Plus I got a further four cents per litre off courtesy of a Collingwood Footy Club membership. is there...

    What is the matter with some people?

    I was in Wonnangatta the other day and some idiot has driven off the defined track right past a sign with a notice stating that a $2,000 fine is applicable for doing exactly that. These morons go and ruin it for the rest of us. Pull your heads in if any of you idiots responsible for this sort of...

    Water Leak in Mitsubishi Challenger?

    My son sent me these pics from his Challenger today and I suspect a water leak to state the obvious! The reservoir was nearly empty. I’m wondering if it would be just a case of replacing the hose or could it be something more sinister? It’s a 2011 model with the 2.5 diesel. Also, any...

    Nissan GU Patrol Winch Bar For Sale

    I have just upgraded to an ARB bar and have a Nissan winch bar for sale. It has come off a 2002 Y61. Everything is together and should just bolt on (bolts and nuts etc not included). A bit of a paint and a scrub will have it looking pretty good. There is just one area on the top that could be...

    Driving Lights on Mitsubishi Challenger

    I'm looking at putting some driving lights on a 2011 Mitsubishi Challenger. I'm wondering if they would be detrimental to the cooling system and if I would be better off with a light bar? Any thoughts? Thanks.

    Google Maps VS GPS Navigation

    So it’s time to upgrade the CD/cassette player in the truck to something a bit more modern. Having only used GPS navigators, I’m wondering what the user experience that people have found with Google Maps is like? I’m tossing up whether to get a head unit with just Apple Play instead of installed...

    Swag or Tent

    I have a double swag but feel that it’s too big to take away now (I don’t have a roof rack). I’m toying with the idea of either purchasing a single swag or a one man hiking tent with inflatable mattress for a trip to the outback shortly. I like the idea of the latter due to weight and size. With...

    Ipads and the law

    I heard today that some drivers have been pulled up by police for having an Ipad in the front of the car (not windscreen mounted). It seems that they are interpreting the law that states that you are to have no video displayed whilst driving, even if it is only showing a map as the potential is...

    Best Way to Dry Wet Carpet

    Unfortunately I got stuck on a bog hole at Toolangi yesterday and it was bit too deep resulting in water entering the car. I now have the carpets out having washed them and they are hanging up outside drip drying. With the forecast weather in Melbourne over the weekend, I reckon it could take...

    Does anyone know of any 1:100,000 maps of the NT (Tanami region) suitable for an iPad? I had a look at the Apps store but it came up with nothing.

    GU Steps

    I manage to mangle one of my original Nissan steps as well as doing a little bit of panel damage on the sills. Any recommendations on steps? I have looked at ARB and Raslarr. They are both the same price and look petty much the same. Any pics would also be appreciated. Thanks.

    Ios 8

    I have an Ipad 2 and got the notification that there was a software update so naturally loaded IOS 8. BIG MISTAKE!!!! The Ipad freezes, is slow and laggy now. I was thinking of taking it to an Apple shop but my experiences there have given me the impression that not only do the employees look...
