Sprint Blue RS4 Avant (B7) heading south at Awatoto (between Napier and Hastings) this morning.  Not seen one in  that colour in the flesh before - looked very good.

Also saw a red 130 Abarth just prior, Drew?

Saw another B7 RS4 later in the day but this time a black sedan.  Wife agreed that it was a very good looking car.

I've been following her for a while now, have always wanted to meet the person behind the blog so it's good to finally meet her in person but caught totally off-guard hence the "star struck" moment.

I guess the word "famous" means differently to each individual. :)

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

steel wheels and cloth seats would get it closer to the target price, apparently the autos are a mechatronic single clutch device, slow changes unlike the DSG

Yeah, just an automated manual in reality, apparently OK on the open road but jerky around town and manouvering, just when a proper auto would be at its best.
As you say, steel wheels, cloth interior, manual transmission and they would be heading in the right direction. No sat nav or any other gizmos unrealated to actual driving would be a bonus

Saw a blue Clio V6 (mid-engined) in Napier today.  The facelift model.
I'm pretty sure that is the one that had some 'enthusiastic parking' by a renault employee which resulted in it having to be reshelled. I looked at it when it was for sale post and decided against it due to its history and some interesting shut lines.

some idiot in a SUV with crichq.com plastered all over it driving like a moron towards the airport.

speeding, weaving, tail gating, making bad lane choices and switching back and forth like a charlie ocksucker

i'm guessing they are running late for a flight and decide that they need to get there and everyone else can get f'd

What's so special about the 2012 Audi RS4 Avant's brakes?
Audi is so keen to keep the mass down in this vital area it's actually adopted a 'wave' brake disc design for the standard stoppers, saving 3kg. Familiar from superbikes, these have a distinctive wavey edge, helping the pads bite and the discs maintain shape at high temperatures.

Audi man was a tad disappointed when I said it wouldn't be my first choice to spend $160k on...

I don't know what to be more shocked at. The fact that someone has an Audi in palmy, or the fact there is traffic lights in palmy.

(tongue firmly in cheek)

nice audi thou.

Cayenne was on order, decided against it, instead got rs4 due to Giltraps stuffing us around (went to conti).  Car is in transit will be here on 14th March.  Many pictures will followed.

too be honest, I only noticed the Audi after I took the picture! 

The chrome wrap had me like a possum in the headlights, trying to decide if I liked it or hated it.  just like the possum!   (it doesn't end well for the possum though!)

Truth be told the guy apparently is quite a hard case. No goatee to speak of, tats yes.

I see a lot of the body work stuff at the shop that did the chrome wrap, involves custom work, rather than out and out repairs.

Title: Re: The Official SPOTTED Thread 2013
Post by: Poonmobile on February 14, 2013, 10:45:56 pm
It will be because of your staggered rims Tim, they always recommend running all wheels at the same rolling radius i.e. same width and tyre profile especially on 4wd cars. Prolonged use of staggered rims can damage haldex etc from my research.
Title: Re: The Official SPOTTED Thread 2013
Post by: creepdontsleep on February 14, 2013, 11:01:12 pm
Yup! the different offsets, widths of rims and the tyre sizes made it difficult to throw the R into a corner i usually take pretty hard. felt uncomfortable and unsafe..

just to clarify
Stock MK5 R32 wheels
18x7.5 51et all around
225/40/18 tyres

Alphards
18x8.5 35 et front
215/40/18
18x9.5 40et rear
225/40/18

More poke, stretched tyres, different offsets and widths did have an effect on the haldex. But not noticeable enough until: you really corner hard that right hand bend up the slope with no camber on the road. The r32 understeered through it, when it always GRIPS like caked on bird crap on your bonnet.

definitely going lighter wheels and a R32 diet! :)

Also did notice a few undamaged mk4 golf fresh imports on the docks  i had heard a few loop holes had opened in the import laws but didnt think people would bother importing such antiquated vehicles....

