    Re: Land Cruiser 300 - 3.3L V6 diesel

    Not strange at all. It is a well known fact that terrorist/ISIS received brand new Cruisers bought directly from dealers in the Middle East. Toyota has been trying to stop it for years.

    Re: Pajero 3.2 LWB questions

    I reckon it is a great deal.

    You will be paying at least R350k for a Prado of similar age with 250k+ on the clock. You will have more power and torque and the same reliability for a lot less mula!
