  1. We should screw up the market. All advertise our cars at once for $15k+ and see what happens.
  2. This one was a manual 6 speed. I wouldn't mind having a go in another one tbh. Wondering if the one I had was a dud. It was well loved though and not neglected. Did you drive your brothers @GorGasm? His was a Mk6 right? I need to learn my Golfs.
  3. Sorry yeah MK6. I don't know my VWs. I went out of my way to drive this one to see why people like them. I didn't.
  4. 7K worth of Rotaforms and black paint for the grill and 130i badge?
  5. Interesting some of you like the Mk5. I had one for two weeks in the US and we didn't like it. I wont go into too much detail. But I found it noisy, the steering, clutch and gearbox had no feeling. It wasn't all that comfortable or as powerful as people made out. It was a meh car for me. Maybe that's what makes it a good commuter? But then I would just get a Mazda. Its Meh and will cost you far far less when (if) it goes wrong.

    Oh well. I will wait another month. My parts from ECS still haven't shown up. Two days from the US to NZ. Five days in NZ so far. Out for delivery apparently. At least the $800usd package didn't get picked up by customs.. Their new system is sh*t isn't it. Well not for us.

    Been waiting a month to get the 130 to BMW for a recall notice they issued. There is a snow warning on the Remutaka's in effect until midday tomorrow so we rang to re-book. Next appointment. 4th of August. Is Winger BMW really that busy? Or are they just fobbing off recall customers.

    Ubiquiti UniFi

    Cheers guys. I will have to have a hunt around for some info on the dropping of features etc. Especially around the security stuff. The home will have some smart devices. Especially the heat pump. Remote access to these devices is a must. I house sat a few months back and the house had a Smart Kettle. I laughed and thought why would you. But asking it to turn on from bed was fun. And smart bulbs are handy. The sharing of information is my only concern. There is ways to block all that I guess.

    Ubiquiti UniFi

    So I have been looking at options for home network and security. I'm in the position where I want to start from scratch removing all my old random gear of various brands and moving to one well reviewed system. Ubiquiti so far seems to have everything I want. Especially integration of systems, remote management, a UI anyone can use. And the security software and hardware is not a stupid amount of money and doesn't need a subscription service. I'm looking at a WiFi 6 mesh system (maybe overkill) Cloud Key Gen2 POE 4K Cameras and supporting swtiches Only the cameras will be run via Ethernet (POE). All other devices will be run on the low latency WiFi. It all looks great on paper. But I am wondering if anyone has a system, thought about getting a system. Or is running UI stuff in their workplace? Or maybe you are running something else? Cloud Key Gen2 https://unifi-protect.ui.com/cloud-key-gen2 4k Cameras, https://www.ui.com/unifi-video/unifi-video-camera-g4-pro/ AmpliFi Mesh system (Not the WiFi 6 version) https://amplifi.com/gamers-edition WiFI 6 version - The only thing not at a reasonable price. https://store.amplifi.com/products/amplifi-alien-router-mesh
  11. Whites the best colour for them.
  12. Another update and a surprise. Went to fill up the diesel truck at Gull today. Whilst standing there holding the broken trigger lock on the pump handle I noticed a sign where there is usually an ad. I filled up the 1 series there the day it started running really bad. Worse than it already was due to the valvetronic. I don't think the 95 fuel is at fault. But I think it probably compounded the issue. Parts should be here this week from ECS. Will find some time in the dark to install them.
  13. E87s are great and I'm glad I got one over an equivalent E90. That's all I have to say.
  14. Update. It dropped a cylinder yesterday completely. No. 3 coil pack died. Luckily I was 1km around the corner from a wrecker that had one. Still running like crap with the same code for the valvetronic motor. Ordered a new motor and gasket kit. 6 new coil packs. And a rocker cover gasket from ECS tuning. All for less than what bmw wanted for just the motor.
  15. I got 5w30 Edge for 50% off last year. Usually use Elf oils. But nobody sells it down here. At a reasonable price that is. Like everything in NZ....
