    Discovery 4 Re: Is it my fault- Discovery 4 in hospital.

    In my experience - and this will cause debate and freak out the "older" folk - leave the engine dirty.

    Any leak - water, oil etc shows up IMMEDIATELY! This mindset recently saved my D3 V8 motor...

    Re: tdv6 vs v8 maintenance cost

    Currently I have a D3 V8. This is my 4th Landy and by far the most comfortable and least maintenance expensive of the lot.

    It's an 05 and I bought it on 207,000 going in next week for 280,000...

    Thanks Douglas

    How do they hold up on wet tar though?
    What realistic mileage do you think you will get?
    Are they good on rocks from a sidewall perspective?

    Thanks for that - side walls ok considering the weight of the D3?

    At R2k per tyre you can replace all 4 for less than a set of Cooper or BFG

    Re: D2 or D3

    I went from 04 D2 TD5 to 05 D3 V8. Both are “dans kerk en werk” vehicles. Comfort, space and overall WOW on the D3 any day. Maintenance is always important but that goes for anything in life.
