very nice had a 7 seater as loan car with heads up display. Although last 2 seats more occasional compared to the Disco 4 which are fine to use for big trips..5 seater TDV6. Standard 19 inch rims (which I have had painted gloss black) giving me a bit more sidewall (Full size spare) Loving it.
Nice looking rig mateAlright, i'll get the ball rolling.
I thought this might be a good spot for people to show off their pride and joy. Its all well and good having and Expanda, but unless you have a tow vehicle, the van won't leave the driveway. So here's a chance for people to show of their cars, give to feedback and maybe a run down of some mods done to help with the holidaying experience.
Me, I have a 2006 3.0L Nissan Patrol. I got it second hand, 2 yrs old with 30,000km on the clock plus a number of factory fitted goodies, inlcuding; Alloy bar, spotties, snorkel, tint.
Since owning it I have replaced the alloy bullbar with a steel ARB one, BFG A/T's, added my old trusty GME UHF and aerial, dobinson suspension and a great Alpine stereo with Parrot Bluetooth and wired in my old 75aH Thumper battery pack to run the 40L Waeco. This week i am fitting a proper dual battery system under the bonnet. The best modifications for holidaying by far would be the polyair airbages and Polaris reversing camera where the screen lives on my sun visor.
Wish list include a winch, and to complete my crappy home made rear shelf in the cargo area. I have a longer wish list but i am being realistic here.
Economy wise i get about 16-17 L/100km while towing the expanda which would weigh about 1.6 to 1.7t, which is OK to me. It cruises nicley at about 95km/hr but feels like its working too hard over that so i'm happy to take it slow.
I love my 4wding, and that is where this car really shines
