Rising sea

tsunami

impact

– study

• By Jess Gibson

RISING SEA levels will see tsunamis

have an even bigger impact on

Lyttelton and Akaroa harbours.

A study by the National Institute

of Water and Atmospheric Research

shows a tsunami triggered by an

earthquake in Peru would impact on

bays within the harbours if sea levels

continue to rise due to climate change.

The extent of the tsunamis

predicted in the report are almost

entirely within the existing tsunami

evacuation areas, but 12 additional

Banks Peninsula properties will have

to be added to the areas.

City council head of civil defence

and emergency management Rob

Orchard said staff engaged with a

handful of property owners on Banks

Peninsula “to make sure they’re

aware of the new information and

ways they can stay safe in the event of

a tsunami flooding their land.”

The simulation study presented

the potential flooding risks from a

tsunami triggered by a magnitude

9.28 earthquake in Peru, an event

predicted to happen once every 500

years on average.

THE SPOTLIGHT will be on city

councillors post election – over their pay.

On page 3 today, we reveal a change in

the way city councillors are remunerated.

They will receive money from a fund

called a governance pool. They will set their

own salaries, including any increase, and how community board

members, including those representing Banks Peninsula, will be

funded.

The issue of what Banks Peninsula members get paid has been

a hot topic during this current term, and I fully agree with their

concerns.

Community board pay rates have previously been based on

population. But Banks Peninsula members have big distances to

travel to get to meetings and carry out local body business that is

more time-consuming than city board members.

THE FUNDING of the Banks

Peninsula Community Board

will lie in the hands of city

councillors following the

October local body elections.

City councillors will vote

on how much of a $1,843,200

governance pool will go towards

increasing their own salaries

and decide if any should be put

towards increasing the remuneration

of the Banks Peninsula

Community Board and other

community boards.

Elected members will vote

on the allocation of funds and

make a recommendation to the

Remuneration Authority, which

will have the final say.

In spite of receiving a pay rise

of $194, the Banks Peninsula

Community Board is still paid

less than half of what inner-city

board members are.

As it stands, Banks Peninsula

Community Board members

are set to receive $9864 and the

chairperson $19,729 after the

elections.

Whereas members of the

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board will receive

$24,580 and their chair $49,160.

They say what they are paid

fails to account for the time and

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

Funding review after elections

travel that the role requires.

The current remuneration

model is set by population, so

community boards with bigger

populations get better remuneration.

Banks Peninsula Community

Board member Jed O’Donoghue

thought they were paid a pittance

for the work they were

required to do.

He said the low level of remuneration

contributed to his decision

to not stand for re-election.

Half of the board have said

they may not seek reelection

because of what they are paid.

“I think to attract more candidates

and make the democratic

process better you would need

better remuneration,” he said.

Deputy Mayor and Banks

Peninsula councillor Andrew

Turner said he would like to see

some of the governance pool

used to increase the funding of

the Banks Peninsula Community

Board.

“The work of a community

board member is not solely

driven by the population that it

represents. A lot of the work of

a community board is driven

by the environment and on the

Banks Peninsula we have a lot of

environmental issues,” he said.

Andrew Jed

Turner O’Donoghue

City councillor James Gough

agreed there needed to be more

consistency in the remuneration

of community board members.

However, he thought it was

also important city councillors

were paid their fair share.

“You would be mad to not

appreciate that remuneration is

going to factor in the attraction

of quality candidates,” he said.

Councillors will receive a

minimum base salary of $97,280

– $5120 less than what they are

currently paid.

But the mayor will get an

increase, receiving $195,000 – a

$1901 rise from the current

$193,099 the role pays.

Funds from the pool could

be used to increase the base

salary of city councillors

and additional pay could be

allocated towards roles with

extra responsibilities, such as the

mayor, deputy mayor, chairs and

deputy chairs of committees.

Akaroa under fire on Facebook

• By Jess Gibson

A WEEK after Lyttelton was

targetted by the notorious

Facebook page Sh** Towns of

New Zealand, Akaroa has come

under fire.

