    People driving with no lights on in thick fog.

    If having fog lights on during a sunny day is stupid (hint: it is) then how stupid is no lights in <50m visibility?? bah!

    gotta laugh at some of them though.
    was 5:30 this morn and behind this fella who in thick fog decides to put his high beams on.
    must have blinded themselves because those high beams came off pretty quickly :p

    When the guy at Repco tells you the VT 304 doesn't have a TPS.
    What the hell am I replacing then.

    Finally convinced him.

    They also told me that a 304 doesn't use an oil pickup gasket...

    Then I went to holden and ordered one for $3.80

    The big fat discount for having a Repco VIP club card or a RACQ card makes it worth going there for basic parts and oils etc. Obviously you just don't ask their advice on anything. But far out they hire some rude pricks to work there.

    I wouldn't even go there for the discounts. Their parts are cheap, their tools are cheap. EVERYTHING IS CHEAP at Repco.

    It's also Rip Every Poor C### Off.

    My main place is Autobarn which is a town over. But they're ones that have most parts that are reasonable and the guys know their ****.
    Or its Bursons...

    i bought some paint at repco last week, engine enamel, holden red was $7.50 a can and chev red/orange was $17.00 a can, WTF! same brands same amount just the orange is a more popular colour so its more than double the price (same with the black)
    but a 20% off for july with NRMA makes it cheaper than anywhere else

    When you fit a new MAP sensor, forget to attach the vacuum hose :doh: and
    wonder why the hell the damn idle is all over the place.

    Not the thing you'd want to admit to.....But hey, wtf, no one knows me.

    monkey, I've noticed the same thing too. Looked at pretty much every store to see if they have one. None at all. Not even price tag thingy on the shelves anymore.

    Trucks that cut you off forcing you to brake hard then proceed to do 20-30 under the limit.

    I all way used Traralgon Autobarn when I lived down in the Valley , the staff always go out of there way to help you out , and always give you good prices.

    Does Chris and his wife still own it ? they were very nice owners all ways looked after me in the day.
