My next tow cart will be auto!

I am setting off tonight from Manchester to Weymouth towing - so the new clutch will get a good test!

I had a clutch in my first one at 27k(it wasnt broken but they changed it as i wasn't happy judder on start off) and it went on to 100k before I sold it
Second one did 18k before I chopped it in for this one

Now auto 190 + DTE box + air filter They say about 210
Nice truck

Auto is ok but you have no braking on over run, not much of a problem when towing but in the snow it makes a big difference

Me dad had a green and silver L200 in Cyprus, it looked jacked up with big alloys and tyres, only problems was the battery failed in the heat! I love it, been over the mountains off road and on the beaches too, took my kids to turtle beach in it and found some hatched turtle eggs which they loved.

Had to removed the film from the blacked out windows to get it through the mot.

I love driving it, but the turning circle is really pants!!

In cyprus they drive crew cabs as they are cheaper on tax as they are classed as Agricultural vehicles

Here's my X-Trail with fromt and rear towbars, 95,000 miles and only ever had one set of brake pads and one set of tyres other than its anual service.
