What appeared to be a Mk.V Jetta R32 in metallic grey in Remuera. An R32 nose, with R and Jetta badging on rear.

Also the following two. The first was quietly obeying the 40k speed limit on Ponsonby Rd. While the Volvo....well it's doubtful that it's a Baptist pastor that owns it, unless he has a 'wicked' sense of humour:

That Jetta is probably a 2.0T engine with just 'R' badging. Japanese versions with 2.0T all come with chrome nose.

Definitely sounded like a V6 though. I had initially thought it was a Passat R36, but then caught the rear Jetta badge.

The Mk5 Jetta never had a VR6, its most powerful engine was the 2.0T.

The Jetta you saw was probably just one of the last R-line kitted Jettas sold in NZ.

Agreed, I like 3 door cars with kids - they work well compared to the equivalent sized 5 door models. You can swing the seat forward, hop in and face the child while you buckle them in, rather than have to lean over them from the side.

Great morning for AMG Mercs, first spotted a SL55 AMG coupe, followed by a C63 AMG sedan, and finally a C63 AMG estate. All had a healthy V8 burble and all at the bottom of Albert St.

The Police out driving Kim Dotcoms cars? ;)

Unfortunately none of the NZ 250 GTO's are "real" ones!  I am aware of two and they are both very good replicas built entirely with Ferrari parts - but not real GTO's. 

A real GTO would cost around NZD40 million.  The last sale of one (I understand) was purchased by Chris Evans in the UK and he paid GBP20 million!!!

I thought some woodwrap to make the wagon look like woody might fun, changed my mind



Speaking of which, I caught the tail end of TG USA the other night and the 'woody' was part of the discussion, with them leaving the last of the Buick woody's parked outside GM headquarters and asking please start making them again. What I found most curious was what their (TG team) 'modern' interpretation might look like, very suspiciously like the current Holden wagons. It left me feeling queasy.

Less than legal S8 heading down Abbotts Way from Ladies Mile in Remuera.


Completely blacked out, there was barely 50mm of clearance. He appeared to slow (wobbling) down to 20kph before reaching the bottom of the hill, I guess to prevent bottoming out. I had just passed 2 different Mr. Plods who had pulled people up and wondered I would he/she be next.....

Just doesn't seem right.

i saw a red rs4 b7 avant on ori parade last weekend, looked sweet!

i never really liked the red (stupid reason, but because it made the red in the rs4 badge a bit camo!) - but seeing this thing in the flesh, man it was nice

have seen a gunmetal avant b7 driving in and out of the eastern burbs as well albacol.  older guy driving it - very nice

and also a black b5 rs4 heading towards the airport as i headed away.

I saw it about ~2.00pm.

Driver was 30-ish.

So unless the quick drive back to Whanganui added 10+ yrs, probably a different car.

Wish my phone camera would start up faster, miss so many shots like the RS3 (also seen in red and black around PN) and a brand new 2012 Lexus GS250 go through a red light.

Thanks man, yes the whole front end is stock aside from some faux carbon wrap on the bumper extension for tow hook cover. though after seeing The Poon mobile with a Cupra front lip I'm thinking Cupra lip on the Lupo could work.

I had a roadster back in the day when they were current, should have never sold it.
Beautifully balanced handling - quite different to the Lotus Elan that followed but altho lacking the performance and outright cornering ability was probably a better car for normal use.
Morgan 4/4 is another classic with nicely balanced handling and nothing like the road tests would have you believe

Gave me goosebumps and a  40 year flashback to a car show my Dad took me to in Durban. I recall the internal struggle I had over which was my favourite car the the Miura or the newly launched Mach1! I settled for Matchbox models of both.

Wishful thinking.

When I pulled into the central PO one cop was re-attaching the rear license plate - it was askew ricer style.

By the time I picked up my mail all the occupants were out and the cops were making a thorough search of the car.

All those wheels lined up along the fence , cheap wheels and tyres bro ?

