    Havent done speedo yet. But will if need be when I get the IID tool next week.

    Spare has to be deflated by 50% to fit and its tight. Plan to remove heatshield later and then it should fit fine.

    Had to grind the outside rim of the calipers down as these rims still touched by 1mm.

    Other than that, they are great.
    Yep the postman is late with that iidtool

    Yes, managed to patch it for a spare, saw a Hankook lying there, Disco4 size, had a huge gash ripped through the sidewall due to a pot hole.

    Hahahaha , Yip Regard , that is sort of the plan. Bought it 4 years ago for a steel , she has been a absolutely fantastic vehicle , never let me down. The plan was to eventually move to a Disco 3 but as time has gone on i dont see the need ( I also have a RR Fattie ) I have decided to spend a bit of time and coin on the Disco as I have planned a trip in December and there will be many more to come. Just a matter of interest , my boet also has a Disco 2 td5. He bought it 8 years ago with 90k km , It now has 275K km and also NEVER let him down. I have maintained that vehicle since day 1 and the only thing I did besides general maintenance was air bellows at the back. They are proper vehicles if looked after properly.

    Cheers

    You should be able to run the Lte router natively from the solar controller, they normally use 12v.

    Very nice, I think that has sorted what is in my opinion the biggest issue of the D4 v8.
