Calenders For Z Kiwis

Happy Chrissy and New Year N.Zedders. I would like to purchase a Zd Roadster Calender for 2011 and find the postage/packaging very expensive to New Zealand.

Worst part is the price of accesories in Oz and Kiwiland. If you want to upgrade with "anything" it costs a huge arm and leg by the time it is converted to our currencies and delivery is added.

Could it be wind noise eminating from the heater/aircon vents on the dashboard, maybe a leaf or similar caught in the vent grill.
You would presume if it was mechanical it would also sound in the lower gears. Or if it is the diff it would be a lower tone. Good hunting.

To my (limited) knowledge there were no RHD versions from the factory.
But there was a converted RHD model highlighted in Australia just recently. All would be a good investment if "enjoyment" was part of your portfolio.

As the rack slopes down at the back, the rail/upstand should be at the back to stop things slipping backwards (down the slope) till they are strapped on. Thats the way I would presume is the right way. (tis on most classics and sports cars anyway). A good buy for someone.
