  1. Ordered to pay by the disputes tribunal. I have already printed out an enforcement order application just need to fill it out and send it in but figured I'd talk to my uncle about it first (partner at a law firm). I'll be going and seeing him this weekend hopefully so I'll let you all know what he says Sent from my SM-A530F using Tapatalk
  2. Who has been and why? Ive recently been through the system to get payment for my old Legacy that someone rolled. The amount theyve been ordered to pay isnt all that big however they are now refusing to pay and have started threatening me. How did you all get your payment when they refused?
  3. Went and checked this out. The boss man at my local VTNZ said that because its a sedan it cant be reclassified as a 2 seater. Have an update though. I got in contact with a local rust repairer and he said he can fix it for me and do it properly. So today i stripped all the rear seats and parcel tray out ready for him to work his magic on Monday. If anyone has any other BE5 interior that isn't that hideous blue and black leather, lemme know
  4. Not sure, will actually go measure it tomorrow. Has to be 150mm away from the mount. Just looks hacked to pieces and it will need certifying if I weld in a plate. Sent from my SM-A530F using Tapatalk
  5. Took the "new" legacy for a warrant and it failed! Someone has cut the speaker holes too big in the parcel tray and too close to the seatbelt mount, so now it needs a "panel beater report" and none of the ones in Rotorua will do it. Bought another crap heap. Fml [emoji26] Sent from my SM-A530F using Tapatalk
  6. That's the plan, but for now I've got to get it a warrant so I can daily it while the falcon is getting fixed. Going to rebuild my rev b motor and slap that in at the same time too Sent from my SM-A530F using Tapatalk
  7. I didnt even know this existed! I'll have a go through it tomorrow. Thanks Wabbit [emoji4] Sent from my SM-A530F using Tapatalk
  8. Right, so I've bought another legacy (number 5) but this time I bought a rev d one! Anyway, I'm getting code P1241 for the ECV, anyone know where to start looking? Car gets no boost at all till secondary and even then it's only got boost for maybe 200rpm them boost cuts. Any ideas? Sent from my SM-A530F using Tapatalk
  9. Oops, I did a thing Dont know how to upload photos and this didnt work damnit.
  10. By cheap I mean $500 haha Sent from my SM-A530F using Tapatalk
  11. Someone find me a rev d body! [emoji3] my block is at almost 270km so suppose itll need a freshen up Sent from my SM-A530F using Tapatalk
  12. Had to scrap it because I had to move house. Currently looking for a rev c sedan body because I dont know if my rev b drivetrain will work properly with the rev d. But hey, open to be corrected haha Sent from my SM-A530F using Tapatalk
  13. Big day today, didnt take many photos but you get the jist of it. Dont suppose anyone has a rolling body lying around? Sent from my SM-A530F using Tapatalk
  14. Right. I can go into details now. In short, im not covered for this as i wasn't the one driving and being under 25 anyone else under the age of 25 isn't covered. It hurts but i understand where the insurance company is coming from. At current im $510 down for glasses that went flying and tomorrow i have to get the car out of the tow yard which will set me back another $1378. The girl who was driving has agreed to pay for the car and all the damages but has told me that i wont get the money for months or she will have to pay me weekly. Her next offer which im yet to take is to take her car ( A manual, turbo MR2) as payment for my car and im trying to get her to pay for the towing as well, which again will be a weekly instalment thing so im not impressed as im the one out of pocket. but we are lucky that i managed to get out relatively unharmed and her with a small cut on the shoulder and a concussion. As to what happened in order to cause the damage, she wasnt paying attention and as we came around the bend she noticed we were going into the other lane and yanked the steering wheel to the left and smacked the brakes. All 4 wheels locked up and we understeered into a bank which sent the car airborne and we rolled a few times. Im surprised that neither the ABS or the airbags worked. As for those wanting to help, just do me the favour of checking your insurance is up to date and allows other drivers, and keep yourselves safe. This has been a very eye opening experience for me and i dont want more people getting into this sort of trouble like i did. Oh, and if anyone sees a facelift, manual twin turbo legacy for sale thats relatively cheap, let me know. it would be such a waste of my ST kit if i bought something else.
  15. I think it may be time to tell the community. Be aware however that insurance hasn't told me anything so I'm not going to speculate on anything. However, this happened yesterday. It's a weird relationship that people like us have with cars and some of us see them as tools, others as family members. My car was the latter. She was the only thing that made me happy no matter what and while she was relatively stock and the most reliable car I've ever had she was fun. Hopefully I will get another one day. No one was seriously hurt, and it was not my fault. But hey, these things do happen. Goodbye Legacy. Sent from my SM-A530F using Tapatalk
