    My binos are made in China and they are damned good and well made (Vanguard).

    10 or so years ago people scoffed at Hyundai, and now look at them. The same will happen with Chinese products.

    Hate when the wife has been using vehicles, go to jump in but the seat is right up against the steering wheel, get that sorted and turn key on and some obscene pop music starts blasting out the stereo at full noise, all rear vision mirrors pointed directly back at the drivers face....

    I can believe that but I'm not putting weight in it for a 9hr drive up the country. Took a trition over the same bit of road and it behaved nicely. Yet to try any of the others

    Luckily we have the same seat position, like the same music (mostly) and it is just a flick of the lever under the mirror to toggle between positions.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    My last hilux (2008) had it's clutch done at 50,000km Put a heavy duty one in, then the motor blew up (not related of course)...

    We have a contractor who has a couple of Fotons for 'boys' trucks. Both have gone well with no issues. Don't get that well looked after. They'd buy another.
