  1. evo 8 recaro seats for sale

    ^ from my experience pack and send are pretty pricey. Try E-go. I sent a pair of gtr seats to NSW from SA a while ago and they were by far the cheapest.
  2. things that annoy you

    1) people who slurp their drinks. Every drink.. "sluuuurrp....'aaah'." then a minute later "sluuuuurp..'aaah'." 2) chronic sniffers. If your nose is runny, BLOW IT don't sniff constantly the whole time you're talking to someone. It's gross. I've encountered both these today
  3. things that annoy you

    continuing on from my previous whinge, asked a seller what width and offset the wheels are, get this: "No idea they came off a r33 and are a dragged offset" I give up... but then I had the same problem selling a set of wheels. I had all the info and I constantly got asked "will it fit my car?" or "what types of cars will they fit?" Why can't people do their own research first, work out what they need and then look for it. Or am I being unrealistic with my expectations...?
  4. things that annoy you

    ^ +1 to that but replace aftershave with perfume.. And people who advertise wheels for sale but don't list the width or offset. Then when you email them and ask for that info they go "dunno, but they looked drift-spec" I can understand that if you didn't put the wheels on you might not know the offset but not knowing the width?? These are important factors when buying wheels

  7. things that annoy you

    Neighbours who constantly play their music - no matter what time of the day - so loud we can hear it inside the house with the doors shut. And it's not even good music! If I want to listen to Rod Stewart singing live I'll go to one of his goddam concerts! I don't need to hear the crackly muffled version you blast into our yard! And neighbours with yap dogs...small, shitty yap dogs. Open the back door..."yap...yapyapyapyapyap..yap-yap,yappity" Scuff my feet on the concrete outside.. "yap...yapyapyapyapyap..yap-yap,yappity...yap" Sneeze... "yap-yap-yap-yap-yapppyapyap" and god forbid I walk within a metre of the fence... "YAP YAP YAP YAP YAP YAP-YAPYAPYAPYAP YAP-YAPPITY-YAP-YAAAAAAP...AARF...AARF..AARF" Shits me to tears... disclaimer: If you have a yap dog - soz. I'm sure yours is lovely
  8. +1 to that ^ Next time something like this comes up get on it! It's awesome fun, the drivers are all great (thanks Tim) and it's for a good cause
  9. sheds/man caves

    we looked at lots of houses before buying the one we're in now. We wanted double carport, solar power, back verandah.. etc..etc. This house has none of those things but it has a big powered shed with built in shelving and a pit with it's own separate lights and power... so we bought it
  10. SA Buy/Swap/Sell Thread

    Braided water lines for a CA with speed flow fittings. Brand new, never used. $90. They can be picked up from Morphett Vale or if that's too far I can post them for an extra $10 text me at 0413 528 472 if you're interested.
  11. Whenever this happens to me I get a kick out of the fact that someone thinks me car is cool! I've never actually thought that people might be thinking I'm too old for it (I'm over 30). My husband has a TRD JZX100 I'm constantly telling him to get himself an s13 or 180 etc as a track car because I know he loves it (not all of us are against having a project car in the shed ) I can't see a reason why either of us would sell our cars no matter how old we get. We met through our common interest in them and it's what we love! Keep it in the shed for weekends and track days. Then you have your responsible daily car and your fun car for the weekends
  12. This.. but the female equivalent
  13. Private Health Cover?

    Ignoring the tax thing, if you don't have private health cover you can still be treated privately, you just have to pay the whole lot yourself. So, if you don't see the need to pay $270/month "just in case" you can save up and pay for whatever it is you need done. I have had private health cover forever under my parents but I've had lots of injuries over the years so for me personally it's not an option to NOT have it. 12 knee ops in 13 years plus various other things... But then I know a girl who hurt her knee, wanted to use the same surgeon as me but didn't have private insurance so she paid out of her own pocket and had it done when it suited her. We're on a corporate plan with BUPA through work, it's $270 for both us each month and they pay the excess if either of us go to hospital.
  14. It was Bloody Brilliant! it was a great night! I miss you guys
  15. ^ I love the metallic dark purple. I also like the Quicksilver that Supra's come in
  16. CARS SPOTTED : SOUTH AUSTRALIA

    Saw a bright yellow 180 on Beach Rd this morning opposite the markets and then further down Beach Rd I saw a 31 parked in an unusual way that made me maybe think that it wasn't the owner who parked it like that? If anyone in SA is missing a red 31 let me know because I wrote down the rego just in case.
  17. CARS SPOTTED : SOUTH AUSTRALIA

    spotted a black 370 at Woodcroft Woolies tonight and then a blue series 2 Stagea parked 2 spots up from me.
  18. things that annoy you

    That Aliance add where they all go "Aaahhhhh...." because something's just gone wrong. I change the channel when I see it coming. And anything advertising PuraTap.
  19. Cycling & MTB

    I'm trying to get more into riding to help my knees . I used to have an old Mongoose that I got from Cash Converters for $120 lol, but I've now got an Orbea hybrid. I'm unfit, I'm scared to ride on the roads in case a car hits me and I suck at hill climbs. So I tend to stick to the bike track that used to be a train track (people who live down south in SA will know what I mean). That way I don't go on the road much and not many people see me so I can't make a fool of myself. I use Strava to track all my rides which is a good motivator because I love getting those little medals when I do a good time I'm average at best but I'm trying. I figure the more I ride the better I'll get hopefully
  20. I really hate 5c coins. I can't wait til they're taken out of circulation. Every now and then someone goes "oh, did you hear that they're gonna get rid of 5c coins?" and I get my hopes up, but it still hasn't happened
  21. we always stop for accidents or breakdowns unless there's already enough people helping. If I was on my own and it was late at night or somewhere a bit seedy I might not be as keen to get out of my car but I'd still call for help or try to do something. Rubberneckers shit me too. Half the time they cause more hold ups to traffic than the actual crash.
  22. What is Santa getting you?

    I'd love a go pro one day. A guy at my surf club has a one and pretty much has it permanently attached to him. Takes some great shots out in the water
  23. What is Santa getting you?

    For a long time now I've wanted 3 things: A maple tree A fridge with an ice maker A purple kettle and matching 4 slice toaster The maple tree is probably not gonna happen because at the moment our front yard isn't tree-spec and there's nowhere for it to go The fridge is definitely not gonna happen because it's about 5 x the amount of money we actually have to spend on gifts (although... my birthday is on the 28th.... combined pressie? ) BUT The toaster and kettle combo is fairly priced so I really, really hope that Santa brings them this year I hope someone in particular is reading this thread and taking notes.......
  24. STAGEA STOLEN, Silver S2

    really sorry to hear about your car There seems to be a lot of Stags getting stolen lately.
  25. CARS SPOTTED : SOUTH AUSTRALIA

    Spotted a nice sounding white 180 on Panalatinga Rd around 4:15ish this arvo who very thoughtfully changed lanes so that I could get out of work - much appreciated And about 10 mins lated exchanged waves with a red Stag on Hilliers Rd at Reynella. Not often you see them in that colour!
