Hadn't thought of that Actually I use an old 200tdi Disco for the boat most of the time, usual slip is only 2 miles away and all 3 of my boys now have cars so I don't seem to use the 7 seats much these days. Downside is it looks the a NCP outside my place

Hey Dan

the smaller Landcruiser does appeal, but the towing capacity is much lower at 2800kgs.

Biff

I've been trying to get the Landcruiser sellers down a bit, but there are several dealers buying up all the used late model Amazons at the moment and exporting them, they are paying top money for them.

Well Iíve been and done it.
Drove all the way to Honiton today and after a test drive put a deposit on a 55plate Silver Disco 3 HSE.

Hopefully picking it up next weekend.

The disco won out over the Amazon in the end as I was able to pick up a newer car with less miles, plus itís more like the Shogun size wise for parking in town etc. It is also very well thought out inside and being the HSE has all the toys.

What particularly attracted me to this car was the fact that although it has 87K miles on the clock, the engine, turbo and radiator were all replaced in July 07 at 39K miles under warrantee, so have only done 48K miles.

No pictures yet Iím afraid, but I now have to avoid being infected with Landrovius Bigotosis.

All other 4x4s are rubbish............Bugger, to late Iím infected.

Nasher.

Very nice Nasher - and very exciting - did you get that from Blackdown 4x4? - if you did they seem to have a good reputation

Have lots of fun in it and be proud of your Landrovius Bigotosis
