    Did'nt want to sound slim or funny here, and of course you do what you think is right.

    Yes the body is perfect, excellent interior....But air suspension.....Brakes....Gear Box .drive shafts...Definitely need tyres

    You nailed it...My thinking exactly,,,,
    Somehow I am going to take a knock...going forward or backwards..Money and time already lost
    Can not spent 150 K on a 2006 model vehicle......and will not

    Oppies ,,Yes can buy a 2007 running model for that money ...
    I will rather take this punch and get myself a nice well serviced landy

    Hi LRTDV6

    scan the Toyota and VW dealers they sometimes trade in D3 V8's and if your timing is right you can pick them up between R90-110K as is, i.e. without warranty. They normally flog those vehicles to the trade.

    Good luck!

    Like in a NICE running D3 , at R 160000.........if, after lots of contemplation, constipation, consideration and reading you still feel that there is just NO way that you could live without a D3TDV6

    Another Thought from the Vrystater.........

    Get that R 40 000 back by selling this hot babe again............................................. ..................40 000 in the Piggybank

    Sell your real LR at a good price............................................. ...........................................+ 100 000 in the Piggybank

    Put what you would've spent on the hot babe in the Sparvarkie........................................ .....+ 100 000 in the Piggybank

    now, with your R 240 000 cash in the piggybank, go replace your real LR with a newer real LR.

    Petri....I like your thinking.....on paper very nice and probable possible....

    In Practice

    Hot babe yes 35 to 40 K
    Old faithful not much more than 40 K (although 200 K worth to me)
    My budget on project Max 80 K

    In the spaarvarkie 160 K + boelie the saving account for another 40 K

    Yes 200 K can also buy a nice real LR but the Idea to sit without old faithful send shivers down my spine
    If a tractor get stuck I take it out with the Landy...and the Mahindra is useless as a launching vehicle
    and Swambo made me promise that I will not launch with hot babe should I get her fixed...Can you Imagine with a 240 K Landy ?
    (She is the one braking on the road (Flinstone effect) due to rusty floorboard)

    Last night between 01h00 and 04h00 I thought sell hot babe and cut my losses
    Take what I get from that and do a bolt and nut redo on old Faithful..Top to bottom recon, respray Interior, bushes, coil springs, shocks etc...

    Time will teach...

    ........AND you dont have to throw another R 80k++ at something you're not sure of, and that's assuming that the R 80k you spent on the engine alone is a success.

    A car does'nt only have an engine - but you know that.

    I think you know you're on the right track.

    Next time, before you go buy something like a broken luxury barge, get a welding brush and scratch the itch..............