The main reason 3 doors are 'not popular' in NZ is because the importers have rarely offered them when there was an alternative 4 door  available thus creating their own statistics to prove the point.
My brother worked for a major importer a number of years ago and their logic in picking what they imported was farcical, fortunately they are out of the game now but the philosophy seems to linger on

should have added, if it was, I got it for the night the day before (just dropped it off on Tuesday)

my car was in getting it's 120k cambelt \ water pump done

wife likes the B7 and I found it's got 60mm of leg room more in the rear seats!

def a people mover!  :P

so we're 'kinda' keeping an eye out for a daytona grey, sunroof, wagon...

having said all of this, went with a mate to BMW (he was getting a cooper s) and wandered around.  didn't really know how to compare apples with apples but there were some nice rides for not as much as I thought they'd be

and a 2012 matte black M3 for 160k (and a stocky little M1 or 1M or what they call it :P)

  I am and I'm not

basically can't make up my mind and this car popped up on the radar.   (really low k's = 20 and pretty cheap for price for those k's)

one day its a rs6 , one day its a 4, other days its a land rover... and even some days its a hybrid'ie \ prius thing....

if anyone is interested in it, flick me a PM before the weekend is up - he needs to know Mon \ Tues before flicking it to a dealer

I'm pretty sure I saw that same Reliant today just off Gt Nth Road.

I don't mind it. 

well iI'm probably being a bit precious as I know the guy and he's a really really really nice guy and loves cars.  and has a bit of cash so thought he'd treat himself. 

he's been driving the same cars for yeeears (range rover for wife and an old xjs le mans edition as his)

it's funny cause he's reaaaally understated.  too look at him (and to talk to him) you wouldn't think he was a massive deal.

but now this car kinda makes him stick out...

maybe it's his midlife ferrari.  :P

Isnt 9 and 3/4's a hommage to Harry Potter?

it's possible that the guys marking the drive out did it on purpose knowing that we'd get them to respray a portion of it and they'd get to put the 3/4 in!

it's also more probable they just were munters, sprayed out 70% of the drive and figured out they got it all wrong and  they had to shimmy a few lines around!

harry potter sounds better though :D

Not sure if you were being sarcastic, but hard parking is basically just a gathering and showing off cars = park and show off.

Got talking to the guy who's a bit of an engineer and he designed and made the wheel 'insert' himself using a precision cutter to cut a mirror so that it sits in the lip of the rim. It is then attached by bolts which go through the spokes in the original wheel..
Cever and unique.

To be honest, it was a quiet refined cabin to be in, even when getting a thrashing (as you'd expect from 270k!). It was only when it left that I truly heard it, and that noise is definitely not coming from the stereo!

Positive, you can't still hear the stereo from 500 metres away :P

I also wonder if that system works only when the stereo is on, as there really was no engine noise in the cabin...

And yeah Nik I remember there was an E39 round our way a few years back. Amazing noise, but it's just not the same. The turbos make a sound I can't quite describe. Very angry anyway!

Title: Re: The Official SPOTTED Thread 2012
Post by: rambo_005 on September 03, 2012, 10:54:51 pm
I believe Audi NZ dropped the 3 door A1 when the 5 door A1 Sportback arrived, just like they did with both versions of the A3 when they launched. I wonder if the new A3 3 door will make an appearance in NZ?

TFSI changed to TSI for VW, Skoda and SEAT. Audi maintained TFSI.

As you may already know, TSI and TFSI represents any forced induction direct injection petrol engine. The form of forced induction is irrelevant, it could be turbocharged, supercharged, or both.

In the case of the B8 Audi S4, it is badged a 3.0T (for TFSI) and is a supercharged direct injection V6.

Also saw this Bug. I got permission to take snap and post it from a very proud owner . He bought it from Alan at Platinum, where he says it gets serviced regularly. Interior is immaculate. The bodywork, including a respray, is on the cards. Personally I like it like it is.

Greetings from LA! I was wandering down a suburban street in west Hollywood when I heard a car driving up the road from behind us. 'That's a fast car, ' I said without looking back. It cruised past us and we spotted it parked around the corner. Nice!:

Ferrari FF in the staff carpark.

I drove this car a couple of times in the last 2 days.

It was amazing how easy it is to drive around town.  These modern "big" Ferrari's are really luxury cars now and are so easy.

The 458 however is still my pick (not as easy around town in my experience) as it is a proper supercar and on the track (from what I have read and been told) there is very little that can match it - if anything.

Found this near East Tamaki yesterday. Presently powered by a Jag sourced 5.3 V12, however the owner has just taken delivery of two Walkinshaw 6.0 units, one of which will go into this.

The red windshield frame that can be seen on the right, is from a Mazda MX5. It's attached to another monstrosity in the making, a replica of an AC model that only ever appeared in 'artists impressions'. One I can't say I've ever seen or been able to find thusfar. It'll get the other Walkinshaw.

In his shed he has a monster V8 trike, with 4m long forks!

