Hi Andy, welcome to the forum, it`s a great place to be if you  have a Vitara ,  you will find a lot of help on how to spend money on the car !!

I have the SZ-5 diesel and am very pleased with it, especially the miles per gallon/litre, I seem to remember an Australian road test where they said there was no diesel model, looks like they have put that right, hope you have a lot of fun with the car, thanks for the photos.

Welcome to the Forum Andy cheers

Great looking Vitara, I see the tyres are Bridgestone but what size are the wheels and tyres?

Look forward to more pictures from Australia with your Vitara

Did the 18" wheels come as standard or did you fit them yourself?

As many of the Australian accessories are not available in the UK you could make yourself a few AUS$$$ shipping parts to the UK?

Could you post some close up pictures of the Front Bar and how it is mounted please?

Is there much non genuine accessories available yet, such as ARB, Old Man Emu, TJM etc

Gar i think RT-X is AllGrip with RT-S 2WD

The bull bar is available in Chrome and Black with front sensors being re located as well...

The Towbar is looking heavy duty in comparison to the European oneand the Dog guard very industrial/UTE looking....

Hi Andy,
Welcome to the forum, lovely Vitara, Australia always seems to get the good accessory packages as your importer seems to have common sense lol
If your shipping to the UK any items, I also would like some items but only if you want to and are willing to go to the trouble.
Thanks and welcome
Eeeee.
