    Re: Mabua to Namibia via Mata Mata ?

    100%. You'll have to go to TR. Anther option might be coming back to SA (from Botswana) at Bokspits, doing the formalities at TR and only then go to Mabua. Might be a bit head over tail however.

    Not sure on hours, but it is not a quick job at all. Total cost would probably be +- R15k.

    Re: tdv6 vs v8 maintenance cost

    My D4 diesel cost probably R4k on servicing per year for the past 5 years. Plus things like tires but that's irrelevant. Cambelt service coming up in the next 18 months odd at probably R15k.

    Most of those upgrades have become standard on later models. The remainder is mostly probably things like a bottle opener here and a canvas bag there.

    Hint, check in with other dealers who order stock every month. They might have one on order already that is not taken yet. That's how I got mine pretty much immediately.

    Asking price is waaaaaay different than market price. R180k is Td5 territory. Anything more than R120k for a good condition Tdi is a rip-off. Nothing wrong with trying you luck at a higher price...
