  1. Importing

    My brother is in the process of getting an NA R34 sedan for around $8500 landed and complied... sucks to be him... he should have got his Ps before the new laws came into place !
  2. Your Car And Your Girl

    I don't have an issue with the cars or the driving... but thinking about the money spent on mods makes me go ! But imports are my partner's passion, so I just sigh and let him... and once he's finished modifying his car... he can start on mine !
  3. Congrats on the baby ! She looks adorable ! Got the Recaro baby seat yet ? I hope bub's mum is doing well and didn't need stitches... and in a year's time she'll have forgotten the pain so you can start planning for the next baby !
  4. Best Robbery Movie

    Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels...
  5. Importing

    If you have a good importer and some luck, you might be able to pick up a cheap NA R34 sedan for that price... depends on what you really want though... coupe or sedan...
  6. I don't know about you, but if I'm buying a gauge, the first priority is getting one that is accurate. Looks is secondary. I don't think Defi or HKS gauges change colour though...
  7. to snub or not to snub

    I'm probably more afraid of someone giving me a "do I know you ?" look...
  8. to snub or not to snub

    I'm too shy to wave !
  9. that's why I suggested a photo shoot. You can get some great photos and have them framed. So even when he sells his car, he'll still have something to remind him of the car and the girlfriend who organised it all for him. It's not too girly and shows that she understands how much his car means to him.
  10. If he really loves his car, might be worth paying someone money to detail his car and then organising a car photoshoot...
  11. Californication

    hehehe... thought my partner would enjoy watching the series, so I've already found the 4 episodes for him...

    Anything distinctive about the car ? Will keep an eye out...

    How big is the beauty bed ? Is there other stuff you need to pack into the car as well ? The Aristo boot should be plenty of space. The Chaser boot is a little bit smaller... I guess it all comes down to which shape you like.

    Have you checked out a Caldina yet ? Or a Legnum ? They're pretty hot looking cars... and you won't have issues fitting your beauty bed in there. Fuel is always going to be an issue with sports cars - especially if you love your car and use the highest octane fuel available too...

    Specs for JZX100: Exterior dimensions (LxWxH): mm 4715 x 1755 x 1400 Interior dimensions (LxWxH): mm 1990 x 1475 x 1165 Wheel base: mm 2730 Curb vehicle weight: kg 1480 Specs for JZX90: Exterior dimensions (LxWxH): mm 4750 x 1750 x 1390 Interior dimensions (LxWxH): mm 1990 x 1475 x 1155 Wheel base: mm 2730 Curb vehicle weight: kg 1450 Specs of Aristo: Exterior dimensions (LxWxH): mm 4920 x 1795 x 1420 Interior dimensions (LxWxH): mm 2005 x 1535 x 1150 Wheel base: mm 2780 I'm only 2 inches taller than you, but I don't have any problems driving the Aristo. The boot space is pretty big. Only issue (and it will be an issue with sports cars) is fuel. The tank in the Aristo is 80 litres. I get probably around 450kms out of a full tank. You do get plenty of power and the car is very luxurious... the air purifier is great too if you have to have pets in the car. How big is the beauty bed ? Perhaps consider the Caldina or the Legnum as the seats can fold down to fit the beauty bed.
  17. My bro's aristo

    Sorry to hear that you have had so many problems with the car. I haven't had any battery issues with my Aristo (touch wood) so hopefully you'll be able to find out what the problem is and smooth sailing from that point onwards.
  18. Californication

    Funny how guys seem to love the show, but girls in some other forums I checked out are saying the show is crap !
  19. Anyone over Import Turbo scene?

    I'm not over the import scene... have kids now, so I've moved onto 4 door imports !
  20. I prefer the look of Brides over Velos...
  21. Pagent question...

    You can see her struggling to get an idea out... and then she goes off on her little tangent about South Africa and Iraq...
  22. Inifinitis are nice... but consider the Chaser or even the Aristo... I love my Aristo... sure, it's auto, but it still goes like anything !
  23. Car boot sale

    Because everyone loves a little bit of booty !
  24. How to remove broken key?

    Put a tiny amount of super glue on the end of your key... give it a couple of seconds to air dry and then stick it in the way it should go into the ignition. Make sure you align it properly or else your key is going to look funny. Give it a couple of mins for the glue to harden and then gently try to get your key out. Personally, I haven't tried this... but I read it in a book of household hints ! Good luck.
  25. Parents shaking kids excessively

    Here's why the hell not !
