    Default Hello all

    I'm in.
    I finally am the new owner of the car I've always wanted.
    After a stressful few months scrolling through carsales website every 5 minutes I finally found my new girl.
    I had begun to think that what i was looking for no longer existed.
    Requirements where.....
    Mps 6 leather pack. Stock. Any year so long as it was white with low k's.
    Early one morning last week one popped up in carsales. No picture yet.
    Straight onto the dealer.
    He gave me a quick rundown over the phone.
    Mods - no.
    Scratch and Dents - minimal.
    Interior - perfect.
    48000 k's.
    2005 model.
    Pearl white.
    Minimal gutter rash.
    New yokohama tread all round.
    55 + year old one owner car. Traded for skyline GTR.
    Full service history.
    I couldnt believe it.
    Deposit down.
    1 hitch.
    Cars in Sydney, I'm in Melbourne.
    Spoke to the wife, cried a little bit, got an inspection. Came back perfect.
    Cried a bit more to the wife.
    Booked a flight.
    Still hadnt seen any pictures yet.
    Didnt sleep the night before could i have just wasted $300 on inspection and $400 on last minute flight.
    Arrived at dealer.
    There it was. It seemed to have a halo of light around it. I think I could almost hear it calling me to it.
    PERFECT.
    Looked like brand new.
    Absolutely blew me away.
    Took it for a drive.
    PERFECT.
    Laid down the cash straight away. This girl is coming home with me to Melbourne.
    Onto the highway. 6th gear cruise control at 120 kph.
    Home in 8 hours. Trip computer showed average fuel of 8.9 ltr / 100 klm.
    Very happy with this figure.
    No probs with the trip bar the 100000 locusts i cleaned up on Melbourne side of Albury. Woke up early next morning, straight to carwash. All traces of locusts gone.
    Am very happy with my new girl.
    Would like to thank all forum users for the information within these pages. Have been a great guide and carry all the answers to all my questions i have had. Looking forward to catching up with other Melbourne members.
    Thanks for letting me be part of the club.

    Thanks duglet.
    Mods.
    Had originally thought i would play around with the exhaust. Maybe corksport system. But after picking her up I am more than satisfied with the note and power on the stock system.
    Maybe in a few months when I'm used to the power and am more familiar with her I could be looking for a bit more go that corksport exhaust could give.
    Only other thing would be ipod cable. Who owns cd's anymore.
    Will put up a pic soon. Car still a little dirty after long trip from nsw to vic.

    o.k. quick pics of my girl.
    As I said stock as a rock.
    Little dirty. No haters. 2 kids and a long trip form syd - melb leaves little time over last few days.
    Will have it clean for first vic cruise.
    Any vic members would be great to catch up. Anything happening in near future???

    Congrats Sandman, great story

    Welcome also.

    Not much going on at the moment in terms of events here in Melb, but we'll probably have an impromptu car wash meetup in the next couple of weeks

    Thanks for the welcome.
    Living in the northern suburbs around Epping.
    Driving feels fun again in this car. Not just an A - B journey anymore.
    Congrats on your purchase. Which part of town you from?
    Would be great to catch up with someone else with a bit of prior knowledge.
    Never had a 6 speed manual or turbo before.

    Welcome and congrats on the purchase, its a great story and glad your wife was understanding

    Car looks great and sounds like you got yourself a good deal there, bet you had a fun drive back to Melbourne.

    Ive nearly had mine 4 years now and love it more and more each day, I never tire of driving it and like you said driving a car like this totally gets rid of the A- B for the sake of it, you drive everywhere cause you love it
    Taken my boring, bland, lame Subaru and my fat ass and driven off into the sunset with a smile on my face

    Did you cry or the wife? I would have cried trying to get hold of that beast...I am a bit of a wuss though.

    Congrats on the white. Hopefully the new MPS3 will be in white this year.
