consider so I would easily recommend others looking to import to go through you here at Prestige Motorsport.

After speaking to another company that offers the same type of service as Geoff we decided to use Prestige Motorsport instead of the other company as even just in one phone call he appeared to be honest, communicable and knowledgeable. Within a few hours after our initial contact with Geoff, we already had extra information and options emailed to us. He continued throughout the import process to be reliable, easy to deal with and helpful.
His contacts in Japan provided clear photos of the vehicle we chose (Skyline Crossover Premium), but our expectations were surpassed once we received the car. Even better when you see it in person !
We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to use his services.
I would just like to give my unreserved recommendation to Geoff and his team at Prestige. Late last year I started the quest to look for a E51 Elgrand for the family. After my great experience some years back finding a Stagea RS FOUR with Geoff’s help it was a no brainer to rely on his expertise again. From beginning to end my interaction with Geoff was nothing short of professional. He was prompt, proactive and nothing seemed to phase him.
I knew enough about the import process to be dangerous. Like a typical guy I did not RTFM in the beginning and was making some really bone-headed picks. It would have saved everybody a lot of time if only I read through the material Geoff provided. If it had bothered him Geoff never showed and he patiently repeated the info I needed to make better picks.
There were many occasions when less than ideal vehicles showed up and being somewhat in a hurry to find a car it was tempting to lower my standard just to have something to bid on for the day. Against his best interest Geoff always talked me into walking away from a less than ideal pick. He could have easily taken advantage of my desperation for a vehicle but that never crossed his mind. He said more than once it’s about finding a car I am happy with and he really meant what he said.
The car we found was everything I set out to find, and then some. The right year, low Ks, had the right equipment and very very clean. The final price tag was right on budget and that’s including everything, tyres, on roads, the lot. The gentleman from the compliance shop could not stop remarking on how clean the car was. When my wife saw the car she could not believe it was 10 years old, it’s a stretch to say it feels brand new, but we could not be happier on how clean the car was. Like most imports the car came with many hidden goodies, we are still finding every little thing that came with the 2005 Elgrand. It was an exceptionally good score.
Geoff took care of everything up until the point the compliance shop receive the vehicle, and I meant everything. There was not a point in time I was lost for what to do and all the detail in the background, Geoff and his team took care of it. I know some people think twice about paying a fee to an agent but I can honestly say it’s worth every cent. Twice he chased down some extra savings – one over air con degassing the other over a reduction on customs. He saved me hundreds of dollars that a lesser agent would have probably deemed not worth their time and I probably would not have cared if I didn’t know. Geoff is the best in the business and he took the time to make sure I did get the savings I am entitled to. It’s these little things that makes Geoff’s service exemplary in the industry.
As long as Geoff is offering his service, I will not be buying a car any other way. If you can afford the lead time and a bit of patience, I whole heartily recommended importing your own car through Prestige Motorsport.
I just received my imported family Van (Toyota Estima 3L G Premium edition).
Prestige Motorsport came recommended to me from two (independent) colleagues at work.
I won’t hesitate to say that Geoff gave me the very best customer service I have ever experienced.
Geoff is obviously very used to dealing with people who have endless lists of questions, and he does a brilliant job at addressing each and every one of these in a timely manner, (all with a great deal of patience). For what you would consider to be a very nervous experience (first time buying a car that you’ve never seen in another country) all the processes are pre-documented, clear to follow and work out exactly how they were described.
Prestige Motorsport have obviously dealt with all the caveats you would expect in this type of purchase, and so the resulting experience for me was very simple and smooth.
I took my time finding the right car too for our family, and I never felt pressured to hurry it along.
So… so far so good. The estimated final prices were accurate. The car is immaculate, even the compliance shop commented on what a great example it was and that Geoff had done very well. The after sales support has also been appreciated.
Thanks Geoff, you have my highest recommendation! I would not hesitate using your services again.
