Re: What will be Your next car

Yeah you can but the A3 is sooo much cooler than a plain old Golf lol
I definitely agree with you on that. I really liked their "classic Euro" look they had going until the 2010 model year. Not a...

Re: Impending Journey's End

From what I've seen (and how hard it was to find one) they are pretty rare.
It is a 2012 Mazdaspeed3 which has a 2.3L DISI Turbo. The massive hood scoop is factory and functional: the turbo...

Re: Impending Journey's End

Well it happened last Thursday at CarMax.
I sold the Astra :cry:
I will say it was probably the most attached I've ever been to a car before and it wasn't easy letting it go.
Thankfully I had it...

Re: StoicKiwi Part Sale

Thanks guys! Glad you got them safely and I hope they get great use from you (except maybe the warning triangle :|)

I wanted to make sure they got there safe and sound because I've known customs...

Re: StoicKiwi Part Sale

Haynes Manual and Triangle are gone!

I think since most of the large items have sold, whatever doesn't sell by August 15th, I'm going to throw on eBay.

As always, PM me if you're interested in...

Thanks for the kind words! I'm glad that Eonon took care of you and accepted my receipt even though it was in your name too :D

Alright, I'll send you a request as soon as I get home this evening. PM me your zip for shipping?
I'm not 100%, but I'm pretty sure the wheel caps are different on the 18's and 17's. They may fit...

Re: StoicKiwi Part Sale

I agree on the torque steer, though there is something charming, quirky, and visceral about it :cool:



When I test drove this, it definitely seemed more tame than the MS3 but also had an...

Re: StoicKiwi Part Sale

Right now I've got my eyes on a nice Mazdaspeed3. I've always been a big hot hatch fan and right now the good choices are GTi :redface:, Focus ST :drool:, and Mazdaspeed3.

Glove box cooler is yours. I have someone else interested in the Shark Fin but if that falls through it is yours as well. I will PM you when I hear back from the other guy.

Re: Impending Journey's End

I considered it and may still do that, estimates pending :)

I have a lot of parts that will possibly be for sale soon and I just wanted to see if anyone was interested. A lot of this stuff is difficult to get in North America. I had to use a dealer in the UK...

Re: Eonon GM5155

Great write up! I know a lot of Astra owners are apprehensive of buying these due to the name brand.
Glad that everything worked out well with the return and everything!

Re: Astra Update

That's the exact one I was looking at! It seems to be one of the few that you can reliably find in the states. Not sure about performance changes though, I've yet to find any data.
