Thanks, yes it's a pain in the bum that we can't get the full accessory selection as standard. I ordered them in from Japan, but the site I used (Japanparts.com) has removed them for some reason (plus it worked out to be silly money with shipping and customs).

Thanks. Sounds loads better than before. I thought the dual speaker setup sounded ok, but with my son in the back I had to turn the volume right up so that he could listen as well. The SZ5 headunit allows you to fade front/rear, I'd imagine the SZ4 does too, but not tried it.

Probably needs removing on the left-hand side for parking sensors, camera and towbar electrics, as all of mine seem to be there!

Are the towbar electrics just plug in, or did they have to modify the harness?

If it is plug-in, I'll fit mine myself, if they have to ness with wires Suzuki will have to do it as I'm not having them refuse to sort out all those electronics that can go wrong because they can blame the failure on my fitting the electrics wrong.

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)

Do you know if 215 tyres will fit on the steel wheels of an SZ4? I'd like to change mine but not sure if I need new rims too.

Yeah should do. I'm doing it within next week or so. I think 215 is about the limit for a 5.5" wheel, but it's ok.

I'm not sure, I had the dealer fit mine and it looks like a mass of wiring behind the trim panel.

Should be fine, steel wheels are the same width as the alloys.

Took the Jimny to a pay & play site today for a short blast, my first offroad experience. Amazing how capable the Jimny is! Was great to meet @Daniel30 while I was there too :)

I had to borrow my dad's pressure washer, although I think he regretted letting me clean it on his drive, left half of the Kent countryside behind :laugh:
