^ looks like an insurance job - not on WOVR possibly because the claim was pulled prior to insurance making their judgement.

Then again, could be anything

My Ride: 2000 323i
Hey guys i'm new to this forum but to be honest i've been lurking a lot. I just acquired my first car a BMW 2000 323i with high mileage as a hand me down from my uncle. Very well looked after and tidy car (to my understanding cooling system, suspension bushings, shockers, fuelpump all got replaced 20k kms ago). Do you guys ever do meetups in Melbourne? I would like to learn more about these cars and become an active member in this community.

Anyway what are some tasteful modifications I can do to my car? its silver and has these e46 m3 style wheels (probably replicas lel)
Preferably no performance mods (other then drop in filter) too much money for such little gain.

Best parts place is Clickable Automotive. Lucas is great to deal with and has great prices too with decent postage prices and times.

(Bored) sitting at Toyota service centre for the second recall on my Yaris... Seat rails this time, window switches last year.
Cheap POS! Just got told it's going to take 2+ hours (by some apprentice no doubt) to swap in updated rails.
Wish they'd give them to me so I could DIY at home.

Bahaha! I feel your pain! I drive these Yaris things for work and yes, they really are a cheap POS!! Once they get 100,000km on the clock they literally start falling apart, eg the engine makes some loud vibrating noises at idle and it wasn't just the one car either, all Yarises in the fleet I drove that had over 100,000km made these noises. Didn't instill me with a great deal of confidence driving them over longer distances. I wouldn't buy one for my daughter's first car.

You bring up another point.. What's the real ozzie plural for Yaris?
Yarises
Yaries
Yarisie
Lol who'd be stupid enough to own more than 1 hey? Lol.

They only changed the drivers side rails. Left me in the business centre for 2.5 hours on 0.8Mb wifi with unlimited ash flavoured coffee.
I guess the upside was it was quiet in the business centre as the majority of customers waiting were seniors and couldn't make it up the stairs.
In saying that, being the only one or few on the free wifi it was too slow to stream Miss Teen Colorado's vid from the OT section. Major disappointment on the having a fap at the Toyota service centre front. lol
