  1. Harlequin soob ftw Pretty just slows you down 😄
  2. Not in our lifetime. The latest BRZ is still rwd, gets a 2.4 NA motor with a mighty 170kw/228bhp. Which Focus RS were you referring to ? The 2nd gen FWD one was rubbish, sounded amazing, didn't handle that well, and didn't feel like it had 300hp. The later 4wd was a ball of fun with the rear clutch pack activated drift mode. PS nice burns on the TM auction, what a bunch of bellends 🤣
  3. That might have been pre-release info. In JDM land there are 3 versions, including a 1.5 NA FWD with 10-speed CVT 🤣 I drove the black car in my pic above, it's one of the original TNZ press cars. Faster and better handling than the current STI. 😄
  4. NZ new got the best spec ! Circuit pack F+R LSDs plus the satnav, JBL stereo etc of the Comfort pack Most of the stupid priced imports are low spec. Avoid.
  5. Better late than never... Mk7 GTI is a much sportier drive than a 6R. The 6R uses the previous gen (Mk5) motor with cambelt and is much more reliable, many chain drive Mk6 GTI's have suffered from chain tensioner failures - expensive, often fatal. Golfs use a Haldex AWD system, nominal 90/10 torque split to front, a slow reactive system. Subaru's permanent AWD is a superior solution. The 7R is much better but still no match for a GTI with VW's front LSD - like a Haldex operating on the same axle. A GTI Clubsport/Edition 40/40 Years - same car , different name for different markets, or the 7.5 GTI TCR are much better drives and once moving, just as fast or faster than a 7/7.5R.
  6. All rather underwhelming. Best wait for the GR Corolla 😄
  7. Add a roof rack and carry a full set of spares 😁 Me fail - just noticed the date 😝
  8. did JDMs come with factory immobiliser ? my 00 nz new sti v6 had a locally fitted security system.
  9. i'm no help. not been to elite since eddie's days. they have moved ? 2020 sti ? i'd leave it alone ! last of the breed.
  10. 🤣 https://www.reddit.com/r/s***ty_Car_Mods/comments/ic0nbo/ive_never_seen_a_sadder_existence_somebody_needs/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf
  11. New shoes, just in time for rainy season 😄
  12. https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/motors/cars/honda/listing/2699307753?bof=VGrGJfI4
  13. not a bad collection, my fav momos are pre-airbag - prototipo, veloce etc.
  14. can't afford a de lorean ? try this 😂 https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-cars/mitsubishi/auction-2642132835.htm
  15. in general... if your car was first registered in New Zealand on or after 1 May 2010 and manufactured from 1 January 1990 and has a catalytic converter fitted, it will fail a WOF if you remove the cat, https://vehicleinspection.nzta.govt.nz/virms/in-service-wof-and-cof/general/exhaust/exhaust-emissions
  16. yep, it's return to palmy was shortlived, didn't know it was for sale, i might have been tempted back... no idea who bought it but the car was in very good nick.
  17. Blue one uses a Fast Car Company bodykit made in UAE. https://www.motor1.com/news/359789/suzuki-jimny-amg-g63-lookalike/
  18. the w**k numbers on those cars is actually part of the car model name. most modern audis have had their motors way out over the front axle line too. but euros have long lost the plot with model numbers. where once they told how big a motor was now they are either nostalgic eg. c63 or seemingly meaningless eg. x5 m40. meanwhile, is a jimny dressed up to look like an amg g-wagen crime or not ? i kinda like it...
  19. "good pads" depends on intended use. for general pottering around stock is fine bendix ultimates, for a bit more enthusiastic driving. ferodos if you want a bit more. the old ts2000/formula was a great road/sometimes track pad but need a bit of heat in them. never got consistent results from ebc. match your new pads with some good fluid and you should be good 😄 bigger rotors etc. may improve stopping power but usually all they do is increase your unsprung weight 😄
  20. on those wheels it's a car crime ! stancenation 😂
