  1. G'day all. :) Got a quick question for you all. I've come across an opportunity to pick up a near complete interior from a SV40 Aurion Sportivo and really all i'm interested in is the seats (guessing door cards won't fit because the door sizes are different etc between the CV30 and SV40 specifically). So I'm wondering if anyone has any insight as to whether the Aurions leather electric seats would be direct bolt-in on the Camry Sportivo's floor? The back seat would be a whole different story I'd believe potentially, but if it works so much the better! I swear I've se
  2. G'day everyone! Never thought after many years I'd be back behind the wheel of a Toyota but what do you know it's all come full circle. After having a gold 2007 Aurion Sportivo ZR6 for a few years. Old Members Ride Here! I said farewell to the TOCAU community and since then I'd gone down the european path with a Mk5 Golf GTI, then down the Subaru owners path with a 2005 Liberty Sedan and now since all those cars became money pits. I'm back to good 'ol reliable town with a 2005 Camry Sportivo MCV36R! It's good to be back behind the wheel of a Toyota once more! :D Bought in March 2018.
  3. I think you read wrong, or I wrote it wrong. It's almost due for said service, silly me didn't pick up on it at the time. It's not an issue as I expected high servicing costs. (I know the 60k is especially high due to the DSG service) So that will be all good and get done soon, then tax time will come and we'll be looking at some stuff I reckon. :) I do have some photos. I'll put one up here now just to show since I don't have much time right now. So here's one.
  4. Basically it was the gearbox, my car while it was serviced and maintained regularly. It was driven pretty hard, pretty much every day it would get a full run on a mountain road near my place on the way home from work. Suspension, Steering, Drive-train, Gearbox all got a workout. While the dealership I always got the car serviced at said it was in great condition for what it did (a mate worked at this dealership so he knew the cars history), it was just bad luck for the gearbox to go when it did. Another member on TOCAU had a similar issue where he was quoted an exuberant amount of money to hav
  5. Oh wow! I had no idea anyone actually responded. (I wish there was an option to receive notifications when people reply to the thread by default instead of having to manually set it for each thread you post on. Strange!) Yeah Trent it's a bit of a sad story in regards to that. I think that was a real common ground to how Tash and I became mates too haha. :P (Not only that but yeah, they were called the Gold Cousins after all. heh.) Don't worry Daryl, I ain't going anywhere. I'll be sticking around for the most part, then again I haven't been hanging around much anyway. Too much life stuff ge
  6. If it's just some bowling at the AMF in watergardens I might go. :P Don't look at me for laser skirmish though. Can't stand it lol. I guess i'm a maybe so far. :P
  7. This probably isn't in the right place but eh. :P Hey guys and girls. I know I haven't been on here much in the past year or so but a lot has gone on, anyway that's beside the point. I'm sure some of you remember me. :P On Tuesday I said goodbye to my Aurora Gold Aurion Sportivo ZR6. At 130,000kms, the Aurion began to show multiple signs of wear, things started to go wrong fairly quickly at the same time. Driveshaft boots went, intermediate shaft spline worn, the gearbox decided it didn't like me much either. It was a great car and i'll never forget all the fun it gave me, all the TOCAU cruise
  8. Nah I wasn't out that way on Friday. Went for a huge cruise on Saturday but that's about it. :P
  9. I went the Phillip Island recently and spotted a nice Blue Levin SX. :P Didn't get any photos though! Pretty much followed it the entire way to Phillip Island. ;)
  10. I've been sitting here for 10 minutes now comparing three photos. The 'photoshop', the photo from page 15 of when you got the wheels/tyres and a photo of my own gold aurion to try and spot a difference between the photoshop and the other two. It's got me beat! Are you sure there's a change?
  11. I tend to get around 600km per tank. I use BP Ultimate 98 and have done since I got the car at 33,000km. I agree with Daryl regarding the octane rating and the fact it doesn't really improve your economy at all really. I just use it because well, piece of mind I guess. Mind you I drive around 80km per day and 70 of that is freeway/highway driving, hence where the 600km figure comes from. But that doesn't usually stick depending if I decide to go on a spirited drive or not.
  12. I have to agree with Tash on this one. I thought the attendance on this would be quite large considering it's something different from the norm ya know? Oh well. No biggie. :) Just means i don't have to spend as much money this weekend lol.
  13. It has already been done by someone in the Albury/Wodonga area (NSW/VIC boarder), back in around 2008. It has also been done in the US before also. What do you sell? Oh well there ya go, here I am thinking you were the first person haha. I don't sell anything, I'm just saying I might sell stuff one day to start a project, who knows!
  14. I was laying in bed last night thinking what it would be like if I could somehow show everyone that it's possible to install a turbo onto a ZR6. But I knew it 'd be too expensive, now look what I find hahaha. :) Haven't sold anything yet... But you never know!
