    Re: Huge land rover dilemma

    For what its worth, I very seriously considered a D4 V8, the TDi still seems much too risky for me even though some folks never break a crank. In the end the V8 will just make me sour with the fuel...

    Re: Range Rover Evoque

    To just pick up on this thread again, does anyone service their won Evoque? I see it seems to be a Ford motor so parts and oil can't really be a huge issue (as some have stated), my only worry is...

    Re: Touareg 2012 3.6L v6

    When I did my research the 3.6 VR6 was a good option, but fairly heavy on fuel (You will possibly see 10l/100 on the open road but I can't imagine anything below 14l/100 in town - I am guessing, but...

    Re: My Touareg failed me

    Exactly the same reason why I am attracted to German cars and Luxo barges in general, fantastic value for money if you buy a little older. Yes there are some risks there, but so far I am happy with...

    Re: Is the extra cost worth it?

    I also like the Kunho's, good tire ate a reasonable price.

    My thoughts on tires are that the very expensive ones can't be 2x + better than the cheapest ones, but I would also be hesitant to go for...

    Re: Jaguar XJ - to buy or not

    Well I have an A4 and a Q5 and both have given me good service so far. The A4 is on 227k km currently. I can work on both these cars myself, where I cannot work on a Jag myself. Not that an awful...

  15. Re: R5000,00 to replace Audi lost key!! Any cheaper alternatives?

    What was the outcome here? What key does your A3 use, a normal "key" or the small "soap on a rope" type the A4 and up has? To do the full monty on an Audi/VW you would need VCDS which is pretty...

    Re: Touareg: which one NOT to get?

    The Treg's are great, but can be expensive to maintain, and unless you can swing a spanner yourself (even a little will help) your costs will be higher. I am not sure what his budget is, but newer...