A satirical review of Akaroa

which was posted to the page

last Tuesday attracted more

than 200 comments and 50

shares.

Sh** Towns of New Zealand,

which humorously writes about

“all the best places not to go on a

holiday,” is followed by more than

125,000 people.

“The Banks Peninsula outpost

of Akaroa had the misfortune of

being settled by the French and

has been filled with pretentious,

foul-smelling weirdos ever since,”

it read.

Akaroa resident and Frenchman

Steve Le Lievre does not

have Facebook but has read the

post and said it was “way the hell

off from the truth.’’

The 71-year-old is a well-known

identity in Akaroa as he is the

town crier and has lived there his

whole life.

The page took several jabs at

the town’s French history which

dates back to 1840 when the first

group of settlers landed.

Mr Le Lievre is a direct descendant

of one of those settlers,

Francois Le Lievre.

The post read: “French

origins are still evident in the

inhabitants’ laziness, aversion

to personal hygiene, unnatural

lust for baguettes and eagerness

to surrender at the first possible

opportunity,” it read.

“Oh god, it’s rather strange

to me. It has no bearing on the

history of Akaroa,” Mr Le Lievre

said.

“It’s bloody crazy, I know the

history because I’m part of it,” he

said.

The post also served a backhanded

compliment at the town’s

attractive views.

“Akaroa’s main claim to fame

DESCENDANT:

Akaroa town

crier Steve Le

Lievre is not

impressed

with a harsh

write-up on

his home of 71

years.

is its supposed ‘picturesque

charm’, which is pimped out

twice daily when hordes of

norovirus-afflicted cruise ship

passengers descend on the

hamlet to buy dodgy croissants

and take a picture next to an old

lighthouse,” it read.

Mr Le Lievre said he loves

“everything” about Akaroa

including the bustling tourism

scene.

New study shows

impacts of tsunami

•From page 1

Different sea level rise

scenarios are considered –

ranging from 19cm to 1.06m –

over the next 50-100 years.

Lyttelton has a steep

topography on the coast

protecting most of its shoreline

from a tsunami but low-lying

bays in the harbour, like Purau

Bay, Charteris Bay, Governors

Bay and Head of the Bay, are

more exposed to inundation.

Using 2018 seas levels,

NIWA discovered during the

magnitude 9.28 earthquake

scenario the inundation at Head

of the Bay would reach 1.5km

inland with a maximum depth

of 7m.

The inundation depth for

Head of the Bay is expected to

reach 8m with 2065 sea levels,

and 9m by 2120. It would extend

about 90m inland in both

scenarios. Port areas see severe

damage to infrastructure.

Low-lying areas in Akaroa

Harbour are the most likely to

be affected in a tsunami, namely

Wainui, Akaroa, Takamatua,

Duvauchelle Bay, Barrys Bay and

French Farm Bay.

In a 9.28 earthquake with 2018

sea levels, the inundation depth

in Akaroa would be more than

5m and reach as far as 250m

inland, flooding most of the

historical town.

In a 2120 sea level scenario,

it shows inundation would

increase in Akaroa by 100m

inland. In Takamatua with

2018 levels, inundation would

reach beyond the Christchurch-

Akaroa Rd as far as 440m inland

with a maximum depth of 6.5m.

In 2120, flooding would have

increased by 60m inland.

Scenarios with higher sea

levels also amplified inundation

in other bays.

“Modelling like this is so

important in allowing us to

better understand how tsunamis

flood the land. In turn, it allows

us to make the best-informed

emergency management

decisions,” Mr Orchard said.

“We are always growing

our understanding, and as we

learn more, we will update

information in our tsunami

evacuation zones,” he said.

The modelling was done by

NIWA at the city council’s

request as part of a multi-hazard

analysis project.

