lol no mate sorry I am aware of the plot however, thinking happy thoughts lol

I ended up just signing up for NRMA classic care (the middle one, not premium) as I started packing the car yesterday and there is didley squat room for a spare or anything like that. Have also decided to take the coastal route based on the coverage that NRMA level of care can provide.

Also just a heads up to anyone considering the NSW/ACT to QLD move (possibly also other states), if you go with NRMA and then move to QLD you are only provided a 'basic' level of cover. So if you have 'Premium' which gives you all the bells and whistles and you enter QLD you automatically loose the majority of your benefits. So with that in mind I opted for the 'classic care'.

hey all, well just an update we arrvied safe and sound in brissy. no flats or any major issues on the road to really mention. Averaged 7.3l/100km with a fully packed car which i was very happy with.

Only minor hiccup was that I did hit a decent pothole on one of smaller country roads and think i may have knocked my wheel alignment out a shade. Extemely minor but will mention it when i get the vehicle serviced (due next month).

Also just for anyone else making this trip make sure you check the way your GPS route is setup as our garmin unit took us off the nice highways and onto some dodgey roads near tweed heads a few times which is where i ran into the pot holes.

Nice, welcome to "BrisVegas"*

Re GPS: It's really just one long road on the M1 and through various towns - just follow the signs lol

Your Garmin was set to navigate by "use Hippie back roads to avoid cops" turn that off and you'll be set....

Is the general consensus when replacing RFT's to normal tyres is go up one size width and keep the same profile, eg Front 225/40/18 - Rear 255/35/18. then increasing the tyre pressure to help retain suspension dynamics...or is this just too simplistic?
