Re: Front end clunk

For those that are interested the clunk was due to a bolt on the front RHS strut that was tight but wasn't seated properly. They undid it - reseated it - re tightened it and presto clunk was gone!

Re: Front end clunk

Thanks guys. They have replaced one of the sway bars and checked the skid plates.... Seems like the mystery will continue. It's booked in for a full check up next week.

Re: 5 Speed vs 8 Speed ?

Interesting observations. Two reasons I bought the CRD, 1. Drag people off at lights and drive on sand, looks like I'll keep the MY 12 a bit longer....

On a side note you'd be one of the first to...

Re: E-tag placement

No problems with it here. It is above the mirror and you can see the "camera" hole un obstructed. This is a Laredo. Not sure if any more bling on overland would be affected.

Re DPF. Our GC spends 90% of its time doing short 5-10 minute trips sometimes doing up to 2,000kms like this before a decent trip. No troubles with the DPF.
