Ian thanks for the invite, unfortunately I'm stuck in the DRC for the next few weeks, so maybe next time.

As soon as Vodacom gets their network sorted, I'll have a look at yours and maybe send you a PM. Nothing works in this country!

Welkom Bernard, lekker om jou hier ook te sien.

Jy kan regtig 'n goeie 4.5 koop vir R130k, en selfs so nou en dan 'n 4.8 as jy gelukkig is.

As hiersie karre goed onderhou word, gaan daar regtig min iets breek, maar omdat hulle relatief skaars is, kan dit soms lol om onderdele te kry. Wat jy egter sal vind is dat die ouens hegte bonde vorm, en almal help wat sukkel, en dit maak op daarvoor.

Oompie, ek weet nie van Bernard se fotos nie, maar sy videos is eersteklas!
Mag ons ons kenniskry met lekkerkry aanhoukry.

Bernard nog iets om na te kyk is die trim wat n mens ind die modelle kry. n Mens kry die GL. Dit is die bassiese model. As jy na n 4.5 kyk kyk of hy n ekstra petrol tenk in het. Nie al die GL modelle hy die ekstra tenk in nie. Jy sal dit in die dash sien op die petrol aanwyser. Daar is n tweede level aanwyser as daar 2 tenks in is.

Mat een tenk dash:

Met twee tenks:

Soos jy sien het die petrol tenk aanwyser nog n level bo die hoof tenk. Die GL het ook materiaal sitplekke en net n airbag aan die bestuurders kant. Daar is net n gewone aircon in en nie cruise control nie.

Die GRX trim modelle het leer sitplekke in, Cruise control, Climate Control. Daar is ook n air bag aan die passasier se kant en aircon beheer vir die agterste mense.

Jy behoort die GL goedkoper te kan optel as die GRX. Kyk maar wat jy wil he en wat jy kan bekostig. Wees ook geduldig. Die nice karre is daar buite. Ek sien Gumtree het weer n paar karre by gekry wat goed lyk.

Groete

Hello to everyone. Obviously I am new to the forum. :biggrin:

I have basically driven only VWs for most of my life, but I have always had a thing for Patrols and I think that it might be time to get one. :rockon:
So now I need to decide which model to go for. My brother-in-law, who has had probably all the Nissans ever made, suggested a 4.8 liter.

What do you guys suggest SGL, 4.5, 4.8, diesel? Unfortunately I'm not Rockerfeller, so I'm looking at something that I can buy cash.

Thanks in advance for any help.


Bernard joint the forum about two years ago and was on the search for a Patrol for the long journey......


I have just learned from another forum that Bernard has passed away today from cerebral Malaria.

Very sad news.....

My heartfelt condolences to his wife Sonja and family.

Henning & Megan
