    i use Yahoo Japan Auctions

    which you can pretty much browse through import monster, but import monster have heigher fees and slower service.

    I use google translate to translate all the Jap pages and use Jesse Streeter to buy stuff from YJ.

    There is a nice set of Eurolines on there right now in 18x10.5 -3 and 18x12 -1 for about $1200 delivered

    That would fit on the Camry

    Wow that's cheap. But it wouldn't fit. Anything fatter than 9.5 will hit the strut. Need to ask Indomi how he fit the eurolines on his old camry back then. Thanks for the suggestion bro

    are you sure, coz they are quiet low offset, so they would probably sit mexican as rather then hit the strut

    what it the highest offset you can run on say a 9" wide wheel before you hit the strut?

    I heard of 9.5 + 20-25 in the rear would be perfectly hellaflush. Front 8.5 +35. but I hear some people attempting +15 before with a lot of rubbing to the point where it hits the bolt holding the bumper in place and shredding away the side walls of the tyres. Not for me IMO since I daily this car.

    You forgot:

    3) You can get your car stolen in broad daylight with cameras and security everywhere and conveniently no one sees a thing!

    crown doesn't monitor the carpark. anything that happens outside the casino itself, they don't want anything to do with. I work there as a sparky and get free parking also sick day today lol

    hmm ok maybe they do then ^^^

    This is the carpark directly under crown. Not sure about the carpark near maccas and kfc though

    Are you able to go on the gambling floor even though your a sparky there?

    I don't work directly for crown, I work for EPM+C who do a lot of the electrical contracts/maintenance within the casino. I do a fair bit of work on the gaming floor. I have my gaming license too so I can do work in and around the tables etc.

    Holly crap Vic roads pulled over about 4 cars and a truck on westall rd. Prob for a random rwc check. I've even heard they call random cars to check rwc. A shop down the road told us he got a warning and Vic roads checked EVERYTHING! Even the slightest split in bushes. Think they are going abit too far this time.

    its more for workshops that give dodgys. That shop down the street has 1 more warning after that is a heavy fine and they lose there roadworthy licence. its been around for a while but this year they have checked alot of shops even ours! (but we ok) only had to recalibrate our brake tester.XD

    Oh wow. I thought they just picked up any random rego in their database and gave you a call so they could check for roadys. They are really cracking down aye. I know in my area a couple of weeks ago they were stopping cars at a major intersection during peak hour just to check for roadys

    hha funny i am reading this now. I literally just went out and checked the mail....... I found a shiny letter from Williamstown police station saying that I was spotted driving on 'x' road and 'x' time by 'x' police officer and was scene to be in an 'un-roadworthy' state. I must now report to Williamstown police station this sat at 11:45 am for a full inspection .................

    I called him up to re-schedule, because it is the same day as 'parklife' and he said it can't be re-scheduled because they have 'vicroads' and EPA representatives booked for the whole day. He said they are starting checking cars at 9am that morning. I asked how many cars and he said he couldn't tell me exact numbers but there are a few.

    I am seriously considering just canceling my rego and keeping my car for a while as a track only/permit only driver for a few months. I could change it all back to stock no worries in a few days except for the engine number which doesn't match my rego sticker. (no engineers) no matter how stock the car will be, if they check the engine number (which i assume they will def do) i am screwed...............

    Gameover for me i think
