    Re: Lorry / Car accident

    Having driven a few trucks (horse and trailer) I am surprised at how few cars get damaged on the road.

    As stated above, the general public have no idea of the lack of visibility at close quarters,...

    I have only seen 1 advertised, it was sold within half an hour at the asking price.

    The one I got was never advertised, I...

  4. RangeRover Re: Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache to look at buying one

    Ok. So force was the wrong word.

    If you are parked on a level surface, yes the car adjusts down, other wise it thinks you are off road.

    The active suspension is just that, active.

    Re: Is this it?

    No problem :)

    The thing is all new models are tested on the old test tracks and the new ones created to challenge the new tech. The new LR's are still built for Africa.

    The biggest failures are...

    Re: Discovery 4 transmission noise

    My feeling is it may have more to do with degraded gearbox oil and/or bad/worn friction plates, rather than transfer case.


    If you think of a manual transmission, you get vibrations when your...

    Re: What have you done with your Discovery today?

    My D3 has been remapped, the D4 not. Doubt we will ever do it.


    In my opinion, you do not need to "mess with the tuning" of the D3/4 or 5.

    My map came from Europe, and was custom mapped from...

  13. Re: Has the LR Discovery died as an offroad vehicle? Or LR the brand in general?

    Then we must be doing something wrong :o

    All the Disco owners I know still always travel with wire, cable ties, duck tape etc and not laptops >:D and Gasman carries Pap for his air shocks. ;D

    To be fair to the relevance of this thread

    You don't take a pressure washer to any engine as you may, well probably will have issues, so not a Disco/LR thing as you correctly stated.

    Discovery 4 Re: 7 years ago on this day

    I have had my D3 for 9 years, I doubt it will ever be sold.

    Still miss my Series 3 109.
  17. Re: Has the LR Discovery died as an offroad vehicle? Or LR the brand in general?

    Here is the thing, probably 90% of LR's sold are Disco's, so that is what there customers want. The people buying them new want the latest tech.

    Most breakdowns are mechanical, all ECU's can be...

  19. Re: Has the LR Discovery died as an offroad vehicle? Or LR the brand in general?

    All I see is a lack of knowledge and the "electronics" that LR uses.

    BTW
    LR test the new models on the same but modified test track that they tested Defenders.

    Edit
    by modified, I mean they...

    Changing a crank means an engine rebuild. You don't just swap it out like an injector.

    In rock mode you never switch off anything, as you want all wheels to turn at the same rate.

    Because D3 and D4 owners don't post here anymore, for over 2 years.

    Sick and tired of the snide remarks, and google experts.

    Other LR owners have also stopped posting, due to this.
