Hello, I am Mihai and live in Brussels, tough I am Romanian of origin. Toyota Landcruiser Prado 2009 AT - bought yesterday, I think is what you call in UK LC5 , with the air suspension, sunroof, reverse camera and all the bells. No mods yet, but first on the list are are some Yokohama Geolandar AT g015 tyres and a bash plate. Had the same tyres on the previous car I had and I was very happy with them. I used to own a Subaru Forester, used for holidays and trips,( daily driver I have a Toyota C-HR hybrid ) but to fit all the camping and recovery gear I had a roof box on it. Since I was losing a lot of time to set and move camp, I wanted an RTT. But I can't fit an RTT and roofbox on a forester hence the need of a bigger car. On top of this I was maybe even over the weight limit on the Forester with all the gear and the camping things, and I don't like to push the cars so hard, something will give out for sure at some point. I am relatively new to overlanding, the first big trip I had was this year, a tour of the Pirinei Mountains, 800 km off-road 1200 km in total, over a 9 days period. Done the trip with my wife and 11 year old kid. The car seems mostly ok, some scratches on the bumpers, some wear on the drivers seat but with good service history ( all wheel bearings replaced last year, service on the gearbox and transfer case done recently, etc.) . and a lot of km, around 280k, that is why I managed to get it on the cheap... . Time will tell, but the parts seem very cheap to me and I like to work on cars as a hobby, and around Brussels you can rent a fully loaded garage with tools for around 50 Euro/half a day.. The AC compressor is faulty,but it will be replaced by the dealer on his expense in the next few days. Probably seized while sitting on the lot for god knows how long. I am not sure why all are running away from the air suspension, I found the toyota site that an new OEM airbag is 200 euro, I saw coils more expensive than this.. . The only thing I am worried about are that some AC controls are on the bloody touchscreen, I hope It won't crap out on me. My plan is to make a practical car for overlanding trips, mostly in Europe for the first couple of years, and after I get some experience perhaps Africa or the Stans.. Some pics from my last trip.