Seemed like a nice young bloke... it was a jap import with number plate starting with F... Probably had a down pipe as the exhaust was louder than standard.

He probably thought mine was pretty standard - I like mine to look as stock as possible.

Not car related but spent 3 odd hours out at Trentham (Wellington RC Aero club) watching RC choppers etc today as they are having a fun fly weekend.

a national event , so people from all over NZ.  fri , sat and sun dedicated to RC helicopters (and a few quads) so if you are in the area and love this stuff I'd recommend taking a look.  really nice guys and are happy to talk

quite a few people flying (3 areas) so you didn't have to wait long to see some action.  and often there were 3 up at once.

saw one guys chopper come to grief and shoot the rotors off in opposite directions and the thing sail to the ground. 

it's pretty much next to the shooting range at Trentham (no , they don't take pot shots at the annoying things as they face the other way)

i didn't take any photos of any actually flying which was pretty lame!  i think i was like a possum caught in the head lights!

In Melbourne at the mo sifting around.

Turns out there is some temporary Ferrari thing being built up for (what I assume) the F1 event 100ms from the place we are staying.

Big screen etc, they were unloading a few of these when we were wandering by.

I do like how the towie strapped the car down over the tyre instead of using the rims (like I've seen in other pics).

They unloaded them with a bit of confidence and caution. Looked like they had handled these types of cars a bit.

Very nice, very pro

I see a guy in a grey R50 every morning at my coffee stop cafe. He has MTM wheels on his.
They have unique suspension (shock PN's), and use Cayenne Turbo sway bars, bigger brakes (suspect porsche turbo again).
Power is up, and interior gets better bits.
ie more that just a pretty body kit.
From memory they were another $40k over the regular V10 !

I had one of these to use for a month and a half last year.. great fun heaps of torque... but mostly wank factor... it was ok on the open road..i took it to Mt Ruapehu a few times... the suspension height control is annoying if its set to auto it does all sorts of wacky self leveling crap at the lights... it wasn't fantastic on gas but was probably miles better than the petrol equivalent...

I had it permanently set to lowest possible driving position.. and the Suspension stiffness set to sport.. if in comfort if felt like you were on a boat in a storm... (car sickness ensued)

The tiptronic paddles were also ridiculous as they were static (ie didn't move with the wheel) ie only usable when hands were at "9 and 3"

As for the gearbox.. it was clunky and noisy and shifted like an old road ranger transmission (ie slow)


My Passat still had more boot capacity and rear legroom that that thing...

Remember, they are a 4WD, and not a refined car. They are also 10+ year old engineering.
We have our 2006 Touareg 3.0 Tdi set to sport mode for the air suspension the entire time. Plus I vagcom tricked it another 10mm lower.
Our transmission is quite good, and certainly wouldnt call it clunky for a 4wd. It will understeer if pushed, so slower in and power out is essentual.
Overall we quite like it for a big safe family truck that can tow the car trailer like its not even there. The 3.0tdi also does 1000+kms a tank on the open road.

At F1 yesterday.

Was pretty cool, lots going on and very entertaining (Jimmy Barnes played which was pretty sweet!)

Too be honest once the F1 cars got moving and you saw a few (or 30 laps) it got a bit same same (to me). We ended up leaving early to ease the pain of getting back to the city.

As an event it was great but I don't think I'd go again.

A mate if mine just purchased a new AMG C63 and thought he was in heaven,

when he went to show some mates the sound of this V8 , he started it revd it up and the car went knock a knock a knock,

The car had only done 120klm,

The dealer got the phone call that all car dealers dread, this car cost $169 k,

The car was picked up and returned to Ingham Prestige

So after a diagnosis they found the big end bearings wrer were the blame.

Merecedes sent a new engine out and has just been refitted .

