The old man had a six cylinder Princess back in the day. Sounded like a bucket of bolts on full lock. It got recalled for new engine mounts that moved the engine back and improved the driveshaft angles.

Ah, those were the days Quality, as you say M

Totally ... my 4.8 X5 is parked when the white stuff appears, but fook me ... you'd need spare trousers after abusing the 'loud' pedal the way it drives for such a big ship ... try passing a petrol pump though .. it does enjoy a sip or two Horses for courses .. I hear whats being said, but I'd still need a lot of persuasion to buy LR with the build issues of the past ..

Drove one nearly 20 years ago, in the wet spent more time sideways than straight, great fun when your 21.

Very powerful, but tail happy...... A true classic!

Try an 8 speed auto D4 next time you're in the market Biggy. Getting near an X5 on the road but, with real off road capability. The latest LR gear is light years ahead of what was being produced even 5/6 years ago.

Most definitely... After that Disco i owned, i vowed i would never buy another LR again
Even today it would take a lot of persuasion for me to consider something like a D3 or 4....

You know I might just do that, Ive always liked the look of them, and theres no doubting the off road side of things.. I fancied one for my works unit 3 years ago in commercial variant, knowing I would only keep it for three years ..... but then I saw the price tag 33000+VAT .. for a 4WD van?
