  3. hi i have a Jap import golf 4 with sat nav system installed which is no use, as it can't be upgraded for New Zealand, so i need to take it out of the dash. my question is how do i remove the head unit with the screen in. it is almost identical to the pics in posts above. i want to replace this with a single disc player and the standard pocket. any ideas!

  6. New Zealand

    if you want an easy sight seeing trip try the overlander train it goes from wellington to Auckland and vis versa . i havn't tried it yet it is on my list to do, but people here tell me it is well worth it.
  7. what's New Zealand like??

    Hi Floyd, NZ does have its problems but they are no worse than in the UK you can be a rural as you like here or live in the city, although Auckland is the exception it is very busy, and the road etticutt is like Paris maybe worse! the rest of NZ is not that busy. We went to Wellington the other day and that is the Capital it was as busy as Nottingham in comparison. I live in a little town near Hamilton North Island 3 hours away from Auckland and it is so relaxed. Like anywhere you have to choose carefully where you live. any questions PM me and i will try to help.