As all these engines are hand built, i bet the guy who signed it will be asked some questions at HQ

This car is amazing and has a real bark in the exhaust,

Robert asked me if i wanted a drive today, but didn't, i would sooner have a drive later,

That number of early Kombi's in nothing compaired to the Nelson Nationals a few years back ! They would have had double that as there was a Kombi South Island Tour straight after & it effectively started at the conclusion of the nationals . As for the Water cooled showing, that would have to be a first with no water cooled??  last year had enough that they had two water cooled catagorys with three prizes in each !

When I look at the shots of the nationals just been, there appears to be one shot of a Blue MK2 Golf with a red late 1980's Passat parked next to it that look to have been RIGHT up the back of the grounds?? So there might have been a couple of cars there ??

Sad showing VASK  ;)
I think its become an Aircooled event simply because the water cooled don't show??

Its always a good weekend ( not that I showed up to this years ) Next year is in Timaru

A very boring looking standard Grey Holden Cruze Diesel driving along the north western this morning.
Why mention it you may ask.... the set of four lights in the windows, 2 in front and 2 in rear made me look twice. The two guys in the front wearing police uniforms was a scary sight

A step sideways.
Verdict - if you have an X-100, update to latest firmware and save $$$.
If you don't have an X-100 and want one, buy used and save $$$.

X100s has more pixels (12mp >16mp), starts up a bit faster and AF is a wee bit faster but my X100 with v1.30 firmware wasn't much slower.

Manual focus using the focussing ring still sucks, if I manual focus I use the AFL shortcut.

Plus I'm stingy !

The X100s is $1900 !

Post by: brian on April 13, 2013, 09:02:38 am
The problem is not getting past, it is when they pass the cyclist on a curve , with the trailer already overhanging the cycle lane (most seem unable to drive in the centre of the lane) they then forget the trailer  completely and cut  right across the cycle lane often with the towing vehicle as well.
I agree 100% with what you say, plenty of room in most instances to share the space but there are too many bad drivers who do not.
Just try riding a bike, even for one day, and I think your opinion would change

the issue arises when they pass you, the driver might think there's plenty of room, but then the trailer comes along and cut you close, it's mostly unexpected by the cyclist because the vast majority of vehicles don't tow trailers

What really annoys me are the cyclists who go on and on about having same rights etc. yesterday I was in Queen St, AKL.  Thentraffic lightsmwere red (and had been formsome time) and a bike came up inside me at full noise, through the red light, nearly hit someone crossing the road and then acted like a dick.  Imagine doing that in a car......... 

They want the rights of a car, but don't want to follow the same rules.

so I pulled up behind a road user a few weeks ago, right turn bay, red arrow, green for through traffic

person decided they weren't going to wait so ran the red

guess what?  it wasn't a cyclist

A police search of the Hope Rd property they occupied on March 20 last year uncovered $764,830 cash, 4 grams of methamphetamine, 16 weapons, some loaded, and hundreds of rounds of ammunition.

The Crown successfully argued that Rose and Murray peddled P to the tune of $5.5 million in an unusually secure house where loaded guns were readily available. Security cameras and a buzzer alerted the dealers to anyone straying on to their property. There was a "tick list" showing who owed money and a notebook to keep track of where the cash was stashed.

Spotted today in P-town, some old mutton dressed to the nines, getting out of a new grey RS4.

Instead of having the E30 M3 SA had the 333i (3.3) and the 325is (2.7). I dont know why SA never got any E30 M3's CKD kits like they did M5's etc.

It's on a hill and a side slope, not doing it any favours. :))  I think the design stands up well, but a couple of sizes up on the wheels and an inch or so lower would be lovely.  Great to see stuff like this out in the wild.

1 white, 1 orange and not sure what the other one is - forever driving side by side up and down Quay Street.

iv seen that white aventador quite often.iv followed it for ages while it
popped and revved like some sort of f1 car echoing off the buildings in the city.
the trans in those things are awsome.
from what iv been told he is 22 and his dad owns sony ericcson.
he crashed his last supercar and was told not to drive silly
on the street so brought 5 more supercars from continental cars and takes them
on a transporter to the track with his mates.be a good mate to have.
so im guessing the other in question maybe his also.

