Anthony, are you not selling your V8 Pajero?
Or is that already long gone?

Ja, I had a crack at it, but I've got my eye on another prize.
Hush, hush, G13 classified secret stuff for now :lol:
Keep your eyes on the forum on Thursday and you'll see :biggrin:
I'll be asking the fundies what they think.

The Bela Bela Patrol was just a bit far out to jump a plane and go buy.
More info and photos from the owner would possibly have swayed me more.
The timing on my side was also a bit bad to jump a flight suddenly.

Well done Anthony, may she give you plenty of worry free kilos :thumbup:

Again, thank you for the kind remarks.

I sold my pajero but ended up having to use the cash for other issues.

Now the BMW must go. I'm advertising it on gumtree, olx and the 4x4community forum. lovely car, really. never gave a moment's trouble but I don't do debt funding so the one has to make way for the other.

I can assure you all that I will enjoy it.

As i said to Tinus (the turbonator) Lotz. After I've driven it for a while, if i find it needs a bit more pep then I will add the hairdryer option. Till then it will be fluid changes, bits and pieces which need attention and fiting my winch, fridge, inverter etc into the thing.

I had a 4.2D and they really are amazing vehicles, but seriously... life is too short to drive naturally aspirated ! :lol:

For now add a free flow mild steel exhaust. That will help slightly...and sound pretty bad ass :blonde:
