Don't worry Codders, vehicle arrives at the docks 12noon tomorrow, should clear customs by 3.30pm and they will have the transporter ready to collect it, then cleaned, polished and accessories fitted Friday, I collect hopefuly that afternoon.

I will post pics as soon as I can and await the 'ribbing' ( ) that some may give me, but guess what? I won't give a stuff because the money saved is going towards my first ever RIB, now that is for another day but I think I know the one I am aiming for hence the strong towing vehicle

Oh! any volunteers in the SE who are willing to give 4x4 hints & a few lessons from experience in exchange for a slap up meal and a few beers?

Oh no, here we go again!

Good luck with it, Pete. My earlier wishes weren't tongue-in-cheek, they were, and are, genuine wishes of good luck for you and the vehicle. I would much rather hear a success story than complaints of poor quality and dis-satisfaction. You never know, I could be persuaded to look again at Land Rover as I'm in no hurry to buy, and I'm not seriously in the market for a 4x4 until next year. I remain open minded about Land Rover, Mitsubishi, and yes, even Kia!

Nightmare I have just been told that the car has a heated rear screen AND wiper, this is not on the standard model, I didn't ask for it, it is all in the original price of 17,500 what can I do?

That was just the start, some bugger has had the cheek to fit locking wheel nuts as well again all in the price

Do a search for POCUK forums which is a technical site for Shogun/Pajero owners. There seems to be just as many shortcomings as LR products.