Think the are 2 whites, one orange and one matte black lp700



Young guy with the white one has a collection of high end cars, friends have cars to match, maserati, 335, r8, x6m, rs6, c63 and so on. A few of them don't even hold NZ drivers licenses or have lost their NZ ones

Yea she sold the wheels and the car separately so no one would have the same combo

But the girl who writes loveitlow who also had a white mx5 with bride bucket seats bought them so her car looks identical to taryns old mx5...

And then the one pictured is another one who replicated taryns car

oh real? I didn't know, thought it was loveitlow because her partner bought my BLQs.

Haha, they're not replicas. Just two white MX5's that are low with white hardtops, Watanabes are common on MX5's and hard to find a geniune set in NZ. The other has O.G Sakura's. Unfortunately anyone that does up a white MX5 is going to be labelled a copycat, which is annoying.

I know its a few pages back but the asian guys with Aventadors and what not. One guy, Mike, has several super cars. He crashed his old Lambo on Pukekohe when he had no license or insurance. He's got a BMW M3, 650, a maserati convertible, Aventador, 335, Ferrari 599, and a few others. He's around 27 now, has a restricted license. Family owns one of China's biggest manufacturing companies.

Apparently one time his mum was coming over and they were picking her up from the airport but she doesn't like sitting in the front passanger seat so they bought a porsche cayenne just to pick her up.

Also I'm pretty sure that his parents own the house he lives in

Not sure what,  but it was blue and said Golf on the tail, looked like a mk5 but had taillights like a Passat, stop light in the centre where a regular MK5 has the indicator and the indicator in the outside ring.  But it seemed narrow, like around Polo width.   Only saw it from behind.

Not sure what,  but it was blue and said Golf on the tail, looked like a mk5 but had taillights like a Passat, stop light in the centre where a regular MK5 has the indicator and the indicator in the outside ring.  But it seemed narrow, like around Polo width.   Only saw it from behind.

Northcote, mid afternoon.

Probably a Golf Plus?

I wondered that, but as I was in the MK4 as a point of reference, it seemed narrow rather than usual width and taller, didn't get enough of a side view around the roundabout to get a good fix on it

SEAT Exeo and new Audi A3 as undercover Police cars on High Holborn in London yesterday.

I've been seeing a lot of the new A3 and the new Octavia around, and the Mk7 Golf seems to be taking over the roads!

I also saw 5 Veyrons and a W16 engine on display on Saturday at Jack Barclay Bugatti: http://cars.uk.msn.com/news/record-breaking-fastest-bugattis-come-to-london

I agree John. I don't think there is anyone that would identify one better than me and I still have to look a few times to do it with the new ones. Whereas the B5 and B7 just jump out even to the non-anorak people.  ;D

Never have I once said anything about NZ revolving around only Auckland?

Not sure if my previous comment wasn't clear enough but I was shocked at the existence of an R32TT - not where is it located.

Now let's put this ridiculous perception to an end.

Not secretive haha, he's probably about 70 and he just drives it, and he doesn't spend much time on the internet, let alone on a VW forum. I only know about it because he's in the club down here.

Compared to the few other car I have driven, the RS4 does feels that way. Perhaps I have just never driven similar cars except for the S6 equipped with a 5.2 V10 - now that is something different.

Bob Jones lives (lived?) at the top of the hill in the Hutt Valley where I grew up and he had a Dino (they were never sold as Ferraris) with the silver on black registration plate GT 246, sadly it wasn't rerliable enough for him so he traded it on a 240Z

When I purchased the GT3 I was told the story. Apparently it was done in the early hours of the morning on the Western M Way and no one was around - so if you're going to try this, it was probably the best time.....  The car had been modified a bit and is putting out about 480bhp so is pretty quick.

I love his choice in cars.

