Default My NS Diesel

Hi guys I am Smoke from Cairns,

I have emigrated to Oz last year from the Netherlands and I always dreamt of buying a full size 4WD, however due to the nice Dutch tax regime this was always a illusion for me, for comparison: a pajero 3.2 diesel would cost me 4000 dollars annually in Rego there.. So trust me, Australia isn't that bad.

So when I came to Oz I decided it was time to find one that suits our needs, we use it more as a daily driver and offroad cruiser and we don't do any real hard core offroading. I test driven a older model Pajero [NM gen 3], a 2004 Prado and this 2008 NS Pajero. Was right on budget and I was impressed in terms of handling compared to the Prado, which was overpriced too imo. So we bought it cruised over 20.000km in it last year without any problems. It's a 3.2 diesel auto and it did just over 200.000. Had it pre purchase inspected and the mechanic was impressed by the condition and maintenance of the car.

Upgrades:

Dual Batteries
10.1 Inch Android 8.1 screen
Alloy Factory bullbar
rear view camera
Tinted Windows
Whole new tailgate and spare wheel holder installed due to rear ender, only scratches and dents but needed to be replaced.
Set of Maxxtraxx which I want to carry on the roofrack later on.

Wishlist

Spotties and ledbar
Snorkel
roofrack and rooftoptent
lift kit
new tires
DPF delete pipe and 3" stainless exhaust system
bashplates and rocksliders
Engine Chip
New Coms

I am going to do everything overtime. save up and buy some upgrades sometimes. Next year in July we want to do Cape York.
