All good, Lambert! :cheer:

Did anyone see the Beige Jimny with the Perth Number Plate? It was near the end, I could't find it on the re-run. :(




Edit: See Thumbnail for a Perth Number Plate.

I think he is based in or near Perth so it could have been your dealership he filmed that later section at?

Found it!
Two Beige Jimnys, the first at 13:51 has a Standard WA Plate, 1GSK519,
the second, at 13:52, it has a "WA Euro Series" plate. (It's not mine)
I can't identify the Dealer, it's probably here in Perth given the WA Plates.

When I saw the title of this thread I thought there was going to be a link to a Gen 4 car for sale on the Pistonheads Classified ads, but the video is very interesting in any case.

I really enjoyed this video, and was pleasantly surprised by his reaction as he definitely isn't someone who is afraid of being critical. I've been a fan of his for years, but his only previous reference to Jimnys was this on his website, so it seems to have gone up in his estimations:

"The nimblest, lightest 4×4 of them all, the Jimmy tries hard to be a four-by-four but doesn’t really make it. It tries hard to be serious, but fails, and so every Jimmy needs a sticker on the back: ‘Stop calling me Jimmy. My name is James!’."

I'm looking forward to seeing more new Jimny content coming out of Australia, I'd especially like to see a Ronny Dahl "modified" episode on one. The new Jimny seems to have really caught the imagination over there, and I love their approach to modifications and off-road touring.