How to Escape from Prison

by Paul Wood

The Remarkable Story of How One Man Defied the Odds

At 18, Paul Wood thought he had lost everything. He

had committed an act he knew would send him to prison

for many years. To a young man like Paul, it might as

well have been for the rest of his life.

Plunged into a nightmarish world of extreme violence, solitary

confinement, gang allegiances, drugs, vindictive wardens

and regular stabbings, Paul spent the next 11 years confined in some of New

Zealand’s toughest jails.

Based on an account of his experiences he wrote while still inside, How to Escape

from Prison chronicles Paul’s road to redemption and a new life as a doctor of

psychology, helping others strive to fulfil their potential and develop the resilience

to flourish, even in adversity. This is a gripping read about a man who sank to the

depths of despair, before scaling the heights of true freedom.

‘Paul’s transformation is unbelievable. We are sometimes brought up to think

a zebra can’t change its stripes. Paul Wood’s story is proof that anyone can

change. It gives you great courage that you can do anything.’

- Sir John Kirwan

The Last Widow

by Karin Slaughter

New York Times bestselling author Karin Slaughter brings back Will Trent and

Sara Linton in this superb and timely thriller full of devious twists, disturbing

secrets, and shocking surprises you won’t see coming.

It begins with an abduction.

The routine of a family shopping trip is shattered when Michelle Spivey is

snatched as she leaves the mall with her young daughter. The police search for

her, her partner pleads for her release, but it’s as if she disappeared into thin air.

A month later, on a sleepy Sunday afternoon, medical examiner Sara Linton

is at lunch with her boyfriend Will Trent, an agent with the Georgia Bureau of

Investigation. But the serenity of the summer’s day is broken by the wail of sirens.

Sara and Will are trained to run towards an emergency, not away from it. But

on this one terrible day that instinct betrays them. Within hours the situation

has spiralled out of control. And the fallout will lead them into the Appalachian

mountains, to the terrible truth about really happened to Michelle, and to a remote

compound where a radical group has murder in mind...

ANOTHER five peacocks

have been shot as a

neighbourly dispute in

Lyttelton continues to

escalate.

In February, Brenchley

Farm owner Sue Stubenvoll

sent a legal letter to her

neighbour Janelle Wills,

who feeds the wild

peacocks. It said she had

the right to shoot the birds

under the Impounding Act.

She gave Miss Wills four

weeks notice of what would

happen if they came onto

her property.

In May, Ms Stubenvoll

arranged for someone to

shoot five of the peacocks.

Last week, she had

someone shot another five.

She said it is possible

more may be killed.

Ms Stubenvoll said she

had eaten some of the

peacocks.

“They are pretty tough so

sometimes I give bits to the

dog,” she said.

The cull comes right in

the middle of a relocation

effort to move the peacocks

out of harm’s way.

There are now only

four peacocks left.

Seventeen have been

relocated.

There were originally

more than 30 peacocks in

the area.

Miss Wills said the

TARGETED:

been shot

peacocks that were shot all

had new homes and were

about to be moved.

“I don’t get it when they

have all got homes they are

set to move in to. Why kill

them when you can save

them?” she said.

She wants more time

to relocate the remaining

peacocks.

Ms Stubenvoll said she

killed the peacocks in a bid

to protect the rare geckos

and skinks that live on her

farm.

However, Miss Wills

does not believe her.

“The reason she has done

this is because she wanted

to eat them, it has nothing

to do with geckos.”

MISSED: Douglas James (Jim)

McArthur received a Gold Star in

1998 for 25 years service to the

Sumner Volunteer Fire Brigade.

• By Jess Gibson

AFTER 25 years, volunteer

firefighter Marty Stanley still

gets an adrenaline rush when the

sirens go off at the Governors Bay

station.

Since joining the Governors

Bay Volunteer Fire Brigade in

1994, Mr Stanley has responded

to a range of call-outs in

the community and across

Christchurch.

But he said his biggest feat “by

far” was the Port Hills fires in

2017, where he helped out for

more than a week.

