    Thinking about a Mk4 Golf GTI - thoughts?

    I'm considering selling the Astra and getting something cheaper, the idea of a Mk4 GTI (and getting a tune done on it) came into my head. Thoughts? Advice? Other options for around the same price ($15k AUD)? A previous gen (TS) Astra turbo is also an option. Cheers.

    Farewell MR2, Hello Astra. Wait, what??

    The time had come after five years of trusty, and more-than-a-little amusing service, to replace the MR2. So I give you my new(ish) set of wheels, the ones that made JC eat his hair. It's a 2006 MY07 (late '06 build) SRi Turbo, 10,000kms old, and just superb to drive. Doesn't look half-bad...

    iTunes not recognising CD Burners

    I hate iTunes. It's become a mission - the only reason I'm using iTunes is because my recently departed (no, she's not dead, just gone forever) wife bought an iPod (when we were together). The bloody program refuses point blank to recognise either of my optical drives as CD Burners - which...

    R32 Skyline tries to eat itself

    I'm not a mechanic, but I know 'bad' and 'expensive' when I see it. Hmm, bonnet won't close: That's a bit unusual: And some chassis mods: Ooh, that doesn't look cheap: Well there's your problem!

    Hamster's helmet - vote on style & design

    Okay folks, we need to decide on Hamster's helmet. We can go for a full-face (hardcore racer), or open-face (as used on the show). Design wise we have the Zonda pic (this would go on the back): Or the Hammond / Hamster logo (to go either on the back, or sides): From the rough quotes I've...
