    $50k F10 M5

    Nice. If I was in the market I would consider this one: https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-cars/bmw/auction-1686865623.htm?rsqid=8777f61e7f144332aae31497a11b1f7e A bit of a gamble here but mitigated some what by CGA coverage.

    First ever Monster truck Front Flip

    That's pretty awesome! Where do I get that kind of wheel and tyre combo from? Just so I can teach the Avalanche a party trick πŸ˜€

    Supercharged V8 Ute anyone?

    @Gabe79 - at last something we can agree on ☺️. This is what HSV should've done with their Supercat version of the Colorado. Hope they get it right with the Camaro...
  10. Awwwwww helllllllll yeeeeeeaaaahhhh! Makes absolutely no sense in the EV age but who gives a heck! I want one! Just cos haha!
  11. Ever since owning a V8 Holden Adventra and now a HSV Avalanche I've always thought that they need to be manual. Was considering converting the HSV into a manual but that seems like too much of a mission. Over the last few days I've been reading about Transgo shift kits (something like this: http://www.turboindustries.com.au/ProductDetails.aspx?ProductID=4aae67c7-7a07-417e-b70b-045645ffd328) which has got me thinking is the way to go (eventually). From what I've read the Transgo 2 shift kit seems to be the most practical option as opposed to a full manual kit. The actual conversion seems straight forward. As I'm not that knowledgeable about these things - anyone had experience with this sort of thing? Good and bad points of conversion, what kind of cost would it be, what do I need to consider - torque converter, HD trans cooler, rebuild gearbox first, etc. Cheers

    Hi from Auckland

    Cheers - thanks for that. Although not thinking of the CRD variant specifically,’ this does give me something to ponder over...

    Hi from Auckland

    Welcome aboard! I'm interested in your comment re: Jeep GC CRD. Also curious - What did you like about it? Been having some thoughts lately of a Jeep GC 😞

    What'd you do to your BMW today?

    I have an idea of a funner game: how fast can you empty the tank? I literally have a blast playing this game πŸ˜€ From an ex-M5 and current multi V8 owner!

    As the saying goes - "if there are no PICS, it doesn't exist" πŸ˜ƒ
