80 sounds a bit rich, they have got to the age where they are starting to come down in price, personally i would get a diesal (actually i did a diesal 80 for about 1/2 that) gas like most accesorys does not really add value for the seller

keep looking

30K should get you a normaly aspirated HZJ105 GXL/ RV check the redbook www.redbook.com.au for prices.

I dont think that 80 would be worth $29K for a petrol.

FZJ80R Wagon 40th Anniversary 8st 4dr Auto 4sp 4WD 4.5i (Aug onwards)
average kms 160,000 - 195,000
Trade in price guide* $19,700 - $23,000
National average price - private sale* $22,300 - $26,500
Price when new (RRP) $56,590

normaly aspirated simply means no turbo.

it is truly personal choice as to what you consider is best for you, I have a HZJ105 with a 1hz diesel(non turbo), the petrol 100's cost less and have heaps of punch which equals more fuel consumption of course. Either engine is great but depends on what you want it for if its the city you will probably need a big thirsty 4.5L if you drive like every one else in the big smog.

As for extras, it depends they really do not add any resale to a vehicle, but the good ones to look for are (IMO) window tint, driving lights, cruise control, bull bar, twin wheels carriers ect. the list is endless.
Also a lot of the aftermaket extras can be purchased secondhand with big savings like cargo barriers and bull bars for instance.

I'd hate to offer any real advice other than checking the redbook before you purchase and get it looked over closely before purchase. The RV's are excellent value offering 8 seats and cloth interior without electric windows.

Ohh any handy extras you install keep the OEM parts to replace them when you sell/upgrade as the aftermarket extras are worth more to you selling them seperately. I learnt that after selling my 75 series ute and leaving driving lights, and a XD9000 warn winch on it

I got my late 2000 GXL 100 series (petrol) with 48,000 kays for $33,900. I unnerstand that the petrol models have come down quite a bit since fuel went up, and the demand for diesels have climbed correspondingly. Not a fan of gas - having done 1/2 a mil kays on it. Too rough on th engine...

Gday philzer
I was just at Lander toyota in Blacktown, Sydney and they had a 100 series 99 model petrol with tj roof rack, kaymar rear bar cargo barrier for 33 000 dollars.
I was talking to action motors last week and they were willing to ship a car from WA to Sydney for nothing. The same would probably apply with dealers over here if you asked them.
