New Member and recent Patrol Owner

Post by Forest »

Good Day

I joined the forum a few weeks ago, looking for information and anything to help my search for a Patrol. I spent much time reading through many posts from technical information to general impressions on the Y61 Patrol. Equipped with this new found knowledge i went out looking for a patrol to replace my 1999 Land Rover Defender 2.8i. a vehicle i have had endless fun with and done many technical trails. It just got to small for all the camping gear and was time to find something with more space and comfort.

I found a 2010 Y61 4.8 GRX, with low mileage and a few added extras for a good price and drover her home this past weekend. I am extremely happy with my purchase and all i can say is wow, what an awesome vehicle... on the drive home of approximately 350km i was wondering to myself why i hadn't bought on sooner...

Thanks to everyone who contributes to the wealth of knowledge found on this forum. I'm sure ill be doing alot more searches and asking even more questions

Cheers
