    Re: 2x4 SUVís - whatís their purpose?

    I just visited a friend on his farm this weekend.

    Whilst my XC60 with UHP highway tyres handled the gravel road like a champ, I wouldn't want to do that same road with that car and those tyres on...

    Re: The Volkswagen up! as a viable city car choice

    Bloody hell, that's sad. My dad and my wife had to drive my Insight for a bit over the last while, which saw me in the Up!. Ours now has 22k km on the clock. Every time I drive it, I have to smile...

    Ek moet sÍ, met daai "afslag" is dit glad nie so 'n slegte deal nie.

    Do you know if it has a 6 or 8 speed gearbox?
  5. Re: First real expense on the XC60 in roughly 2 years.

    That is very interesting. I know the S40 also had the 2.0 5cyl D4 for a short while circa 2011-ish. I nearly bought one a few weeks ago. The 2.0 5cyl is the D3 in the pre face-lift XC60 as well as...
  6. Re: First real expense on the XC60 in roughly 2 years.

    Really? I didn't know you got the D4 as a 5cyl? I thought the D3 was the 2.0 5 Cyl and the D4 was the new 4cyl with the 8 speed box.
  7. Re: First real expense on the XC60 in roughly 2 years.

    Bought at 98k km now on 120k km. So about 22k km in 21 months.
  8. Re: First real expense on the XC60 in roughly 2 years.

    In all seriousness, I'd recommend a 5 cyl diesel (2.4D, D3 / D5) to anyone. The D4 4cyl, I'm not familiar enough with to comment. The D5 is sedate in town and reasonably frugal (10l/100km) and goes...
  9. First real expense on the XC60 in roughly 2 years.

    So we've owned the XC60 for nearly 2 years now and other than fuel and one service (R1900-odd) it hasn't cost us anything else in terms of maintenance.

    On Saturday my wife called me to say the...

    Hi Petri

    Didn't know you still had the Audi.

    Kellett here in Bloem does a brilliant job with those roof linings.

    If you are in this area at some stage.

    I'm quite sure you can disengage the handbrake some other way.

    Re: My W116 280 SE

    Indeed. My 350SE had the 3 speed. It worked surprisingly well, though it sometimes needed some encouragement as the vacuum supply was dodgy. Regularly saw 160km/h+ on the highway.
