GTO what a story! Increasing my urge to swap my scorpio for a Classic / Thar. Let's see.

Those alloys look killer. Where did you get them and what are the dimensions, would it fit a Scorp

I'd highly recommend the Thar to you. The Classic 4x4 isn't practical to live with. It's small, has poor top-end performance, is difficult to drive and finding one is getting tougher by the day. Instead of rebuilding an old Jeep with unknown history, better you buy the Thar. It's bigger, has a more compliant ride, can cruise at 120 kph all day, gets air-conditioning and comes with warranty backing too.

This used to be a very popular design in the late nineties and you'd see a ton of Jeeps, Gypsies & Pajeros wearing them. I got mine from Saifee Tyres. The Classic has a PCD of 139 (Scorpio = 160).

How is the car behaving now after the fuel filter change?

Did the issue repeat again?

Absolutely superb! Took her out today and she ran without skipping a heartbeat

Sometimes, it's the simplest things.

Cool. Nice to see she is performing as usual.

How much did the filter change cost?
