  1. That's average. Mine do it within seconds. BMW though.
  2. Unless you have a CD/DVD with map loader in the unit you'll end up with a sweet as message in Japanese politely asking you to insert one...
  3. Unless properly sealed and regularly maintained they'll go back to crap eventually 😒
  4. Yep couldn't fault them either, my stock set is wrapped in them. Really good value for money, in my specs at least.
  5. I find 4s to be rather loud at lower speeds, compared with Dunlops.
  6. S Package is what used to be called SpecB i.e bodykit, Bilstein, blacked out headlights. In actual fact, NZ new 5th gen were still marketed and registered as Spec B. Much better specs than an average JDM S Pack with full leather, McIntosh with steering controls, cruise control, sunroof, comfort access etc. BUT no alloy control arms or electric folding mirrors.
  7. They appear to be the same ones as I had on mine (Crystal Eye), probably come from the same factory. Build quality is very decent and certainly look different.
  8. Don't forget to add facelift/pre-facelift to the mix.
  9. I still have a brand new UltraRacing rear underbody brace I am rather keen to part with if you fancy one @Powder Day...
  10. Are you moving onto something else?
  11. How heave are they? Get the seller to package them up and book a courier to collect through TradeMe. I just shipped a set of stock 18s for slightly over $70 (split into two consignments).
  12. I'd rather go more modern with a higher mileage. And by heavy traffic I meant Auckland's rush hour : D
  13. From what I've seen 9.5 for a prefacelift 3.0 is not a bargain at all. You're also looking at 5AT vs. CVT. If you're mostly doing inner city/heavy traffic commute then 3.0 will certainly suck more, open road they're all good. Definitely better for towing purposes. I'd certainly aim for a facelift 2006+ 3.0 rather than a prefacelift. 5th gen have about the same boot but definitely more head and leg room for the rear passengers if matters for you.
