  1. That's it. We need more tunnels!! Someone else can supply the Lambos and F-cars.
  2. Too quick, I wish we have kilometers long tunnels. Sunday drive would be up and down these tunnels all day long.
  3. Ah, I love the Mt Vic tunnel. Did you slow down to open up a bit of space, and nail it? The sound bouncing around the tunnel walls always puts a smile on my face....
  4. If you can't feel the scratches under your fingernails they will buff out.
  5. The conversion was nicely done, it was a pity the rear lights were left in their original form. Engine wise, would need to be brave to touch it without knowing whether it'd had a rebuild. Missing lots of interior panels, what happened to it? One key, missing rear seats base on both sides, including lumbar support.
  6. Didn't realise it was in Wellington!! When are you going back to the South Island? Seems that you're happy with the car.
  7. Good luck with that .......
  8. Does it produce white smoke out of the exhaust? If it does, does it smell sweet (like coolant sweet). If the answer is yes again, you've got head-gasket leak. My '96 E36 318 touring did have this issue, big white cloud following the car, sweet coolant smell, mayo under the oil cap.
  9. Thanks! Useful to know which one which is. I used the smaller bolt (DME) for the +ve connection mostly because the Ctek's terminal is too small for the other one. Been charging overnight and will keep it charged to get a healthier battery.
  10. Since the battery is at the boot, it seemed that I can install the Ctek connector somewhere in the engine bay. Just wondering whether anyone out there knows how to install that correctly? In the attached file I have marked the -ve and +ve points, need to confirm whether they are right. Also which of te two bolts I should use to connect the +ve lead?
  11. I got an email that linked to the non-FB registration page. However the email didn't state the date of the event, only suggesting it'll be sometime in March.
  12. What is an S15? Looks like a Nissan
  13. Apparently half of NZ Herald readers agree that speed limit tolerance should only be 4 kph above the limit for year round. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11180340 Aucklanders eh. Vote differently if you don't agree with this (clueless) half.
  14. Are they really both diesel? I have around 50 cars in my TM watchlist, can't really tell any longer which one's which :-) I need a year 2000 + car to avoid getting warrant every 6 months. Also trying to get the youngest possible with the lowest kms. There is only one BMW in my radar, an '02 Compact in Chch. Will try Welly car first before expanding to other cities.
  15. Am looking for a manual for my son to start learning to drive. Came across a couple of later model Puntos, one diesel and one petrol http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=659280281 http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-cars/fiat/punto/auction-659941552.htm While this model hasn't been condemned as another quirky little Italian, has anyone here had any direct experience with it? More of a concern, Fiat NZ doesn't seem to offer Puntos for sale anymore. They only have the 500s on their website (apart from work vans).