Also spotted in Manhattan. Couldn't quite figure out what it was as it's been modified, including the badges. It has an sline badge on the side so I'm assuming a straight TT? It was a DSG. Big brake kit, carbon fibre wing and mirrors, BBS wheels and lowered etc.

BMW M3 e46 blue with German plates DWD 382 - if you know the driver, please let him know to drive properly on public road sharing with others. damning wanker.

White MK5 GTI plate 'EPY__' getting off Tristram onramp yesterday - driving pretty enthusiastically weaving in and out of multiple lanes. Lovely car with bumper colour coding and black wheels - but you don't need to drive like a dick. The car looks good as it is - don't ruin the image.

I probably drove enthusiatically from time to time, but that beemer was especially dangerous to all others on the road.

BMW M3 e46 blue with German plates DWD 382 - if you know the driver, please let him know to drive properly on public road sharing with others. damning wanker.

White MK5 GTI plate 'EPY__' getting off Tristram onramp yesterday - driving pretty enthusiastically weaving in and out of multiple lanes. Lovely car with bumper colour coding and black wheels - but you don't need to drive like a dick. The car looks good as it is - don't ruin the image.

I probably drove enthusiatically from time to time, but that beemer was especially dangerous to all others on the road.

Some good feedback there! Hey does that mk5 have APR stickers on it- cos that guy nearly t boned me in Parnell a few weeks ago!

I am 99% sure that today I saw a new, black B8 RS4 driving down Queen Street. It certainly looked much beefier than the B8 S4 - had the RS4 wheels, front grille looked evil, lights were definitely different, general lines more aggressive. I didn't think that there were any in NZ yet????

It might have been, I was a little way away, but the body just looked a lot stockier. If it was the facelift S4...then that signals good things for the RS4 I suppose.

could have been me.  I was taking my 2 boys up to Levin to see their grandparents.  and then back again the same day

tell you what, day time drivers are really aggressive and do some stupid sh*t!

I went to te awamutu last week for a family thing for my wife.  left at 3:30am and everything was awesome.  truckies and other cars on the road were just playing nicely.  once the sun came up and 'normal' drivers started to join the roads people just started doing some awful stuff.

tailgating, passing on stupid sections on the road, speeding up on the passing lanes then slowing down again.  it was night and day (literally :P ) the difference in attitude drivers had.

???

A2s don't have a normal hinged bonnet, but the grille opens as a 'service hatch'.

From Wikipedia:
Service Hatch / "Serviceklappe"
The front of the car included an unusual design feature called the "Serviceklappe" in German this translates to "service hatch" or "service panel". On early cars, this was a glossy black panel at the lower edge of the bonnet (hood), where the radiator grille would normally be sited. Behind it are the filling points for oil and screen wash fluid, and the dipstick. Thanks to these features, the bonnet does not need to be raised often.
The bonnet was widely rumoured to be sealed Car and Driver wrote: "...feature of the A2 that may foretell the future: the sealed hood". Actually, the bonnet is easily removed, being held in place by two twist-lock catches. The bonnet, weighing 8 kg, then comes away from the car altogether, unlike the usual hinged flip-up arrangement on most other cars. Due to the service hatch, the bonnet does not need to be removed frequently for access to the engine.

I agree, it's aged very well - they always said it was ahead of its time.

They're quite a common sight around London, it would be cool if some more made their way to NZ.

Spotted, some jack ass in a 2010 f150 raptor in black who went out of his way to running me off the road in Albany yesterday. Clearly driving a f150 doesn't require you to merge lanes like the rest if us, and he speed up post lane convergence and squeezed me into the shoulder and almost the curb. Absolute arrogance!! Not to mention highly illegal and dangerous.

Exactly the same thing I tell my friends why I want my car to go upgrade my turbo - it's not having the ability to accelerate on public roads but knowing the amount of power you can get when needed. That to me is pure satisfaction.

Me driving Ferrari's all day down the NSW coast (with allot of time at WOT).

Love the F430, its just so mean. No matter the throttle movement or bumps, this thing was just so direct on its line and direction of travel. It makes the RS4 look like a pussy shopping wagon!

Also loved the 328, Magnum PI style. Quite a nice little car, as long as you are not too physically big.

California was nice, but definitely a GT cruiser, more than hard core.

Big thanks to the supplier that paid for my trip!

I think I know the section of coast where that service station is on...if I am correct, it is both very beautiful and has some nice windy roads too! Sadly my rental that I drove through there last week is nothing like that Ferrari you were piloting...and those NSW cops take their speed enforcement very seriously. Party killers.

