Welcome Marius. No problem if you do not have a Hilux (yet), it is sharing your passion for the great outdoors that counts.

I don't really know him. He arrived just after I recovered the patrol and then he recovered the syncro that was stuck.

Never even got to shake his hand. It was a rainy day so we got on with business and the rest of the time we were in the car.

Okay so now I'm curious I see the Toureg, and this huge big axle twister, and I'm curious did this vehicle go down this hump. My sister drives one of those and if it did I could get her to go on a trail with me in her Toureg?

I bought the car and 2 months down the line the engine had a huge miss. Rings broke in cylinder 5 and slowly destroyed the bore.

It was a simple joke , very common when some replies on 3 year old topic, I'm sure Glen is wearing his big boys pants and saw it as such. ;-)
