    Can anyone recommend a good and reasonably priced mechanic in Lower Hutt? Got a Toyota Corolla that needs a couple of things fixed and Toyota usually seen to charge a fortune so wondering if anyone else would be worthwhile.

    The last one I used was Waiwhetu Auto Services - and to be honest the price was pretty reasonable. I've struggled to find a 'fair-ish' mechanic for a while but was pretty impressed by the by.

    Advanced Vehicle Servicing are fantastic and very very well priced to the point I sometimes feel bad https://goo.gl/maps/CkDKfpungfHgi7z47

    Public transport isn't great and there's some real ghetto areas.

    Haven't the jetstreams moved significantly northwards with this breakdown of the Antarctic vortex?

    Also if you work in Wellington City etc you will just get stuck in gridlock on the Esplanade.

    Yeah pretty much what I thought about Wanui.

    Wanui honestly isn't that bad anymore. Friend owns a house there. House has gone up in value a lot. Zero issues bar traffic.

    WTF is up with cyclists, I saw two today run red lights in heavy traffic, one turning right from bowen street onto the terrace - and the other going onto molesworth street from bunny street. In both cases cars had to brake to avoid hitting them. Neither were the usual lycra brigade either. And neither were marginal reds.

    I had five drivers pull out on me doing the school run this arvo, therefore all drivers are bad (I was in a car).

    Some funny logic you use there.

    Well you said “wtf is up with cyclists” and then cited two examples of bad riding, so call my post an extrapolation of yours.

    I've had two cars almost hit me this week after willfully ignoring stop signs
