There are lots!

Near my house - the Rimutaka Hill road - very twisty, steep and cambered corners. The Wainuiomata hill road - very steep - fast sweeping off camber corners.

The road between Palmerston North and Masterton - 'The Paihiatua Track' - XR6T dream road.

Winding roads north of Wanganui, all of the west coast of the south island.

Sounds a bit like Tassie! Any pics or vids from cruises in the past over there? I'd like to see the scenery.

The majority of cars in NZ are jap imports, or jap produced for sure. But... there are a lot of Falcons, the BAs must have been a big seller here. The majority are XR6 but there are plenty of XR6 Turbos or XR8s. It would be rare to drive somewhere and not see one in around 15 or 20 minutes driving.

I came over to Brisbane and was looking out for all the Falcons - and I reckon in proportion, there would be less XR6Ts and XR8s going past than in NZ.

I am in Wellington - about 2 hours south of Palmerston North.

yes yes, Jap cars are EVERYWHERE. LOL 4 door r32's

But there are heaps of falcons around. Cobrav8 is right, you wouldnt have to travel tooo far too see another xr6t.

I am in West Auckland. We have the Waitakere Ranges plenty of bendy roads which get you to the beach, and there are many other roads just outside of Auckland which are great drives.

I just wish I had a manual! the tiptronic is really a novelty for people dont you think?