The car is immaculate (how can a 10 year old car have no gutter scrapes on the wheels!) and drives really well. Although I had a little anxiety of buying a car sight unseen, Geoff’s professional approach and his checks and balances (minimising the chance of it being a lemon) made my purchase much easier.
I think the effort involved importing a car is definitely worth it. Once you are aware of the timeframe involved, and you narrow down the list of what you are after, the range of vehicles available in Japan is amazingly large compared to local options.
I have no hesitation in recommending Prestige Motorsport.
Cheers Geoff !
I am writing to thank Prestige Motorsport for their great service. Prestige Motorsport helped me purchase my 1995 R33 GTR VSpec from Japan. They were recommended by a friend as the best way to import a car from Japan and they were 100% correct. Prestige guide you through the process from when you start to look for your car till you receive it in your driveway. They remove as much risk from the operation as is possible. And in my case when I had some unexpected costs, Prestige took responsibility and ensured I was not out of pocket. A great example of customer service. If I import another car from Japan I will be using Prestige and so should you!
I imported my 2008 V36 Skyline 370GT Type SP 6 speed manual through Prestige Motorsport.
What a beast! Exactly what I was after at the price I wanted to pay.
Thank you Geoff for all your assistance through the process. I will definitely be using your services again.
Thank you so much for your guidance and advice throughout this whole process to import my 2003 Skyline V35 350GT Premium — it was an experience that I am thankful that I took the plunge into.
The car is going great and I really love driving it and getting the attention that goes with it, I ended up keeping the rims that came on the car as they do seem to suit it. I may still change these down the track and potentially put some 20″ on it but not a priority at this point, currently looking to upgrade the stereo unit though.
I have had a lot of interest in the car from friends and strangers so I have passed your details onto a few people so hopefully they get with the program and look at importing a car through you.
I would also be happy to talk to anyone about my experience so feel free to put anyone in contact with me that would like to talk to someone who has gone through the process. Thank you again for your patience and support and I look forward to the next time I am in need of a new car. Here is my review that I’ve posted for you on Facebook:
I recently imported my first V35 Skyline coupe through Prestige Motorsport, with the help and assistance of Geoff Risbey, who I cannot thank enough for his advice and support throughout this process. As this was my first time importing a car into Australia I was a little bit apprehensive on the idea, but I did some research on the net and came across Prestige Motorsport, after a bit more homework on the reviews and experiences of other people I felt confident that I had chosen the right broker to deal with.
Geoff was always ready and willing to give me as much or as little support as I wanted, he listened to what it was that I wanted and then with his guidance we worked out a rough budget and set about finding my dream car. The daily auction information that Geoff sent me was very helpful and if I found something that was of interest Geoff would discuss the car with me and provide his honest opinion on the car, if it was still a go he would then arrange an inspection of the car at the auction house through his connections in Japan. Geoff would then come back to me and discuss the findings and if he thought it was a prospective purchase, what impressed me was that Geoff was willing to wait until the right car came up and he never pressured me into buying a car he did in fact advise me not to purchase a couple of other cars.
Finally we found the one and commenced the auction process, it was a little nerve racking wondering if I was going to win the auction and then finally Geoff called me to give me the good news. From here Geoff then guided me through the process of exporting the car and then with the customs and compliance here in Adelaide.
Just wanted to say thanks for all the help you have given me over the past 4 or so months to source my 2011 V36 Skyline 370GT Type SP sedan. My friend has picked up the car and it seems to be in good order. Can’t wait to get back and drive it! Anyway thanks for answering my questions and emails and keeping calm during the wait – it is much appreciated and I will definitely recommended you to anyone who is interested in importing a car.
Geoff provided amazing service while I was purchasing my 2007 V36 Skyline Sedan 350GT Type SP. His knowledge is outstanding on the process and is extremely proactive as is his communication and organisation. I had many many questions along the way and Geoff was always quick to get back to me with an answer or an update.
Cannot recommend Prestige Motorsport enough, I got an amazing car for an an equally amazing price. Thanks Geoff!
