    Re: Poor Customer Service

    Then why do it? As an outsider all I see is terrible workmanship, and a long list of excuses. Stick to what you are good at and build a good reputation from there. Why risk it with beyond scope...

    Re: Swapping out Amarok V6 drivers seat

    You are probably better off going to a car customisation company to customise the interior and accommodate the armrests.

    Both our cars are keyless, and I agree, it's the best feature of both those cars. I just love it

    This applies to a 1st world country, here they will just take the car at gunpoint, no worries about bypassing awesome features in a car.

    Aha great, the sport actually does something to the gearbox and lengthens the gear changes and heightens rpm through this, not just throttle response.

    Re: 2010 Prado 4.0 VX - Any advice

    Correct on maintenance cost.

    R1800 for minor service, up to R6500 for major service (every 40k km)

    Other than that, the R1800 fuel bill every time you fill up is still a shock to the system,...

    Unfortunately I do not think it is fair to compare diesel versus petrol and their respective auto boxes.

    The 8spd is really not bad at all, it's not necessarily great either..

    Not really, it depends how much you are willing to spend per day and per km on a vehicle...it's a 'bad' investment, so the less money you spend per day and per km, the better the 'bad' investment.
