That millage is impressive, NT’s are the best.

When it comes to Land Rover’s, you must do your homework.

We had ours for 14 years and it’s been overall reliable but like
Any other euro cars, services have to be up to date and you must use
Quality approved fluids.

There are many series and land Rover and Range Rover have both
Bmw and Ford influences in them and you have know what you are buying.

Air suspension issues, electronic hand brakes etc the more that they have inside the more I stay away.

I don’t like new ones at all, I like 4wd’s to have more of a square shape plus since
2012 they were influenced by Tata so…

Personally if I was to buy any of them I would go for the one that in my opinion
Is the most reliable. Discovery 3 or 4 Petrol 4.0 litre version.

I do like the old 406 too.

M3 are seem to be good cars , never driven one though.

Did you consider Volvo’s XC90 or Bmw x5's? You get them dirt cheap these days.

my friends are all 2018 to 2019 models, and still every time I see them they are in a loan car, but I get alot of pics sent as the loan cars are going through rivers etc

M3 is very impressive for power, but just prefer a manual straight up

Ive driven XC90s, X5 Mpacks , and X5M , they are cheap as, I can get one X5 V8 at the moment for $1200, but never liked the way they drive, XC90 feels like a tank but boring, the X5 TD was fun with the turbo note but kinda like the XC90, the X5M was better, but only hit 20k on the clock and required a motor under warranty

most of these cars are all under the VW Group now, most cars are all the same, only tesla have been making new things with style

my AA Cordia has a small lower Section where the cassette would go, but it wont fit a double din head unit, any sugestions ( maybe a magna part or another console front section maybe

I want to fit the Head unit there and 3 gauges in the single din slit next to the mirror switch

I found this head unit for a good price, I usually run android, but in the Cordia I would not have too much time to watch Stan or netflix ... index.html

My Cordia has a manual steering rack in it, I also have a full power steering rack kit to go back into it

I was thinking of getting a electric column from a hyundai, that way it stays manual and no fluid required, but you get full power steering, anyone else attempted this ??

Post subject:  Re: SIVART's new toy

found a hyundai electric power steering, but decided no as when I pulled it part to check it for weakness, the Gear section was made out of plastic, so Ive got a 2013 mirage version, so I will see if I can do anything with that

What was the quote on colour change?

I would go dark green, I don’t think I’ve ever see one in dark green.

not sure on price but, but the mrs car was done at a very good price (Tropic Motors in Knox), I would be doing alot of the work, just be getting them to do the finishers
