    VZ W/ Alloytec or Something W/ Ecotec for first car?

    Yeah wow, didn't notice that. Maybe the owner is driving it like he always wanted to given it's for sale....as far as the price goes it's probably a good buy at $10k given the low kms.

    VZ W/ Alloytec or Something W/ Ecotec for first car?

    My choice would be something like this. A well maintained super6 VYII Calais. (Depending on your licencing requirements of course) https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2003-holden-calais-vy-ii-auto/SSE-AD-6801360/?Cr=3

    Corvette DOA?

    Yep, id shell out for a W1 instead..$200k opens the door to a lot of other cracking cars as well.. bingo.

    Corvette DOA?

    Yeah, Probably a poor choice of words in hindsight. But it certainly doesn’t instil a great degree of confidence that it will all go ahead smoothly. Particularly given GM’s history… Couple that with the current Global environment, and something in my gut tells me that all is not well. I hope I...

    So VS's are rising in costs now ?

    No way on Earth is that a 124k km car. It's been wound back or had the cluster swapped at some point.

    Tyre Pressures that everyone uses

    Regardless of the type of oil? Huh? We're talking engine oil here, not transmission fluid. Remember - you're the one who posted this: and then you go and pull a transmission dipstick.......right........ Engine oil dipsticks aren't marked hot/cold, they are marked min/max or similar. some...

    I think you'd better re-think your picture..as per my above post (#17), that's a transmission dipstick..

    That's a transmission fluid dipstick..oil isn't red..

    Tyre Pressures that everyone uses

    Because that's easier for people to understand than "engine running" and 'Engine stopped" (and easier to fit on the dipstick too). When it's 'hot' (or in fact running at all), the oil is drawn up into the top end where it does it's thing and when it's 'cold' (ie turned off) it sinks back down...

    Tyre Pressures that everyone uses

    The only time engine oil level on a dipstick changes with temperature is if the car hasn't been driven for quite a while and the oil is diluted with condensation etc. Then, the first time it is given a good run, the water and contaminants will evaporate, lowering the level a little. The level...

    VF Ute "New Car Replacement" value

    That’s why I mentioned looking at the actual price increase over the model run to give an indicative value. Insurance companies pay a shedload to actuaries to avoid having to pull figures out of the sky. It all has to be based on evidence of some sort. I’d still be surprised if the OP gets more...

    VF Ute "New Car Replacement" value

    If they were still making them, and selling them new for around $40k, do you reckon a 2016 one would be worth $50k?

    VF Ute "New Car Replacement" value

    Thinking about it, I think the absolute best case scenario would be to ascertain the RRP increase over the entire model run of that vehicle from 2013-2017 and work out a projected new car value for a hypothetical 2020 model of the identical specifications Edit - just noticed it was a black...
