Smile Mike from Oz

G'Day All,
'Long time listener first time caller'
I have watched over this site whilst deciding what vehicle to buy. The information here is fantastic.
I live in Brisbane but have moved to Italy for a couple of years for work. My wife and I have always enjoyed 4wd/Camping and decided on purchasing an expedition type vehicle at the end of last year.
After much debate we have settled on a 1550l DOKA from the UK. Was it the smart vehicle to by for what I need? Who knows.... But I do think a have purchased some unique experiences for my family.
My intention is to get the vehicle right for us ie. gearing and options prior to it returning to Australia as I do not want the hassle of importing every little thing constantly. We are still debating whether to drive it back, but that is a whole other story.
There are a few things that will need addressing but for the most part it is quite clean.

I am still not a full bottle on a whole lot at the moment, mogs are quite unique with the number of options out there. Slow and steady though reading old posts and materials has been great.

It would be great to chat to a few aussie blokes who own these things and here about their experiences import/purchasing and using this things in oz.
Is there anything they wouldn't do without ie working gears or something.
