SPOTTED: In South Oz

Spotted a SAM 323 Astina on late Sat arvo parked in the BP servo. Then 5 mins after a nice shiny red Familia on Cross Keys Rd had rims but couldnt see what. Was in the Pajero with the Boat on the back.

Came out of Primo Modbury after an average feed last night to a new Grey MPS 3 parked in front of our 800 SP I think its plates were MPSSP3? Made the night get better

Spotted!

was driving home from school today, and going past Ingle Farm shopping centre saw this very attractive grey BG astina sounding very nice and looking the same

knew it was a member of this forum cause of the big "astinagt.com" decal on the front window ;D

If you spot a stock white BG Astina Hatch on Tapley's Hill Rd outside a bunch of warehouses, that's me

Keeping an eye out for members now

I have seen mynameisdaniel's SP20 around the place, numerous times in fact. Nice to look at the photos on the forums, but it gets even better when you actually see it in real life!

Haha thanks mate, hopefully you'll see someone else driving it soon and hopefully they'll take just as good care of it I'll keep an eye out for you

If you've only seen it recently it usually looks much cleaner, I've had to leave it out of the garage twice in the past few weeks (apart from short drives) and it's rained both times!

Saw mynameisdaniel's SP20 again, scored a park next to it at TTP today.

I've also seen a few Familia's around the place, and Sam_323's Famila too. Other than that, just a few worked Mazda3's and some other Protege's around the place. Don't ask for the number plates, I am hopeless at remembering them haha
