Re: WK2 DownUnder

Ok thanks. It's my wife's daily driver, she does allot of city driving.
I have it weekends.
This is bizarre, they know better. I'll have a chat to them when I pick it up

Any chance you have the Bosch part number for this? I'm working on a project where I could use the exact specs for this part.

Cheers,

My girlfriend asked why there's a golf club on the roof of your car ;-)

Thats me.
The folding aerial oscillates at highway speed when up. Tried a fin on top made from foam and tape works well no more weird vibrations and noise in the car.
Surprised it was clean.

No, they're a bit different. They're the Bushwacker flares. ~$900 from Uneek 4x4.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Big storm today in Brisbane, I saw green clouds and thrashed the Jeep to get home before the hail. The wife got home a bit later, every panel on her renault is dented.....

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Man you Queenslanders are screwing our insurance premiums!

Joking Benno. Lucky the Jeep is safe... I wouldn't wish hail damage on any car.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Ouch! Benn0. Insurance?

I nearly copped it in the KL the other day. Saw the clouds, thought that doesn't look good - BOM had published a severe storm warning. Made it home within 10 minutes and then it pelted down small rocks.

Nov/early Dec is particularly bad for hail storms in the area we are in and it always happens around school pick-up time - Always!.

Hope you can get the Renault fixed up without too much financial pain.

Benn0 Are you also on whirlpool? Them Prado lovers.

Btw. The pdr guys do a really good job with hail. I cant believe they got out about 100 tiny dings from my bonnet. Essentially my car was with them for a couple weeks. Feels good to not have a beater respray.

Lancom, swear I've seen you in Ellenbrook.
