Thanks a lot for the email. Am buying it for my son who just graduated ontop of his class in Autralia national university (ANU) ,he studied Business Law and Professional Ethics Minor and am so proud of him . I want it as a suprise package to appreciate him towards his achievement and to be delivered before my arrival NT as my family lives in NT.

I work with AWE New Zealand Pty Ltd and we are presently offshore in New Zealand Taranaki Basin on kapo project. We do not have access to phone at the moment,its 15days off and 15days on,which is why I contacted you with internet messaging facility. Where is it located at the moment?Does it have any history I should be aware of? and why are you selling if you don\'t mind my asking.I am already in talks with the courier that will handle the pick-up and delivery it in NT.

As regards the payment, I can pay you through direct bank deposit,using ppal instant bank wire transfer service, I will need your bank details. If you are not comfortable with that, you can set up a paypal account proper at and I will make the payment through paypal, this way, all I will need is your paypal email address.

Good Afternoon Micheal

In reply to your email enquiries; first of all the vehicle is located in Gladstone, Queensland. We purchased the vehicle brand new from B & J Car Sales in Rockhampton (Qld) and have not had any mechanical or other trouble with it to date. It has had all it\'s scheduled services at the Mazda dealership we purchased it from and the only reason we are selling is because we\'ve recently upgraded to a new model.

This is being sent from our home e-mail which is our preferred address for future communications.

Kind Regards

Axxxx & Pxxxxxx

Honestly i am buying this for my precious person as gift and , but the issue is I\'m a marine biologist and i do have a contract to go for which starts tomorrow and am leaving any moment from now.The contract is strictly no call due to the lack of reception on the sea area. But I\'m able to access email anytime as we will make use of laptop so my only quickest payment option is bank transfer via my paypal as i can send money via PayPal or to your bank account from my paypal account anytime.Since I\'m requesting this transaction to be done via bank payment, i will be responsible for all fee/charges on this transaction and I have a mover that will come for it once payment received and they will be handling the title for me. So i look forward to hear from you.
