    Re: Marius's Gen4 Pajero life thread

    Cool, thanks.

    I have a 2008 GLX but with an aftermarket CC system installed.

    Would I need to disable that first?

    Sorry for all the noob questions.

    V cool.

    Are you just able to remove the existing plastic covers on your GLX steering wheel and plug those in?

    Please can you post some pics of your installation?

    What did it cost you?

    The pink base to the long upturned bill is also distinctive when separating from other waders (not other Godwits).

    Really?

    Surely the car is using engine compression to brake on descent?

    Or does your Gen 4 have some additional hill descent features?

    From your list, would you say they solved all of them for the Gen 4, and would you add any major issues for the Gen 4?
