The latest variant of the factory standard 716/718 nose.

Hmmm....Interesting to see that options 1 & 2 are pretty much level pegging to date, and that 3 is in the minority.

One of my perceived benefits of the Pinz design is the view down out the windshield; options 1 through 3 get progressively worse, with the "new" design just terrible at being able to see what you are comming across.

Well I've gone with 2 cause being tall it looks like there's a bit more head room + the side windows are taller. Shame they hadn't raised the rear canvas to match!

I went with option 4. The P80s were by far the nicest looking TDs...
but , then again, I may be a bit prejudice. :roll:

btw, it's just like Peter to leave the best out... put a write-in vote for #4. :wink:

Well , you might, but I won't go without kicking and screaming!

Is living in a new century, a good reason for being butt ugly? ..... the new Pinz that is... :wink: ... I have no excuse for myself

Add two extra wheels Dave, and it would be P-E-R-F-E-C-T! :twisted: :roll: :wink:

I love "option 1" but being 6'5" tall "option 2" will give me a greater comfort.

Best Regards,

Jacques

It looks like all who are going to vote have voted, and the current model "nose design" is the winner. :wink:
(Option 2 was a little behind in the preferred shape, but still more than "acceptable")

Nice to see that sanity (and good design taste) prevails! :twisted: :roll:

for those who just did not get enough of the new design, check out this webpage, a 21 picture walk around of the truck.

I was interested in the 16x7.5J Split Rim Wheels that were fitted with tubeless tyres. The Patent is still pending on these but a warning is stamped suggesting deflation before disassembly!

I should imagine that puncture repair or tyre (tire) replacement could be very quick and require only a spanner! 8) :lol: can any one through some light on these?

The other thing of note are the lights front and rear but particularly the front. Are these Bi Projector xenon types?

Hmmm....Could be.
The thing I noticed re the lights is that the "original light pod" (like on our 710's/712's) is still visible from the inside of the cabin :wink:
