  1. Every so often, could be a couple of weeks, but this latest time, it's been over two months, it won't start. Key in ignition, warning lights comes on. Sometimes I ring the NRMA, sometimes I just leave it for a while. Two NRMA guys thought it was the starter motor because they had to hit it with a tool but another thought it was the inhibitor (which tells the car it's in Park not Gear?) Once, whilst I was waiting for them to come, the car started again. The bloke came and had a look, started a few times perfectly then it didn't again. (which saved me the loss of face as I'm sure they think I've just left it in gear!) I've taken it back to the (NRMA approved) garage a few times. They did in fact change the starter motor which is still under warranty. They have kept it for couple of days checking it (no charge.) Should I ask them to change the starter motor again? But what if it STILL screws up? Come to think of it the guy told me to keep driving, see if it starts to happen consistently which, of course, it hasn't! I've got a feeling that the garage doesn't feel it's worth the extra work/money for an old car like mine (305,000K) Last night it would not start, rang the NRMA, bloke came out and tried the battery then hit the starter motor. I drove home, turned off the engine, tried to turn on again. Nothing! But, today, started perfectly, tried turning on and off a few times, no problems. Last night was the first time since 10 July! Now, I've got to hang about outside the underground garage for someone to let me in as I left my own security key in the car. (I took it out of my garage and left it in a visitor's parking space - that is NOT allowed!)
  2. Hi all, I'm just about to lodge the import application permit for my 4. I've been in touch with quarantine in Melbourne to see if they have space for them in October and they said they've plenty at the moment but will confirm once I lodge the application. This is probably a very stupid question but what details did any of you put for the importer details? Did you use a friends address or make one up? I've a feeling there's a lot of paperwork coming my way :eek:

So thats the first issue the 2nd is jamies sitting ielts on saturday for the extra points (due to us being sure he wont get the 5 for the qual) and i need to then upload his results which is fine but how do we claim the 25 points when we have done the form already? Should we just upload the results then wait for a case officer to be assigned to explain? Help please many thanks kelly:wubclub:
