    Nope mate that's a good one but this one is a mad one lol. About 5min drive away i'll have too swing you guys over there one day and hope they are tuning some turbo's.. I thought the fast and the furious sounds were put on till this Supra drove out and let loose some power... Sounds just like them only better

    When i passed there today and seen some of the cars i couldn't work out what they were with these body kits on them, Look like wide body's gone extra wide some of them.

    Yeh the widebody is the "fashion" at the moment. Big money to get one of those done properly.

    When you sell the 200, you should get an Aristo, there cheap as chips loaded with luxo and powered by a 2j

    Been there before Blue, when me and the wife bought our first house I had to sell my beloved Charger and my 3 dirtbikes. Its worth it in the end though, once you get into the property market and build some equity, the toys return

    Should come down here mate, $24,000 they give you too get moving, House and land start from $176,000... Mum and i are thinking about it also soon, So in 12 months or so you might have too take a right not a left when you come off the freeway from Sydney way.. Might only be 2-3 min away from here.

    Discovering some interesting things about the ol girl

    Ive got it booked in to 6 places in 6 days. Already been through 3 luckily.

    1st - Air con, not a worry everything fine
    2nd - gearbox, i knew it was noisy and leaky so i thought id get it checked over. Needs rebuild was the prompt answer. $1200 for a rebuild or $900 for a 2nd handy from a wrecker with 3 months warranty installed
    3rd - ABS/Brakes - I know my ABS doesnt work, so where would you logically take it? a brakes shop! but who knew, ABS is an auto electrician thing! guess where it went for the air con ? Anyways, rear brake discs worn to point of replacing, cannot be machined and rear pads to be replaced. Need brackets made up for front brake lines as atm they are cable tied to my coilovers. So im replacing all discs with RDA slotted ones.
    4th - yet to go, suspension, general check over and get brackets made up for brake lines, Diff check in there too.
    5th - windscreen seal and bonnet badge. Both free and easy.
    6th - Paint detail, get ity all shiny and pretty

    its been an interesting road, hopefully all done by friday next week.

    Could have been 5 places in 6 days

    Have you looked on ebay for rotors? They seem to always have plenty of brakes on there.

    got it back from the suspension place finally, it was all over the place and everything was loose

    now its getting windscreen seal in and front bar toughened up so it can go distance driving without it falling off :S
