    Just a correction. It is a 3.5 V6

    Looks like it is in very good condition. Any chance of some interior pics?

    Re: Prado 120 towbar

    I got Autobar to make me a second shorter insert for caravan towing and a longer one for a bicycle rack for two bikes. With a tow ball on each it is quick and easy to swop between the two.

    I had Bridgstones on my Pajero and they were also very noisy, bought the car like that second hand. In my case new tyres solved the noise problem.

    Since the Pajero is for your wife, [emoji6][emoji6], you should make absolutely sure that all the 4x4 functions work and displays correctly on the dash.

    Is it the MitMak one you are looking at? With such low mileage it should have gone for annual services rather than the normal kilometer based services. The car looks good in the pictures!

    Since the resale value is important you need to buy as new as possible. My vote will also be for the 2.4.

    As far as I know you have to pay a subscription fee to get those books.
