    Not wanting to go OT or ignite a debate, but who earns that much? More people than you can imagine. Many guys in senior management positions in corporates. Owners of small/meduim businesses. The list is long. Commission earners in certain sectors easily take home 250 - 500k a month. I can quote some numbers that will make you think I am off my rocker, so I will just leave it there. (the affordability of the V6 Amarok is not even an issue, look at the number of BMW X5' s, VX Cruiser's, Rangie's, Porsche's etc on the road. But I agree - the mind boggles sometimes).

    With that said, the 190 kw Amarok should be a stonking good drive.

    Its rubber flooring and its crap. I have it in mine. Picks up every scratch and already looks tatty. Wouldn't recommend it. You can put rubber mats on top of the carpet floor.

    Don`t agree. Have had them in both my Amarok`s. Far better than carpeting I had in my previous Dtec Isuzu, even with rubber mats covering the carpets. When they got wet and dirty, it was a real schlep to get it clean. With my second Rok now at 263k, the few scratches on the rubber carpet is not an issue. (At least not for me)

    It cannot be too difficult to make the 165kw do 190kw if you really feel that the 165kw version is underpowered? Seems like a large premium for a relatively small increment in performance - to me anyways

    Only makes sense if you are beach launching a boat, otherwise why would the carpets get wet and dirty?
    But you are entitled to your opinion of course.

    Gert I think the question we need to ask is how many will be allocated to Namibia monthly? I dont think they even sell 10-15 variants of the Amarok a month under normal conditions in Namibia. So would expect an allocation of 5-7 units for the whole country per month. No wonder there is a 6 month waiting list.

    Once the hype is gone you will get one at a 10% discount because they will stand on the floor for months on end.

    Partly correct yes. It is amazing how fast the inside of any vehicle gets dirty during excursions in wet weather

    No, keep your current V6.

    I will be buying my dad's 2018 V6 next year August, when my current lease is up. That is already remapped and has 76mm exhaust as well. Make just over 230kw.

    I guess I will pay around R500k to R550k for it by then, which should be half price of what a 190KW V6 will be. Even though I can afford the 190kw V6, my inner accountant says no.

    Same here. Liked the rubber mats so much, that I bought two sets for my wife's and my current car(BMW).

    Would pick that option every time.

    This is where OEMs make the big money.

    You have to ask yourself, how much more does it cost to make a 2.0 4cyl engine to produce 180kw instead of 135kw. That is the difference between a 520i and 530i BMW. BMW charged almost R100k more.....

    Zimmermann alone sells about 6 V6's a month, last time I checked.
    My guess is around 20 a month will be allocated to Nam. For the initial rush anyway
