On the drive home from work yesterday behind this RS3.. there was a crash just ahead of us and there was a new model TT parked on the side of the road with hazards on (undamaged from the looks of it).

Drive behind this jap import GTI, I like the colour coded rear valance. This is standard on ED30's right?
Yeah 30ed is completely colour coded although the rear bumper is slightly different.

Must be a different one because we both park our cars on opposite carparks on Boulcott St and live in the Hutt Valley  :laugh:

Spotted a very cleanly stanced Polo on Symonds today. Not sure if driver is on VASK but if you are, holla.

I was anticipating the Bentley being parked casually across two disabled spaces!  ;)

That would be more likely for a RR, the Bentley is for a slightly different market

Not VAG content but I was driving behind this. So tough.
Shelby LHD GT-500. Not in the best condition but sounded awesome.

at Tristram right now!  talked to one of the salemen, EMD brought in two, hoping to sell them between $17 & 18k, but they ended up at over $22k so it's not happening for now, so Tristram have them both, one red, one white, alloys, heated leather seats, 1 litre 5 speed manual, apparently drive really well, about the size of a Suzuki Swift, but look less like a clog

Tristram also had an R-line Polo and a couple of new Beetles, which are apparently selling quite well

so if you want an UP!, get in quick

Why on earth would they have heated leather seats and alloys?, obviously not interested in selling these in NZ.
Bottom of the line car, specced right out of it's market.
