I had heard that too. Which is a pity, I had the QFM HPX on a previous car and they held up well to enthusiastic driving without too much...

Yes, as a general statement I do agree that there is less risk as a Seller than as a Buyer. But that doesn't mean that things can't or...

With respect to the aftermarket headunit, it depends if it was declared on your insurance or not. If you declared it, then the payout will...

I just fitted some Falken ZE914s to my better half's car in that size after seeing some good reviews of them. Falken are presently doing 4...

I have no doubt that the Gladiator ute would be incredibly capable for a new off-the-showroom-floor 4WD. How many buyers will need this...

Prado is also significantly slower. I had one for a week as a hire car and simply couldn't live with it. I ended up buying a Pajero Sport....

No problem. Would like to pay it off sooner but haven't been diligent enough to funnel in extra repayments.

I spent $55k on a new 4WD. My income is <$100k per year. I took out a personal loan to buy it but had a reasonable deposit (after a good...

An AWD might be okay on some beaches and tracks, but given what you want to do, I think you'll quickly regret buying one. You need a proper...

Utes ride quite firm as their suspension is designed to carry a heavy load at the rear. If you've never driven a ute before I'd suggest...
