Interesting thing this thread has prompted me to look at the DVLA vehicle check to find our Discovery was taken off the road 6yrs ago, the blue 90 3yrs ago but the '72 Safari below is still taxed/MOTd and the '68 green Series IIa is still MOTd but currently SORNd.
And worth a lot now David - seems only a few years ago S111's were still 1200 - forget that now.

Agreed, Limestone was a great colour. White in comparison looks awful - bit like black on a Landy.

>>> worth a lot now David

Do you know ever since we gave up the LR life I've never been prompted to look at values but (and yes I know it's just a trader asking price) 10k for something not as nice as our Safari... wow.

Land Rover Series Iii 4 CYL 2.3 3dr

Seriously Stig, it's no joke - I thought I had enough security on our 110 CSW but when a man/woman team could not get it running and they are prepared to work together in a busy little Lidl car park mid-morning the week before Christmas in full view of tills and customers coming and going and tow out a 12 seater 110 backwards with an Astravan you know they are unbelievably brazen, will stop at nothing and simply have no fear of getting caught. The 110 was towed away like this not 500 yds from the local cop shop never to be seen again. No CCTV, no ANPR sighting, no patrols saw anything once it left Lidl.

Basically security is all about layers - but if they want it they will have it - many are simply lifted onto low loaders.

You need ALL these;

A decent tracker, a hidden DIY fuel solenoid switch, a decent pro fit immobiliser, an externally locked bonnet, a Disklok steering wheel cover and a FULL pedal box locking cover.

That will cut down the risk but cause you a load of hassle as you need to use them ALL EVERY time you leave it out of sight.

Google 'land rover security' and sit back for a few evening's reading...

Without sounding rude 5 to 6 k won't get much at the mo the way the prices are going
A customer had his 90 nicked a few month back think it was a 300 tdi it eventually turned up recently it had been used in ram raids so was quite damaged and the insurance wanted 7 k for him to buy it back

Yeh, I know Max, it's a really sorry state of affairs and a shit that you got yours nicked. I find your story quite unbelievable (read the thread before although had not picked up that they towed it - that's insane!)...

If any consolation I will be aiming for a utility type look, steel wheels, bashed panels, in the vain hope that it looks shit and unattractive rather than a blinged up, alloy wheeled, pristine looking vehicle... Plus all the security features I can install

Not trying to be negative but I looked into all the stuff out there so much. The ones I listed are the accepted layers that most go for once they have had one nicked so do it all before it goes!

I used to carry a 4m SIB and a 25hp outboard in the back of a series III SWB pickup. It was a very long time ago so I can't remember exactly how I fitted it in. I've got a feeling it overhung the edges a bit
