Re: Import duty/tax

The original post is now out of date.

The import laws got changed a couple of years ago (thanks very much Gerry Harvey, you worthless turd) so that anything you import is liable for GST. Yes, even that $2.50 widget off eBay. :-(

Re: VIC - Spotted Thread

Saturday April 18th on Scoresby Rd - a blue SportBack with black bonnet & blacked out front badge, after-market rims and seriously lowered.

Didn't see the rego plate, unfortunately.

Re: COVID19 Lancer Prep

I found this fellow's articles to be well written and thought provoking. (And probably a good guide of what NOT to do...) Especially the follow-up article ' The Hammer and The Dance ' where he outlines ways to slowly unwind the lock-down / physical distancing we have in place now. https://medium.com...

Hey there Q...

Things are going OK. Still have a job and a roof over my head, so better off than a lot of people. :cry:

Ferntree Gully Woolworths (Burwood Hwy?) last weekend - silver sedan with vortex generator, rear diffuser (the thing that goes under the bumper), two Mitsubishi logos on the boot (WTF?), and personal plate of 'UWASH' or something similar.

Re: Footwell Lights?

According to the instructions I have for the genuine footwell lights kit, the wire you need to tap into is the "6-pin white connector on the ETACS-CPU" behind / below the glovebox.

If you want to PM me an email address, I can send you the files.

Cheers,

Re: Warning Beeps ?

Hiya, The OBD port is in the driver's footwell. Draw a line straight back and up from the accelerator pedal. Where the line hits the lower edge of the plastic trim (about where your knee / shin goes) is where the port is. Have a feel around with your fingers and you'll find a rectangular hole about ...

How many Kay's on the clock and what kind of $ to fix it


Just on 235,000km and all up (including the tow to the mechanics) $1400. Mechanic said it was more than likely the original chain, too.

Re: 2011 Lancer wont start

For people with the same problem in the future - in my case the timing chain had stretched enough that none of the timing stuff lined up.

Got the chain, tensioner, tensioner slipper replaced and it's as good as new. :-)

Did you find out what the problem was? My '09 VRX has just done something very similar.

Re: VIC - Spotted Thread

Spotted a few times near my new place: * A blue/grey CJ with a plate that reads as "BATMAN" - it's really something like BATMN-5, with a few Batman stickers. * A black CJ RalliArt SportBack * A red VRX SportBack with a big sticker on the rear window (sort of like 2 interlinked circles) * A...
