    Got my hands on an old headlight so I can play around with options to remove the orange and chrome. This is as far as I got. Not 100% the way I want it yet.

    Body coming off today. Then we'll know the extent of the damage to the motor. The waiting is killing me, but in the long run it might pay to wait.
    The dealer has a 2009 "S" coming in this week and I can have a look at that and do a swap if I want to.

    Playing the waiting game at the moment. Once I have more info I'll throw it out here and ask for advice from the LANDY LOVERS!

    SWAMBO wanted some bricks for the flower bed edges, and had arranged for some left overs from a site, so I fetched them on Saturday with my Disco bakkie.
    Mud is from Dirt n Dust on Saturday too.

    Good day Deon,

    Which ever way it turns out, all the best. Just keep the other want to own a D3 away from th 09S till the assessment is over on yours. See they also have a black one parked outside (although not very practical colour for off roading)

    Installed some LED interior lights. WOW what a difference. (Bought 12, tested all of them in the shop. Only 6 worked with the 7th on tenter hooks, the remaining 5 who knows).

    Hi George

    Try to move the little wires on them a little. Sometimes they do not make good contact.

    I replaced my viscous unit as it had seized up. The tensioner pulley bearing also decided it was time to stop working so I replaced that along with the drive belt.

    I can finally hear the V8 exhaust note again!

    I have been given 1st option on the 09S when it comes in.
    I've had a look at the Black S outside and not too impressed. My love for black cars died with the last Yaris.

    They just got another black 1 in. 2006 V8 HSE R205K - Does not interest me.
