    There's always between 5 and 10 FJ's at We Buy Cars. 2010 to 2013 models for between R300k and R380k. Prices are not bad at all.

    While googling the harmonic dampers, mentioned above, I got a couple of hits about other D3's and D4's that were rear ended with minimal damage to the Discoveries. Impressive to say the least.

    Re: Land Cruiser 300 - 3.3L V6 diesel

    The 300's suspension does have a couple of tricks up its sleeve apparently. I've seen a couple of other videos where the suspension of the two are compared and the 300 is definitely better.

    Chip shortage plays a role but look at the August figures for the same vehicles.

    I went to Yokohama BluEarth 185/70R14 on a Swift. Works well. The Suzuki's gearing is fairly low so the extra bit of rubber works a treat. Came in at around R3800 for 4.
