Its for the high-line 4motion model with some extras. Does the auto not have the hill stop thingy then ? I've got to confess I've not yet looked into the full spec as it might just be too much for what is a truck at the end of the day

I had the choice of all of them just like you and tested them all. Had to say I kept going back to the vw. It's also got a staggering 400nm torque

Beware if you buy an auto nissan as I don't think it has a locking rear diff as standard

Further to our chat the other day, if you fancy something different the Ford Raptor comes highly rated on import only but a mega bit of kit.

Just about to swop out my 7yo 50k man Navara for an auto Amarok. Only problem I had with the Nav was losing a front wheel bearing on the lonely road between Fort William and Aviemore coming back from ERR 2011. I could hear the bearing fragments coming out but riding the brakes round the corners kept the wheel on until I was back in civilisation. First gear is a little high for pulling away on a slope. Nearly got an auto Nav but opted for the permanent 4WD Rok.
