  1. Amazon Likely To Set Up In Australia

    So im assuming people are aware of the way the the Amazon pricing algorithm works. It hunts the best prices online from other retailers and then applies a discount. Its going to take awhile for it to comb through the Australian online space and set prices accordingly. At the moment its a few opportunistic ebay retailers setting up the Amazon shop. Once the brands on sale have been threatened by the existing channels, expect the prices or products to disappear from the listings. Those small ebay/Amazon sellers have gone under the radar so far, but now that the retail giants are hunting through Amazon and chasing their suppliers, those little online shops will be starved of product or priced out.

  3. 2017 Reliability Surveys ( 0-3 yrs )

    "You can come up with statistics to prove anything, 40% of all people know that" Every time I think about buying an Alfa, an anecdote comes up that makes me run so far in the other direction. Did you hear about the Giulietta owner who returned their car for A pillar squeaks? Turns out the A Pillar wasn't welded to the rest of the body! And isn't there a problem with polarised screens in the Guilia? Then there was that reviewer who couldn't do a lap in the supposed M5 killer, because the electronics kept shutting the car down. http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2017/03/somehow-jalopniks-2017-alfa-romeo-giulia-quadrifoglio-didnt-break-sure-wasnt-exactly-perfect/ I wonder what the % of Alfa owners were in the pool of 14,000 people. Considering the only car of theirs in the entire list is the Giulietta, id say there's not many owners to take a sample from.
  4. Subaru Levorg MY18

    I considered a Levorg as well. Has everything else I was looking for. A smallish wagon with good power and a nice quality interior. I agree with the philosophy of the CVT and what it can mean for both acceleration, performance and economy. I think with Honda, GM and Ford all putting out 10 speed autos next year, the market will eventually realise why a CVT is a really good option. I honestly think they were just ahead of their time and the market wasn't ready. I ended up finding a Volvo V60 for a good price so stepped up a few rungs and went with that. But i still notice the Levorgs when i see them.

    Manual only means sales volume will be halved, maybe even lower than that.

    I was looking at these the other month, before they had their recent price adjustment. The interior is 10 years old, the screen graphics dated terribly. I would pick up one of the earlier HR models because there hasnt been a lot of change since then. These quite often go for $40k as a demo.

    unfortunately the light beams straight into the speaker so its a pain to get right with the camera phone.

    A bit gloomy outside today, so some soothing tunes to help with the hangover

  10. Kia Stinger

    The only thing i don't like about EV is the time it takes to charge. If im on a roadtrip from Adelaide to Melbourne, sure I can stop at the supercharger in Keith, but that still takes 75 minutes to get back to full charge. The technology still isn't there yet for our big empty country

  15. Suzuki Swift Sport

    My Girlfriend has the Vitara Turbo with the 1.4 and the auto. Great car to punt around the city streets in. Good ground clearance and turning circle makes it easy to navigate car parks. Its geared quite well for immediate pickup but runs out of puff quickly. You can feel the lack of torque, It feels like an 8+ second car If they run that setup unchanged in the Swift it should be quite fun but not anywhere near the same league as the Clio RS. The Renault pulls much stronger for much longer and the RS Dual Clutch is a lot better than the Suzuki 6 speed. But the Renault starts pushing $35k, the Swift needs to be $25-$30k for people to look away from the Renault.