Now the 60-year-old has been

recognised with a gold star pin,

which represents 25 years of

service to the brigade.

“It was a pretty awesome

feeling. The years have gone really

fast, that’s for sure,” Mr Stanley

said.

Remembering a veteran

of the Sumner brigade

his retirement in 2000. Jim was

made a life honorary member

of the brigade in 1985, but the

pinnacle of his service was

when he received his Gold Star

for 25 years service in 1998.

The function for this was held

at the Sumner RSA. I seem to

recall a night of rock and roll

and dancing.

Not all of Jim’s fire brigade

activity was within the Sumner

brigade.

He had active roles in both

the Canterbury Provincial Fire

Brigades Association and the

Mid-Canterbury Fire Brigades

Sub Association, serving as

president of each (at different

times) and being made a life

member of each. Jim has

remained a firm supporter of

these organisations, and of

the Sumner Volunteer Fire

Brigade. He was always a

regular attendee of AGMs and

social events.

Last month we had our

annual AGM, which celebrated

125 years of the brigade’s

existence.

To mark this historic

occasion, we had speakers

relate their experiences of the

Sumner brigade. We had the

treat of hearing Jim speak

about some of his experiences

in the brigade, which in

hindsight turned out to be

excellent timing.

Bid to reduce

freedom

camping

at reserve

• By Jess Gibson

AN ATTEMPT is being made to

address freedom camping issues

in Diamond Harbour by changing

a popular app.

The Diamond Harbour

Residents Association expressed

concerns in May over freedom

campers littering and causing

parking congestion for other

vehicles at Stoddart Point Reserve.

The city council has now

requested an app providing

information about freedom

camping at the reserve change its

wording to help reduce the issues.

CamperMate is a popular

phone app referenced on the city

council’s “know where to camp”

brochure, which lists freedom

camping locations nationwide

and specifies guidelines for those

areas.

CamperMate currently refers

to the city council’s freedom

camping bylaw from 2015 for the

whole of Diamond Harbour.

It states that certified selfcontained

vehicles can park at any

city council-owned site, except

a prohibited area of Purau Bay,

for a maximum of two nights per

month.

The city council has asked

CamperMate to update its

guidelines specifically for

Stoddart Point Reserve to

say “certified self-contained

campervans can stay in this

parking area for up to two

nights in any 30-day period.

Proof of self-containment will

be required. Regular monitoring

and enforcement. Please take

all rubbish with you. Popular

parking area for visitors, and for

locals commuting by ferry.”

Time capsule

found in

A 25-YEAR-OLD time capsule

has been discovered at Okains

Bay School.

A builder found the capsule in

the school’s ceiling. It contained

memorabilia from 1994, such as

newspaper clippings, magazines,

coins, stamps and several letters

from a roll of 19 pupils.

In one of the letters, a group

of senior pupils shared what was

happening at the time.

“New Zealand’s prime minister

is Jim Bolger, for $1 you can buy

a pie or a Crunchie bar, we drive

to school in a 1991 Falcon, 1973

Holden, 1991 Honda and 1981

“We’d like NZ to be clean,

pollution-free and war-free by

2050.”

Principal Colin Hammond

said the discovery was “very

exciting” for teachers and the

school’s 11 pupils.

Mr Hammond was in his

20s in 1994 and said he shared

what it was like to be a “spring

Pupils will create their own

capsule before placing both back

in the ceiling to be discovered at

a later date.

on current

projects in

Sumner and

Peninsula

If I never see another road

cone again . . .

One of the many things that

Christchurch folk are over is

road cones and traffic works,

detours and changed street

layouts. Driving in our city is a

bit like adventure tourism – you

never quite know what route you

will be taking or where you will

end up.

But I haven’t detected this

frustration (or at least not quite

as much as other times) with

the extensive road work that is

going on in Sumner Village. I

think there are two reasons for

tolerance.

The first is that every day the

Shag Rock to Surf Club section

of the Coastal Pathway gets

closer to finishing – and it is

going to be such an asset for

Canterbury once the next two

stages are completed.

