at the age you're looking at, I'd be far more concerened about condition rather than if it's a hardtop or station wagon, the station wagons always hold their value as they are less likely to have been used by farmers etc than a hard top. unlike many on here, I like the later Puma engined versions just as much as the earlier TD5s etc, and bearing in mind it's 9 years since they built any TD5s they are starting to get a bit long in the tooth, although there are still plenty of good ones about! I guess one of the benefits of the TD5s is that there are plenty of opertunities for extracting a bit more oomph from the engine, such as cam changes, bigger turbo's and intercoolers etc, they can be made to be reasonably sporty if that's your thing still, I'll stick to my ratty old tdci puma for now, bought it 6 months old as a demo model from the local dealership, it's not missed a beat so far but it's not been near the dealers since I bought it, local garage does all the servicing etc as they know more about them than the dealers do! there again, it get an easy life, doesn't tow much and only the occasional bit of off-roading ............

So I'm currently considering 2 local ones. Although different accounts I'm almost certain they're for the same "dealer":

http://www.ebay.co.uk/ulk/itm/152048071527

http://www.ebay.co.uk/ulk/itm/272220607673

And the reason I think they're the same "dealer":

http://www.ebay.co.uk/ulk/itm/152061894940

(Love that pick up but too impractical)

not something I've done myself, but I'm led to believe that there are "options" for sportier cams, the TD5s have been around for a while now so the Land Rover clubs who race them will have explored any opertunity to tweak the motors, even just a mild tweak of the box of tricks under the seat, with a bigger intercooler and turbo adjustment will liven the performance, without going daft n risking any engine problems, plus a good aftermarket exhaust will let it breath easier the last of the TD5 discos were very different to the earliest ones, so there's room to improve the same motor in a 90

I'd go for the pickup and just take the truck cab body off n fit a full canvas, would look great with that body colour, plus it's got the body colour wheel arches so may have been ordered with other factory fitted extras
and yes, does look like they're from the same dealer

I would love to, trust me... However, SIB plus engine under a canvas cover... No thanks... These things lack security as it is without worrying about what can be lifted from the back.

Also need to fit 1 extra seat.

So why do you think the vehicle with more mileage and steel wheels is more expensive?

Thanks - but I understand how to tune a motor, one of my current td5's is naughty, but as I asked, where are these performance 'cams' that can be purchased and fitted to a TD5 - never seen them either fitted to a landy or advertised?

I doubt the bits would be available off the shelf, most likely a limited number built to order, but I'll ask for you

think the canvas is probably more secure than the locked doors to be honest, n at least they'd do less damage getting in it's definitely going to be snug in the back with an additional seat + outboard + sib

maybe the one with the steel rims is in better condition than the one with ally's, like I said earlier, condition is far more important than mileage or trim level at that sort of age, I'd be giving them a really good looking over before buying, especially as it's sooooo easy to swap bits about to make them appear to be something there not ..........
