    hopefully may lumabas na upgrades yung bt50, especially for the headlights. kahit alisin lang nila yung amber and make it clear white.
    Mazda went with their design concept hence the flowing motion in their design. It kind of took the butch-ness away. But it also sort of took some of the size away from such a massive piece of metal. I don't think the amber kilay is going away though:

    I think sir Garyq, or any other headlight specialists can do something about that headlight. Maybe he can customize an OEM look without the amber on the sides. Yun nga lang baka after warranty pa.

    For me, kahit anong gawin sa BT-50, panget pa rin. It's like Sarah Geronimo - even after a decade in showbiz and all cosmetic upgrades that come with it, she still isn't anywhere near a perfectly stock Angel Locsin.

    If you made me choose between my Ranger XLT and a BT-50 3.2, I'd still get the Ranger. You can upgrade the Ranger's engine and add the toys, but you can't change the BT-50s sheetmetal.

    My thoughts on the Ranger 3.2's performance - very powerful, but not athletic. At least it doesn't have the annoying lag of the 2.2, but still not up to par with Korean diesels. Even with the 2.2 though, I've had no problem overtaking along provincial highways or the occasional burst of speed on SLEX.

    Bottomline, Ranger all the way

    For my choice I would go for the Mazda although compare it with the Ranger's looks, but value for money it would go to the ranger.

    Colorado has a very powerful engine but if your not really going to use it for hauling then maybe you settle for the smaller displacement of both the Ranger/BT50.

    Engine wise, I wonder if the brand new Dmax can fare better than the Colorado?

    CSB-PRO AUTOLIGHT TRADING: MAZDA BT-50 BI-XENON PROJECTOR + DRL

    Kayanin kaya ito ng retrofitters dito for the bt50 headlight? Kung ganito, with the amber eyelashes gone and replaced with smoked glass and led drl, aba e bt50 na ako. Couple it with hi-low 55 watt hid projectors ayos na ayos!

    Kayang kaya ni Garyq yan.

    Ang ayoko lang sa Colorado ay parang minadali siya just to compete with the Ranger. Pero in everything else, nagagandahan ako sa Trailblazer.

    Not with the current engines, if we're talking about power. Kung economy ang pag-uusapan... the 4JJ1 is still sweet. Had one last month for a week. 10 km/l in traffic. 18 on the highway at 100 km/h. Only truck I've driven over the past few years that can match or beat that is the Ranger 2.2.

    Of course, the Ranger 2.2 can kick the 4JJ1's ass in a drag race... ...what the Isuzu has going for it is it's very linear (not really much lag, and it pulls from idle, unlike the 2.2.) and easy to drive.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...
