Some good points, cheers. Iíd rather a couple of repaired doors than mechanical issues I reckon. They may not look perfect but that wonít bother me. I think Iím still feeling ok about it.

Plenty have bought ex cop vehicles and are happy with the purchase. They normally get serviced on time and looked after mechanically. I knew a few cops back in the NT as well as Telstra 4wd and wouldnt hesitate to buy one. They had to go remote and as such had to be reliable.

Thanks everyone for all your assistance. Picked it up yesterday afternoon. Iím confident it was a good purchase. Annoying dash rattle far left of dash at certain speeds but will sort that out and could potentially get it fixed under warranty.

Rear cargo light isnít working and itís not the bulb. Also the rear park light wasnít working when it was in my driveway but when I got to a relativeís place it was suddenly fine. Maybe a loose connection. Will need to suss those out. Everything else electric wise works perfectly.

Found these, recovery points on genuine towbar? One at each end. Do all NX genuine towbars have these? Are they rated recovery points?

I wouldn't use them for snatching if I could use the hitch receiver.
If I had to use them for snatching, I'd want to use a bridle to spread the load over both.

Definitely not rated and definitely do not snatch from them, even with a bridle. There's a local one around here with shackles attached to those tie down loops. I cringe every time I see it.
