Post by: the phantom on January 02, 2011, 11:26:45 am
Viper softop, Sunbeam Tiger (Alpine with a Ford 289), a fifties Mopar wagon and a Ford Twin Spinner cabriolet in Matakana yesterday,

plus a white Golf R on Akoranga Dr last week, so subtle I didn't realise what it was until I was passed it, the R badge could have been GT from a distance

LOL, I'm a real Nanna on a mountain bike so there is a decent trail, quite a bit of boardwalk and metalled paths, not challenging at all and kid friendly, a bit of singletrack on grass and rollercoaster at the eastern end

see: http://cyclingauckland.co.nz/front/2010/11/hidden-treasure-tuff-crater-reserve/ (http://cyclingauckland.co.nz/front/2010/11/hidden-treasure-tuff-crater-reserve/), it's my back yard and we've been riding it for several years, go down Exmouth Rd and head left on the grass, it starts at the little bridge, and you can come out at St Peters St or continue on to the Warehouse Way

I like that pic - there's an Auburn Roadster there and 4 people are looking at a Combi camper? Plus that one guy trying to convince the fella with the camera that the Roadster, being an American car, is only designed to turn left.  :laugh:

Ahhh possibly the famous red 3 door Polo GTI. As far as I am aware it was an evaluation car pre release of the NZ spec cars. Have seen it a few times in Newmarket. I also saw a white 3 door 9N polo GTI at a wholesaler in Penrose a few months back but has now disappeared from the yard. I assume a few more 3 doors will start trickling in from Japan soon as well as they're getting to that replacement age in Japan.

I was in Remmers once and an Enzo drove out of Victoria Ave into Remmers Rd, they look much better in real life than in the photos, surprisingly so

edit, this was six or seven years ago and it was all red

Many years ago I went out with a girl who's Dad owned a whole bunch of Ferrari's. He has since purchased an Enzo, they used to live on Victoria Ave.
I heard once that he wrote off or came very close to writing off a yellow Ferrari that he had at Puke.
I love my Fiance but man when I look back it would have been very cool to continue that relationship a little longer! :laugh:

His Enzo was the one on display across the road from CCS maybe 4 or 5 years ago.
Pretty amazing in real life.

This is odd then as the only NZ New Enzo is owned by a gentleman called Jeremy, a larger than life POME who's been in the country for about 3 years....
Unless we are talking Lionel Rogers who owned it beforehand?

The other Enzo that comes to NZ sometimes is the only Enzo in the world with a factory yellow roof/Red body belonging to the owner of LinFox.

Who is the owner of Navman?

I went to uni with the son of the guy you mention, karts. Yes he has a large collection including a red enzo. He wrote of a ferrari at puke, I think a testarossa. He isn't the founder of Navman but another well known NZ company.

His son used a Hummer H2 for the Undie 500 one year, which sustained expensive panel damage!

There is also a black enzo. Saw it a couple of times on the shore a few years ago.
Title: Re: The Official SPOTTED Thread 2011
Post by: KARTS on January 22, 2011, 12:20:50 pm
Yeah it was Lionel Rogers, I'm pretty sure he was a founding investor in Navman. As you can imagine
A guy with that much success has his fingers in a lot of pies. I remember his daughter Kate telling me he owned a plastics company also. You know all the geometry stuff from school, rulers and such that have a little bull stamped on them like a Taurus sign, that's his company too. Anyway this was almost 15 years ago so I'm a bit blurry. I think the son is called Harry, that right Deedub? I've seen the Hummer a few times, horrible thing. Anyway they are nice people with a Dad that loves his cars.

Is the rear spoiler on a switch or is it speed activated as Jake thought that was awesome when it popped up. 8)

When they first came out in the UK the spoiler was activated a 75mph ( for the autobahns) so if a copper saw you with the spoiler up he knew you were speeding

Haha I just put that up and down for a laugh, there's a switch on the dash to put it up/down manually. Yeah the UK ones come up at 80km/h from factory I think and kiwi ones come up at 120km/h. I can't notice the difference but apparently volkswagen can!

Was a feature in the UK Autocar some months back....one disallusioned owner had traded his car after 4 months of ownership and was a bit peeved after buying it based on on the Autocar  original writeup.
Also, apparently pays to have a direct line to the spare parts dept as evidently they are far from bulletproof.
However, I daresay that another year or two will have to elapse before a real assesment can be made.
Also with them, there is a bit of a nostalgic euphoria which can cloud initial opinions but leaves permanent mind set among the 'believers'.
I'm not disputing that they are a pretty advanced piece of engineering...but so too was the Mini Metro when it was introduced and was manufactured in the most technically advanced plant in Europe at the time and see how history has treated them

Very tidy VR6 parked alongside the Auckland Airport motorway earlier this week. No sign of the driver.