And in the village itself, the

extensive work is the delivery of

the concept part of the village

masterplan – which we started

working on eight years ago.

It will really lift the look of

the village and I am sure will

be warmly welcomed by all

residents. (And hopefully, boost

the “Shop Local” campaign).

Week of highs and lows

AS PART of the Matariki

celebrations, Vittoria recently had

her first hangi meal.

She loved it so much she started

using a fork on her own just to

eat it. I’m not even exaggerating,

it was literally the first time she’d

used a fork on her own. A fork

she took off Laura.

She was even scooping wee bits

up to feed to her grandparents in

exchange for more chicken.

After munching down on the

stuffing, pumpkin and potato on

her own plate, she was banging

on Laura’s potato with her fork for

more.

Truly, her father’s daughter.

This week has not been so full

of fun however, I’ve been sick with

a cold and a cough, the first time

since becoming the stay-at-home

parent.

I also had my first “concerned

parent” trip to the 24-hour surgery

on Tuesday.

To save those who read last

week’s edition from further poobased

trauma, I’ll quickly summarise

the reason; there was the

stinkyness, ’twas a strange colour

and Dr Google got me all stressed.

I started by calling Plunket, who

informed me that it would be a

good idea to take her to the doctors,

just in case.

As is typical in cases where you

present to a packed surgery with

a fairly benign concern, you wait

– for ages.

Pro tip; a giggling patient who is

comedian? Racism, child abuse,

abortion, sexual misconduct,

rape, family violence, bullying,

and other examples of sensitive

issues, exploitation and misuse of

power.

Comedian Ray Shipley explores

their gender fluidity in creative

ways, with a strong following. We

laugh at our weaknesses, blind

spots, inconsistencies.

Vote with your feet. Keep

staying away from racism.

TASTY: Vittoria enjoying a

hangi meal.

happy to run around and eat her

snacks is not high on the priority

list.

Needless to say, when I finally

saw the doctor it was a definite

non-emergency. But not wasted

time; I was reassured and what I

was worried about was a totally

legit concern. I am winning at

parenting.

So finally, to the family who

kindly lent me books and toys for

Vittoria to help entertain her and

to the wee lad who chatted with

her through the long wait, thank

you.

SUMNER WILL need a miracle

to qualify for the premier metro

rugby competition plate semifinals

after their 15-48 loss to

Linwood at Linfield Park on

Saturday.

The result means Sumner

now have to defeat Sydenham

on Saturday and hope Burnside

and Linwood suffer upset

losses to University and Belfast

respectively.

Sumner showed plenty of

promise in the opening half

against Linwood, with close to

80 per cent of the possession.

However, they found themselves

trailing 7-12 at half-time.

“To have all that possession

and territory and only score

runs came from Millie Junge, Sam

Bailey, Zara Percasky, Abigail

Junge and Neve Majendie.

The senior racing was

highlighted by titles for Lisa

Brignull, David Fitch and Graham

Batchelor.

Brignull was dominant in

the 45-49 women’s 5000m. She

finished more than 40sec ahead of

her nearest rival with a winning

time of 20min 31sec. Fitch was

seven points is one thing. Then

to give them two opportunities

and have them score two tries

was another,” said coach Martin

Dodgson. Sumner scored a first

half try through second-five Willy

Saukura after working their way

into Linwood’s territory after a

dozen fazes.

Dodgson said he couldn’t fault

his side’s mentality in the first half

after their subpar performance

against Burnside a week earlier.

In the second half, Sumner

dotted down for their second try

through fullback Poasa Cama.

After a scrum, Sumner went

down the blindside and Saukura

put Cama in to score with an

impressive off-load. Cama only

recently returned to rugby after

a serious knee injury at Linfield

Medal haul at South Island cross-country champs

even more dominant in winning

the 40-44 men’s 9000m. His time

of 30min 17sec saw him finish

nearly 4min clear. Meanwhile

Batchelor won the 70-plus 7000m

in 33min 3sec.

