So, I just bought my first real.4x4. Largely based on information I got from this forum. Thanks to all of you! My wife will be the regular driver, I drive a platkar (Audi A4 - my fourth one). We love camping and hiking, but the way we used to enjoy the outdoors changed radically since the birth of my awsome little girl 5 years ago. So, the Forester just does not have enough space and had to make way for something bigger. So I looked around, did lots of research and found a very clean second hand Amarok. And so, a new chapter is about to start for us...
