Nice :thumbsup:

Still not changing my plan to get a second hand S6 in about three or four years time, but good work by them anyway :thumbsup:

Suzuki is good looking although appears a little too high/narrow from some angles

IMO Kia has been rolling out some of the best looking cars lately

Hmmm, does look a bit high... But I sort of like it. Looks a bit imposing by being a little higher.

A common complaint at the moment, seems everything is being designed a lot taller. Maybe so old folks don't struggle to get in/out them :crazy:

Have seen a lot of the Kia Koup's around, nice looking and also a couple of bright colours. Like most cars now, probably a little underpowered.

I am very impressed with Supercheap. I got my wife to go there to get a new air filter for the Mitsi. The guy came out to see what one, got one and fitted it :thumbsup:
Sure it’s only a 2 minute (1.55secons?) job but good on him.

I might try sending her there for oil and filter next time…. ;)

I had a genuine GTS VL Commy.
5 speed, big bore exhaust. A tonne of power but one night I floored up Albany Hill and the fuel guage had moved down when I got to the top :hmmm:

I only had it for about 3 weeks. Bought it at Turners damaged auction – stolen / recovered. Bought the bits needed and welded in new metal to the spare wheel well and drip rail under the rear window and sold it again.
Not much work for $1400 profit :thumbsup:

That Alfetta GTV5000 was on NZV8 last year, I must try getting to watch it out on the track some time :paranoid:
Still yet to get to Hampton Downs and its only 45min away.

The Alfetta, in a word, is L O U D.
Only 45min? Hell man, you're almost twice as close as me! It's a pretty good track, and as they develop the facilities, it's only going to get better.
