    Correct - the number on the micro dot is linked to the VIN number. I think Nissan were first to start micro dotting vehicles in SA

    Setting up all 5 injectors to make sure I can pick up a faulty injector early on the measuring blocks.

    Hardly any trace of oil the intake which means blowby is minimal which means rings are sealing good. Jippee!

    It was Thursday afternoon and I was leaving for phakisa before sunrise the next morning so my options were drive with one headlight or bend over for vw.

    Nope. Dis die baas se Cayenne. Die Cayenne werk nie so lekker vir hom nie. Hy't 'n kar nodig wat better 4x4 vermoee het vir die plase wat hy besoek om te verkoop.

    Hy het altyd my Gen3 pajero gebruik maar ek dink hy's te bang hy gaan staan om my treg te gebruik

    so you selling your boss's cayenne. i am not surprised that he wants to sell it.
    i am looking to getting one in the future and it will not be a gen 2 model like this. I want the one with low ratio gear box. weighs more but you can do more with it.

    Dankie vir dai brokie nuus. Gaan ook nou by my Autozone aanklop vir een. VW vra my amper R4000 per globe. Weet jy watter kleur is dit (4000k 4500k, 5000k)? Ek dink dit is hoe dit werk.

    We get ripped on those things here in SA. You can get 2 Philips bulbs for R 1000.00 on ebay. I'd be a bit cautious of the R 500 ones from Autozone though, if it's not an Osram or Philips, not sure it's worth the risk of having rubbish?
