Red Big Window
I don't like the colour red for a Syncro but if anyone else does this advert looks interesting.

OR

Perhaps the ad is no longer valid but I thought it was worth posting.

RE: Red Big Window
Had to go and check if mine is still in the garage! Looks identical. I don't like the red either but I have to live with it....

It's not just a 4x4, it's a Syncro........

Bad planning on your part does not make your issue an crisis to me
Bad workmanship by other garages does not entiltle you to better rates at me
Syncro, syncro , syncro and more syncro, this is the syncro way of life

Well it's in Pretoria and it's a big window and you know how to pimp it up so maybe a good buy?

Ouch!!
Fixable?

My girlfriend loves my new car so much she tells me she wants to trade in her Corsa lite for a Syncro and she likes Red!

Pity my decoupler and extra fuel tank and new grill and headlights and door handles and Mags and dashboard and smoked indicators and emblems and Botswana trip and selector bushings and 16" Wheel arch covers are depleting the coffer rather quickly.

But at least I'm not paying R 18 000 per month for a T5 4 motion.

RE: Red Big Window
Bruce, where are you buying the 16" wheel arches from?

16" Wheel arch "covers"
As far as I can tell these are for the 16 wheel arches.
Russel says normal arches have to be cut to fit them on but does increase wheel arch size to accommodate 16" tyres just incase you are feeling super greedy about already amazing ground clearanceBig Grin.

My German is no good so I can't understand the site properly.
Google translation is not perfect.

Apparently the front ones fit half on the door and half on the arch so that when you are in a muddy situation and get out the car you don't get your pants dirty.

I may be completely wrong about this they could just be for 14 or 15 " but I don't think so.
But check out the links.
And maybe you can tell me.

Also these guys but I think only for normal rims.

RE: Red Big Window
The terrawagon ones fit standard arches with no cutting so keep the arches at the same size. The other ones you list there are the 16 arches.
