  1. Re: Custom Thule Overlanding Trailer For Suzuki SJ413 - Luna

    You may be in luck, this TopAcryl DTM isn't made by Duram?

    Duram's DTM is garbage but I assumed DTM was their trademark.
  2. Re: Custom Thule Overlanding Trailer For Suzuki SJ413 - Luna

    Careful with what I'm assuming is Duram DTM, in my experience it's more a cosmetic paint than a tough durable paint.

    Is a tiny bulge on a new tyre acceptable?

    I have a set of new Goodyear tyres on my run around, less than a month old, around 600km on them and I noticed a small bulge on them. The angle of the light was just catching the tyre perfectly,...

    Re: Puma 2.2 2013 Immobiliser ECU burn

    If your insurance profile states factory immobiliser you'll have to adjust that to no factory immobiliser after removing it, other than that I can't see an issue with insurance.
