    Re: Bicycle Rack for 2013 Ford EcoSport

    If you're not planning on keeping the car much longer, then I would rather suggest you look at a roof-mounted option, as it can be removed and re-fitted to almost every other vehicle. Fitting a tow...

    Re: Vehicle work bench and drawer system

    This is about the closest I could find. Look at the DTS-120 Extreme Duty slides.

    The 1950mm slide can handle 550kg, and costs £1,138.04 per pair. The 2000mm slide can do 488kg, and costs £1,165.91...

    Re: Amarok 3.0 towing demo

    I agree and disagree. From a factual POV it's not that great. From an entertaiment POV it was great. It's like comparing (old) Top Gear with 5th Gear. You watch them for different reasons. Both are...

    Re: Pajero 3.8 V6 2008 model

    There was a 2007 diesel Pajero on this here forum sold for R135K. Granted, it had 100,000km more than your partner's Pajero, but I think R145,000.00 from a dealer is fair.

    Re: Subaru XV - Thoughts?

    Are you sure about the German CVT gearbox? I know Audi had a CVT at some stage, but most of them are DSG (S Tronic) these days, which is not the same as CVT, hence the difference in feel.
