Those do look nice. Forgot about Hyper and thier ehhel choices. Not sure about buying new though as I live in the country and the wheels take a beating.

Looks alright considering I haven't washed it since I bought it.

Looks like the wheels I was after are already sold. Kind of annoying that they list vehicles with all parts available when reality its already been partially stripped. Pic of wheels attached.

SHould be able to find something at Hyper

These here look similar.

Some of the more modern 5 split spokes look nice too.

didn't see any foglights on except for maybe a couple of long haul trucks but their lights would have been too far above the ground to be of any use.

Also - the quattro thing was a joke. I had my daughter in the car and wouldn't put her at risk :)

OK, I bit  8) - but you'd be surprised how many people think AWD or 4WD means they won't skid and can ignore dodgy surface conditions - just like I know people who think ABS means they will stop as well in the dry as in the wet.

I'm not so much complaining about bad drivers as saying that they just had no clue how to handle the conditions. Because the conditions were so rare that they haven't been trained.

Visibility was fine by the way, and in 13 years here in New Zealand I've never experienced conditions that warranted use of fog lights.

It was the second post that mentioned the fog.

Place that seems to get the worst, and most frequent, heavy fog, from my experience, is along the Waikato - it can be very bad some nights. I've come across visability almost as bad in quite a few other areas, though - and you may also need them in the torrential rain that sometimes hits, especially as so many fools travel way too fast.

I loathe automatics - give me a manual any time - especially in trafic as that is when you really have more control.
