Remember to check it over properly - squaddies not know for being gentle but they are well serviced.
If you can get one with power steering - a lot of the MOD ones didn't have it.
Check chassis in following areas - on TOPs of outriggers - especially front ones. Front bulkhead beneath the vents - rear x member.
That's about it - old 2.5d not very quick but good - turbo version of it unreliable - 200/300tdi the ones to go for - or the V8 if you can stand costs!!!
Get used to kids waving at you and army drivers.
Mate bought an older Series III and it was great - we took forms up the DVLA and they gave age related numberplate - simple!!!
