    WLG -> AKL Drive

    This. And from Te Awamutu take the back roads to Whatawhata and to Ngaruawahia. If you are really keen, Highway 22 is a must drive.
  3. Time restrictions! No point cleaning the car if it’s going to rain!
  4. Autosure warranty for 3years was $4995 and the excess was $1000. I decided to bank it and spend the money on servicing. So far the only non- scheduled maintenance was coolant line leak which was fixed for $700. Brakes/tyres/fuel/5w-40 oil will be major items. Rest of car is solidly built. M cars burn a bit of oil and mine goes through a litre every 3500-4000kms. Less if spanked. ? I coded out the active sound. Made long distance driving more comfortable as the car is very quiet now with no fake noises.
  5. Depends on the tune and of course preventative and scheduled maintenance. If the car had the right spec, you could get the engine rebuilt and know that it’s good - not like the F10 is regarded as a classic anyway. lol.
  6. Exactly. It is Aventador performance for less than the cost of a brand new i30N.
  7. It is a bit silly I’ll admit - I just wanted more sound and a mild tune. It sorta escalated after that?. But the car feels like a different animal. It feels as if it’s lost a few (hundred) pounds and sprints off the line just tickling the throttle. Wet roundabouts are taken very cautiously indeed and if it breaks - I know I had fun in the meantime. These cars are mad fun unleashed.
  8. F10 M5. Downpipes and a tune. Everything else stock. Now I giggle and sh*t myself at the same time. ?
  9. Stay safe people.
  10. Oh so very nice. Not sure if it’s a members car but goddamn it’s hot. ?
  11. I don’t see pics! Lol
  12. I’ve figured it out. MFM means MotherF******Monster. ? 16.2L/100kms on a drive to Oakura Bay via Old Russell Road. Superb road. No such thing as a straight. No traffic at all which was a bonus. Get to drive past the Russian’s place at Helena Bay.