We drove south on the coastal road, and then back via their ~national park. The national park was great, low traffic, great roads.
I simply cant rave about how much fun that F430 was! and I'm a picky $##% on cars performance characteristics.
By comparison the California was disappointing. Beautiful to look at, but more bargy by comparison. Probably a little unfair and only as we drove it after the F430. My 2nd favourite was the 328 (Magnum PI style). Again so beautiful, and yet it handled and performed adequately for what is a classic car. If I had a $100k for a sunday car (which i dont!) i would almost get a 328, and they wouldnt depreciate either.

Being Aluminium there shouldn't be a lot of rust but I did read an article some time back saying that the resale value of a used Aston is negligible in the UK.
If you are worried about depreciation, then they are one to avoid but I suppose if you have the cash to throw at something like that then maybe depreciation does not matter so much.
At the time of the article they were heavily discounting new cars so as to move them which was irritating existing owners as of course it worsened the depreciation factor even further.

If people do their checks  they are getting bargains. Having said that bugger all people actually do their checks....

Just remember the more that come in the cheaper parts (hopefully) get.

Spotted today a slow arse immaculate grey C5 RS6 holding me up on the best part of my commute from Akaroa, the hills.  The bloke has well over 400hp he should have the decency to use it or at least pull over!

He is youngish- mid 20's and runs a large part of his families company manufacturing electronic components for smart phones, from memory out of Malaysia?? Not 100% so don't quote me. If it is him, he started working there when he was 16 or something and moved up the ranks. I LOVE the Aventador, would love one in black with a few Jon Olssen style touches added.

a car costing that amount of money, why would you not finance it, stupid to tie up so much money in a car when you can finance and write off the monthly figure anyway.
The stupid person would be someone who thinks buying it outright is a good idea!
First you need a taxable income that is big enough to handle the monthly interest write off....$650k @ probably 10 or 11% unless security is held over a property somewhere allowing a nice low 5.xx%.

And then you need to pay the Fringe Benefit Tax, because it surely doesn't come into the classification of 'Work Related Vehicle'. FBT on $650 would be approx $80k per year....

Dont know where you went to school but;

$650k Car
10% Deposit $65k
= Payments of $13,912.81 a month over a 5 year term @ around 16-20% Interest rate depending on lender

So thats $463.76 a day (Averaged out for 30 day months)

Not that much really  8)

Interesting ... I definitely know one of the owners and suffice to say that when your family owns major infrastructure contracts with the People Republic of China Government you are pretty much set for life + a few more. I am told that one other owner's family owns "the" well known traditional chinese cough syrup company that's been around for centuries ... again set for life + some more.

Well, since the world is ending next month...sign me up an Aventador... if it doesn't though...I guess I will be financially screwed for a few years. Of course, if I plan to be a survivor...I can just raid one from somewhere anyway.

Spotted it from a distance on Rosedale Rd. We were south bound in that heinous traffic.

About 15 minutes before saw a late '70's Combi going hell for leather in the opposite direction on Kahikatea Flats Rd. Definitely a man in a hurry.

a similar thing happened on an old WRX and it was a cheap crank angle sensor.  hopefully it's something similar (or just as cheap :P  )

quite a few MK4s from beat up to shiny
lots of MK5s esp GTIs
a few MK6s, mostly GTI
didn't see any MK3s

quite a few Caddys and vans

AUDI

several A1s
nice A3 cabrio close to where we were staying
sundry A4s

didn't see anything really exotic, except perhaps a nice Studebaker Lark and an Aston downtown, but there were a lot of pared back cafe style motorbikes and a lot of pastel coloured single speed or fixie bicycles

Emerson Motor Works M1 GT.  Built in Mt Roskill in the 80s.  Weighs bugger all, and and the guy's just had two bloody enormous turbos stuck on!

From google:

"4 Hand-built alloy supercars (only 2 completed) build in NZ the late '80s Featured in NZ Classic Car Magazine June 2000. 5 Speed ZF transaxle 377 Chev V8 powered Performance: 0-100km under 4 secs Over 170Mph top speed 12.0 sec 1/4 mile (@ 126Mph) Pukekohe 1m6secs (inexperienced driver) Timed at 172 Mph on back-straight. This is a very well presented, civilised drivable car. Has full air-conditioning and electric windows. A rare opportunity to own an exclusive piece of NZ automotive history, would suit the decerning collector or make the ultimate targa car."
