I think it's cheaper for all passenger cars -- previously the ACC levy was $198 per year, now it's $158 for a 1D rated vehicle (e.g. the MX5) whereas it's about $68 for the safest vehicles.

Total cost looks to be $238/year for an MX5

List of levies by vehicle make: http://www.acc.co.nz/PRD_EXT_CSMP/group ... 137747.pdf

Some interesting data points:
MX5 1997 - current: band 3
Nissan Serena: 1991 - current: band 4 (WTF!!!)
Ford Escort: 1982 - 2000: band 3 (WTF!!!)

MX5 97 onwards Band 3
Eunos roadster 89 - 98 Band 1
97 and 98 models overlap but MX5 and Eunos are exactly the same car.
Therefore if your 97/98 is registered as a Eunos its band 1, if its rego'd as a MX5, its band 3.

I wouldn't think 1997 Eunos Roadsters would be a thing anyway. They stopped making cars under the Eunos marque in 95-96. I assume they were sold as Mazda Roadster or something.

Clearly a goose.

Is there a limit on how long I can keep a car off the road as long as I keep remembering to put the rego on hold annually?

I'm not sure whether there is a limit, but the latest race car has been on hold for more than 5 years, so you should be good for a while yet.

Looking on nzta there doesnt seem to be a limit to how long you can keep it on hold for.

My motorcycle has been on hold since May 1977, and just the occasional
reminder from LTSA if I forget to renew it on time. Seems to be no big
deal with them. Yet

My KP62 starlet has been on hold for over 10years now, so no, there isn't any limit