Caught up with 'Logan', an S4 owner who's tired of 'some guy' always leaving VASK cards on his windscreen. Said he was quite into his VW/Audi a while back but since he got the S4, not so much. I think the gorgeous blonde he was with had more to do with it. I think she'd be a worthy distraction from cars.



On the GTR issue, the service interval is 6k and from accounts I've heard and read they're quite comprehensive (read not cheap). Nissan are quite emphatic about aftermarket tweaks voiding warranty, including the switching off of the 'traction control'. The latter seems to highlight weaknesses in the tranny. Sure it quick and cool and I'd like to have one, but it'll never beat a Porsche in the long run, they've built way too much technology into it for it not to have problems. Hey look at who their business partners are.

I suspect itmay not be turning the traction control off but rather the launch control on. I was told that the cars log the number of launch control starts they do  and the story went that after "X" number of full launch control starts the warranty was void on drivline components. This didnt come from an NZ source so it may be different here

Na no rego, I was in an awkward position. Only reason I thought it may have been a GTI was there was some letters after the Jetta but I wasn't anywhere near enough to see clearly. But of course they didn't make a GTI Jetta. Had black plates and definitely wasn't a mk2. Now I'll be on the lookout for it every day! I was heading north on the Motorway getting off at Takapuna.

Later releases of the Mk1 in South Africa did come with round headlights, utilising the grille from the Mk1 Golf. These were badged "Fox" and were sold after the Mk2 Jetta was released.

You're correct on the GTi bit, the Jetta version was badged GLi. I loved mine.

Here's some piccys I took at Shelby American, since they are only 20 min north of Las Vegas its worth while taking a peek while you are there.
They run a free tour every day at 10.30, unfortunately pictures of the factory / workshop were not allowed but one shop is where they make the original style Cobra and the other is the performance Mustang shop.
The Mustang shop had about 30 hoists in it all full of brand new customer cars, quite impressive.

busy morning spotting!

went out to Bucklands Beach to pick up my new headlights from Leon, who didn't know about VASK and is going to investigate, he has a reflex silver MK4 V64M that he is working on, badgeless grille, lower bonnet etc, and a same colour 98 Polo, wants to investigate some upgrades to the Golf so VASK will be useful for him

on the way there and back:

>  a ropey fibreglass buggy body only on a trailer towed by a Range Rover on Sunnybrae Rd (I think)
>  a Bentley Continental GT (silver) on the Southern M'way
>  Platinum's buggy at Platinum when picking up a foglight switch
>  a Ferrari 458 Italia in Remuera,
>  a VW Phaeton backing into a park also in Remmers
>  a black Golf R in Newmarket
>  a white Golf R in Takapuna (and a while ago I said you don't see many around!)
>  a red buggy scooting up Archer Rd when back on the Shore

whew!  time for a lie down!  too much excitement   :laugh:

Weird cos it also had smoked tail lights and a sunroof, but even more weird is that it also had a number plate beginning with EQC... just like mine

The last ones from indoors at Shelby, the first one is a stock Mustang as Shelby get them from Ford with the "enhanced" version next to it.
Next one is of 2 heavily modified Super snakes, 750hp with factory warranty  :laugh:, red car is over 800hp with no warranty  :P
Pic 3/4 are some of Carol Shelby's personal collection of Mustangs & Cobra's and a customer car in the carpark.

Gotta love going to an I.T course in Newmarket on Broadway. Guaranteed to drool over some nice machinery during the day, so far have seen a few Porsches (including a GT2 parked up), seen a Ferrari F430, Lamborghini Gallardo.

The volume of Porsches is weird to me though, a rarity in West Auckland and a semi-rarity in Newmarket.

He said he was staggered how quick it was. Without any official testing he and his business partner rate the Golf a quicker performer than his partners 535i. If the Cayenne wasn't such a great family car, he'd consider trading.

Have been wondering about this, I'd love to have the full power from the go in the Gallardo. Not some tuned down bs, but then again I understand they don't want some noob jumping behind the wheel and unleashing all the power into the first wall available.

Saw a Black Amarok this morning around Mt Wellington, had the number 13 on the rear window?  The back looked really high and out of proportion, the gap between the wheels and the wheel arch.

Apparently they are the #2 4x4 Pickup in AU already.

I saw that twice when I was in Wellington a while back, looks awesome!

A shame he was only putting around town in it...

Spotted that around the water front this morning too, also a bit further down the road I spotted a cream beetle, boned out on some red rims with white walls, we shared a wave - anyone know it?

