    Since im sitting here still waiting for my VR4 (and having looked at my photos of it a million times) I was wondering if people could post up (or even go and take) photos of the finer details of their VR4.

    I am not looking for anything in particular, just some things like:

    • Closeup of the gearshift selector
    • Closeups of the various dash controls
    • Centre console and cup holders
    • The interior roof (moonroof controls, passenger lights?)
    • Glovebox (any nifty features to this?)
    • Rear Seats folded in legnum
    • Power window controls and doors
    • Key with 2 button remote
    • Boot storage compartments in legnums
    • Interior side of rear legnum tailgate
    • Standard brake calipers/discs with wheel off
    • Fuel filler (does the fuel cap have a little attachment so you dont have to put the cap on the ground?)
    • Video of the climate control in action (does the climate control tell you what the inside and outside temperature is?)
    I think thats all I need - dont ask for much do I! It might sound like and odd request, but after looking at thousands of VR4 photos, im keen to see stuff I havent seen before.

    Ive sat in 3 vr4s before - but as each visit has been breif its hard to saok it all up.

    I'm not taking any pics for you at 6am, but I will tell you that the glovebox is completely boring, the rear seats fold almost flat, the sunroof model has a switch that can slide to the front or to the back to open it up, and also push in to just open up the back of the sunroof. There are 2 map lights for the front people as well as a door open light. There are two rear map lights, and another light at the back of the boot.

    The fuel filler has space for the cap to sit in it, and yes the climate control has outside temperature, but not unside temp.

    The boot has a storage compartment on the left hand side only, the door on the right is to access the AYC. It has a small tray on either side of the main boot floor, and if you lift up the main part of the boot floor there is a plastic tray there with quite a bit of storage.

    The climate control looks to be the same as the Aus Magnas (verada maybe ?) of the same year. Can anyone confirm if it is the same ?

    Looks like the plastic fades / discolours quite badly... maybe it could do with a bit of paint to liven it up? ;)

    At the press of a button, the climate control tells you the outside temp. Inside temp is only shown as the temp you dial in..

    Pic attached of moonroof controls and fuel filler.

    This will sound weird but I really like BMW's switches. I think they're quite distinctive.

    Sorry Simon, I agree but I can't resist:
    Like anyone would be interested in the opinion of a moron who can't even spell powerful or wonderful...

    Now, people with cars PLEASE post some photos up before Simon chews his own arm off?! :(

    I notice you've got English MMCS - is that from that CD from the guy in NZ?

    I actually got the CD off a forum member from Western Australia - Paul aka Takumi who was kind enough to burn and send it to me. It converts everything and makes the MMCS very easy to use but unfortunately keeps resetting itself and throwing up an error message. I'll ask around at the next meet to see if anyone else is having this prob.
