  1. I'd rather go more modern with a higher mileage. And by heavy traffic I meant Auckland's rush hour : D
  2. From what I've seen 9.5 for a prefacelift 3.0 is not a bargain at all. You're also looking at 5AT vs. CVT. If you're mostly doing inner city/heavy traffic commute then 3.0 will certainly suck more, open road they're all good. Definitely better for towing purposes. I'd certainly aim for a facelift 2006+ 3.0 rather than a prefacelift. 5th gen have about the same boot but definitely more head and leg room for the rear passengers if matters for you.
  3. Got her some Vossens wrapped in Michelins PS 4S. 9.5/245 front and 10.5/285 rear
  4. There's fark all clearance where stock one goes, as it's flat and wide. It does pretty good job too and as soon as you get rid of it you'd run into all sorts of noise related issues. I had an AdrenalinR resonator/mid muffler installed and even though mine was only very moderately lowered I'd still scrape the thing every now and then... If the vehicle in question is the one I think of (resides or used to in Kingsland) then sorry but it sound horrendous. In my humble opinion of course. Can only imagine what it sounds like from the inside.
  5. Very likely it is a transmission related issue. Do not remember what I had flashing when I farked up mine by trying to reset the TCU with that freeware (ECU flash or whatever it's called) . Ended up going to a dealer and having the TCU reflashed and relearnt. You need a workshop with a decent scanner.
  6. Haha I made my diesel to sound like an M6 once... didn't like it much as it was a bit out of sync.
  7. Front Straight bolt-on, any version Rear Calipers ver 7-10 "Dog bone" adapters DBA rotors/thickened pads/drum inserts I have a set of calipers that needs a Respray, all yours for seven fiddy.
  8. Cusco are good, so are Beatrush or any other rigid braces really. Sorry on my phone and don't have the part numbers handy but should be easily googlable. There should be a pdf Cusco catalogue available online.
  9. I would not recommend the one with the built-in stopper. It's got so much flex/leverage that I doubt it actually does much as a booster brace. From my personal observations anyway. I'd rather go two separate components. Massive +1 for the rear bottom underbody brace with integrated swaybars supports.
