    Don't want to conflate issues here, but that would have been my preference. They do seem to be nice wagons and I am sure they will hold their value better than a similar ford.

  30. Ford & Mazda Re: Everest 2.0 sit or biturbo?? Help needed

    Agree with above. You may not want to go 4x4, but that is also because you can't. If you have the option of both I would go 4x4 every time. There is no comparison launching a boat with 2wd vs 4wd.

    No idea , but I would check the load rating of the BMW rims if you look at going that route. Landrover rims would probably be fine. Do Rims have a speed rating?
