I don't know if this is against the proper etiquette for the Forum, but here goes. I have been away for just over a week and was wondering what had happened with GT522. When I looked at his details profile his signature is now simply “Gone”. I am not trying to create a fuss I was just curious.

Poor Bastard, it seems he got two dud cars in a row, its a wonder he didn't get the shotgun out (figuritively speaking). Like with Mondie, that much money spent and to be treated by FPV and or FMC what joy could you find in the cars anymore. Good For Customer Relations FPV :fly:

I will answer that, its a disgrace that a new car like this has had so much replaced, its the furtherest thing from being original you could get. When I tell people, just ordinary people who know very little about them, what has actualy been done, they are gob smacked, most of them dont believe you, its actualy very embarrasing to say the least. I am going to drop 522 on the market very soon, as it is in a saleable condition, first time since ive had it, test the water at mabey the payout figure, possibly going to do anywhere between $15 to $20k on it, but it will be nice to get rid of the headache.
This may answer some of your questions.

Oh and I beleive the '522 could be sold' thread may have been removed as well.

A shame really, Adrian and Jo were really nice people, he had some bad luck and was treated less than satisfactoraly by FPV, in the end they came to the party, but after some poor treatment by the dealer/dealers. I do feel for him

Hi, I am here very rearly now, just checking P/Ms and a very quick peak at whats happening.
I do notice that my thread has been deleted, I guess you are not allowed to be too negative on here, it seems to get moderated very quickly.
I did decide some weeks ago to stop coming on here due to my inabilty to be objective to what i write, it is very hard to stay posative and upbeat with what has happened to us with these cars. This has been a nightmare, I have NEVER ever had a car like this, if its not one thing, its something else, it was back at the dealer today, I have had to jump start it for three days in a row, so another half day off, go get that fixed, its driving me mad.
With the attacks I was getting on here, and the P/Ms Laminge was getting, I decided enough is enough, so I have withdrawn from here and also the FPVXR club, as my enthusiasm has well and truely killed, I would like to thank FPV for that personly.
On the car front, 522 has a new engine, the oil consumption at this point seems not to bad, used about 500 to 600mls for 2000km, thats good compared to before. 922 has had its week in the dealer, its ok now, still needs a couple of things, oil consumption is still a worry. I will be placing both cars on the market on Monday, I will try and achieve the payout figures, if I cant sell them privately, I will trade them and have to wear big losses, but im at the stage now where I cant wait to get rid of them.
I have been looking for replacements, my car will be a Nissan or Toyota dual cab turbo diesel 4 by 4, put a canopy on it, got a good work truck and off road car, as for the MRS, she will be getting a BMW 318i or a Merc C 180 or 200, they are both great cars, I doubt that we will have issues with either of those types of cars.
I have enjoyed the time on here, most people here are rearly great, I do thank you all for the support through some difficult times, I will stick my head in occassionaly to say gidday, Cam, thanks for those kind words, it does mean something to us, that some people do care. Regards GT 522 and GT 922

Without wanting to start a fight here, can someone perhaps tell us why the other thread was removed? I didnt think it was in breach of any forum rules was it - and people have a right to know all the details of what can happen to their cars.

If Adrian was happy enough to tell us what was going on, what was so wrong with that? Or did FPV perhaps pull a few strings to get it removed to save from getting a bad image? If they did, id say their image just got a whole lot worse!

Here's hoping a lot of people learn from this experience.

I'm not a regular poster in this forum but I was following this story hoping for a happy ending. It's all be said before, but there's just no excuse for this happening in the first place.

Best of luck with the new cars.
