    Raptor Coating Joins Official Isuzu D-Max Accessory List

    RAPTOR COATING has been gaining quite a name for itself in recent times, and so has the Isuzu D-Max. And now they can carry on gaining names for themselves together, because Isuzu has added U-Pol’s ultra-tough bedliner paint as an accessory for its big-selling pick-up. When applied, Raptor forms a scratch-resistant, waterproof barrier between the truck’s bed and the world outside.

    Getting A Bag On...

    Anyone who has children or dogs (or, worse still, both) will be familiar with the sweat-inducing panic that accompanies loading the car for a holiday or weekend away. Even the largest boot can be guaranteed not to have enough space for everything you need.

    Stick (But Not In The Mud)

    If this isn't the coolest thing you’ve ever seen in your entire life, you’re big mates with Johnny Depp or the Fonz. As if a 4GB USB memory stick hidden in a die-cast model of a Defender 90 wasn’t wonderful enough, the headlights flash when the stick is sending or...

    Flatdog Launches Battery Booster Kit

    The first rule of flat batteries is that they only ever happen when it’s least convenient. And if you didn’t think it was an inconvenient time, it’ll become one the moment you turn your truck’s ignition key and it coughs lamely at you in return.

    Good grief, what’s going on here? The Series 3 and 90-110 Owners’ Club isn’t the first 4x4 club to have the idea of doing its own version of the Calendar Girls thing. But with the legend that is Frank King behind the project, we don’t mind betting that this one’s...
