I've got a property in Ipswich that I expect to wash away unfortunately.

And after all this is all my fault!

My son, Noah, was born on 28 October. It hasn't bloody stopped raining since!

Cheers

Haha I was gonna give you a buzz but I didnt want to stop any family attempts just in case it was dire. Its not good to hear about the house in Ipswich or your office for that matter.. Looks like it will be a while till I get up there with this weather. I tell you what looking at photos Noah its almost a fair trade I think (discounting obviously the loss of life my condolences to the family).

Good to hear its all good!

For anyone interested they are comparing it to the flood of 1974 well here is a map of where that covered

Best wishes everyone.

My mate lives in Brisbane somewhere and drives trucks for a living. He's loading up in Melbourne at the moment and was just saying how he's going to have to navigate all over NSW then somehow back through Qld just to get home. Luckily his family and house are safe at the moment.

+1 sorry I missed it. Just buy a new carrier bracket (under $50) and pop it back in.

What's the ride height difference for an 01 sedan between factory M-sport suspension and regular suspension?

Is there a good way to tell whether you have sports or standard suspension?

There's standard, sports and M sport suspension. I think all the coupes came with Sports standard.

Royal National Park. I was keen as mustard to drive down straight after the Homebush meet... but food triumphed that night.

If you want to hit it up on the drive back, I may suggest the following route:


And take this road back (between C and D to get onto Hume HWY)


Google maps route: link
It should only add about an hour or two on top of the drive down. But 110% worth it!! DO EET