I know where the Aventador parks. It's actually white with a dark vinyl coating I believe. The owner is really a nice guy and changes his cars like we do our underpants. He also has an Aston Martin but for how long is anyones guess. DB9, DBS, F430 Scuderia, F360, M3, M5, F468, RR Sport, Lambo Super Leggero, Gallardo are just some of the cars I can remember he has had in the last 18 months. Have yet to see an Audi though and probably won't if he hasn't already.

I would have to agree.  For years I thought the F50 was quite ordinary.  Then when I really looked at a few and went for a drive in one I was truly amazed and had a real respect for the car.

The F50 will be a future money making machine for its owners as there were so few produced.

Hated when new, but loved now..

Don't be so quick to judge.

The March definitely. Not my first choice for a 'sleeper', although this one has lost that edge with a gammy wing on the back.

There's a tame looking (except for a small rear wing) 2011 Mitsi Mirage down the road too, but it has a 4B11T powering all four wheels a la Evo style.

Yes, Jap spec, thats pretty much the only differnce over Euro spec. US spec have a lot of different features to a Euro spec car, different headlights, side lights, they dont have the extra fuel tank etc.

Having the dogleg box is what people really want. The cars on TM that sit are always Jap or US spec, and I think the Euro spec car gets around about a 10K premium (that might not really be that justified).

And then you get cars like the silver one which has a mix of EU/US parts;

Eg. US gearbox, EU bumpers without side repeaters etc.

The Daytona is gorgeous !

Yeah mate..although getting pretty sick of this weekend traffic to be honest!

Work is ok at 6:30am, but seeing this sort of s**te on the weekend makes me want to cash up and move further south

yeah tell me about it. Problem with moving further South is...where to? I could do Mt Maunganui, Welly or Lower SI...but honestly, before I did that...it would be Oz for us. Using the bike for commuting at the moment...but a 1000cc sportsbike is a little of an overkill for a traffic commuter.

Have just started training for the Auckland half and its amazing what you notice when out around your local town on foot.

I have noted three VW houses locally, one is only three doors down, they have a Mk5 Golf Diesel Tractor and a V6 Borra in blue, two other places have a 80's Passat and an assortment of other average but rarish VW's.

One thing that had dawned on me is that 80% of the cars you see from the 80's these days are European, seems most of the others have rusted or died out? So much for Japanese reliability.

The A1 is designed to compete with the Mini, and Alfa Romeo MiTo. The car is aimed mostly at young, affluent urban buyers.

The A1 is produced at Audi's Belgian factory in Forest, near Brussels. The A1 is based on the Volkswagen Group PQ25 platform, the same platform used in the SEAT Ibiza Mk4 and the VW Polo Mk5, and in its development Audi has collaborated with SEAT.

It is but perhaps Rambo was referring to the premium specs?

I saw this last Friday as I was driving past. Made a quick u-turn and had a good look..

Engine looks like it leaks oil, 100,000 miles (yes, odo in miles), couple of bumps and scrapes, and a crack in the front bumper, some wood trim missing from the tray too.

The guy came out and i asked how much he wanted. He said it's not for sale as he plans on using it for as a promotional vehicle.

Shame as I really wanted it! My mate had one in Germany.. And the novelty of sliding the back wall of the cab back to reveal 2 extra seats never wears off.

Don't judge a book by its cover. She could've easily gone for the A250 instead. ;)

Its most likely a "family" car. Some cultures do things differently than yours or mine.


100 points to the son who convinced the parents they needed a AMG A45 though, I could only manage to convince my mum to buy a Ford Focus  :(


Spotted Hayden Paddon on Rally Wiararapa doing recce in a Skoda Yetti, have never seen a small SUV type of vehicle move like that before!

the family I bought my VR6 from had arrived from Hong Kong (I think) and bought a new Merc for dad and the VW for mum, which they held onto for 12 years, they were delightful, but when I was dealing with them the term "top of the line" was repeated several times so I'm pretty sure that there is an awareness of what they're buying

a few months after I bought the car I was stopped at the lights and saw the daughter on Anzac Ave and she asked how I was enjoying the car, nice!

