  1. That is decent, only ever managed 10L/100km in my crown and celsior. this makes me want another one
  2. Also assuming pulse wheel isn’t damaged or slid out of place. Some are a ring that is interference fit.
  3. It’s not had a cv or axle change? Different tooth counts on the pulse ring?
  4. Similar story for us, market changes and doom and gloom it's looking smarter to stay put for now.
  5. What’s estimate on that in current market? Couldn’t agree on a price?
  6. I just had a better read through your thread on the laptop instead of phone. That engine is going to be super sweet, I had a bandit 1200 at one point and it was such a smooth effortless engine. The fronte's were always fun to pest around in with Joe & John but bleeding from the ears is probably not great long term!
  7. Yeah it's nice when sellers play along and it's better to accept a compromise up front because DT doesn't guarantee they'll pay up. The 335D I just bought had a noise from the rear of the car, seller reckoned runflat tyres were a bit old. Hmm drove it to Wgtn from Auckland and yeah that aint tyres. The seller kindly paid the $1200 bill to have it replaced.
  8. Yeah if infrequently I just check tyres and reset. It does work though because I had a nail in a tyre the last time it pinged. Was about 20PSI in the tyre when I made it to the station, probably something like a 10psi difference when the light came on.
  9. I'm no expert on cooling/airflow but looks like you could close in the air path to go through the radiator better? Looks fricken chur and still remember going for a ride in your other turbo tank.
  10. what do you do to tell it to go up and down? Such high levels of commitment to kitchen usage.
  11. RE spark plug socket, I believe a pressed steel socket is the go to that mitsi peeps have in their tool box. Like so
  12. https://www.turners.co.nz/Damaged-Vehicles/Damaged-Cars-for-Sale/suzuki/swift/21993447 wheels + car attached
  13. This has reminded me that a young chap broke down outside my house in a manual swift sport. He'd learnt to drive in it and had it full of his mates. I checked if they were all good and it's exhibiting all the same signs you're expressing. Unsure how he got on but he openly admitted he rode the clutch all the time haha. I think 5 up finished the job.
  14. I know what you mean about shakey mirror, the z4 mirror glass was hanging on by a tiny bit of glue and would flap around like mad. Huge distraction!
