FOUND -MADSTI- White 98 Coupe Christchurch


Recommended Posts

Talked to my neighbour (cop) and he said there were so many subarus stolen over this weekend including two crashed and possibly both written off just in wellington last night. Both within 5 mins of where i live. They are the ones he knew of anyway

Was that the same one on TradeMe not long ago for around 30k?

 

Yep super nice car that the poor fella has obviously put a lot of effort and money into

Saw a couple of comments on facebook around this one that apparently 12 were nicked in chch over the weekend, not sure on the source here but yeah. I'm no expert and don't know the details but I'd say this one was scoped out and targeted due to the value of the parts on it.

Yeah that kind of behaviour isn't just some kid pinching a car for a joy ride, this is an organised effort. You would really hope police can get a lead on a case like this. Where is the chop shop and where are all the parts going? Someone saw something...

 

It seems to be a growing problem, anytime I have to street park my car in the city I disable the sh*t out of it. Can't stop them towing it away but it is better than nothing. Maybe it is time everyone needs to buy a gps.

 

It sucks that a few low lifes can ruin it for for the rest.

@YoungOne this is absolutely disgusting. I feel for the guy man.

 

I get so irate about theft in general. Takes the lowest of the low to steal from someone. Such an invasion of personal space and trust. Makes me so mad. 

 

I was recently thinking of approaching the local police an offering to use my car to sting these scumbags. Seriously, I'm so over it.

 

@IZichard Agree, maybe the only way is to GPS every car. But even then, there will always be ways around it.

 

Like you said too, where are all the parts going? Facebook is as good a black market as anything but I don't typically see high profile parts on there. Are they being shipped off overseas?

That is exactly what I'm starting to think, NZ is too small of a place to sell rarer parts without someone realising where they came from. It's hardly like you could sell a 390kw engine on Facebook without someone close to the owner noticing.

 

If parts are actually going overseas then that is serious business.

      Afternoon team,
      im new to the group first time posting. Im hoping some body can help me get my launch control all dialled in on my link g4x. Ive had the computer and car all tuned from chris at prestige awesome knowlegable guy super happy with the results but now im wanting to get my launch/anti lag all dialled in. Ive been reading multiple different forums etc all with different conflicking information which has made me nervious with what do i listen to this or that if you get what i mean. Now ive started to make myself familiar with my PClink software etc the past few weeks and im eager to learn how to do minor setups or tweaks etc so im not relieing on my tuner so much and obviously saving myself abit hurt in the back pocket. 
      Now back to the question at hand.... Im wondering if theres and one who could please share there knowledge and wisdom with setting all my values, timing, fuel etc when i have launch control armed and engaged, or even a launch tune file they can possibly send me to load onto my tune. Ive figured out the setup of my digital inputs turning launch control on etc and its obvisously on its pre set factory settings. It engages but doesnt sound the greatest or as angry as it should i feel. Hence reaching out to you good buggers. 
       
      Cheers in advance for any info and help yous maybe able to give me.
       
      Cheers Shaun
