Attribute to Detective Senior Sergeant Christiaan Barnard:
 
Police investigating the death of Sosiua Helotu Ula are appealing for sightings of a silver Mazda RX8.
 
The car was seen in the Waitangirua shops just before 4:00pm on Sunday.  It was then seen driving at speed along Warspite Avenue around the time of the incident in which Mr Ula sustained his fatal injuries (just after 4pm on Sunday 7 October), and Police believe it was involved in the incident in some way.
 
If you know where this car is or you saw a car matching this description in Warspite Avenue or the wider Waitangirua area, please call Wellington Police Crime Squad on 04 381 2000 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
 
Police are still also seeking any sightings of a black Mercedes, registration GPW495, or a red car driving on Warspite Avenue that nearly had a head-on crash with the Mercedes.
