@ InsanateePrawn:
Haha, that was when I was purposely doing a few loops (northshore --> helensville --> westgate ---> ponsonby --> northshore) to complete engine break-in.
Managed to cover 1,200km in 2 days. It was painful since the "N" button was right there but I forced myself to stick to "Normal" mode and below 3000rpm.
Damn! and I thought my 2 weeks to and from work in "Eco" was quick!

Are you on the Shore too? - I went to North Harbour Hyundai to test drive a Performance Blue N but they sold it within the 2 hours of me calling to actually getting in to see it after work. Ended up getting my red one from Manukau a day later. - Almost wondering now if that was yours haha.

Keen for a coffee meet up at the beach sometime too, Rothesay Bay is good for parking up and there's a great coffee place up the road (not biased because it's my local).

@ Hey InsanateePrawn, haha.
Yup, I am also from the North shore.
I think that was somebody else`s Performace Blue.
On the day I picked up my N, I also saw another Performance Blue at the yard but without a number plate.
I put my deposit in April and it had been such a long wait until I finally got my hands on the N in early October.

That sounds great. I am available on this Sunday and anytime during following weekends.
Would you guys be available on this Sunday? Or anytime from next weekend is all fine with me.

Let us know the name of the coffee place and i am more than happy to come and see you guys.
Let`s also take a nice group "N" photos and show off to our cousins in Aus haha.

I believe 'cuzzie-bros' is the correct terminology ;)

@car rally, sorry for the delay in response.
I just came back from an urgent business trip and I was unable to check the forum.

I think I have to push back the coffee meetup to January due to this unforseen works need to be done before the year end. Sorry!

I saw you this morninng around 7am when I was driving to my work. My "N" sensor was telling me that another "N" was within 100m range from my position haha.
A red "N" heading to Mairangi Bay, it must be you haha.
Great looking Engine Red "N".

Haha... You'd be right! You'll usually see me zipping all over the place... I'm surprised my neighbours haven't complained, the N even in normal mode is substantially louder than my SS-V was o_O

Toot and wave like a madman next time you see me, I'll be sure to notice then :D

Next time, I will wave like a mad tiger haha.
Nice selection of toys you have.
I really liked VF SS-V`s bi-modal exhaust note when we borrowed a benchmark car for a local suspension tune on its 3.3L TwinTurbo Korean rival :cool:
