I sold my old M reg one to a guy from Ireland. He came all the way over with a trailer to pick it up! Said he was going to use it solely for off roading. I still have his details somewhere (my filing system consists of paper everywhere!) If I find it, I might message him and see if he ever joined the forum. That will give you another one for the convoy :D

Yes Jonny you are spot on with that comment, there are 3 within a few miles of where i live alone, i see loads on the road, but not many here on fog. We should get fog flyers and put them on the windows of all the fronteras we find in a bid to get a big group in NI.

Bout Ye Chrispynuts, Glad theres another local here at least, is Rod2.4 still using the site. The other guy from Ballynahinch, Im only 9 miles away in Lisburn myself.
Today i have seen at least 5 other Fronteras in Lisburn so there must be a lot of people out there that pay Charles Hurst to do their work or they have perfect Frontys with no faults LOL.
Do you off-road or know any good spots to go to that you could get the truck muddy?

Hi millenaire haven't met Rod2.4. I used to go off roading in years past as a lot of my work was in or around stone quarries over Ireland, so I have got a high mileage well used Frontera but due to turn down in economy all I use it for now is commuting I might have been one of the Fronties you saw in Lisburn. Talk about servicing I've done it all my self I needed reliable transport that I could fix and knew all about never fancied letting somebody else loose on me pride and joy. Anyway couldn't have afforded to pay for the repairs.

Yes I do the majority of the work on my Frontera, only things I've had to pay for was getting the main belt pulley replaced when it broke off when out on the road. I hate paying other people if I can do it myself. I was a service manager for a motorcycle garage for years, so have decent mechanical knowledge, but diesels still puzzle me sometimes lol.
The Frontera is my daily commuter too, just fancied a bit of gentle off roading to get started on for the craic.

hi millenaire I don't know anywhere you can take your own motor off road safely ! there is a place @ clandeyboye forest park another called todds leap (not sure where it is ) and one more place near the end of the M1 towards Dungannon.
I think you can use their motors at the off road sites but suppose the might allow you to use your own IF you sign a disclaimer