There were also podium finishes

for Robyn Perkins

in the 55-59 women’s 5000m,

Morgan Strong in the 45-49

women’s 5000m and Alistair Cory-

Wright in the 50-54 men’s 9000m.

know, has these firearms or parts, please go to a collection event to hand them in for buy-back or amnesty.

Park early last year. Linwood then

went on to score two tries in quick

succession and seized the match.

“That’s when our mentality

probably started to drop off a bit.

We started missing tackles and

we conceded two late tries,” said

Dodgson.

From an individual standpoint,

Dodgson pin-pointed the

performance of lock Josh Loader,

who picked up the players’ player

of the match. “He carried the ball

and did his core job really well.

He really ripped into things,” said

Dodgson.

Sumner are now fifth in the

bottom six competition, two

points behind Burnside in second

and the final plate semi-final spot.

Embracing the blend – it’s a matter of balance

• By Mark Henderson

THIS ASSORTMENT of wine

eschews the concept of single

variety wines in favour of

embracing the blend.

It is all a matter of balance

and synergy, where two, three

or more ingredients can create

a complete whole, while the

freedom of the blend allows

wine-makers to experiment and

‘’have a little fun’’.

Pegasus Bay’s Sauvignon

Semillon and Millton’s Les Trois

Enfants are old hands at this

game, while the new Vergence

typifies the test-bed approach,

with the Untitled range marrying

a startlingly diverse, multivintage,

region and variety

approach (Back label Lot

Game on indeed.

citrus peel, peach and wine gum.

Creamy and attractive palate of

mixed berries apple and musk

moving into some savoury notes.

Delightfully, bright and zesty, dry

finish that hangs in your mouth.

A neat each-way bet here, both

as an aperitif, or with food.

NV Untitled White Blend

Price: $25

Rating: Very good

Multi vintage, variety and

region blend. Fragrant nose

that evokes tropical fruit salad.

Creamy entry, a crisp, fresh

palate with notes of cooked

apple, pip fruits, toffee and

a refreshing, ripe grapefruit

character that gives zestiness.

Fresh and appealing drinking

with a little wisp of salinity on

the finish that gets the salivary

glands going.

NV Untitled Red Blend

Price: $30

Rating: Excellent

Intriguing multi vintage, multi

region and multi variety wine

with a nose of red fruits, malt

biscuits, wild herbs and a tangy,

resiny note.

This nods its hat to Europe,

its tanginess and juicy,

crunchiness suggesting a Kiwi

Beaujolais.

Fresh, bright, vibrant, nicely

balanced with an appealing

bittersweet element before

flowing to a long, cool, dry

finish.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Eat healthy using delicious ingredients

Salads never need to

be boring, as seasonal

ingredients are just that

– seasonal. Winter brings

delicious flavours and

textures which go great with

grains. But don’t forget to

add a punchy dressing

Buckwheat with

autumn vegetables and

pomegranate dressing

Ingredients

250g buckwheat groats, rinsed

well

1 bulb fennel, cut into thin

wedges

250g pumpkin, peeled and

deseeded, cut into cubes

1 red onion, peeled and cut into

wedges

¼ cup parsley, roughly chopped

2 Tbsp fennel tops, roughly

chopped

Dressing

2 Tbsp pomegranate molasses

1 Tbsp maple syrup

4 Tbsp olive oil

¼ tsp ground cinnamon

Pinch of salt

Directions

Heat the oven to 200 deg C.

Bring a medium-sized pot of

lightly-salted water to the boil.

Add the rinsed buckwheat and

cook for 25-35min. The groats

should be tender when cooked.

Drain and rinse under cold

water. Put into a large bowl.

While the groats are cooking,

prepare the vegetables.

Put the chopped vegetables

into a bowl with enough olive

oil to coat them well. Season

with salt and cracked pepper.

Toss to combine. Spread evenly

over a suitably-sized oven dish.