And also spotted, like half a dozen cop cars cruising around the water front and hiding between the parked cars with their lasers..!

Alas, they are asking too much $$ for an exchange, so most likely a no go.
Just typical; wait 3 years for a white one, and 6 weeks after giving up and getting a black one..... a white one pops up! Damm!

On the flip side, it goes much quicker than my 'carbon chocked, no airbox flap' black one, so looking  to getting that back all fixed up and de-coked on monday.
PS. Mich PS2 are WAY WAY better than Toyos!!

Me, driving my black RS4!
After 2 weeks of loan cars, i finally have it back.

Why so long?
Just over 1 week for the speed sensor to arrive from overseas that originally immobilised the car, and another 4 days to fix the lack of high rev performance with the stuck airbox flap, and the big job for them to do a full manifold clean to de-coke it.

And the outcome?
Only a short drive back from the dealership, but initial indications are way more power up top.
I plan to re-dyno ASAP at Torque.
Will post the results once done.

1906 Darracq Grand Prix Racer 2 seater GP type:
The only known survivor of the first French Grand Prix. Driven by Louis Wagner it won the 1906 Vanderbilt Cup at Long Island and was the first car ever to be given the Checkered Flag for winning a race. In 1911 it was purchased by Malcom Campbell and was raced at Brooklands until 1914. It was the first car he named ''Blue Bird''. It then passed to G. Minchin who had it fitted with a 4 seat tourer body, 4 sp gearbox and detatchable wheels, and electric start.

that Phillip Island clip is a gem, jaw dropping literally, she was definitely working it I thought the first excursion off road was because of the cheeky Lotus taking the line into the corner, but the second was definitely brake lockup because she was pushing it

it's also wonderful because of the other cars on the track, Maser 250, Porsche 908, lightweight E-type, Bugattis all with exhaust notes recorded as they passed

just went for a passengers trip in a mates new V10 RS6 (upgraded his S2)

my thoughts were

 - very very very nice new refined car
 - sounded amazing
 - went quick but didn't make a song or dance about it.

Thats a big upgrade step!

A bit numb i'm told, but a rocket ship, and very tunable.

he jumped from a 5 series bmw (I think), to a HSV GTS, then S5, then this.

and all within a couple of years.  he thinks he's come to the end of the itch.  (for now.  :P  )

it'll be hard to beat this one...(especially as Audi seem to be changing direction and going away from controllable grunt)

too be honest those parks outside our house are really thin.  I feel really sorry for people who have to park there.

So the one on the end (the yellow pad he's just parked on is there for our driveway) is the best and you just park on the outside of it if you don't want winners to door ding your car.

basically they couldn't squeeze in another tiny park on the end of those ones.  If they did the vehicles arse would be hanging out on an angle to make it a bitch for us to get in and out of our drive.

luckily the owner of our house before us nagged the council for the lines.

they are about 90% effective

Went and had a look at a new Amarok this morning, must say the interior fit out looks cheap!
Not at all what I expected from VW, perhaps due to the fact that its supposed to be a commercial vehicle? but then at 66K not exactly what I'd call value for money.
Solid rear axle, something I'd expect from an American car not from a modern VW. Over all very dissapointing  :(

It starts at $43k for the basic RWD version, the top spec 4WD Highline is $61.5k without options - almost exactly the same as the equivalent Hilux models.

When the clutch is out (not engaged) there's a narly as ticking sound, put the clutch in and it goes away. When you're at the lights, leaving the clutch in solves it, but it also stalls randomly (twice between Mt Albert and CBD). Hmmmmm... Now I'm about to take on the harbour bridge, wish me luck.

Saw this thing at CCS last week:

Apparently it was $400k when new!
600hp, and full wide body kit.
It looked less ~try hard in person, and actually looked very nice.

They told me they had traded it and would put it back on the lot at ~$150k, but suddenly its back on TM at the higher price.

Tap the throttle before you let the clutch out when starting off. It's something to do with emissions. Tapping the throttle let's the car know your wanting to go.

That's interesting, didn't know that but didn't have a problem on takeoff either, its the changing gears that's horrible - almost like a crunch through the clutch. Hard to explain.

heaps more poke than the tiny k03, genuine k04 is only $800-1k landed for 240bhp remapped etc

"Eco Parking" bay in a Tournament carpark building the city. Right near the lifts, where you'd expect a 'handicap' or 'pram' bay they had an Eco Bay, reserved for "Hybrids or Electric Cars Only"!!! One might argue, there's a handicap on it's own.

I'll be there next week. I'm taking a picture to send to Clarkson!

