    Apparently Pajero owners don't know the limitations of what they are driving, even get pulled into a Granadier thread by Toyota drivers :). What is the world coming to!

    Re: Land Cruiser 300 - 3.3L V6 diesel

    The same engine is used in the Lexus LS500 since 2018. In the LS the consumption is between 8.3 and 10.5 km/l in real world mixed driving which is pretty impressive.

    The LS weighs 2.1T and the 300...

    Re: Land Cruiser 300 - 3.3L V6 diesel

    Maybe not that far fetched. The LC 300 will not be exported to the US but they will get the Lexus LX version of the 300 apparently (LX 600).

    From Polokwane head further north to Louis Trichard. In Louis Trichard you can head east to the KNP via the R524 which will bring you to the Punda Maria gate.

    For some reason most of the caravan manufacturers limit the amount you can load. Very few road caravans can load more than say 200kg.

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

    It works the same way as noise cancelling headphones.

    Microphones pick up noise in the cabin and then use the radio system to cancel the noise with opposing frequencies.
