Re: New to this forum- Need some advice please

I think R200k is on the upper limit of what I would be prepared to pay for a vehicle of this age and mileage, but it is very well kitted. Problem is, you will have to remove some of that for your stated purpose. I think 270k km is reasonable for a 14-year-old car. That's less than 20k km per year. A...

Re: Patrol Written off

Ouch. Sorry to hear this.

Since the buy-back is less than you spent on the blower, i would recommend buying it yourself, swopping motors and then selling the motor from the new car. You should get at least half the buy-back...

Re: rear brakes glazing and making lots of noize

Gentlemen, is the hand brake not on the propshaft? Glazing is a process caused by over-heating, and it would be very strange to see that on a game viewer, unless the brakes are adjusted too tightly or your drivers have a habit of resting their clutch feet on the brake pedal. I would just adjust them...

Re: rear brakes glazing and making lots of noize
