GDQ 250 is an E200 with VIN SFD6F3BR5BGY62475 new 11/11 according to Carjam, but it gives the colour as blue and silver, suggesting Metrolink. The highest Mana fleetnumber is Scania 171, so are there more E200's from 172? The first two E200's for Mana were reported as 32/3.

172 and 173 are also Scania's, and have been since February, you may need to update your info a bit. Mana's only two Enviro 200's so far are 175 and 176, which were inistally 32 and 33 for about a week. GDQ250 will be one of the ones currently parked at Swanson.

I don't recall seeing reports of 172/3 but a photo of 172 (FSN 199) comes up on a Google. Anyone know the reg of 173?

174 and 175 are those two re-numbered from 32,33.

176 has just entered service rego is definitely GDQ250.I can only assume that kiwi bus builder have got the colour and registration stuffed up.....

go to http://www.carjam.co.nz/owner-check/

rego enter:GDQ250

company enter:MANA COACH SERVICES Ltd

Yes, we can confirm MANA COACH SERVICES Ltd owns vehicle with registration number of GDQ250

Where is 718 from? it has no rear window, and what looks like a black on white Number plate on the rear (1999 bus, should be a black on white issue plate, so possibly from a fire?)

718 Is/was at Wiri. Quite a few Auckland 700s have the rear windows plated over. Not been involved in a fire, probably a repainted plate. Why? Is it in Wgtn now Peter??
