  1. Filip Since buying my first Freelander (new) I have loved the black car with beige leather interior. I think it is a great colour combination and closely matched my CSK. This one is an insurance right off with very minimal damage and needs a wing, which I have, a bonnet and a windscreen to repair it. The seats look like the softer leather also but the edge of the drivers seat needs repaired. The mileage does put me off but the fact that it appears well cared for is very much in favour. The wood is definitely black the Walnut doesn't go that dark and the maple is quite orangie. I am very torn as it would be a shame to destroy a rare car I think I need to do some research on it once I have collected it.
  2. The car has 188k on it and when I checked the MOT history it would appear to have been well cared for with only a few minor fails like bulbs and gators. The question for me is do I keep the black wood kit and change the colour of my wood or do I sell it. The car is for spares for my own one although I suspect this one is easier to fix than my own is to finish.
  3. Bowie I am very hopeful that it is a changed bootlid it make the purchase a complete result if it is a Lindley. I get the car next week when I will see it for the first time in the flesh 😲
  4. Dyslexia rools ko Mother of pearl
  5. I have just bought a P38 becuase it has an LPG system that I am going to fit into my P38. All the woodwork including the steering wheeel has black wooden trim which personally have never come across in anything other that a Linley. I know for a fact it isn't one because it is badged as a Vogue and the steering wheel isn't inlaid with mpoother of pearl. Anybody seen the black wood before?
  6. I am convinced. I really really want it.
  7. Yes I want it. Yes I can afford it if I really really want to I have space at the front of my house for at least three more land rovers and an acre feild to the rear which is empty except for someone elses L322 and my boat. My wife doesn't live with me at the moment and has said, a while back, I can have 10 cars and am only at 7 at the moment Not withstanding the above and as much as I would like to buy this car my head is going to rule my heart and I am going to be sensible. I need to spend some time making sure the ones I have are up to standard.
  8. The oil light came on the the Green one and wreaked the engine after oil starvation so the one that I am buying tomorrow is a right off to donate a very low milage engine. The one I bought yesterday is purely a money making excersise as it has a very valuable private registration. My black one is still going strong and now has 202k on it.
  9. And my other two discos my P38 my CSK and my Mini I suppose
  10. There is only two reasons that are stopping me. 1. I need to buy a house first and 2. I have already bought Discovery 2 this week and am about to buy another tomorrow 😲
  11. Would you believe that is the end game however it is much more anal that. My Land Rovers are mostly black with either a brown or beige leather interior. This L322 is also black with a cream leather interior. Boy I really want this but must restrain myself.
  12. But I have a 3.9 CSK and a 4.6 P38 already!!! My mini is fairly economic.
  13. Bowie You are supposed to be talking me out of this. I need to buy a house before I buy another car
  14. I have found a 2009 Range Rover L322 Autobiography V8 at a price that is very tempting. I don't really want to buy a car at the moment BUT I m really tempted the only issue with the car however is that it is a 5l petrol.
  15. My first job is to buy the cottage I have been renting for the last 3 years. Get a Visa for my wife of 3 years to live in the UK. Build a new house in the field. Build a garage and relocate my CSK in it before it dissolves completely. Find a donor vehicle to allow me to start the CSK rebuild. Still require a 1990 2 door shell (so if one of our European friends can help before we fall out (Brexit) I will be eternally grateful). Fit an engine in my green Disco 2. Fit a gearbox in my Mini Cooper Convertible. Change the front axle and gearbox on my Black Disco 2 and do repairs to the body shell. Fix the o rings and heater fans on my Range Rover P38 May even buy another Range Rover to add to my fleet. And if there is time I will do some work to earn money to pay for the above.
  16. Surely the tensioner pulley should take up the slack. Anything else would seem to imply something hasn't gone back together properly.
  17. Why don't you get air valves, two T connectors and some 4mm air pipe and blow them up manually. Also useful if the compressor develops a fault. I inflated mine manually for over a year.
  18. It was but got there in the end.
  19. Just trying to save my personal reg plate 😅
  20. After 3 years and two engine changes the last one being an absolute nightmare my P38 sailed through it's MOT today. Still have some little things to do like a full valet of the interior and new O rings to the heater matrix but at least now I can use it.
  21. I fitted one to an 85 Vogue but when it was installed the whole pulley system was not alinghned before I could start it oone of the valves dropped and I couldn't get the engine to turn a full rotation. I then stripped the engine back and rebuilt the top end and fitted new camb shaft etc. Was a fantastic engine and ran well until I broke the car up.
  22. If you get treads filled with mud either AT or road tyres then they are not going to get traction. AT's have a better grip however when I was trying to get my cars out of my (very muddy) field the disco on road tyres just sat and spun and needed a tractor to finally pull it out. My Range Rover on grabbers generally made better progress but couldn't get over the hump at the gate because of the mud. I left the RR in the field until a heavy frost and it drove out very easily. (I needed the tractor as all my cars were stranded in the field (lol)
