    Re: Accommodation in/near Stellenbosch.

    Somerset West/Strand/Gordon's Bay are also alternatives to CL, but the traffic to & from Stellies is a bit of a nightmare.

    There are some new developments in the farm areas around Stellenbosch,...

    Re: Suggestions for new trail in Western Cape

    Not at this time of the year.

    Kroonland has a nice, longish mud pit in winter, but recovery is almost 100% assured, as is a muddy cabin [emoji16]

  9. Re: How do you spec the most offroad worthy New Defender?

    Not nearly enough, 1.8-1.5 is adequate for gravel.

    For sand, you need to be at 1.0 bar or even 0.8 - try it and it will make a world of difference.

    Defender Re: TD5 Exhayst manifold.

    Had the same issue on my D2 Td5, resolved by doing Ceramic coating + Wurth studs + Removal of some of the webbing between the manifold pipes (this helps the manifold expand without pulling itself out)

    Re: Puma 2.4 - Long story and a Toc-Toc

    Yikes, that's a hefty repair bill there.

    The local indie uses this outfit for their replacement engines, might be worth to get another quote? https://lrenginemecca.co.za/

    Hmm, could be. A lot of Aussies also take theirs into the Outback with relatively few issues, and you should see what some of the Yanks do to theirs as well :o

    Re: Is this it?

    IIRC, the 2016 update to the new infotainment system (InControl), was bug-ridden. But a glitchy infotainment system is hardly going to leave you stranded on the side of the road.

    Mine's a 2015...

    Haha, no, I was training a friend of mine in sand driving.

    He just bought a Triton bakkie to go camping in Botswana, and has never driven in sand before.

    I would recommend R&D Offroad for quality custom work - drawer system, tanks, etc.

    Not cheap, but best quality work in the Cape IMHO.

    Yeah, the major flaw in the New Defender is those crappy Ingenium engines and the oil dilution issue.

    Been hearing a faint whining noise from the back of the car for a couple of weeks now, so I took it to LR.
