  1. Maybe take a look at the Fortuner as well. Not saying you have to buy it but if you research the main SUV models, I would certainly look at it too. I have the previous Fortuner model (2014) and I'm quite happy with it. With to the PJS and Everest, I would add the following additional points to consider: - PJS: Design good except from the back. But either you love it or you don't. Personally I find long lights ugly. Has most safety features compared to the Everest and Fortuner. Price/value very good. Considerably cheaper than the Fortuner or Everest. - Everest: weight. A lot heavier than the PJS and Fortuner. And as a result uses a lot more diesel than the others.

  2. I've not heard about a complete overhaul of the Pajero and a complete new generation to be launched next year. I doubt it since this model has just recently launched and is selling well, a lot better than the Ford Everest. Sent from my SM-J710F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  3. Ford’s Ranger pickup hits record sales

    They had the top spot before the Revo as well. Sent from my SM-J710F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  4. New rules for cars over 7 years

    Based on my experience not much has changed. Recently did the anual renewal on my father-in-law's pick up and it seems to be the same process as previous years Sent from my SM-J710F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  5. Fortuner, which model to pick?

    Thanks for this. Don't understand why they develop things like this. Surely most customers don't want it. Sent from my SM-J710F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  6. Agree. It's more about choices you make. And if there would be a cheaper option which would give me nearly the same visa benefits, I would go for it. But if you are below 50, those options are very limited to say the least. Frankly the SETV/METV visa is not an option, the Education route neither, marriage visa is no option. So you can look into work permits, investment visa or TE. TE is by far easiest and safest option in my opinion. Sent from my SM-J710F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  7. Fortuner, which model to pick?

    I hope you can override somehow the engine idling stop system. I mean surely unless you have a hybrid engine, this is complete rubbish in Thailand. Sent from my SM-J710F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  8. I'm below 50 so the retirement visa option is not available to me. Hence I went for the 5 year TE option simply because it will get me closer to when I'm eligible and it's a timeline I somehow have a view on where I am and what I am doing. Once my TE visa expires I will revisit options available. Right now I would probably go for the 20 yr TE option or look at the new 10 year visa the government is introducing. Hope this helps you understand my rationale. Sent from my SM-J710F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  9. I couldn't agree more with khunpa's comments before. It's definitely a worthwhile investment. Aside from the 'peace of mind' about staying in Thailand, you get a great 'VIP' service every time you travel in/out of Thailand. I got it mainly because I'm not eligible yet for the retirement visa but even once I am, I think I will just renew the Thailand Elite membership.

  10. Dengue vaccination

    That statistic doesn't capture all the cases that get misdiagnosed as flu/cold or all those that don't go to hospital. I think the risk is quite high that you get it at some point when you live here longer. Just hope you don't get the severe dengue version. Personally I will get the vaccine.

  11. Dengue vaccination

    Based on news and statistics I have seen from Singapore, you are equally at risk when older. Sent from my SM-J710F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  12. Fortuner, which model to pick?

    Thanks for sharing. Do you know what changes they will make to the new model? Sent from my SM-J710F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  13. Maybe wait for Toyota to launch the CH-R instead of the Honda HR-V. If you like small SUVs. Sent from my SM-J710F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  14. Pigs 101 (A Start)

    @ revar thanks for those details. The pig food pricing looks good. I think I can transport food from around Bangkok to Kalasin for about 18-20 baht per pack. So still looks reasonable. The issue for me would be that I can sell back the pig at a decent price. Just out of interest, does Perfeqc kill pigs/sell meat themselves? Just asking because I've never heard them doing this.
  15. Pigs 101 (A Start)

    @revar many thanks for those details. really appreciate it. I have some follow up questions: Regarding your schedule, I'm not 100% clear. So when you say 911 x 0.1 means 0.1 x one pack of 911? 912 x 0.5 means half a pack of 912 per pig? 913 x 30 means what? 3 pack of 913? 914 x 20 means 2 pack? 916 x 10 means 1 pack? About buying back pigs, I read in an earlier comment from you that you sell back to Perfecq directly for 50+ pigs at CP price or better. So if I have a batch of 70+ pigs and feed them Perfecq food, you cannot sell them back to Perfeqc? Many thanks.