I don't know. I never really cared though, his car not mine - I was never going to buy it especially after that! If I was in the market for an S3 I certainly wouldn't buy one that had been driven on the beach  :-X

It's funny i used to get comments about my totally stock Cq.  At the gas station one of the mechanics said "that's a great looking car" and even on the road, stopped at some lights, "nice car man". 

I'm not sure if they were just yankin my chain or what cos it was standard as anything.  factory height, factory tints, factory 20 year old paint, factory wheels, covered in grime...  strange ???

I first spotted this outside Nosh in Greenlane about 3 weeks back, I saw on Friday it was still there.

Geniuses from council have been attaching multiple tickets for no WOF, no rego and separate days. I can understand once, but 3 times!?! $1200 worth when I checked 3 weeks back. Why not just impund the thing and be done with?

Saw Black Polo GTI 9n3 last night about 8:50pm on ramp from spagetthi junction to North Shore way - tail gated over took me for no reason - and sped to harbour bridge at 100km/h or higher.

Had another badge on right. ? MTM, didn't look lowered - appeared standard.

Take it easy mate - if you want to race - come to Meremere. Dont' be an idiot on the road, I had absolutely no intention to race you. You were doing excess of 30km/h on temporary 70km/h area.

I thought the white GTX was a UK import?

There were many carbed Jettas sold here, I think the 16Vs were just evaluation cars... not officially imported and sold here.

My car's a right state - hasn't been washed for about 6 weeks!

As for spotting - there was a Rover 3500 V8 Vanden Plas parked on our street the other day. They must be pretty rare these days.

Well I have a green golf the the Police would have a field day on, and my buddy is a cop... He got sent out looking for a green golf in Takapuna (where I live) so gave me a buzz to find out if it was me that he was looking for! Soon as he told me it was a VR6 I had a sigh of relief and thought I may just give a heads up here in case it was a vasker. Not sure why they were looking for him though.

No, that's about 80% open road driving. This tank has been fairly normal speeds etc, but with just reasonable attention to throttle application, smooth driving etc. If I can get close to my 750km goal this time I'll have a tilt at a full on economy drive mission on my next tank. It's just to get that extra 10% economy takes 50% more concentration and it starts being pretty hard work.

In my 1.8T I'm always above 800km on the 60Lts tank (think it's 60 or 62), to be honest is 90% open road, legal speeds (105-110 speedo).

Would be around 6.7 and 7 every 100km.

can't say I did see it.  how's the aston martin thing going?  I saw a black one outside Audi this morning on the lot.  looked pretty sweet!

actually, with the power of the inter webs, I'd say it's this

Dark Grey (Dolphin?) RS4 - Willis St. Wellington this morning.  Personalised plate saying RS IV - didn't look like a VASKer tho.  Passenger door wasn't closed properly either.  Frickin lovely sound they make mind you!  That and the fat guards and shiny wheels... *drool*

Makes me laugh looking at the Armstrong website... $300k for an R8? you're taking the pi$$!  They ain't worth that anywhere else in the world (except maybe SNG)

From Wikipedia

Kim Schmitz (born January 21, 1974), also known as Kimble and Kim Dotcom, is a German computer criminal and businessman who has generated much publicity and was convicted of credit card fraud, computer fraud, insider trading, and embezzlement. Schmitz is also one of the leaders of the website Megaupload.

He has some interesting plans for NZ ventures, not computer related.

"His residency was granted under a "high-investment" immigration category after investing NZ$10 million ($8.3 million) in government bonds and making a large donation to a fund for earthquake-stricken Christchurch.
Dotcom said he had been convicted for "hacking" under juvenile law and for insider trading because of ignorance about a share-trading law more than 10 years ago and both convictions were wiped under Germany's clean-slate law.
He was arrested in Bangkok in January 2002 and deported to Germany, where he was sentenced to a probationary sentence of one-year and eight months, and a fine of 100,000 euros ($136,540). He also pleaded guilty to embezzlement in November 2003 and received a two-year probation sentence.
Dotcom told the Herald his crimes were "victimless" and committed from his home computer"

"His residency was granted under a "high-investment" immigration category after investing NZ$10 million ($8.3 million) in government bonds and making a large donation to a fund for earthquake-stricken Christchurch.
Dotcom said he had been convicted for "hacking" under juvenile law and for insider trading because of ignorance about a share-trading law more than 10 years ago and both convictions were wiped under Germany's clean-slate law.
He was arrested in Bangkok in January 2002 and deported to Germany, where he was sentenced to a probationary sentence of one-year and eight months, and a fine of 100,000 euros ($136,540). He also pleaded guilty to embezzlement in November 2003 and received a two-year probation sentence.
Dotcom told the Herald his crimes were "victimless" and committed from his home computer"

His issues don;t stop there:

What's that new law that's just come into force....something about 3 strikes and $15k? This guy has conned his way for years doing exactly that.