Roast, turning occasionally so

the vegetables cook evenly and

colour all over (30min).

Add the ingredients together

and pour over the dressing in a

small bowl and whisk together.

Add the roasted vegetables to

the cooked buckwheat, drizzle

over the dressing and add the

herbs. Toss gently to combine,

taste and adjust, seasoning if

necessary.

Top off your healthy salad

with a nutritious treat

Hazelnut bliss balls

Ingredients

½ cup hazelnuts

½ orange (juice and grated zest)

1 cup fine coconut

1 Tbsp coconut oil

½ tsp cinnamon

1 Tbsp dark cacao powder

1 tsp vanilla essence

Pinch of salt

Chunks of your favourite (storebought)

dark chocolate for the

centre of each bliss ball.

Directions

Place all the bliss ball

ingredients (except the chunks

of chocolate) into a bowl and

mix well. Then roll balls out of

the mixture.

Push a chunk of chocolate into

the centre of each bliss ball while

shaping them in your hands. You

can choose how big you make

the bliss balls.

BMW X5 – performance with comfort

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

THE LAST place I expected to

see a brand new BMW X5 was in

Cootamundra, a small town near

the New South Wales/Victoria

border.

I had been to a rock concert in

Sydney, and took the train to Melbourne

to have a few days at the

formula one grand prix event.

I spotted the latest generation

sport utility vehicle sitting in a

car park near the railway station

and, although I couldn’t see the

nomenclature it had a remarkable

resemblance to the very car

I picked up soon after my return

home – it was even the same

colour – white.

BMW New Zealand is landing

the X5 here in three specifications

at launch, with other variants sure

to follow. At present there is the

choice of two six-cylinder 3-litre

diesels or a 3-litre six-cylinder

petrol engine. The test car was

the xDrive30d, the entry model

at $135,200. The other variants

are the xDrive40i at $147,900 and

M50d at $177,900. The new X5 is

true to its heritage, it is the large

sport utility vehicle that impresses

with its build quality, performance

and economy.

It is also chock full of specification,

the list is way too long

to detail considering it was also

fitted with many of the specification

items from BMW’s long list

of optional extras.

Personally, I could do without

all the bells and whistles, the X5

is a car with purpose, it is there

for the family car buyer who also

needs practicality, and it does that

well within its design parameter,

even though it is just a five-seater

only. Comfort levels are high,

and the X5 travels quietly and

smoothly.

Much of the latter is due to the

sophistication within the suspension

and driveline. BMW rates

the 2993cc diesel at 195kW and

620Nm; as a performance car

builder, the company has produced

an engine with remarkable

outputs, both developed low in

the rev band at 4000rpm and

2000rpm respectively.

Drive is passed through an

eight-speed transmission to all

four wheels, this process almost

seamless and contributes to the

refinement of the entire package,

it’s uncanny how the gearbox can

harness the high power outputs

without notice. There are also

several drive modes which can be

BMW X5: Serious four-wheel-drive system.

tempered to suit each individual’s

driving preference.

In terms of performance, the

big X5 has a solid turn of speed,

it will accelerate to 100km/h in

6.8sec, and will return a fuel usage

combined cycle average of 7.2-litre

per 100km (39mpg), that fits

with the evaluation car’s readout,

it was showing a constant average

of around 8.8l/100km (32mpg).

It also showed a 5.5l/100km

(51mpg) instantaneous figure at a

steady 100km/h cruise, the engine

unstressed at a lowly 1300rpm.

On the road, the X5 cruises

with much dignity and poise, as

you would expect from a luxury

European car. I drove the fabulous

high country roads taking

in State Highway 72, the scenic

route between Canterbury’s two

main river gorges.

The X5 has handling and control

that is akin to models from

the company that has such an enviable

sporty car heritage. I’m not

saying the X5 is a sports car but it

does have attributes that draws in

that technique as a car maker. The

30d rides on huge 22in wheels

and that contributes greatly as to

how the X5 feels from behind the

wheel, not withstanding that fourwheel-drive

enhances grip in the

first instance.

