Congrats Steer! That was definitely a quick buy and also a sensible buy. Please post pictures of the engine bay and what happened to the fuel cap on the left hand side?

First thoughts on seeing the title was that the Landmaster Mark 2 project has been declared to be complete.

Steer, this reminds me of the guy who bought a car on this forum, even without seeing it. There is a thread somewhere on this.

Congrats, and wishing you good luck.

GTO already said it. One difficult vehicle is fine,2 is tolerable, but FIVE?

atleast the fiat boys will not say that you're biased and fiat bashing blindly

The original caps are very hard to find, and are stolen very easily. Usually people close the hole and fit the filler cap directly in the boot. It was done to Steer's Landmaster as well, later reversed.

WOW, That was fast steer seeing this thread only now.Was trying to figure out who's got a fiat for the C R U I S E. Good Decision and at a very cheap price if you ask me, after seeing Landy under construction for so long, this seems like a good change for steer and all the other Bhpians who's been following that thread so closely.

Bravo , Bravo.

Update - The car will not be making it to the C R U I S E. The seller is adamant on completing the registration before he releases the car ( an I would agree with him) and the buyer is not around to sign papers. We already know what happens when you rush these things. Hence we will take our time, get clean deal done and then drive the little lady to Cochin/Shornur

Actually, the car in question is Samurai's Baleno. I dont remember a Siena being grabbed like that.

That is what GTO thinks, but for me the Safari was trouble-free till about 6 months ago, the RD never needed maintenance and the Jag has (Touch Wood!) not needed any more work after replacing wheelbearings, rotors and pads - not bad for a vehicle that has done over 40k kms after I picked it up in January this year, 70k in total. The Land of course has never been a complete car to be judged.
