Only 4x4's and not as many as you'd think. None of the pick-up 4x4's.

Amazingly, Daihatsu Fourtrack
Toyota Landcruiser
Mitzy Shogun LWB -3300kg
Not sure about the Nissan Patrol and Pathfinder, but they must be close.

So does my L200, it packed-up and I slid into the front of a minibus full of mentally handicapped people.

The minibus windows were extremely clean on the inside.

50 quid?! A BMW main stealer wouldn't check your tyre pressures for £50.
