Hi Everyone, I'm a Noob here, Peter from Melbourne.

Recently got a 2005 FRB 182cup.

Past Rides: 2005 Corolla Sportivo (2ZZGE Engine), 2007 Polo Gti Revo Tune, 2008 Mazda 2 Genki. 2005 Mx5 SE.

Of course, the Cup kills all those hatches!

Now I can do mountain runs, without fear of cambelt breakage- I will post IMHO review next month.

 

Cheers,

Peter.

Is this a reference to the belt being recently done ... because they are petty critical in this particular car too.

Thanks kaesh, and everyone, Lots of great info on the forum.

I have the feeling the 182 might be the last of the old school hatches.. it's only a tiny bit bigger than my Daihatsu Sirion, and the 280% extra kilowatts is really handy lol

Welcome Pete!

 

Was this the low-km FRB that was on CarSales recently?

 

Yes it was.

 

DAMN YOUUUUUU.... i was sure to have the 6 numbers come up next lotto :cry:

 

Heheh... oh well. Hoping it is further treated with such quality care.

Enjoy, lucky B------!!!! :wink:

 

Cheers,

WOLF

ps: more pics please (as opposed to the Carsales ones)

Sorry I missed this thread Pete - glad you joined up :D

 

Just to fill everyone in, Pete's a friend of ours. I think he was smitten once I threw him my keys on a Reefton run a while back.

 

Happy motoring matey. I can't wait to see it :)

Oh Yes, that was the day I discovered the "Super Hatch".... Burned that day into my brain... I think IOU 1/3rd of a tank of Fuel from that run!

Thanks Wolf, I'm amazed at the condition....Even My Sister yelled at me for buying a Brand New Car, you should have seen her face when I told her it was a 2005!

Cambelt/Fluids/Tyres all done last month, currently giving the engine a few 'Hot Cycles'. This one is not even fully run-in, evidenced by a beer coloured cat and exhaust manifold. Exhaust mani is now blue, and the cat is half cooked= I think I need a decent Mountain Run soon.

 

Will try to post pics this week.
