I know for examples australian VW golfs need minor mods to comply with aussie harnessing standards. Maybe now they dont... No idea.
When i pick up the car, i will be able to tell from any special inserts to the owners manual what the country specific mods were.
Yeah, I think you're right. NZ cars are basically EU spec so no modification required. I suspect AU requirements are somewhat designed to help protect local assembly in Australia....car assembly died in NZ a while ago now.
