  1. Re: 2nd Hand Vehicle for Towing recommendation

    It depends a lot on in what shape the car was when you bought it, and what has been done. 150k km is fairly on the low side for these cars. They can be expensive to maintain, and I would recommend...
  2. Re: Please talk me out of buying a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon...

    If you get it checked out and it checks out there really isn't any good reason not to buy it. It isn't a Fortuner, but I am sure you are well aware of it, and since you had a Sahara, you are familiar...
  3. Re: Tyres, Mags and Rims: Trade, Buying, Selling, Swap, Give-away or whatever ....

    I am looking for a set of 225-70R17 AT tires as a set to be used for holidays and gravel travel. They don't have to be new but have to still be in a safe condition. Thanks!
  4. Re: 2nd Hand Vehicle for Towing recommendation

    I will probably get shot for this, but a 3.0 TDi T2 Touareg is a very capable towing vehicle, it will certainly be cheaper to buy than the other options you have listed. It is only a 5 seater (where...

    You can't go wrong with Bulli, and you are PTA based, which makes things even simpler. Give him a call, he is in Silverton.

    That seem like a ridiculous argument, surely the nation who's resources are used should see some long-term benefit from it? Otherwise it is tantamount to theft. Seems pretty straightforward to me...

    I am not sure if 17"s will fit, but you may find a large difference in tire brand and type. I assume pressures are the same from the 2.0 to the 3.0?

    I basically agree with everything you said, except for "more", I think the answer is "some". As an example, Prado sales in 2019 were 1010 units, so to show a 10% growth they only need to sell 1121...
