Scania L94UB 1207 is pretty bad for rattles, as is 2534. However 2534 is still almost in A1 condition mechanically, so that makes up for the rattles. Did 3314 sound good lol?

I wonder how the hills L series ones would be by now if they had been retrofitted with the ZFs in the later built L94UBs (late 2006-2007)? It'd be very interesting to see.
