Not sure what I think about the looks🤔
Like the versatility though.
Guess the price will mean it won't be my worry, if it ever does come over here 1 day.

Lots of space in the cab to fill with empty crisp packets, old receipts, baler cord, spanners, stale dog biscuits, dog hair, spent cartridges, empty 22 rounds that find small crevices etc
