Auto best but bit thirstier. V8 is ultimate but 16mpg - diesel about 26mpg (same as shogun).

TD5 is a 5 cylinder 2.5 turbo - think it's about 138bhp normally - 198bhp chipped. I found the standard one was reasonably quick - would cruise M4 100mph no probs - auto I had.

you only get 198 hp if you chip and include intercooler cx option

otherwise they chip to 160-170 ish

Yes my 300tdi is totally mint - just put a towhitch on it - so clean underneath it looks 2 yrs old not 8!!!

Got to be honest the 300tdi engine is great offroad but not as refined as the TD5 onroad.

If mine was a V8 though I don't think you could tell the difference between it and the newer shape vehicle.

The Discovery appreciation gang make me smile. It always goes " Discoverys are great, but........." then you get a list of all the stuff that breaks or falls off. Is this not a bit of a contradiction? Are we not confusing poor quality and unreliability with "Character" and "Fun"?