"For years now, executives at the major film studios and television networks have quietly complained that Megaupload is making a fortune off of their work by selling subscriptions to his locker services without paying them a dime. Megaupload denies the accusations, but in Hollywood many fear that the service is a far bigger threat to their business than the popular and controversial file-sharing service, The Pirate Bay."

driving in bus lanes in operating hours is risky, it's not unknown for people to make right turns at intersections  or into driveways and hit illegal users (or people jumping into those lanes right on the end of the posted time), this is because the drivers turning are looking for buses that are clearly visible above queued cars and miss an approaching car, be warned!

I had a minor head-on in such a situation last year.

I was in the 'bus lane', but as it was some 7 hours before its operational period, I was in the right. But you'd never say so the way some of the parents who were dropping their kids of were carrying on though.

Curiously several of them were parked curbside, when challenged on this "we're just dropping the children off!" was the response. I then showed them the bus lane signage.

I know someone who has been on his personal staff, I have no respect for dot com. His history is full of deceit, fraud and dishonesty (a simple google will clarify this). We don't need more of those in this country. He can have his dirty money and take it with him. Happy to keep his cars though.

Just saw an AWESOME Mk3 down on Customs St turning into Anzac. Probably one of the coolest Mk3's I have ever seen down under and I have never even seen it before!?

It was that Mk3 Violet colour, looked to have a popped up sunroof, slammed with some sweet forward rake on some unidentified wheels. Looked like possibly some old school SSR or BBS wheels, or some old school JDM wheels. Gold centers with polished lips, huge dish, like 2-3" atleast. Looked to potentially be 3 piece. Stanced.

Anyone know it?? Almost fell off my bike trying to look back at it as I past

Had to laugh at this spotting today, coming off the new North Western Motorway to North Shore, some round about areas etc. I see a grey 90's VW Polo screaming its nuts off through a roundabout and up the on ramp, then behind it a grey Toureg ripping up after it.

Just looked funny seeing a little Polo chased by a big Toureg which was certainly moving. Must've been having a bit of fun.

I went after it to watch it on the back roads and listen to that awesome wail, hope he didn't think I was trying to race him as that wasn't a chance in hell. Awesome car, good to see someone having fun in one.

the JIZIM urquattro on Wairau Rd this afternoon, looks nice

what is it about Falcons that makes their drivers angry?  I was nearly rear ended by one in Titirangi this avo, he then follows me along Titirangi Rd until it gets a bit wider and roars past, only to stop at a queue at traffic signals, he was closely followed by a Falcon panel van, it was a nice afternoon and I was doing 50-55, so that might answer my question

Quite a bit of VAG-ina spoting yesterday.

The Yellow early model S3 again, this time promoting VASK to her fullest with a sticker in each rear window
In Cambridge I parked next to a Silver S3 while frequenting the Dirty Bird
while turning into the Dirty Bird had someone in a blue MK4 GTI decide to haul out of a junction and almost up my arse, good one! Had the beautiful addition of gauges down the A pillar and lowered on some BBS something or others!

Yep the same one on the North Western today. He didn't get far and I watched him pull off the same off ramp as me, briefly touch the brakes at the roundabout turn left and floored it again right through a 30k area.

 ;D Love that ute one with the dog, thats a great way to let the dog enjoy itself. I'd probably put some sort of vent in for airflow, unless it gets alright air flow inside.

Hope someone reported the camera van? Such a dick thing to do. And you'd be surprised how little time it takes before the car heats up too much for the dog. They don't respond well to heat, I try to just leave mine at home period if I have to stop somewhere they can't go. Or else I keep it to a 5 minute maximum with the windows cracked.

 Yea its good they are checking that sort of stuff, as whilst that lady mite not have been doing a bad thing many do.
 I remember I didn't know BB had got into a car once and closed the door and went inside to give the Mrs a seeing to, and after we both went wheres BB? It was a super hot day and I recon 20 more mins and she would have been done.
 Lucky I was going hammer and tongs with the lil lady or it could have been a sad day.
 I now have two dogs so I can leave little Ricky at home with his new buddy Ernie.

Ducati 900SS in Taranaki St yesterday, why don't modern bikes have drama like that?

really nice r36 Passat on the southern today,

new Passat diesel also on the southern, due to NZTA's "wise" decision to close the northbound clipons, we were in stop/start traffic for 40 minutes from E-P highway to the bridge, heard the Passat startup using its stop/start facility, cool
