Welcome Boet!

I have a 4.8Turbo & a TD42T I love them both & I rack up lots of kilos on both of them as daily drives.

You will get used to them fast & smaller cars will just feel very wrong.

Welcome

Here's another fool using a TD42 as a daily.

My (pre-lockdown) commute is 90km/day of which about 40% is on the freeway. Cost is around R4k/month (fuel, maintenance and tires). I do not include appreciation, insurance or licensing in that as those are sort-of fixed costs that are the same irrespective of how much I use it. However, the maintenance is just the basics, not the longer-term stuff.
