Is that Sonic Yellow? I remember Sonic Yellow being on the STI ver. VI, but it might have had more green in it.

A wagon nerely tempted me. A black 2005 V6 manual wagon in Ti trim turned up on Trademe (NZs eBay and graigslist and Bat all rolled in to one) about 3 hours from me. The red sedan won me over, and although I may have to hand in my jalop card for admitting this, I reckon the sedan looks better. One of the only Read more

Watched the arrival and flybys from the office. We have a great view of the Waitemata. Made for an exciting coffee break.

I’ve missed some things since I’ve been away. Whats the “hour rule”? and is the “SR20 rule” still a thing?

Nice car. My flatmate has the JDM Altezza Gita. Can't say no to a wagon with a 2J.

I was here before Kinja, and I’ll be here to dance on its glitch-riddled grave. Thanks. Might become a regular again, but I’m busier these days, so who knows?

My research suggests that the Busso is fairly robust, and the manual ‘box is solid. The horror stories tended to come from pre-facelift (and therefore pre-recall) 4cyl cars with the Selespeed, or from places where they salt the roads in winter (rusty floorpans are a killer). Down here in NZ that isn’t an issue. I’m Read more

Not Q4 ( Could you get those as a sedan?), but yes, the 2.5 24V. It sings!

Thank you! Yeah, full service history (90% with Alfa specialists), including timing belt done 10,000km ago. Bought off a young bloke who’s old man had two (2!) 156 GTAs in the garage. I’m confident she’s been looked after.

The world’s best sandwich shop, All’Antico Vinaio in Florence (not hyperbole, look it up. My wife added Florence to our last Europe trip itinerary just so she could share this place with me), has a sign on the wall, in English, that simply says “pesto is not a sandwich filling”.

Reminds me of the Maybach Exelero, another one-off pre-GFC car nerd thirst trap. Love it, but mostly because it reminded me of the Anton Furst Batmobile (that’s the Keaton/Burton one, for all the normal people who don’t obsess over Batmobiles).

Always “Concorde”. Not “a Concorde”, or “the Concorde”. Just “Concorde”.

Not sure about power off the top of my head, but yeah, it was just for us and our odd tax system that meant 2 litre and below got some sort of credit or lower rego costs or something. For that reason we were the only country outside of Italy that you could get a Ferrari 208 (a 308 with some sort of lawnmower engine Read more

I’m a Kiwi, and we have been getting ex JDM cars here since the early 90s. My former step-dad imported them when I was a kid in the mid 90s (still does), so we got all sorts of weird JDM stuff (for example my mother was daily driving an S-cargo for a couple of weeks, during which time we also had both a Nissan Gloria Read more

As the owner of a red BMW (E30) and a wagon (Accord Euro CU2), I fully approve of your car choice. #wagonlyfe

I’m out. As my alias suggests I’ve been a Ferrari nerd/fanboy since I was a kid, but part of that was to do with their commitment to only making sports cars, GTs and supercars. Read more

Yup, beat you to it by roughly 5 years. Kinja game is on point!
