  6. https://new.grabone.co.nz/automotive/automotive-accessories/p/car-wheel-clamp-2 Cheap $20 each Car Wheel Clamp or Steering Wheel Lock, hopefully should put most amateurs off their menu.
  7. Today's Japanese auction, this 1998 SUBARU IMPREZA 22B STI (2,138km) was Sold for ¥15,115,000 (approx NZD$190,473.78) Appreciated 3 times of its original value!
  8. Yes you are right! After getting some motivation from you, yesterday I have installed one for my wife's next Subaru. Brought it from The Warehouse for $13, then plug and power tapping. I should have done it for my father's Forester a few weeks ago (to save him $50) but I was just plain lazy, after just spending the night installing DRL and rear parking sensors for him. =P

  10. Interesting facts, learn something new everyday! Due to these touch screen units, (sometimes with built-in front & reverse cameras & dash cam recorder), FM expanders are often the simplest and cheapest option. Plus I mostly listen to mp3 via either SD cards or USB. It is working well (clear and loud) and I think I was told it is a 14MHz, just need to do the Maths, but once the stations are preset, it is just a matter of 1, 2 ,3. After checking the "Band expander conflict frequency" from your link, I guess I am lucky that all of my favourite stations are between 92.6 -102.5 MHz =) No worries delta, it is always good to hear other people's' point of view with experience or taste. Nothing personal.

  12. Came across the Dark Knight Legacy this afternoon, see what you guys think.
  13. Good Service and value for money as I got a FM expander installed today by Alarm One Audio. https://www.facebook.com/Alarm-One-Audio-209593369118980/?hc_ref=PAGES_TIMELINE Located in East Tamaki area. ADDRESS: UNIT L, 154 HARRIS ROAD, EAST TAMAKI. Contact: 09 2156303 / 021 368181
  14. After converting my father, from his Nissan Qashqai to a Forester SJ5, I took the Forester to Cooper Tyres in Howick for a 4 wheel alignment this afternoon. Dan was very friendly and helpful, speaks with his knowledgeable truth. High quality service and yet not very expensive! See what you guys think if you are over this way. 4/180 Moore St, Howick
  15. If you need to do compliance with your imported vehicle, this is the best place so far I've experienced. Straight forward, no fuss. Friendly family business since 1998. Much better than VINZ who is over priced and charged me $1,100 for a low volume vehicle certification (LVVC) 2 years ago which included a tow to the East Tamaki certifier, then back to VINZ, then again to get the LVVC plate on the forester = 4 tows. What a rip off as I was only notified afterwards with the invoice.
