  1. ^ A certain amount of common sense comes with age, but in your case I get the feeling it won't be enough...
  2. WTF am I reading, are you idiots really this stupid??!?!?!? Seriously??? Turning your headlights off before a corner... speechless...
  3. S15 Silvia Vs Chaser

    I've got an auto 100 with just a cat back. It gets 8.9l/100kms highway driving, 10l/100 regular driving. Parts are more expensive than a Nissan, but if you change it yourself it isn't that bad. Been pulled over for legit reasons and never looked at twice. I use it purely as a daily and I love it, I do around 10 hours driving in it per week and literally can't fault it.Mine is a Mark II so possibly flys under the radar more.Full comp through just cars (22 year old) is ~$600.
  4. things that annoy you

    The icing on the cake... I've gone from checking the classifieds here (a year or so ago) at least once per day, sometimes a few times, to weekly at the most over the past few months. I really don't think I'll even bother now. It's like Woolworths saying "Oh hey, we've just thrown all our products out the back of the truck randomly into our store. You'll see lots of different products you wouldn't normally be looking for or give a damn about, but let's just move forward - it's for the better." Why try and "compete with eBay and Gumtree"? Stick to being nissansilvia.com, improve it as necessary, seek feedback BEFORE making changes - seems like a winning formula to me.
  5. New Classifieds

    LOL. Nothing more to say.
  6. Anyone know if an on-board camera can be requested/ taken on the spot as evidence if police believe the car it was mounted in was doing something illegal?
  7. torched Evo.

    Mt Barker has indeed turned into an absolute feral breeding ground. There are still nice pockets but the cancer is spreading rapidly. And what's worse, the council seem to be encouraging the growth of it ..
  8. show us your tattoos!

    Had to laught at the 10cm of arm hair left.
  9. what is your latest purchase?

    Two of my latest rare acquisitions. 1 of 300 Yamaha Concept strut brace Driver and passenger door window wipers
  10. things that annoy you

    Getting stuck behind a semi who seems to think he's helping you by dropping his wheels off the edge of the tarmac when you're trying to overtake, showering your car in rocks. Also going past an oncoming semi who does the same thing thinking he's giving you more room, once again blasting the front of my car with grit etc. Just stay on the bloody road you're not doing anyone any favours.
  11. anyone good with car audio?

    From what I've read if your car came with the factory sat nav you can have some problems. There's a pretty big thread on JZX100 which is where I got all my info from, and more than a few people had the same problem as you.

    This head unit - Pioneer AVH-P3200DVD This harness - http://www.ebay.com/...S-/150609745889 Car previously had a stock head unit so nothing had been previously butchered. I also changed the tweeters to Jaycar ones as I thought they were responsible for some harsh, distorted treble, but it was my source, not the speakers.
  13. anyone good with car audio?

    Me. I think it was your thread I posted in on here, I bought a Metra harness and apart from 4 wires I had to join myself it all plugged straight in.
  14. Is your shifter off a JZA70 R154? If so, I'll buy it off you to offset some of the cost.
  15. anyone good with car audio?

    Come listen to mine, sounds perfect, wired into the factory amp.
  16. things that annoy you

    I stop further back when everyone is coming to a stop, then creep forward to minimise the queue length, so as to maximise the amount of cars getting through on each sequence. Makes perfect sense to me.
  17. things that annoy you

    I do that all the time. You've obviously never been in a car hit from behind.
  18. things that annoy you

    Carrying on from this, when you ask a seller a few questions, and they only manage to (barely) answer the last question. Or, when idiots don't put a price in an ad, state "make an offer", then get pissed off if they think your offer is too low. Put a bloody rough guide in if you're that sensitive.
  19. JZX100 Chaser - RPF1 Goodness!

    If you get one of those harnesses and a wiring diagram for your head unit I'm happy to help where I can, though could probably give it a crack without a diagram.
  20. JZX100 Chaser - RPF1 Goodness!

    Mine didn't do that with either the factory head unit nor the aftermarket one = no need to replace. I do have to turn it louder as I accelerate though, due to road noise and exhaust note.... Duh. Lots of people also complained about getting feedback with an aftermarket head unit due to the way the h/u and speakers are grounded, didn't get that either.
  21. Where to buy tools down South?

    Speaking of 1/4 drive ratchets, what's a good brand to go with?I'm sick of my sidchrome one slipping.
  22. JZX100 Chaser - RPF1 Goodness!

    Yeah it should be very straight forward depending on what head unit you use. I put in a 2-din Pioneer DVD unit and the only thing I couldn't work out was the reverse gear signal to get movies playing, but I'll fiddle with it later if it annoys me. The harness has an RCA for each speaker (so as long as your head unit has those inputs it stays very simple).
  23. JZX100 Chaser - RPF1 Goodness!

    Chaser looks bloody clean! And for the guy asking about the headunit install, I bought a Metra 70-8112 harness for $12, plugged straight in to the Toyota loom, had to put bullet joiners on 4 other wires, took half an hour. Easiest install I've ever done, however that's retaining the factory amp, which I saw no need to replace.
