    Road Toll Not working

    You're not wrong but I think 1 in 4 is a bit extreme. In terms of having passengers while on your restricted, I think we should adopt some of the conditions which apply to Australian Provisional 'P' licenses, particularly being able to drive with one passenger, regardless of what license the passenger is on. When I did my defensive driving course, I remember the tutor telling us that studies found having a passenger was actually safer than driving solo, if they're aware of whats going on around them. Mobile phones definitely don't help. As for actually passing your restricted test, I think it's a pretty thorough test which is good, however it involves no open road driving. The full license test is a bit of a joke. Took me around 15min, a third of it was spent sitting at traffic lights as I did it just before a long weekend.

    Good stuff mate! Saw you in the E30 a couple of weeks ago and was wondering how the progress on the 540i was going haha. Wicked, glad you got it all done!

    FS: BMW Waffle Caps

    These won't fit 4 stud weaves. I have a set sitting next to me and the back/locking mechanism looks totally different. Edit: Kyu bet me to it!

    Quick Questions

    Definitely not ripco. They charge something like $40 a metre, and they only sell it by the metre. Supercheap has it for $12 a metre, mind you they too only sell it by the metre. Might be worth trying somewhere like BNT if supercheap is too far away.

    What'd you do to your BMW today?

    E30 had his little brother come visit today for a wash! Apparently 1 of only 2 white E46 M3s in the country.... Only photos we took were pre-wash... D'oh!

    As far as I'm aware it's to do with how many posts you have. Not sure how many posts you need to shift up a gear!

    Handfull

    Yup, this thing would definitely be a weapon! I really like the fact that it still looks totally stock. I think this was on trade me a couple of years ago with an asking price of $17k? Correct me if i'm wrong!

    Quick rant thread.

    Yeah it's for the M20. I think it's the right one as it has a Ryco part # on it too which matches what I took off the car when I bought it. The Ryco unit is the same size as the Mahle

    Quick rant thread.

    Ripco. How do they get away with their exorbitant prices?? For example, they're selling this filter for $27!! The Mahle filter, for comparison, costs just ~$6.40 (converted to NZD) on FCP euro. The Repco junk has about 1/3 less filter material than the Mahle and is made in Indonesia. Mahle is made in Austria. The holes on the thread side of the filter are also larger on the Mahle, I can only assume this helps the oil flow better. Repco also tried to charge me $40 for 1m of fuel line, what a joke. Went to Supercheap, $12 per metre. I'm sure this kind of thing doesn't only exist in the automotive industry. And people wonder why they're losing business to online sales from overseas... Ignore the sawdust on the used Mahle, it's been sitting in the workshop. Needless to say I will be returning the Ripco filter. /rant
