    Thought I would start a thread for the petrol 80, mainly for showing things that I do to it repairs upgrade you all know what I mean.
    Well I have driven it home just love the thing I can't think I got great mpg it just sounds to good not to put your foot down
    1st upgrade will be a set of BFG KO2 should be fitted tomorrow
    Then on Friday a decent head unit will be going in like this one, I already have this unit in my Troopy and love it 1AEBC993-9747-41C3-86DC-F9E864AF29FB.jpeg

    The Petrol 80 is definitely the best!! Apart from the smell and mist of fumes from the exhaust on a cold morning, and the engine has upped its revs!!!

    And 285/75R16 KO2 fitted seems to drive better than the Kumho ones

    Looking forward to see how you get on. I picked mine up in November last year and love it. As you said above, I just want to drive it everywhere all the time :)
    Interested to which size you go for on the tyres as mine came with K02s but they're a thinner size than the ones on my 100.

    So the unit doesn't have its own GPS, it uses one from a device?
