Well funny it is not. Just had a 9k quote on a new engine for a 50 k mile LR3.

Wrong from the same dealer that sold the car new.

Any positive idea is welcome and will be credited. No nicking of stuff.
So, if you have any good ideas, let them be heard
We want the 3.2 l engine and auto box from the ford ranger in the Defender

Is your 70% by value, parts count or ... what?

If it's value - the usual method of assessing content - well, you're too clever for me. So, help me here ... tell me where these bits come from as by value they make up far more than the 30% that in your opinion doesn't come from China:

1. Engine
2. Gearbox
3. Bodyshell

Choose whichever model you like ...



Just curious, like

Our 18mth old X5 required a new 4k gearbox, but I'd never slam BMWs.

You'll find horror stories for any marque if you spend your life trawling through Google.


Give it up Mister, you're boring our arses rigid pal.

Totally agree bored to death of this slagging stuff off every fault you find with land rover you will find with others like I found with BMW last night
I bought my motors to do a job and they do it well
Just the same as my Black shadow suit

Like everything in life we all have our favourites!! I must confess I join in this thread to have some lighthearted banter with others. I just happen to like what I drive at the moment it does what I want and that's not to say others would do the same.