The X5 buyer can push quickly

into a corner with the knowledge

that it has ability, and offers reassurance

at the same time. While

• Price – BMW X5 30d,

$135,200

• Dimensions – Length,

4922mm; width,

2004mm; height, 1745mm

• Configuration – Sixcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2993cc, 195kW, 620Nm,

eight-speed automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 6.8sec

• Fuel usage – 7.2l/100km

its handling and surety must be

described as well above average,

it does so without compromising

comfort, body movement is well

controlled without the spring

and damper rates being overly

firmed.

As I’ve alluded to, the X5 is a

large SUV, it sits at just under

5m and it has a wealth of internal

space so that occupants can

spread out and enjoy the associated

benefits. If you think that

comes at the cost of rear load

space, that’s certainly not the case,

BMW claims an 645-litre cargo

carrying capacity, stretching to

1860-litres with the rear seats

folded flat.

The X5 has carved out a healthy

part of New Zealand’s SUV

market, the new model will only

add to its appeal, it’s a versatile,

practical all-rounder, and one

which through its quality build

will serve and last for many years.

I certainly hope to get a drive

with the other engine choices.

Substantial Scarborough Home!

142 Scarborough Road, Sumner

Price by negotiation

5 bedrooms | 3 bathrooms | 5 toilets | 3 living rooms | 1 office/study

4 car-garage | 2 off-street parks | Listing Number SM0222

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

BAY HARBOUR

PAGE 21

This striking executive home makes

an immediate impression and enjoys

an irreplaceable dress circle position

opposite Nicholson Park at the top of

Scarborough Hill. Incredibly positioned

with breathtaking 270˚ views that cannot

be built out over Sumner Beach and the

city with a backdrop of the Southern Alps

and the Kaikoura Ranges.

This spectacular level corner site was a

determining factor in the distinctive design

by acclaimed architect Alick Bellerby which

won ‘house of the year’ on completion.

Spread over a 360sqm of approximate

floor plan with generously proportioned

living areas, 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and

level access to 4 car garaging.

The kitchen is the hub of the home

connecting 2 of the living rooms. Warm oak

floors and full height windows flood the

home with warmth and light and optimise

the sea views. A separate downstairs media

room is a great space for teenagers, a work

from home office space or maybe a gym.

Look out over the manicured gardens

or step outside to a private Halswell stone

courtyard and BBQ area. Here you have

the ability to host everything from intimate

dinner parties to large gatherings in a very

private and sheltered setting.

The established and easily maintained

1613sqm grounds include level lawns, rose

gardens, planted borders and offers an

enviable microclimate with total privacy.

Located between Sumner Beach and

Taylors Mistake Beach, allows plenty of

recreational pleasures such as surfing,

boating, walking and cycling right on your

doorstep. While close by in the Sumner

Village you can enjoy the cafes, restaurants,

library and boutique shops.

Sublime design, superior construction

and a prestigious location combine to make

this a compelling lifestyle offering. With

our owner now committed to Auckland

you could secure this home for immediate

possession. Present all offers.

Open Homes: Sunday 14 July 2:00pm -

2:45pm.

With seating for 6, cushioned headrests and 35 targeted jets, there’s plenty of room

for you, friends and family to relax in the 1300 litre Relay. This value-packed spa is

SOVEREIGN PAGE 27

To give you a genuine swimming experience the X-Series delivers stronger

resistance and less turbulence than ordinary jetted swim spas. The design

features five jets - three on top for resistance and two underneath for lift – that

create a smooth, air-free current for superior low-impact, total-body exercise.

Need a spa that fits a narrow patio or backyard? The Sovereign is spacious

enough for 6 adults to relax in comfort and features a more rectangular shape

to fit in tighter spaces. It includes all the luxury features from the Highlife®

Collection with a lounge seat featuring our patented Moto-Massage® DX jet.
