Is it just me or are Camry drivers the worst in all of Chrisndom?

Do you paint the engine parts different colours so you can tell what parts go wrong in the future?

Go see Max Instruments @ Archerfield. They have VDO gauges that are very reasonably priced, and from what i've read they are very accurate, just don't have the street cred of other brands like Autometer. That said, they're far better than anythign from Supercheap.
The phone number is 32753066, and they are located at 17 Rodwell Street.
