Kiwi Mostly On Topic - Off Topic Chat Thread.
 
anyone have any advice or feedback on BuyRight Cars, 573 Great South Road Papatoetoe?

Found a nice car on TM but after a mate had a very bad experience with buying sight unseen from Auckland (he here in Christchurch) am a bit wary!

How come car delaers on TM don't seem to have the percentage feedback that private sellers do??

Cheers

Hi Folks
I renamed the thread this can become the place to ask all the non motorcycle questions or for off topic chat.

Had the same issues last July found a car in Auckland thru a car broker in Auckland on Trade me.
Things started well and then started to turn Pear shape ,
Lack of answers given and then nothing followed up on as promised
Once I asked are you the guys about to appear on Fair go ?? or have you seen the program Target ?
That got things moving real quick , and it was on it's way within a couple of days with evrything done as requested.
Feel bloody lucky I had a win.
Think next time I'll fly to Auckland from Dunedin. ($99.00 flights If Jet star is still around )
Mind you it depends on the model of car or value you wish to spend ,
At that time no one had one in the South Island that I was after so it was worth it.

Bugger me , we are given a chance to talk about anything we like & we still can't be arsed.

Took Winston to the practice day at Puke for NZCMRR, went pretty well. Phark some of those guys are fast. Bloody good fun, hope Sat & Sun go as well

Hope you have a great weekend :ricky

Mark_S 02-03-2012 01:43 AM

you'll have traction problems without a chain.....

we want to see video of the weekends racing :)

trustme 02-03-2012 09:32 AM

Chain fitted. The pit crew are not so hot with a camera , lots of front wheel & back wheel or even just track shots !!!

Mark_S 02-03-2012 12:23 PM

Does Winston have a build thread?
Great looking bike

I'm off out to the shed to fit a fan to my wr450 to hopefully help it keep its cool
Oh for a fully equiped workshop instead of a hammer and a blunt file....

marlboroughlad 02-03-2012 05:05 PM

Wow! You got a file?!! I wish I had a file. Gettin sick of fixin everything with my hammer.

I might have done better today if I'd just had a hammer - installed the fan and wired it all up - fused, all connections soldered and heat shrunk - only to have a Homer moment - I hooked the fan up to the lighting circuit - seeing as I don't have any lights - opps DC fan on AC lighting - the fan just sits there and quivers.....:huh

we have a family saying when someones whinging
we say its just a RWMP (rich white man problem)

I thought your workshop was ok - although I'd annex that room next door as part of it...
Have you lost motivation with the 400?

trustme 02-03-2012 10:51 PM

You are doing much better now.

Winston is pharked, I'm off to the man cage for an all nighter.

Wish me luck. I'd elucidate but I don't have time or a blunt file.

That room got 13 grand spent on it and is rented out :(

Not so much motivation as ability. From now on, things require fabrication skills.

Although I have been waiting on some engine mounts I won on TM for a year or two...
