So, some 3 years after first posting on here about thinking about maybe buying an Amarok, Iíve actually gone and done it.

Our reflex silver V6 Sportline lands next week so we should have it by the end of the month. Just in time to hook up the new camper trailer and head off with the kids up the east coast and Vic High country for summer.

Tow bar, Andersen plug, tow pro, window tint, roll n lock, bed rug and (now free) 5 year warranty are the options for now. Might throw a bit more fruit at it next year before doing Fraser Island.

Given our plans involve doing mostly highway, sand and simple dirt for now, Iím thinking of trying a set of D679 LT 265/60s on the standard 18Ē rim. Would have preferred 17s and a set of LT245/70s but the marketing department reckoned I wanted 18s so thatís what I got.

If anyone wants a 1 year old Mk 7.5 Golf R Wolfsburg Wagon with 7000km and 4 years warranty, itíll be on carsales once I wash and photograph it.
