Re: 2016 Map Update

Yes, it'll cost for sure. A reasonable guesstimate would be in the range of AU$200-400.

They must be upgrading something structural, as the tie down points are weak as piss and so is the mechanism they resolve through. The fibreboard cargo floor is not worth bolting anything to either....

Re: WK2 Snorkel

Wade did you replace the zinc passified self-drilling ones going into the bodywork too? I'd put a bit of polyurethane in the hole and around the screw before pulling them down.

Re: Towing
