Back in the market

Post by WannabeTroll » 26 Apr 2019 15:06

Hi almal

I'm looking for a Patrol again. Work and life are making way for toys again. Wanting one as my daily driver, about 1200kms per month, and then weekends and holidays.

I prefer petrol and don't mind the odd dents and scratches. GQ or Gu ... I'm torn between the "don't mind about the bodywork" of the GQ and then "driver comfort" of the GU. Not interested in bling. Auto or Manual, but I lead toward manual.

I'm keeping an eye on the different sites but most currently on offer are through dealers and their prices are a bit offsides. I know there a few honest owners here keen to pass on their much loved trolls. Let me know what's available.

Is this what is feels like to post a profile on a dating website? lol

Thanks in advance.

On a dating site I'm sure you would need a (mis)representative profile picture...

Hope you find your Patrol :thumbup:

Thanks Eddie, But I'd be too worried about scratching it. My budget is below 100k unfortunately. Unless I'm completely misreading your offer and the price is within my range ?????????? lol

Must admit, I love me a 4.8
