Test drive 4.8

Post by ferdidiver » 03 Mar 2015 01:05

Hi Guys

I am a new member and very impressed with the forum . All the help and the tips is fantastic

I currently drive a nissan pathfinder 2.5 , pimped up to do offroad but on every 4x4 route I get a draw back as I don't have a diff lock . :redface:

So , I am looking out for a 4.8 Patrol :blonde: but would very much like to go and test drive one before I make my final decision .

Being stationed in Malmesbury (Cape town area) I can't seem to find alot of patrol available even new ! :thumbdown:

Can any one advise me on where can find a patrol to test drive , car hire or what not ? :helpsign: :helpsign: :helpsign:

Who owns 4.8 on Cape Town on this Forum?

Maybe we can ask G-Man?

Hallo Ferdi, I am in Ceres over weekends and on Bellville during the week. My 4.8 manual is currently in Ceres but will be in Bellville next week.
You are most welcome to take it for a test drive.

Hi Ferdidiver
Kontak J.B's Motors daar by jou in Malmesbury. Vra vir Kosie die werkswinkel bestuurder ook, hulle sal weet.
