Re: Cruise control

I am interested in doing the same on my 3.0 TDi, but the kits seem to be in the region of R7.5k. I don't know if that is the fitted price. However, at that price I would rather not.....

Re: Project Snowy met n turbo

The Nissan 1 Tonner bakkie used the 2.7 NA engine, I would imagine it was actually designated a D27 not TD27. Later a local mod at the Nissan factory in Rosslyn, saw turbos fitted to the normal D27 engines with huge overheating problems built in. As far as I am aware, no locally produced 2.7 Nissans...

Re: Is tyre life still 5 years on tyres?

With a friend in HQ of major insurance company , this claim would be denied due to expiry date of tyre. https://www.arrivealive.co.za/Tyre-Expiry Grant, That piece of journalism seems very old to me, dates of 2005 are mentioned. It also talks of a 4 year tyre life, when I know for a fact that manuf...
