Hi from New Zealand

Postby softlad » Thu Oct 25, 2012 9:58 am

Just got myself a ZX Volcane TD to have a play with, unfortunately its a 5 door version but with such a small choice you take what you can get.
I'm 8 years out from leaving the UK and haven't regreted a second since leaving.
Had mainly VW mk2 golfs since I got here but recently changed the menu a bit with a Suzuki cultus Gti (Swift with more power) which was my daily before the gearbox (very fragile) gave up, on the list to fix.
Family transport is a Volvo 850R, we also have a Fiat Punto which is the misses.
When we left the UK we left behind a Passat V6TDi wagon and a modified new Mini Cooper but theres always been an eclectic mix with mk1 Golf Clipper convertable,Peugeot 305 champagne gold with a beige interior( bought for 100pound with a blown head gasket) never missed a beat always started. 3 door ZX Volcane TD, and a brand new Saxo VTR, Fiat Punto GT.
So Hi to all

Welcome Softlad :-D

I'm now 20 years away from last having lived in Australia. Worst decision ever to have ever returned to the UK. Still miss the place :(

So don't you ever think about returning :lol:

I have no intentions of returning to the UK, I'm sorry to say.
I took a 50% pay cut working but the benefits for the family are massive, I have no worries about letting my son go out
I don't avoid contact with stangers I pass in the street.
Its not paradise perfect but its fun living
