    Was it just a tune?

    That's pretty stout, if so.

    My son thought youíd bought the Sierra back and was taking the Lambo when he came home from school to see it sitting on a trailer in the driveway!

    A worthy entry in the sea hunt thread!

    Yep twins. Other sheets could be from the V6? I dunno.

    Did another 1385klms last weekend going down to Jindy and back. Tune was worth it for sure. Holds 6th at 120kph all day and gets better fuel economy.

    I think the Cayenne is a better tow car as it sits on 120kph with a car and car trailer on the without even thinking about it and gets the same economy (Mid teens per 100) towing or no towing. Itís also a nicer place to sit for hours and hours.
    The Amarok is still a cracking mile eater on the cheap though. Constant 8ltrs per 100 just ticking along. Leather seats are nice and the seat warmers are great first thing in the AM. Bluetooth system is a little hit and miss linking to an iPhone but it works well 95% of the time.
    Annoying things.
    The cruise control is a little shit. Not very sensitive to small increases/decreases and seems to just struggle to hold an exact speed.

    High beam headlights are fucking shit and not much brighter than low beam.

    Cruise in mine is pretty good, maybe cause auto?

    I found the headlights in general to be utter pox so I chucked a set of HID's in the low beams and factory fogs. If you're not going to put a front bar or winch on lots of kennys put slimline light bars in the lower grille opening to supplement the high beams.

    Rear reverse light is pox as well, just one in the left tail light for some dumb german reason which does precisely fuck all. I've put a 6 inch light bar on the roll bar above the factory tray light and when I pull my finger out I've also got a pair of upgraded LED bulbs to go into the factory positions in the tail lights.

    FYI most of the interior is built on Golf 5/6 architecture so you can bolt on all the cool VAG stuff like GTI seats, steering wheel etc. You can also go full retard and bolt on an Audi R8 wheel with flappy paddles and push button start for not much more than a genuine Golf 7 GTI wheel...

    Bought one of these on the weekend but the Pov Pack edition. I think the vague shifter feel and shitty high beams will need some addressing. Where is the 'go to' online parts place for these things?

    Jump on the Modrok FB page mate, best places for answers, suppliers and general stuff. Not sure if it's still the case but the AusAmarok forum was full of hyperaids malware last time I checked.

    Cheers for the tip, on modrok now and it has heaps of helpful stuff. Ausamarok does seem to be infected with something nasty as any link you click brings up aids. Still havent managed to find any decent online genuine parts hookups though.
