Conversely, thats exactly what would worry me .. if ,.. in this day and age something has to have a new engine at 39000 miles ... it isnt exactly a badge of honour .. hopefully it was a one off, and she gives you plenty of happy mileage

Thanks for all the nice comments.

Bigmuz

If they all needed a new engine at 39K it would worry me, the fact that many are still going strong at 125K plus leads me to believe it was a one off, probably a Turbo problem that led to other issues.

There's still of box full of stuff to go wrong on an HSE other than the lump.



Firstly, buy an EGR blanking kit from these guys http://www.bellautoservices.co.uk/ and get them fitted. The EGR's last 2 years max and are £250 a side to replace. When playing-up, your MPG will slide and you may not notice it.

More good news, there's a severe shortage of LR spare parts right now. Too many suppliers have gone bust. A pal hasn't had his then 3 week old LR Sport for 80 days as there are no airbags available for it, in the WORLD.

No problem, it's all part of the fun. I have one which was also preceeded by a Shogun. I know which one I'd prefer to own.

Don't worry Mollers I know what I'm letting myself in for.

The EGR blanking kit is already on the wish list along with a couple of other bits and pieces.

Anyone know anyone around here with a late Shogun?
Mines going down 'We buy any car' probably Tuesday but I'd like to try to get some money back on the 5 Dueler ATs that have only done 4K miles, and thought somebody may like to swap wheels over quickly.

Nasher.
