Just thought id let everyone know the scene in Newcastle has taken a big hit. Cops are not even bothering to pull people over now, they just send your licence details to the DECC and instruct you to attend the workshop at Redhead. Even modifying your car to pass then re-modifying it can land you in hot water as your car is extensively photographed and if caught changing the car back will result in fines/loss of points/licence.

My friend got breath tested the other day, cops wrote the plate down and today got issued with a notice to attend.

Wow. They are really hitting hard with the modified cars. I wonder are they still targetting only Jap cars or Modified Australian cars too like XR6 turbos.

My friends car was a mildly modified late model SS Commodore and he's quite a sensible mature driver.

What a load of crap!!

There are Drug Dealers everywhere, paedophiles, rapists and murderers but lets concentrate on fining people with a pod filter or a lowered car or a sports exhaust. This will clean up ALL the problems of soceity as they are HUUUUGE problems that could result in Armageddon.

Stands and applaudes the NSW government, you clearly have the priorirties in order.

You guys in newy got it easy compared to us in sydney

sydneys getting worse

saturday night i got pulled over into a parking lot , a copper asked me if i have BOV's i told him GTRS come standard with BOV'S he said no they dont and its a defect , Obviously no clue there i dont want to go into detail what else happened they tried so many different things but i just replied in a polite matter and was smarter then them . they let me go in the end .

Last night was with my brother in his Evo 9 ( BONE STOCK ) at brighton , He got defected for having a aftermarket gear knob and they told him his number plate at the front shouldnt be on the side when thats how they come from the factory .

anyone else got any stories i got so much more ......

hope I don't jinx myself ...but in 2 years of owning an R34 I've been pulled over twice .. once for speeding, copped a fine and that's it. Other time I was just curising at like 1 AM in side streets and they wanted to check my license and let me go righ away...

I've been through RBTs a couple of times atleast and was never asked anything about the car or mods. I've seen plenty of cop cars drive past me in both directions and was never pulled over for just driving a skyline. And they could easily use my dark tits as an excuse..

So I think it's a combination of WHERE in Sydney you live and how modified your car is ie. loud exhaust, atmo BOVs etc will always be a cop magnet. There's a big difference if if you're curising around Glebe or around Bankstown. I think the coppers around here are already used to seeing me and know I'm a local so don't bother to pull me over.

it's bogan central that's why .. cops are too. Also due to the high number of idiots in the far west in general, I'd say that's why they're more heavy handed...as they probably deal with speeding dickheads everyday.

Is that your engine bay photo in your Display Picture? What else did they try and get you on?

I live in Bankstown and have owned my GTR for 2 years. Not once have i been pulled over, looked at twice or anything. Pretty heavily modified too. A bloke from work was saying that on Friday night the coppers down Malabar way were pulling anything and everything over and going to town on them. Pretty scary!

Piggaz na not my engine bay its my old engine bay on my old gtr ,

they told me i need a engineers certificate for all my mods , i told them go ahead open the engine bay , ( my engine bay looks bone stock ) but like yours is heavily modified , but i keep the standard look as its better in terms of cops especially when you live in bankstown which i do . they opened up the bay and said yeh its pretty stock not knowing the cars worked but insisted my car is too low , that i admit its like 6cms off the ground and said my exsaust is too loud , but other then that they couldnt really do much ,they ask alot of questions but they got no clue , they cant see things like turbos , cams , etc , if you got a stock bay ? so i guess i got lucky .

true what you say so many cops around its not funny , and i know there is a cop driving around in a r32 gtr and its white so people be careful .

Ahh. A white R32 GTR. Interesting. Pretty funny about the BOV's though. I suppose we could almost get away with saying 'no we dont have them' if they are the stock items!

On side note. Im surprised i havent seen you floating around here. (in the R34 that is)

    • New R34 owned here (from the US) and found a gem, '98 GTT with ~6k miles, super clean & completely stock. When shifting there's no grinding, shifts smooth, etc. The concern I have are 2 things: 1) Only in 2nd and 3rd... when maintaining a slower speed (in traffic as an example) as I let off/on the gas, the shifter will slightly move and vibrate. If the clutch is engaged, none of this happens. It's not bad, but enough to feel like something isn't necessarily right. 2) This mainly happen in 4th or 5th... the shifter slightly bounces up and down, almost like it's riding on unbalanced tires (and I do think the tires are unbalanced as I get a little of that bounce feel at higher speeds, which is maybe why it only happens in 4th/5th). Lastly, and sorry for this noob question but I want to work on this car myself, can someone teach me some on these manual transmissions? Like servicing them, best products to use, etc.; would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
    • Coilovers aren't even the first step. Bushes, subframe position and alignment, HICAS elimination, adjustable upper arms and traction arms in order to dial out understeer. All these things need/deserve attention first. ARBs (There's no such thing as a swaybar. Please, everybody, stop calling them that) are useful if you want to limit spring stiffness. Otherwise you can control body roll with springs. Spring and damper rates are a function of road surface, speed and usage. There is no solution that works for all cases.
    • Define "nothing". Is the starter spinning but not the engine? Engine turning but not firing? If the engine is turning but not firing, then you are missing either fuel or spark. You need to find whichever has gone missing.
    • Shitbox Tiguan updates, got the APR OTS tune put back on (no charge for it to be removed/added back), didn't want to just come in just for that (not a fan of wasting people's time for nothing) so I purchased an APR dog bone insert. The boys at German Performance Garage said they would fit it for free too since they had 1x hoist free. Now that's service you don't normally get from most workshops. Anyhow, tune back on, snow grate pulled out, dog bone insert back in and not going to lie, a few smiles when I nailed it around the industrial area heading back onto the M7. Amayama also said 1 to 2.5 month wait for the RB25DE heater hose, yeah why not, car has been off the road for nearly 3, what's a other 2.5?
    • Hmm I'm going to approach this from the other side... What is the car doing that you don't like or what would you like the car to do that is currently isn't doing (handling wise that is)
