    Re: Mazda BT-50 purchasing advice

    My mate replaced his Ranger 3.0 clutch with a Flint kit, no flywheel just the pressure plate, friction plate and release bearing, wasn't terribly expensive.

    Re: New Grand Vitara unveiled

    And the pathetic engine outputs???

    Why not just make this the new Vitara, and give us a "Grand" Vitara with at least some offroad ability.

    Brand preference and looks will be a major factor. BT50 was a Ranger underneath, but they could hardly pay people to take them off the showroom floor.

    Not at all, only 10mm taller but a bit of squish when fitted so diameter is almost identical. Can feel they're a bit heavier but not enough to make things unpleasant.
