I just took the 300 over to Mornington to have it re-inspected for roadworthy. Apparently theres been some issues and some cars are being recalled.

Has this happened to anyone else? The 300 was first registered here last January.

Yeah i heard this from a few people now, not sure how they can "legally" require another inspection unless the car has been defected :D

Bunch or MOFO's thats what i have to say about that <_<

Stu,

Seems odd to me?

Any chance of getting a copy of the letter (PM me) - Ill run it through the mill.

Cheers

I had it happen to me on my last car (about 12 months ago) and I just did nothing about it and it never caught up with me...

I think it was because I went to one plance for roadworthy because I got it from the mainland and failed because of tint so I took it to dodgy bros the next day, paid again and it passed so I figured it was becuase of that :)

Yes I would have thought that there would need to be a reason why they recall a vehicle. I suspect it may be as a result of things like internal audits etc that show up issues in their internal paperwork etc. Being a gov dept I know they do have regular audits done. For example if an inspector failed to tick a box on a survey sheet then an audit would require that to be rectified. And of course the way to do that is to call the car back (AT YOUR INCONVENIENCE)!!

They wont tell you that because it makes them look like they stuffed up (which they probably have). Rather they will say "Oh we are having a blitz at the moment".

Cheers

    • Oof, glad that it seems have gone much better than it could have. I have seen some pretty terrible tow truck handling just as a bystander. Zero fvcks given and no regard for the cars at all. Also broke down with fuel pump issues the other week as the wiring was on its way out. Roadside assistance guy used to have a Skyline and was looking at Stageas on the market. The tow truck driver also used to own a high powered Skyline and was telling stories about that. Apparently too fast to have any issues with being pulled over... Makes all the difference dealing with people who actually know their cars and care.
    • I had quite the scare last night. I was on the highway just toying around with an Audi. Right after an extended WOT pull, I lost all power. I cruised to a stop on the side of the highway and realized I had no fuel pressure. I keyed on/off a few times and could hear both pumps priming but pressure was still non existent. When you need a towing on a highway in Quebec, it's an automatic call to the provincial police. They don't mess around, they'll gladly destroy your car to get it off the highway asap. I pulled my bumper off as quickly as I could as to not have it destroyed getting it onto the truck. I got lucky as the tow driver was a car guy. He entertained the police while I finished up popping my bumper off and sticking it in my window. As we started taking off, the police drove by the tow driver to tell him we couldn't leave with the bumper sticking out the window. He pulled off on the first exit he saw, did a u turn and got right back on the highway in the direction of home lol.  With no leak insight, the only thing I could think of was a torn FPR diaphragm or a popped hose inside my fuel tank. This morning on removal of my Radium twin pump hanger, one pump hose was completely shredded and the other was on the verge of the same fate. Both hoses had swelled to double their size... I have no idea how I ended up not using submersible hose but clearly that's what happened. To make things even worst, Radium supplies submersible hose with the hanger... So either they supplied the wrong hose or I had the wrong hose laying around when I assembled it.  Looking over logs, my fuel pressure dropped to 0 roughly 10 seconds after a WOT pull. I was cruising and I'm confident the motors fine. Had that happened 10 seconds earlier, I'd more then likely be pulling the motor out. New hose arrives tomorrow, I'll put it back together then. 
    • Post 2 in this thread is my C34 with a R34 manual console, you can see it is a tiny bit different but not noticeable, and clips straight in. Only issue is you have to move the g sensor a little with the manual console.
    • Welcome to SAU, they really are more fun manual
    • Any pics of that R34 console conversion?  I've been thinking this would be close, but if you have pics, that's easier than going to bother the local guy with an R34. You won't believe this, but I'm building your twin in Florida!
