 The Navara and the Isuzu are the best two to consider if going pick up route

You might be on to something there.  I didn't realise the BIK rates for LCVs are so low.  Hmmm, Merc X class, anyone?  ::)

Id buy the Navara (exactly the same car) for several grand less personally. But the ideas sound.

Have they figured out how to stop them splitting in two yet? :-\

I found out about that little gem about a week after using an '07 plate model to tow a glider to Aberdeen. :o


EDIT: Lovely tow car, BTW, with the rear attached, at any rate. :y

Well, I have spoken to all the dealers (VOlvo, Mitsubishi and NIssan) and the financials are compelling.  For a Ltd company with personal usage an LCV is best.  The Navara comes with a 5 year/100k mile warranty, drives as close to a car as a truck can get atm and if the company purchases it then the tax advantages are significant, not to mention the significant discount from the dealer.

Looks like I'm gunna be a pick-up driver  ???

Got a VW, Audi, Skoda or Seat? I have full Diagnostic software VCDS to read and program your car. Need something enabling? Perhaps full diagnostic? Drop me a PM. Can diagnose in Camberley or Osterley Area.

Having just come back from the States, an F350 is a pickup, not the childrens toys being mentioned here ;D

Yeah, but other people need the other half of the road, so you can't have it all to yourself.

When the cull is implemented there will be far more room on the road. :y