Have money, will spend. Like most of the new performance cars on the road they are purchased for image rather than performance. Look at most of the modern GTI's, they are normally driven by middle aged woman.
Be grateful though cos these cars will filter down to the enthusiasts in a few years time.

Where's the 'like' button? The same could be said for the "R32" and "R" models. (although the GTI models are always going to be more affordable)

But they are mostly automatic so not really that awesome if you enjoy driving  :-\

Its typical NZ market, always has been like that, 80% or more automatics.

Sells cars though, if the Golf GTI was manual only you would never see them.

Didn't realize Sirocco R's were $120k new  ;)

My wife spotted her next car at Archibald & Shorter the other day when we were in for a check up, the 2013 Jaguar XF Sportbrake with sport package, blacked out chrome and wheels with dark tints. Its a sexy car, currently sitting next to a nice Orange F-Type.

Exact same as this, looks way better in the flesh.

This is more than likely they one you saw:

It has different spec wheels and front and rear aero.

There have been two that I know of, the Whittaker one and the Bhatnagar one

Three, the one in the pic above and the two you mentioned.
Bhatnager car was XP4 and I believe the Whittakers purchased their car new, which they still have.
I think someone like Larry Ellison owns XP4 now?

was walking back from one of the other facilities and spotted a local (but not Weta) RS4 B7 Avant fang'ing it down the street.  Really narrow roads with cars parked either side, not enough room for cars either way, busy area and this idiot was hoof'ing it.  Diiiiick.

oh nice! yeah he said he had an S4 so I guess thats it!  he's just rebuilt the box on it.  I 'should' have taken the RS2 to them from the start (like everyone told me to).  Oh well...

The RS4 has just been in for a warrant.  Needs a few parts but nothing major and the RS2 is booked in on Friday the 13th for a health check and focus on cleaning the MAF and connection plus a boost leak test plus a road test to see what other treats need doing.  Friday the 13th...tempting fate a bit...

Really nice guys and what I've seen and heard so far has given me loads of confidence in them

I've been trying to get an official report from Audi regarding the gearbox so I can send it to the UK gearbox guys to get things going as far are claims go but lets just say it's not going well.  Might just have to forget about that part of my life and move on...

oh nice! yeah he said he had an S4 so I guess thats it!  he's just rebuilt the box on it.  I 'should' have taken the RS2 to them from the start (like everyone told me to).  Oh well...

The RS4 has just been in for a warrant.  Needs a few parts but nothing major and the RS2 is booked in on Friday the 13th for a health check and focus on cleaning the MAF and connection plus a boost leak test plus a road test to see what other treats need doing.  Friday the 13th...tempting fate a bit...



Na, not when your car had the plate TH666 (The Devil?)

Cheaper........just. More manuals to choose from / bid on then here.
Most here seem to be tipo's, targa's or cabrio's none of which I wanted.
Carrera 2 was what I wanted but were a good 500,000 yen more than a Carrera 4

It's more 964 values are going up as its the last small bodied 911 made which most are using
for backdate projects hence demand has increased, even in the UK they are expensive as well.
Here in NZ they are quite cheap compared to the US and UK, Japan is also going up.

Singer has also gone over to the 964 due to its more advanced susp among other things.

Dunno, want to finish the Ghia first and just do bits n pieces to the 964 but probably comply it first as is then start messing with it.
Have a bunch of stuff to sort out for compliance anyway so will just chip away at it.

White Nissan R35 GTR race prepped near Whitford, heading out into the country. Bloody fast car. Like nearly faster in a straight line than my 2011 CBR1000rr with Power Commander 5 and full exhaust system fast...which I happened to be riding at the time. When he opened the taps, I would have only been able to catch him at a crawling pace. Managed to have a chat to the bloke when we both stopped at an intersection, he was test driving it having just built it for a customer as a race car. 8XX HP at the wheels. I would love to a) have a drive of that thing on a track and b) have a proper race against him on a closed road or race track.
