Re: Hyundai Getz aircon troubles

It seems this car is cursed when it comes to the aircon. Finally the parts are on the way and I get an Email from AU Post that there will be shipping delays due to staff shortages and high demand. Last update said it it was accepted and is ready for processing. The expected delivery time was from th...

Re: Hyundai Getz aircon troubles

The things you don't expect to ever happen.... Went for a country drive today to visit an old friend. On the way I was unable to reach for my cooler bag and pulled over. Had a quick snack, a good zip of cold juice and marked my territory on some unsuspecting tree. About to take off and another IDENT...

Re: Hyundai Getz aircon troubles

I ususally do the same and source online instead. Unless it is an urgent case and the local stores offer acceptable prices. Problem is the 1.5 liter version I have uses a rather odd valve. And when I noticed the problem with the aircon I found the "great" offer by accident when looking for what tint...

Re: What is integration and what is wrong wih in recent years?

When I ask my multi-cultural friends how they see themself in terms of "Aussie" they all say they are of course Aussies. When I ask where and how much the shop they all prefer shops providing for their cultural and religious needs for whatever possible. Going into a normal supermarket is usually res...

Re: What is integration and what is wrong wih in recent years?

You see, integration and being Aussie is a rather complex thing LOL But when it comes to those who got their refugee status accepted (often after several years in detention!!!) you might be in for a fincial culture shock. Just when the refugee flood from Arfrica reached a first peak, due to then bac...

Re: What is integration and what is wrong wih in recent years?

Keeping your tradtions, religion and all alive in a new country as here seen as most beneficial. Try to migrate to Japan in enough numbers and then try to demand that you can build your own temple for YOUR people ROFL Australia reached the point where the real Aussie no longer exists.

Re: What is integration and what is wrong wih in recent years?

Coming to Australia so many years ago already meant jumping into a multi-cultural cooking pot. Already during my first few weeks I had to learn that Aussies are the most (latent) racist people in the world and for reason that makes sense! If you know a few hate filled words to address a German rest ...
