Haha, yeah there are a few forums, most are just dead.
NZ is over whelmed with Altezzas, they are everywhere, cant seem to go anywhere on any given day without seeing another Altezza.
Wakeboarding is a watersport, sorta like having a smaller surf board strapped to your feet and being pulled by a powerboat, in other words, like water skiing just sideways.

Update for my car:
Got new OBX Street Fully Adjustable suspension now, handling has improved by a crazy amount!!!

Grip is astounding, and the car is easier to predict, way less body roll, feels crisp when I slam the car into corners etc.
