Re: ATF To Replace or to Flush

Thanks guys. I also thought that oil looked pretty good. I just really wanted to look as the car is already on +300k on the clock. I might then just do a normal oil change Just one thing.

Re: Dummy Light brought to life

Unfortunatly a minimum Quantity order was not high up on the Chinese uppliers list of priorities and I lost my patience milking information out of them. I have now ordered a set of Depo light frm the UAE. If you know someone that can bring them here for you it only works out to R900 for the set. I a...
