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

    I appreciated these photos, they have persuaded me not to take my car to baboons pass. You always only see the pictures of the open track. I don't worship my car, but it's unnecessary to mess it up...
  2. RangeRover Re: Was Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache - now Range Rover Supercharged

    Hi everyone

    I have a quick update.....

    I bought Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs and put them on 19". I had to skim the brake calipers, it was perfectly fine on tar. BUT, when we hit the river, the...

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

    I can't believe you are all trying to figure out which road.

    It was none of the above haha

    The road between Lillies quarters and Shell in Hillcrest, that goes passed the springside nature...
  5. RangeRover Re: Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache to look at buying one

    So I'm only in the second week of owning the car. First week the tyres were not blown up correctly, too soft and on a full tank, I only did about 30km on the highway. All the other driving was 10km...
  6. RangeRover Re: Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache to look at buying one

    My thought was exactly that - just stack the rocks to make it, I've done it before and it's part of the fun/challenge.

    I was wondering about lifting it, will call a Peter Street.
  7. RangeRover Re: Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache to look at buying one

    I also thought it's quite low, but I compared it to a LC200 and it's higher and the approach and departure angles are better. I honestly thought the LC would be better. The D4 is better though.
  8. RangeRover Re: Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache to look at buying one

    The worst thing is that I got that fuel consumption without uses the horses. But I also didn't go on the highway, when I used the horses, it was in the 25-30 L/100km

    Thanks for the advice on the...
  9. RangeRover Re: Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache to look at buying one

    Thanks for the advice on the side steps. Didn't realize they could come off.

    I am loving the RR thus far, it's just thirsty, getting 19.7l/100km @ town driving only. Haven't been long distance...
  10. RangeRover Re: Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache to look at buying one

    I can't believe nobody suggested Duratrac so far, everyone says General grabbers. I just checked out the difference, it's huge! Duratrac looks amazing off-road.
  11. RangeRover Re: Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache to look at buying one

    That's a good idea. I'll do that. I realize the only issue with the RR is the clearance, departure and approach angles. Otherwise it's all good.

    Got to a second set of rims, unfortunately no BFs...
  12. RangeRover Re: Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache to look at buying one

    Thats not quite true, I owned a Prado for 6 months. Bought it for R150k, it was the cheapest one around. I put on a brand new roof rack, snorkel, dash cover, Old Man Emu suspension, total costing...
  13. RangeRover Re: Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache to look at buying one

    Imagine seeing it doing extreme 4x4, that's going to look cool ;D
    I bought this to go places no Range Rovers have gone before. I want to take it to Baboons pass, but will need to go with experienced...
  14. RangeRover Re: Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache to look at buying one

    Thanks.

    I see see you're an Audi guy. I've owned a 2012 A6 2.0 tdi. Amazing car, only sold it because I immigrated for a while. Then I bought a 2013 A8 3.0 tdi Quattro. What an amazing car, mine...
  15. RangeRover Re: Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache to look at buying one

    This is one of the reasons I will happily pay whatever bills are coming my way in the Range Rover. I just came out of a Ford Ranger (2018). It was the MOST uncomfortable vehicle. I could not even go...
  16. RangeRover Re: Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache to look at buying one

    I'm busy going through all the comments I missed.

    What I forgot to mention is that, I don't care how many times I break down - there WILL be a grin on my face. LR is just the best and I will be...
  17. RangeRover Re: Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache to look at buying one

    I just saw your car at Overland Worx yesterday.
  18. RangeRover Re: Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache to look at buying one

    Just did that 5 min ago. Took my wife for a drive. It's crazy. On my way back to Hillcrest yesterday, I only realized at PMB that there is sport mode. So I floored it just before drummond, where it's...
  19. RangeRover Re: Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache to look at buying one

    FEEDBACK ON MY DECISION

    First of all, thank you to everyone to contributing, you have all played a role in helping me decide what to do.

    I have to single out Peter Street from Overland Worx....
  20. RangeRover Re: Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache to look at buying one

    I had the RR 4.4 Diesel. Turbo went, replaced it and then a pipe broke because of the oil being in places it should from the turbo issue. I'm not mechanically inclined, so preferred to give it back...
  21. RangeRover Re: Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache to look at buying one

    You are quoting the wrong car. I'm quoting the older version which was before they were bought out...

    I have also owned a S60, which my mom now has and the only issue it had was a cut in the turbo...
  22. RangeRover Re: Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache to look at buying one

    Lyk my hierdie is 'n Oosthuizen probeem. Ek is ook een. Stuur besonderhede van die Prado.
  23. RangeRover Re: Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache to look at buying one

    Too small, don't take 3 car seats and I've owned a tuna, honestly, the hardest ride I've ever had. I hated the car. With that being said, the 2005 Prado I had was a lot more comfy.
  24. RangeRover Re: Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache to look at buying one

    I'm in Durban and come to JHB now and then. Have bought most my cars in JHB/CT, so don't mind travelling. Please hook me up, 074 285 5555
  25. RangeRover Re: Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache to look at buying one

    You have no idea the resistance I have had to have to not buy one. But at R550k for a 6 year old car with 150,000km. I really don't know. We want to buy cash and will only have R300k.
  26. RangeRover Re: Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache to look at buying one

    It's a 2009 V8 (Yes, 4.4L naturally aspirated). It's a retired guy, who bought it from another old lady's estate. I know the family who brought Volvo into SA, so that helps.
    I was thinking the...
  27. RangeRover Re: Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache to look at buying one

    I paid R430,000 for the RR big body. But even that was too small. I built a structure that fits exactly into the Disco 4, it takes 12 ammo boxes and really makes life easy. It didn't fit the RR and...
  28. RangeRover Re: Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache to look at buying one

    That's what I was thinking. Can you maybe help me source one for sale from a client, which you know has been looked after?
  29. RangeRover Re: Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache to look at buying one

    Thank you for the extremely detailed response and giving me all these details.
    Is there anything to look out for when shopping? We will ultimately do hectic off roading. Is the SE or HSE still...
  30. RangeRover Re: Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache to look at buying one

    Thank you for sharing. I had to call the Director of LR SA to get Durban LR to take back the Disco 4, because they refused. My wife and I keep saying that it's the most comfortable car we've driven....
  31. RangeRover Re: Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache to look at buying one

    How many cars do you see for sale with 400,000km??? It's not debatable.
  32. RangeRover Re: Disco 4 - Is it worth the headache to look at buying one

    You are not helping with the itch. I guess I should grow up and do the wise thing. Problem is my wife got me into 4x4 and now all I want to do is go on trips, go back to Vleesbaai dunes, Atlantis,...

    Background

    2017 Feb
    We bought a Disco 4 with about 120,000km from LR Durban. It was just outside of warranty, but I wasn't concerned because of the 6 month CP Act. In the 6 weeks we owned it, it...
