    Re: Freelander 2 Si4

    My Disco Diesel gave me 15l/100 km in town driving, best was around 11l/100km on open road. I believe your foot might have a big influence, but also the road and traffic you face. A 16km round trip...

    Re: My Touareg failed me

    If you do your research you probably won't have much issues.

    I didn't do my research, and bought a Disco 3 TDV6. That one bit me in the behind like you cannot believe.
    I did my research, and...

    Strange, Absa should come to the party here and sort it out for you.

    How old is your car. Anyway, yes, known problem, and JLRSA doesn't help people with this issue. Speak to Mikebob, he can probably sort you out.

    Re: 2014 GL350 Bluetec- Why not?

    As a side note, if I remember correctly, Johan Maree here on the forum got quoted something in the region of 80-100k for a turbo replacement. So yeah, very nice cars, but if you buy a luxury car,...

    Re: Can I Fix This Tyre?

    More a dig at the general idea.

    It's kinda similar to asking whether one walk over fire. Of course you can, and if you do it quick enough you might even get away without being burned. But, are...

    Yeah, but the Freelander 2 doesn't, well at least mine doesn't.

    I can't do the rear pads on the BMW F10 though, as it's EPB, and I don't have a computer thingy to disable it.

    I think it is a good idea not to cross the borders. Is it still only a dirt road, or are we looking at a track? In essence, will it be challenging, will I get to test my FL's new tyres ;D?
