    Default Vigo Thailand or UK? Brand new or 2nd hand?

    AOA! I need advice on vigo champ fully loaded model 2010-2013, should I buy UK import or Thailand import? Please highlight the differences between both of them... My budget is 50-65 lacs. Where can I buy a brand new one in Pakistan or atleast driven only 5000 kms. Should I buy a second hand vigo or a brand new one?

    Buy the Thailand Vigo its much much better then the UK version as the Thai version has the Vn Turbo new engine which is good for our country as it can stand our diesel. The UK version is cheaper then the Thailand Vigo. I have owned both the Thailand Vigo 2007 to 2010 model over the years and UK version Hilux invincible 2009 and 2010 also the Mitsubishi L200 Animal 2009 still have it worst is the indus hilux but its under powered 2500cc and doesn't have VSA, Vn Turbo and other options.
    BUG ME AND I WILL CRASH INTO U!

    The UK model Vigo has a different radiator from the Thailand Model Vigo and doesn't perform as well as it should in the summer as the weather in the UK isnt exactly hot and the radiator isn't made for Pakistans **** summers. The AC is pretty weak in the summers.

    I'd suggest the Thailand model Vigo. I have it and it's great! Except for the fact that it doesn't have a heater or window defoggers.

    If you get diesel from the right place, no they aren't.

    I myself along with some others are very satisfied users of Common rail engines.

    If you don't mind the fact that it doesn't have a heater and all Thailand Vigo drivers freeze their a**es off in the winter, then yes. Thailand is better.

    You can fit one but its a hassle.

    It doesn't have a heater because Thailand has a warm climate and they don't need heaters or window defoggers.
