I had a guy beg me when i sold the e36 to sell it to him for $100 less.

 

He then lost the key 2 days later.

I'm struggling to continue being a nice guy...

my automatic reply to these kinds of offers is "YES!! and $1750 (whatever the balance may be) by bank deposit?"

No thanks.  I prefer marbles or bottle caps to cash...

Would you like to swap.

Currently around 85% humidity.  And will be around 35deg C today.  With a lovely feels like temp of 41deg C.

Breathing outside is a chore let alone any outdoor activity.  Pretty much the entire city is hiding indoors.  The air is thick and there is no breeze.  I can't even brag about the embassy pool which you all pay for.  It is like a warm bath.

No help if wanting to get anything done outside... Sunny - great. But everything is saturated and sitting in puddles. :(

Only option is to not use Euro-style plates.

NZTA decree what we can use and where we buy from. Official source, or they are illegal. 

(And tes - the supplier is Australian. 😠😠😠)

I love their BS excuse that their camera's can't read the non official font.

110% bullshit.  The system can pretty much read anything.

All they are doing is protecting a monopoly they have a contract with.

Imagine the bonus returns! The speed camera gets you for speed, and for having the German plates on!

Yeah, turn my $30 ticket for driving 4km/h over the limit into a $280 ticket. Great. Not.
