Budget 18k max.

Used for:
Towing 6.3 rib 2-4 times a year max, 100mile a pop
Longevity key, to be owned for 8-10 years
Much less than 10k a year for mainly short journeys.
Perhaps for 6 people on short journeys occasionally (110 then)

Currently looking at 06 or 07 D4HSE or 110, sub 60k

I like D4 as comfy, but will it last? Too many electrics, will it age and lose money more?

On that budget 110 utility don't think you will get a D4 at that money
How many passengers

I sold my 05 D3 this Sumer with 75k SE for 12k so I would agree for 18k you will be looking at a D3 not a D4!
I dad mine for 7.5 years great car loved it never let me down, liked it so much I had to have anther so got the D4 HSE they just do everything I want and do it very well.

Ooops! Sorry. Meant D3. Yep, 09/10 too expensive. (Not very up on LRs at all. Always been cars)
Is the D3 any good? The real old Discos look like rust buckets! What is better about the D4?

Nice! If a little Gangsta Mick

It'll normally be 2 up, but occasionally 6. It'll be the old mans run about, transporting mowers/ladders or tools on the odd occasion. Plus taking boat each season, brothers caravan there and back each year and occasional (very occasional) 3 generation family days (6).

My D3 after 7+ years showed no Singh of rust and would clean up like new!
My D4 has 3lt engine the D3 had 2.7 with a 6 speed gear box D4 has a 8 speed which is so nice just more refined not saying the D3 was a bad drive just it has got better & better MPG too.
It has also gone very Range Rover in side, up market less utilitarian than B4.

With our low mileage the mpg and less gears, smaller engine aren't an issue really. Mate's wife has one and its nice enough inside. Any reliability problems?
