  1. I remember playing this about 15 years ago at work - always seem to live in the past, for some reason. Then we had some computers hooked up on private LAN and played CS 1.6 & CS:S during lunch time. Speaking of which, I had a go at CS:GO the other day as it's free to play, (I had to upgrade the graphics card first) it turned out that I can't handle the jandal any more...
  2. A silly question - is there a reason why rego sticker is bottom left of the screen and wof top right? Or is it just random? The reason I ask is I want to put overlay on the top of the screen but if I do that the wof sticker will have to come further down from the top right corner. I'd rather have wof sticker out of line of sight, along the bottom corner of the screen etc.
  3. MPV and sliding doors are cool - or maybe he should get on upmarket version, like Toyota Alphard - apparently that's how they roll in Singapore and thereabouts these days... Alternatively I hear CHC or South Island in general is the home of good AU coons so...
  4. Just some random thoughts. I've never been to one but I wonder if you get a decent look at the screen sitting at the back? I also wonder what they do with seat belt exempted old schools.
  5. speaking of sick, im feeling off colour, I'll have to bail... next month hopefully. hope you guys enjoy.
  6. finally, an opportunity for some fine dining - it's a bit past my dinner time and i'll have to miss shortland street though, i should be able to make it.
  7. Hi, On a 2 door car with back seats, is it necessary to have the mechanism to quick fold the front seatback, both on passenger and driver side? I had a look at VIRM but it doesn't seem to mention anything like that. Cheers
  8. re: work lamp, is it pretty much anything goes as long as the switch is independent of any other functional light switches? like it doesnt have to be diffused, mounted anywhere, pointing any direction etc etc?
  9. yeah the queue was double that when i went to my local yesterday 4pm - i wonder if it'll be better during work hours though.
  10. bumper part is easy - just the supermarket experience, more than half the time you are waiting to get in or for the cashier, then they have hardly any good stuff once you are in there. no steak and cheese pies!!! my neighbour seems to do ok online, i'd better check with them.
  11. I think I'll be fine until lockdown is over - I went to supermarket yesterday, don't want to repeat that experience so will be trying for online...
  12. fairly subjective though? this is what mine looks like.
  13. Is the removal of rear bumper plastic and/or bumper steel legal? I'm currently driving around with neither on a temporary basis while getting the towbar sorted (which will be after the lockdown - I can always put the bumper back on, yes). I have looked at virm, it doesn't specifically mention rear bumper but does mention hooking vehicle/person & injury to person and frontal impact. LVVTA doc states it's fine if frontal impact is not affected (not specific to rear bumper). Normally you don't get up to high enough speed to cause damage to vehicle/person while driving backwards (but can happen I suppose). Opinions? Cheers
  14. the are a few on TM https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-parts-accessories/interior/lights/listing-2562577075.htm?rsqid=a0b324b7a56a4f6fa89a06552825c16d-002 how do they bloody pass wof... i had a couple of citroens which activte hazard light on heavy braking which may be useful
  15. are strobing lights legal? i was stuck behind this suv with strobing brake lights the other day - that was beyond super annoying. to be honest, bicycle strobing lights drive me psycho too.
