    I can second this. Our 2007 Mazda 6 (petrol) is just about to tick over 210,000k's. Gets serviced every 10,000- & never misses a beat. Needed a top engine mount & new front rotors at 150,000 k's. Has a timing chain as well - so no expensive belt to replace...

      Mazda 6 are too expensive at around 6k.
      Needs to be more like 2-3k

        2 Questions:

        1. If I was a young P plater from Victoria & I'm holidaying in NSW/Brisbane. Does that mean that they'd only be able to drive cars that appeared on the NSW/Queensland approved cars that P-platers are allowed to drive?

        2. What is the most fun to drive (or quickest) car on the NSW p-plate approved cars list that is an automatic and is a 4 seater minimum? Thinking probably the latest 2.0 VW Polo GTi or a Toyota 86/BRZ.

          What package are you using?
          EA Pro because its the only one i can get my hands on for $0 [albeit in demo form]. Tried finding Pipemax but cant seem to get a copy short of actually paying for it. In terms of peak power I think the result is a bit...ambitious, but as a tool to understand the camshafts i chose and to get the EX/IN ratio to 75% its been pretty useful. Just concerned about its accuracy....because if it is actually accurate, im making peak power around 1000rpm higher than i wanted to

            Given that the slicks I had ordered are not on their way from England.....I'm casting around for options, Hoosier make a dirt speedway tyre the same dimensions, I'm sure it will be soft, but sticky?

            Has anybody ever used a speedway tyre on bitumen ? and what happened ?

            Given I'd be using it for a 35 second hillclimb I don't see that it is purely going to overheat and disintegrate......

              Pretty sure that they have *really* soft sidewalls.

                What sort of price will re-chroming a bumper? Just for an idea of cost. BMW 2002 and thinking about cutting the spare 'long' bar down to a 'shortie' style.

                  .
                  You follow the state your licence is issued in, and any restrictions or exemptions applied to it. Same goes for speed limits.

                      NSW Police will enforce the licence conditions applied to your current licence issued by your residential state. Drivers are required to comply with the licence conditions applied by the State or Territory that issued the licence, regardless of the State or Territory you are driving in.

                      Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

                        I think current GTI doesn't make the approved list.

                              Thanks for replies on NSW P-plate rego guys.

                              New question. When I was way younger there were cars that had a higher than normal ratio of attractive (usually young) women driving them. Celicas, Capris (fwd convertibles), etc. Almost always worth a glance, especially if high up in a truck during summer. What are the modern equivalent cars that hot women drive these days?
