    Re: OME vs Bilstein B8

    OK, so I bought a set of B6's (fronts) from Mikem yesterday. R7475 for the two.

    I asked about the B8, but their advice was to rather go for the B6 as the B8 is not serviceable.

    Re: Amarok door not locking

    Mine does exactly this. Click-click.... click-click.... :mad:

    It's intermittent as well. Did it for a few weeks a while ago, then worked perfectly for months, and now it started again.

    Re: 90lt National Luna Twin

    Re: Amarok 4x4 reverse

    Re: New Seikel Kalahari bumper - Amarok

    It does look nice! When I was shopping for one, the Rhino was better looking (to me) than the old Seikel, but this one would have been a serious contender. Pricing also similar.
