but there is BAD news...i broke the wing mirror (dont ask), causing some of the paint to chip and the actual MIRROR reflective part to also chip. Hey Skav, looks like you've had the same instance as me. Did you just brush it lightly with your finger or something and it broke off?? I appears to be m...

As a point of interest, the removable T-Tops can only go on one side.. [ie you can't swap them over].. have a play around as you might have the left side on the right side, or visa versa. Also, I have just posted GreenPoisons images into my yahoo photos gallery on how to swap the tyres over and have...

MrPayner: Thanks for the pic...it appears that Aoshima didn't even go to great lengths to stamp their logo anywhere on the model. It's exactly the same with the ERTL...even the blue serial number is identical! No problemo.. i couldn't even see that blue serial number until it came up in the photos!...

It's alarming to know about the missing pedals and defective sideview mirrors , I'm just glad the KITT I purchased is perfect. Yeh.. I am thinking that maybe that mirror was almost broken anyway.. it was the lightest tap.. http://forum.mazda6club.com/style_emoticons/default/59.gif Poo bum wee! AP

I'm glad I decided to order mine when i did. In repsonse to some of the posts above.. I would rather have white lettering on the tyres ...

Are you thinking of Edward Mulhare (who played Devon) by any chance? I know that is the only one I can think of from the KR cast that also starred in Baywatch a couple times. I don't remember William Daniels in it. What part did he play? Edward Mulhare is quite a distinguished gentleman, so he woul...

Hahaha.. thanks D Man. I actually moved here from Bowral in NSW at the end of 2002.. It's not a bad place here in the old "rat".. it's funny to see all the P platers running up and down Sturt Street in their VL commodores for the Sturt Street Grand Prix.. Do you have any family here? Regards Adam

Yeh.. HLJ changed it in the last 24 hours from "Future Release" to "November Release".. Sadly KARR is still a future release.

Re: Hasselhoff mentions KR movie in Time

What's going on with the Knight Rider movie? It's still in development. There is such a cult following all around the world. You'd have to wonder if "The Hoff" frequented these forums and has seen our ideas for the movie and therefore collecting his own thoughts.. It would be nice to think that he'...
