    I've seen Lord of the Rings and Whale Rider and I know they are shot in NZ. So I guess it's the movies that are giving me a positive feedback on NZ....

    <font face="Arial">you got a honda integra don't you? 29mpg is pretty good for a car like that!

    </font><font face="Arial">the prius is the biggest rip off on the planet! my car is just as economical! theres a 1.4tdi VW over here that does 70mpg. the best a prius did in a test for one of our car magazines was 40mpg combined cycle.</font>

    Yeah, I have the integra, unfortunately it only takes premium so I have to pay the most at the pump.

    Yeah, the prius and all these other half electric cars should be giving us 100mpg, not 35mpg or whatever it is...plus you pay more because it's a hybrid...

    Your car isn't even marketed over here, makes you wonder what is going on right??

    But yeah it does have an Aston Martin look to it....i think it looks nice, what's the HP on that thing?

    <font face="Arial">it's a very nice car. it's a small engine in mine, but i don't mind going slow. it is however a ltd edition body kit and wheels. Fiat used to have a rep for being unreliable but they sorted their problems now. i pay about 150 a month for it. so thats about $300 i think. over 5 years. cars are pricey over here, it sucks.</font>
