Other info:


Bought my first Hilux in 1982 & have just taken delivery of my tenth Hilux & my fourth D4D all have been dual cabs & all diesel,1 yellow,1 sterling silver,8-Red. Latest is Metallic Red-a real head turner & all manual gearboxes.
Waited 2 months (got very lucky) was built on 5th march in Thailand factory for it-Well worth the wait.I am now retired, but can't get Hiluxes out of my blood.From a farming background originally, Qualified as a motor mechanic & did a stint with a motor dealer for a few years before I got sick of the grease & dirt,but spent most of the last 30 years working in the telecommunication industry.
Very happy with new 2.8 D4D
& definitely the best yet. Notice big difference from the 3.0 Litre D4D I traded.
