Hi Jade

About to do my own introduction - but it seems you went from shopping for a Trol to actually owning one now! :woo:

Satisfying experience? :imnewhere:

Dankie Tinus - baie gaaf!

I have to admit, I know Ross from the forum, and it is my brother looking at a Troll (the 4.8 that was at Mazda Bruma a month or two ago) that planted a seed.

Not working in a high paying industry - the fuel consumption of the petrol Troll's will probably mean I cannot afford going away (and a Trol not being used is just sacrilege).

Whereas the "hand-grenade" on the 3.0 TD is of course a concern - but most probably where my mind is at.

The 4.2 diesel ... scarce and maybe a bit overpriced when available?
Oh, so many decisions.

Great to hear Jade - it does look beautiful (from what I can see from your forum pic).

And yes, will definitely be keen to meet some more members and hear thoughts - knowing Ross is of course a massive boon in itself.
