    Baie goedkoper en makliker om met ń import te vervang.

    Nie te moeilik om self te doen nie.

    Volledige Lexus ombouing is nie goedkoop nie.

    Heel moontlik dubbel die koste van ń import.

    Not available anymore. Complete shaft only at about R 5.5k.

    What viscosity oil are you using?
