  1. WTH is that Lumpy thing? Oh my bad its a Renault P.S : Are those holes in the widebody flares or lights. Can't make out in the pic
  2. No wonder I don't like any of them
  3. I've thing I've noticed smaller engines in SUVs specially full sized ones really doesn't translate to superior mileage. Example 4 cyl Prado barely gives a few kms over the V6 version and really shit power. So in SUVs unless it's diesel vs Petrol its always better to get the bigger engine.
  4. I agree a very hard pedal and weak brakes do indicate a weak brake booster. If it has ABS then the ABS module could be knackered which usually means big $$$$
  5. My Mrs Company rental Yaris 1.5 gives some real bad ass mileage. 70dhs to fill to the brim and easily does 500kms in city and 600plus highway. Should be getting the Indian made Sunny soon lets see how that compares. Although not looking forward to the ugly POS. Dunno what happened to Nissan, seems like they go out of their way to make ugly cars.
  6. Perfect use of the Multipla for its intended customers
  7. Well depends on what your definition of the good old days is? Do you like the ability to dismantle and then reassemble an entire car with a 10mm spanner and a flat screw driver but then ride in a donkey cart with leaf spring suspension, moody carb that wont start on cold mornings and when it does start only a few people can actually make it work right so its not running too rich or too lean and when its working you are getting horrible gas mileage due to its inefficient design or having the stopping distance of a ocean liner with those horrible drum brakes or having massive 8 liter V8 engines that only produce 130hp and struggle to even pull themselves up a hill. Sorry I think, I'll give those old days a miss! In this country is a different situation. Majority of the people live in apartments and have no place to work on their cars, second of all its too hot most times of the years to be out for more than 10 minutes and that pace of life is very busy here, most people leave for work early in the morning and don't return until late in the day and whatever free time they do have they would rather spend with family, friends or doing something they love rather than wrenching on their cars out on a busy street side out in the sun. Not anymore in fact more people getting into DIY because of it. Now even manufacturer specific diagnostic scanners are very affordable and anyone can plug one in and give it a go. I rather not get too oily and undo two nuts and swap out a specific coil pack or CKP sensor without any guesswork which my scanner told were busted then having to fiddle with a distributor and a timing strobe light that is after I have spent hours trying to pinpoint the issue in the first place.
  8. For me the best and most comfy seats are from a P38 range rover, so much so that I even retro fitted them in my Land Rover discovery and another friend after checking them out fitted them out in his Jeep XJ. I also have the latter next gen of Range Rover the L322 but still prefer the seats of the older one. Personally having sat in many generations of the Pajero I dont find them anything to write home about. Just your average run of the mill basic stuff.
  9. Well to be fair thats not the worst example of pre 80s ugly European cars The Hillman Minx and the frog eyed sprite come to mind
  10. Almost every European or Japanese car before the 80s
  11. Was that the bullock towing rope he was using!?
  12. I think its a pretty cool little ride, lightweight with proper 4x4 pinnings. But if you like pissing contests of who can climb xyz big dune from xyz side and do triple toe spins on top of so and so dune then this might not be the one for you. But if you like something in which you can have a decent amount of fun in the dunes then its a coop toy to have
  13. As for the OP. I'd have myself the last year of the 3rd Gen Camaro Z28. I think its one of the coolest looking Muscle Cars ever made.
