Re: Happy new Prado owner - new shocks and new Muds!!

Het weer n trip Kaapstad toe gedoen, eerste keer met die Mud Terrains op. My vorige beste brandstofverbruik was 8.2 km/l. Hierdie keer het ek net oor die 7 km/l gekry, insluitend swaar verkeer gedeelte tussen Somerset Wes en Simonstad, en Simonstad na middestad die volgende oggend. Ek is doodtevrede...

Re: Car Insurance short duration

Insurance through any broker with any insurer is normally a monthly paid policy, which runs monthly. If by short period you mean less than a month, you might find it difficult to get a new vehicle only policy for a short period. If you have an existing policy, add the vehicle from the required date ...

Happy new Prado owner - looking for top hinge for tail door!

Hi guys - on my 2002 Prado VX 3.4 V6 A/T 95 series I am looking for a top hinge for the tail door (5th door) as mine is very worn out and it causes the door the rattle and bump when driving dirt roads or over speed bumps, and it is rather noisy.

Ek kyk ook na die Goodride MT teen R2 200 elk - blykbaar "n goedkoper boetie" van Kumho. Volgens wat ek op die internet kon optel is die Goodride n "12-ply" maar ek neem ...
