Have you considered swapping in the auto and transfer box from an mq?

Or get the wife upgraded to a manual driver. :lol:

Independent rear ends seem to freqently waste tyres .

Just looked up the pricing for the new triton. $43 080 for an auto GLX+, a bit rough. It's not worth $8k more then the mq.

The price will come down to similar levels once they clear out the stock of MQ's that are left

With automotive sales down around 15% from this time last year, I think if you know how to bargain, there will be deals to be had. Just bide your time.
The voices in my head may not be real, but they do have some damned good ideas.

If it's feral, it's in peril.

MN turbo lag? What lag??

With the markup on the production cost from factory to Australia, they've got a huge scope to play with! :lol:

i think the so called more aerodynamically styled fronts are a bit of ruse anyway because the requirement to get air to flow through the radiator.

as for the looks i dont really mind it even if it has a sort of stromtrooper look about it. 6 speed auto big tick however wonder why they didnt drop the 8 speed from the challenger PS in it.

I was thinking of keeping the 3.2 engine for the auto MQ, and getting the wife to do the transfer since it is she that wants the auto, then I could disguise it by putting a pretend DPF on to make it all look factory...update on my mates AT3 worn out in 10k , he went back to the shop and they had already sacked the fitter and brought up the alignment they did on the computer and it was only half done...and they won't replace the tyres they want him to come back after 3 weeks after they have talked to the tyre rep...I would put the name up but the Mods would not like that..also have an oil question: I have a load of Castrol 5w 30 Edge and Penrite 5w 40 HPR, (about 60 litres all up) is there any additive for these oils to make them DPF compatible. I have been to the companies sites and the Castrol says the spec API CF, suits DPF but the drum says don't use in DPF...

Can we keep this thread on topic please fellas?

There are other threads for tyres and oils.

If work is so terrific, why do they have to pay us to do it?

How much more appealing would it look if it only shared the front of the Pajero Sport, :roll: the squared off wheel arch would of also matched the new tray :!:

Can anyone tell me if a 3 seat bench seat might be available?

Just put a deposit down on a new 19 GLS premium (what was the exceed)
Paid $55,200 with canopy, mats, tow pack and tyres swapped out to BF KO2.

I personally love the new look over the MQ

Pretty huge tech upgrades in this new model, drives much smoother with the new auto too the old auto used to bump into gears pretty hard occasionally.
This is my fourth after a Mk, Mn and a MQ exceed.

May not get it for a few weeks due to colours being hard to choose this early on and getting a canopy fitted.

Good to see it finally come with a 265/60/18 stock the 245 on the MQ was tiny,
Unsure if I’ll stick with the stock size on the KO2 or go up a size or two.

Will be interesting to see what size shoes will fit on the MR.
The shape of guards seems to possibly be a little more restrictive than the MQ.
I could be wrong though :oops:
