    Re: Replacing brake pads and discs on amarok

    The auto Amarok d/cab is heavy on brake pads.

    I did 28000km on my first set of pads, and 35000km on second set (Febi). Mostly town driving with the off 4x4 trail inbetween.

    No, look at the video again.

    This video is in the UK, the stated figures for the X350D and Amarok are the same, both quoted at 258hp. That roughly equates to 190kw.

  13. Re: VW Amarok vs Ford F150 Raptor v Ranger Raptor v Mercedes X-Class

    Nope, that was expected. The Amarok make 180kw compared to the 190kw of the Merc. The Merc is heavier though, with a very old fashioned 7 speed auto box.

    When the X350D was launched my brother...

    I expected the Ranger Raptor to come last, as it is way down on power compared to the Merc and VW.

    The F150 was a big disappointment though. I guess it's weight and possibly long gear ratios...

    Most synthetic oils are OK up to 130, and even 140 for short periods of time. Around 105 to 110 should be normal.
