      Odessey with wheels is hot. I don't know why people don't like them! Good taste Aaron.

      Well in 1999 the first gen to me was like a mini space shuttle

      But then again, I like the renault kangoo lwb, dual sliding doors family wagon, pretty sure its got a 1.9td and a 1 tonne payload. I even think the skoda roomster is so wrong that its right.

      The main point hidden somewhere here is a multivan has a 1.13 tonne payload capacity and therefore does not qualify for the same hassles for part-private use as a 'car' if you are purchasing it through a company.

      And a bit of family car whorage!

      I'm not a big fan of the Landys, but if it was a choice between the CX9 and the 110, I'd go the 110 anyday.

      That's a very nice wagon, but $105,000!!! I am most certainly in the wrong industry.

      Ok... now that Dr Sloth decreed this thread isn't about Wayne, (and Jim's post was totally sig worthy - sorry wayne), anyway, to get back on topic, ie: "wayne", I propose a new thread with a poll:

      "Should Wayne never have sex again?"

      I reckon a maxed out 4dr Hilux is a good combo for doin' shiiite, plenty of room and surviving Sydney peak hour.

      Have fun in the Defender.

      Yeah, but how many kids did you have while you were trying to decide?
