    Hi Gary,

    Where in NZ do you live? I used to live in Wellington and owned a 1993 Hilux Surf. Loved it!

    I lived in New Zealand in 2007 and have been back in California ever since. I was attending uni there. Loved everything about NZ and plan to move back with my wife and kids when they get a little older and can appreciate living abroad.

    Do you own a Hilux Surf now or looking to get one?

    Hi jake no I don’t own a 4Runner/ hilux I’m trying to fix one for a friend. I’m hoping you guys on here will be able to help with some info. It is a lovely place here to live. It’s funny you want to come here and I’ve wanted to live in California one day I may get there for a trip lol

    Well, ask away whenever you're ready. I'm sure the community will be able to help.

    CA and NZ are similar. The central coast of CA reminds me a lot of NZ so you will feel at home in some respects. Other parts of CA can be quite different......like the fact that we have more people living in San Diego than you do in all of NZ. But it's well worth a visit one day.
