  1. @PranK Our cars have a dark grey/black headliners. I have noticed the one without a sunroof does feel a bit darker, but not excessively. The one with the sunroof is perfect as you can just open the cover on the sunroof to let in more light if you want. The kids love being able to look at the sky in the car. And yes, BMW tax is real (it can be worse than GTR tax)... it's why i've started fixing my own cars.
  2. So I just pulled out and put back in (for rattles in the damn sunroof) the headliner of an E61 Wagon. (Slightly older than yours of course). They're pretty straight forward to do (assuming you like allen keys and Torx). If you find a cheap headliner as a replacement that suits your car, give that a go. Just remember that there will be airbags everywhere. The cool part is once you have removed the trims from the pillars, there are just some clips that need pointy nose pliers to get the lining out. It took me a while (about 4 hours in total, over two days, so bank on using a half day and you won't go wrong). For me, I found a bunch of clips that had snapped an the sunroof motor bracket was loose. Removed busted items, tightened bracket, no more rattles! I think someone may have replaced the sunroof motor before me, only they forgot to screw it in properly.
  3. Nice car man. I still haven't gotten around to doing anything about my car yet. However, we did add a little girl to the household recently. So its not like i've been sitting on my backside. I'm currently looking for a new toy car, and i'll probably sell one of the wagons. I'm also going to be storing a friends 34 GTR. So at least my 33 will have a friend!
  4. Hi all, I know this is a Skyline forum. I know we don't like Supras. But... i really want to buy one. If you have one wasting away or you know of one, please let me know. Must be a Supra RZ, manual. Prefer less modifications as I already have a big number car in the garage. That said I won't rule them out just yet. Ideally my budget will depend on the car, but i'm hoping for a project car for my mates and I to work on. Budget: $20k - 40k. Depending on condition, paperwork, kms etc etc. Thanks. Steve.
  5. Super tempting mate. I'll miss this if it disappears from the forum. Good luck with the sale!
  6. Forward facing child seats can fit in all models of Skyline Coupe, be it 32, 33 or 34. Have a quick search using the key words "baby seat". https://www.sau.com.au/forums/search/ Good luck!
  7. Can't wait. Depending on your timing, there might be a really little one in the house.
  8. @Quicky134 you can narrow it further by looking at this table: http://gtr-registry.com/en-er34-vin-table.php Your car is one of 739 that were produced and the colour was used on 1.98% of the ER34s.
  9. Ok, first up, i know i've been slack adding content here... Life gets in the way of my SAU presence. So I have done a few things with the car since I last posted above. I met up with @Pal while over in Perth. We run a Facebook page and are trying to find all the LMs. I've been to a couple of charity car shows/cars n coffees. I've also been out with my Facebook mates a few times now. And most recently had one of the member take professional photos with my car and a model. Ironically, my mate and I sat and chatted about push bikes for 2.5 hours.I finally washed the car completely. It still had heaps of fingerprint dust all through the car. I've also got aspirations for more parts, starting with a useful stereo as this one is shit, no ok, no suitable, not capable. Shit! Really shit. At full volume it barely covers the noise of the full pumps. Side note, I also joined the Instagram world as LMLimitedSteve so if you want to see more pictures look me up!
  10. Yessss. Join the dark side.
  11. Well, i still think i'm lucky just to have it. I just love looking at it in my yard. I still can't believe this car from Gran Turismo is here with me in the metal.
  12. I'm lazy... and i'm 31. It's for the R33 LM Limited that i bought a while back. It was the one that nearly got stolen on day 1. So I still have to wait another full year before my 65% discount applies.
  13. Re: the sitting on the bonnet. My only comment was, please don't burn yourself. (The engine and Turbos had heat soaked the rad and intercooler). No one got burned. I would say all was successful!!!
  14. I just got my car revalued by both Famous and Shannons. Famous were happy to review the documents (theres almost 100) and my online presence for the car. They valued it at 70k with a $1500 annual fee. Shannons would not re-value the car without a whole bunch of specific pictures and details, that I couldn't be bothered completing. I ended up taking the car to them so they could see the car in person. Once I was there it wasn't an issue and they immediately agreed to 80k value. They are much more expensive ($2800 per year) but I don't mind, i'm in it for the agreed value. Truth is I can't replicate the car and the modifications for 80k. But at a least that value would get me a clean one landed and in my driveway.
  15. Yessssssss! So happy this got found. Was genuinely considering cruising around my area (and yours @mercyseat ) to see if we could spot it. Awesome work. Thanks everyone who assisted and kept their eyes out for this.
