    Re: someone needs to buy this, new SQ7

    Still long for the old 6l V12 TDi. Was driven as a passenger in one by my friends wife that collects speeding tickets as memento's. Man that thing was a monster.

    At that level of acceleration, I wonder what kind of G-forces you will be pulling. Wonder how many will pass out before they reach 100kph. ;D

    Re: Forum help seblief

    Uit persoonlike ervaring met albei as passasiers sal ek sÍ die Ford ry bietjie sagter as die Toyota as jy van die teer af is. So as jy baie van die teer gaan af wees moet dit dalk 'n oorweging wees.
