Heartbeat Cars Parramatta Rd Sydney

Recommended Posts

So I've been watching these guys for a while, since they are importing vintage Japanese cars more and more.

I guess when you are cynical like me, you are rarely disappointed.

Here is an example of behavior we've seen before, advertising a car for sale, when you don't actually have it in stock.

Exhibit A (as in Spirit R Type A).

and link to car in their Albums.

But when looking on Goo-Net, what do I find?

http://www.goo-net-exchange.com/usedcars/MAZDA/RX-7/945018061600204401003/index.html

Stock Number:0204401A20180615G003
Location:Aichi Japan

#1459 out of #1500 Spirit Rs

Japanese Domestic Price 3,880,000 yen

Actual dealer with the car is GTNET

So whilst this isn't the biggest indiscretion in the world. You may recall a certain someone advertising a Z432 for sale that didn't belong to them.

I'll leave it for you folks to decide if you think this is a problem or not?Screen Shot 2018-08-10 at 6.29.26 PM.png

Hey Gav, I am not defending them or their practices. But they never say they stock all of these cars. For the FD mentioned, they even state it's listed for sale in Japan. I assume though that they can buy from the dealership and import it. I have noticed quite a few of the importers do this, showing what's on offer in Japan. 

Quote:

"Listed for sale in Japan. 2003 Mazda RX-7 Spirit R Type A (1459/1500) with 69,000kms. Expected landed and registered high $50Ks"

Note: Heart Beat Cars also trades under the name. HIMAWARI VEHICLE IMPORTS PTY LTD

https://www.gumtree.com.au/business/himawari-vehicle-imports

It was registered last year: 30-06-2017

However there is already a process in action to deregister the business.

Refer to Government sites here:

ABR

http://www.abr.business.gov.au/ABN/View?abn=95620159293

ASIC

https://connectonline.asic.gov.au/RegistrySearch/faces/landing/panelSearch.jspx?searchText=620159293&searchType=OrgAndBusNm&_adf.ctrl-state=11wx9pkado_40

HIMAWARI VEHICLE IMPORTS PTY LTD ACN 620 159 293

ABN 95 620 159 293

When I do a Google Search for "HIMAWARI VEHICLE IMPORTS PTY LTD" I see old mates business listing.

They may not be directly related, but it has got me thinking..

Q> Anyone know how to get the owner name based on an ABN? It looks like ASIC wants to charge for that information?

Hey Gav, I am fairly confident the only way to find out is to pay for the ASIC record. Unless you know someone who knows someone sort of thing.

Here is another business record:

Thanks, also worth keeping an eye on Google Reviews.

Sort by "Worst Rating"...I know not everyone leaves fair reviews, but it seems some things remain a constant theme for Parramatta Rd dealers.

I wouldn't be trusting anyone who is importing cars.. Ive got 18years motor trade experience and know plenty of them and haven't found one yet i would trust.

You can do a Equifax company search but would cost money. would tell you who directors are and what not..
