  1. We all buy offshore made products because they’re cheaper. We all let foreigners (including chinese) buy our homes if they throw in the highest offer. Lots of companies moved manufacture offshore because wages/costs are much lower. Unless much of the population honestly subscribes to the ideal to the point where they are prepared to take a financial hit every time they transact then I’m afraid it’ll remain as is. And unless aussies want to work for third world salaries, how can we match them on price. I absolutely understand the sentiment but money talks. Also remember there are lots of chinese (and UK and US and.....) Australians so just because a chinese looking person buys a property, it does not mean “foreign ownership” necessarily.
  2. Here you go, he says 32 delivered to Aus 2012 Audi R8 Manual quattro MY12 39,000 km Coupe Manual 10cyl 5.2L Petrol Private For more information on this item please visit: https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2012-Audi-R8-Manual-quattro-MY12/SSE-AD-6577594
  3. Haha I’ll challenge any of you to exclude Chinese from the sale of your own house. Plenty of true blue aussies have sold the farm for more $$ than they expected. Just don’t admit it to the boys down the pub 😂
  4. R8 V10 punching above its wieght V10 Lambo = low rent dunno that’s just how it seems
  5. Who knows. I actually don’t wish any ill will on anyone. In the event I’m in a position to capitalise if it comes to that, I probably will pause for thought.......driving around in a super cheap Cadbury RS on the back end of death and disaster is not particularly appealing.
  6. they’ve intrigued me since I was a kid but I imagine bloody expensive to own. Harry’s one getting an engine build, must be eye wateringly expensive. But Uber cool in my book. Still 130k off your mark though 😂 1970 Lamborghini Espada Manual 57,875 km Coupe Manual 12cyl 3.9L Petrol PrivateFor more information on this item please visit:https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/1970-Lamborghini-Espada-Manual/SSE-AD-6030336 Collecting Cars podcast with Harry driving a manual early Murci caught my attention. For me it has to be a V12. Never driven any of them but the later V10s I see as Audi in drag.
  7. Yeah I reckon if it had Vic reg and Roadworthy and A/C it’d be in my garage. I’m generally risk averse and couldn’t be stuffed with engineers and rego issues. In these “stay at home” times it would have been perfect for midday boredom burnouts up the driveway 😂
  8. Cheapest RS so far? $15k price drop to 320k. I do like purple but not so much black rims and yellow calipers. 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS 991 Auto MY16 11,565 km Coupe Automatic 6cyl 4.0L Petrol Dealer UsedFor more information on this item please visit:https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2016-Porsche-911-GT3-RS-991-Auto-MY16/OAG-AD-18484489
  9. I asked Chrisf recently and he confirmed his Qld 944 Ls1 is now sold. Much nicer car than that 928 IMO.
  10. Yuk. Looks shit. Heavily modified. Big power and roll cage but with standard seats. All wrong in my book.
  11. Thought so.....2018 data. Don’t hear anyone criticising those damn Belgians but Chinese at #9, well they are fair game apparently. Which economies invest in Australia? The United States and United Kingdom are the biggest investors in Australia, followed by Belgium, Japan and Hong Kong (SAR of China). China is our ninth largest foreign investor, with 1.8 per cent of the total. However, the levels of Hong Kong (SAR of China) and Chinese investment in Australia have grown significantly over the past decade. https://www.dfat.gov.au/trade/resources/investment-statistics/Pages/statistics-on-who-invests-in-australia
  12. Did you miss this in the article......🤔 At the moment, foreign investors need to apply for approval before purchasing land or assets in Australia if the value is over a certain threshold. All they have done now is removed the threshold. The display home we just sold at 1.7M ish was already required to go through FIRB approval. There are already restrictions such as it must be new, not established and if they buy land, they must build more than 1 dwelling so it adds to building activity and housing stock. That’s what FIRB approval checks for amongst other things. So you can relax...... How so? FIRB approval has been required for years, they just reset the threshold. An offshore buyer simply needs to apply and if FIRB approves, the deal goes through as normal. As it should..... My understanding is there are more offshore buyers from UK and US than China but a little racism never hurt anyone, right......🤔
  13. Wow that Tiger King thing was bizarre. Car crash TV of the highest order. What a weird bunch. Drive to Survive was great again. porsche doco on LeMans and Nürburgring (YouTube) was very good. Ozark next after my wife gets MAFS done.......
