Check if the timing belt has been done & at what mileage.

Unless it's a proper Land Rover warranty it will be a waste of money 🙄 when you read the small print not much is covered

Highly recommend an Nanocom Evolution or IID tool diagnostic unit. Or your end up spending a fortune at dealers chasing simple faults.
They both cost about 400 but mine has paid for itself several times over.

Well, I bought the LR3, and I am one very happy chap.

The vehicle is immaculate, inside and out.

Full LR service history, and all the belts have been done, (by LR)

And boy, did I enjoy the drive home.....

Also, I have already started to look at buying the iid tool...!

find yourself a good local independent Land Rover specialist and let them service etc for you, it will be time and money well spent, have a look on the disco3 forum, there's bound to be some recommendations for local garages on there
