Re: Cheapest 2014 Diesel You Can Get

Just as an aside if you think you are being hard done by on the diesel model try $55k for the export Laredo diesel over here!

Re: Cheapest 2014 Diesel You Can Get

Yeah it's about 10-15% per litre more expensive in Oz; you'd have to wonder why diesel is more expensive than petrol when it's less refined.

Re: Cheapest 2014 Diesel You Can Get

Just as a matter of interest, how is diesel priced in the US; is it more or less expensive than petrol?

Accessory auto timer shutdown PITA

Does anyone know how to disable the accessory function turning itself off automatically; short of getting an auto electrician to look at it?

Dumbest feature ever.

Re: 100,000km Bye bye warranty!

My Kumos were just replaced with Coooper AT3's. Kumos went 40 and still had tread but was tired of all the punctures! 5 in a year and a half.

If it's Leo Muller you've been to the oil they use is Castrol Edge 0-40 fully synthetic.

How long did your Kumo K1's last

Would be interested for those that have changed the OEM Kumo's out to see what sort of distance they had travelled before doing so.

How long do they last?

Re: Sensational fuel economy Brisbane to Sydney in V6
