Re: Chances Are It's UFO On Australian Roads!

Hiland the side steps are geniune, they came with the car along with the Grill, Nudge Bar, Chrome mirrors and Chrome door Sills. I didnt actually have a choice if i wanted them as the car was a demo but i believe the extra charge was about 3K all up for the lot.

Re: Chances Are It's UFO On Australian Roads!

I've seen about ten on the road in Sydney, But I'm out and about a fair bit. Mainlly Laredo's and Limited's. Only seen two Overlands and both were bright silver. As DH has said, I still haven't seen a Mineral Grey in person. They have all been either black, silver or the dark green.

Yes, lucky me scored a dent in the hood within the first week of owning it. It was either a rock out of the back of a truck on the highway or more likely someone has run into it at a car park. Its a hefty dent and scratch, looks like a bit of metal has pushed into it (possibly a ladder off the back of a ute??) If it was a rock on the highway if it had gone through the window it probably would have killed me! I was a very unhappy camper for a few days i can tell you!

$400 bucks quoted from the panel beater, just have to get it there and live without my car for a couple of days

Oh and the colour is dark charcoal.

Got the tow bar but not thrown in, cost $900 as extra. Managed to skip the LCT otherwise company wouldn't have gone for it. Surely its time to up the LCT 57K is not a luxury car these days!
