    You can say that again! I was livid! Myself and two friends were in the touareg. Our wives and Rijk's daughter was in the green pajero in front.

    If that was me in the car, you would have had to silence the video or beeped out the entire thing... Or were you guys at a loss for words?

    Those drivers are IDIOTS!!! (for lack of a family friendly noun)

    pampoenkop hill climb. The video doesn't do it justice. It's very steep.

    It was my first attempt. Rijk in the drifter has done it many times before and used the correct speed making me look like an average.....umm......driver

    These ones are the ones I fitted - I'm toying with the idea of custom fitting HID globes.

    You lucky to be 4x4ing during the week . Rijk went in with more momentum. Either way, Treg helped you make it anyway.

    If you are bored over the weekend it's always a good idea to clean out the pipes and intercooler to restore the effectiveness of the boost side of the intake. Less oil = better heat exchange = cooler air = denser air = more performance and better economy.

    Hi. You will be pleased to see I listened.😊


    Would checking this pipe be a way of assessing if there is a problem with low compression on one or more cylinders?
