    1997 Defender - ballpark value?

    So I realize the real answer to a question like this is, whatever someone will pay for it.

    1997 Defender TDI 110 about 380,000 km. Average condition for age. Runs fine, but brakes, steering...
  18. Re: Please help!!: Conquerer Conquest battery charging indicator

    I left my transformer in - it was a mission to get it out because of how it was installed. Simply connected the new battery charger to the AC breaker. That Victron is Bluetooth, so you can mount it...
  19. Re: Please help!!: Conquerer Conquest battery charging indicator

    Indeed- thatís the basic setup. Does the van have wiring to the front to connect to the vehicle via BH plugs, and does the vehicle have powe routed back there?
  20. Re: Please help!!: Conquerer Conquest battery charging indicator

    yes. That’s what mine had. Very bad for battery life, too. Any smart charger (ctek, victron) will do a much better job. Consider contacting Jacques at Bushpower. He can supply the victron at a...
  21. Re: Please help!!: Conquerer Conquest battery charging indicator

    Much depends on the year. My 2012 came standard with a “dumb” battery charger that looks like it was engineered in the 70s. Garbage. If it still has something like that in, yank it immediately and...

    Re: someone needs to buy this, new SQ7

    That is a beautiful car. I had the boring Q5 2.0 - probably the best car Iíve ever owned. 4 years - not a single, solitary, issue. Zero. And happy all day in Germany at 190km/h plus.
  24. Re: Ponta Malongane... will a disco sport make it?

    We got stuck there briefly in a D4 - but towing an off-road caravan, and even then only because someone on an ATV pulled out from a blind spot which caused a quick stop.
