Just looking for places to test out my car

There aren't any speed cameras on the highways from Sydney to Canberra. I think there is one on the approach to Canberra, but it's in a built up area.

As Dwayne said, go to a drag strip or race track. That's what they are there for. Why would you want to see how fast you could go on a public road?

Thanks for the replies.

Dragstrip sounds good but how much does each visit cost?

Any roads good for cornering? I forget where but I think in Sydney, there's a national park up north with a good road for driving. Plus there aren't any cameras. I ask this after watching a Top Gear episode about "Driving Heaven" i.e a really good driving location

Thanks again

I've been seeing a few here & there for around the $50k mark for a little while now. Though they're usually the early E46 models &/or high km.

For your model, LED tails should plug straight into the existing harness connectors.

Ditto. Ask for Alky or Eric @ CarWear, top blokes and great customer service.
Word is that they've got a handful of Carbon Fibre products arriving into the shop this week, so why not make the trip down there and check it out in person.
