Mate won a ride so i got to see it today.

Is winning a ride in a taxi like winning an item on eBay?

Think your mates definition of winning is different to the dictionary lol.

Did the driver say how they are race brakes? From stock standard they are pretty much race brakes anyway, or does he have more race like brake pads because in photos the brake calipers look stock
You can say I'm wrong, but my garage doesn't agree with that statement!!!

Also my fb updated has a lot of people talking about it... Half the girls are calling it a Ferrari or a Nissan, and a lot o the people are missing the advertising on it. It's clear to us what it is and what it's for, but my fb is full of people in the target market for NFS and a lot of them are not noticing te advertisement on the car for some reason.

Probably, but he won it through top gear Aus so he didn't have to pay for it.

When i asked about the brakes he said they were carbon ceramic race brakes.

Don't look like Carbon Ceramic to me... Looks just like the disc has been replaced with a normal brake disc with pretty paterns in it. Probably an Ebay job.

Looks like he liked smashing into a taxi so much that he then became a taxi...

that explains why it was worth 400k.. it was including the cost to repair.

I feel sorry for the driver having a manual in Sydney traffic. He's either going to have a well toned left leg or he's going to need a full knee reconstruction
