  1. Opinion on tail light

    4.1 Accessories
    Hi!, It is all a matter of taste, but they are quite expensive. I like them very much but not without upgrading the whole car. The lights should be part of a plan to upgrade the whole apearance, otherwise it is like a Dutch saying: een vlag op een modderschuit, meaning one very nice item on...
  2. Best way to put an on/off switch on my ABS?

    4.1 D.I.Y. and Modifications

    Hi, I'm Henri from the Netherlands. Bought a RAV4.1 1998 a year ago. The idea was to use it only in winter. In the summer I drive a MR Spyder speedshift. As roadtaxes in the Netherlands are very high I planned to swop the cars every half year, but I like the RAV so much I am driving it the year...
