    Not sure about that route, haven't driven it in a while.

    Most informative video to watch

    After watching the video on the 3500kg towing capacity thread, I watched this one.

    If you can go all the way to the end, I think you will find it very informative.

    Discovery 1 Re: Help me decide please?!?!?!?!

    Long shot, but the valve stem seals on this engine has a bit of a reputation of being a bastard to fit properly.

    They tend to just come loose.
    Also check compression.

    Re: 300Tdi Oil Leak

    I had a oil filter that always turned loose.
    The only leak in that area I ever had.
    Turned out that Coopers filters didn't stay tightened, now I use Mahle with no problems.

    I've found that the recommended pressure isn't always the ideal pressure for all tyres.

    It will help if you do the 4psi test and find the best pressure for your tyres.

    I don't think that is a true statement.

    Even if you can filter out the oil so that it looks new it won't be the same after 10k km.
