  1. Poll: Re: a Dedicated trail vehicle - What one would you choose from these?

    I laughed at the Rubi drivers being bored as a good friend of mine said as soon you engage the lockers nothing is fun anymore.

    The Rubi is by far the most capable vehicle, but owning a Jimny...

    Re: Has the Wrangler bubble burst?

    My opinion, with Wrangler’s just as with Jimny’s, one doesn’t just buy the vehicle, but also the lifestyle associated with it.

    I feel Wrangler people, if they have the financial means, will still...

  5. Re: We need to define what exactly “camping” is.

    I’m definitely a cheap camper. If I drove a vehicle capable of giving me more than 4.8km/l I’d also probably try chalets etc. Fuel is the most expensive component of going away for us, even for 5...

    At one stage I was looking for a vehicle that can do 10km/l, is affordable, family safe, have Bluetooth, 4x4 capable, fun factor.

    Most possibly the funniest post ever. You sir are a legend. Sometimes ride comfort and gadgets doesn’t make up for enjoyment. You’ll thoroughly enjoy that vehicle, granted you know what your in for.

    Re: This is not good for the Mozambique

    And I agree with you. However the British and Germans, Dutch, Portuguese aren’t here anymore to stabilise Africa, so someone should.

    I’m choosing the better evil, the one I would live with easier.

    Would you prefer the Russians or China to rather get involved? Iran?

    Where should the influence come from? Africa will never be Africa, someone will be involved.

    It was either the US or China. I prefer the non communist help.

    If you didn’t notice, this is another cold war. The play ground is still Africa. And the US are behind.

    Re: Used Cruiser prices

    Supply, demand and (perceived) reliability.

    Before I get stoned, I drive one myself, 105 FZ, but would just as easily bought a Patrol if I could find a good one at that stage.
