    Discovery 4 Re: 2012 D4 v8 high mileage & other questions

    So we are looking at a 2012 D4 SE v8, about 120,000kms. We do not have any service & maintenance records from previous owners, so we do not know what initial actions to take. However, a few questions...

    Discovery 4 Re: 2nd spare wanted

    I have the same wheels with Hankook Dynapro's on them and they are sitting in the garage because I switched to 18" rims.

    You are welcome to borrow one for your trip.

    Discovery 4 Re: Disco 4 V8 2012 - To buy or not to buy...

    I picked mine up a year ago. Was a 2012 D4 V8 SE with 65,000km on the clock. I got it for R395k and they threw in a Landrover Experience voucher. Yours seems to be pretty much in line with that...

    Re: Disco 4 in Namibia - advice please

    Wind noise is definitely present particularly at high speeds but no worse that I expected. Fuel consumption at high speed is also worse by about 1.5l/100km, also expected. It's only on for the...

    No I did not fit a long range tank and the carrier. My justification was that most of the time the vehicle is living a city life and the carrier is just a nuisance so I would rather put some fuel on...

    Re: Disco 4 in Namibia - advice please

    So the trip did happen and it was amazing. Sadly I did not do it in the Disco. I stupidly decided to send the vehicle in for a holiday check a few days before I was due to leave. The vehicle went in...

    Re: What have you done with your Discovery today?

    Yes, I had to grind down the fins on the callipers a little. Was quick to do and only needed to shave off a few mm. You may well be fine with the 65 profile as you are not running a spacer on your D3.

    Yay, first time I get to really post in this thread ;D

    After much deliberation, I finally did the D4 18" mod. Got some old rims, fixed them up and got them coated. Then I fitted some 265/65/18 BFG...

    Discovery 4 Re: which tyres?

    I did a test on this theory comparing the GPS to the km readings in the clock. Over 4 trips the difference was less than 0.25%. So no problems on the clock. My speedo is also off by a bit though.

    Re: Discovery SCV6 Reliability

    I had quite a few issues with mine. Spent a total 6 weeks in the shop since I bought it a year ago.

    Mostly the gremlins seem to have been related to a faulty Throttle Sensor (TPS). All fixed now...

    Re: Discovery 4 TDV6 sudden stop!

    Not sure its relevant to the SDV6 but my V8 was cutting out at low speeds particularly when slowing down. Turned out to be the Throttle Positioning Sensor (TPS).

    I am sure that with the right tyres and the right driver this thing will put my D4 and probably a lot of dedicated 4x4's to shame. If I can afford one I will get...

    Re: Wanted - 5 x Compomotive 18" rims for D4

    Oryx I see you have put your 19" rims up for sale on the classifieds. I assume that means that you found some 18's. Did you go the D3 rim or Compomotive route?

    Can you send some pics of the mod?

    Definitely don't look like KO2's though which I would have preferred. Too many comments on poor wet performance on the KO's.
